5.0 out of 5 stars Another great volume of insight 18 July 2010
Length: 1:30 Mins
Digital Art Masters: Volume 5 is another great compilation of top quality art and insightful tutorials. If you have earlier volumes, you pretty much expected that. I've a wonderful time going through this thick 288-page book.

This time, art is categorised into 5 sections: Sci-Fi, Scene, Fantasy, Character and Cartoon. As usual, you see work created from all sorts of medium (2D & 3D), across a variety of art genre gravitating towards concept art. There are 3D modeling on different subjects, digital and background painting and many more.

The featured illustrations and galleries are beautiful and detailed. I can't begin to imagine the amount of time spent to create some of these inspiring illustrations, especially so when some of them are just personal projects.

There's plenty to learn from as there are to see. The artists share their techniques as they go through their process of creating the featured illustrations. The book is filled with all sorts of tips, ranging from matte painting, scene composition to even portrait drawing.

You can also visit the publisher's website for some free video tutorials.

Volume 5 is a great addition. Highly recommended to 3D modelers, digital painting artists and art lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Volume 3 packs more than the previous volumes 6 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Length: 0:20 Mins
Here's volume three of Digital Art Masters, compiled by 3D Total. There are 60 artists included, each showing how their image was created. This is 10 additional artists more than Digital Art Masters volume 2.

The book doesn't focus on any specific software, but the frequently used software are 3D Max, Maya and Photoshop. The art techniques used by the artists can be easily achieved using similar software.

Each artist talks about his working process, on techniques, challenges and inspiration behind each piece. Topics range from mundane things like choosing canvas size to technical talk like setting up shaders and bump maps. This is a work flow process book. There are plenty of tips given the variety of 60 quality artists.

The illustrations are mainly on scenes, characters, fantasy, sci-fi and a little bit on cartoon style. This time round, more 2D work are featured, compared to volume 2 which focuses more on 3D work.

This book is highly recommended to 3D and digital painting artists.
