About the Author

3DTotal Publishing3DTotal was founded in 1999 as a simple 3D resource website. Over the last decade the site has evolved into one of the premier CG art websites in the world, offering a variety of training products, an inspirational gallery, a free texture library and hundreds of free tutorials on a variety of subjects. In 2006, 3DTotal entered into partnership with Focal Press and launched the popular book series Digital Art Masters and Digital Painting Techniques. The premise for these books was to provide high quality content that would inspire and educate the next generation of digital artists. Featuring the work of top industry professionals, detailed tutorials and image breakdowns, these series have become firmly established as indispensible resources for any digital artist. After five successful years working with Focal Press, 3DTotal Publishing was launched in early 2010. As well as self-publishing the next volumes in the pre-existing Digital Art Masters and Digital Painting Techniques series, 3DTotal Publishing has launched a number of new titles including: Beginner's Guide to Digital Painting in Photoshop, ZBrush Character Sculpting, and Beginner's Guide to Manga.

By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 5 Sept. 2013
Format: Paperback
Length: 1:26 Mins
This is another insightful volume for the Digital Art Masters series.

50 artists are included and each one walks you through the process on how they created their artwork. There are examples from different styles of art, such as 3D, landscape, concept art, character designs, etc. It's illuminating to see and read about how the work evolves at each step of the workflow. The artworks included as wonderful.

Siamak Roshani, winner for the Portrait (Rendered) category in EXPOSE 11, also has a tutorial here. Other notable pieces would be the one with angel and death playing cards over someone else's deathbed by Hu Zheng and the hyper realistic 3D render of Bruce Lee by Alexander Beim. There are several sci-fi themed pieces with robots, mechas, spaceships and aliens. It's very impressive showcase of work all around.

The book has 288 pages instead of the 320 that Amazon has listed wrongly.

Highly recommended to digital artists.

I really love these book, just seeing what is hot and developing within the industry it self is worth the cost. It is also a great way to pick up hints and tricks as well.

def comes in handy when coming up with inspiration as well for my personal projects and finding out your own style.

Books like this for me make an intriguing read. As a professional 3d modeller in the VFX industry you tend to work to certain `rules' and `regulations' because of the production environment and most of the time the finished article is the brainchild of someone else and not your own. My point is, that a book like this enables me to be inspired by artists working entirely on their own, and seeing how they breath life into their own creations from start to finish. This in turn has an effect that makes me want to achieve the same thing. It's good to see (and hopefully learn) different techniques shown across the board, yet all enable the artist to create a singular image that tells a story in one way or another. This book is by no means a tutorial book but as I said more of an inspiration, as individual artists are given the chance to show off their artwork and explain how they came to achieve the final image, showing small snippets of concept art, rough sketches, al l the way through to the final chosen colour palette. The work shown in the book is of a high standard, and if you are in need of inspiration for your own images then look no further.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent collection of fantastic art 30 Dec. 2013
By Todd Groves - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I always look to the Digital Art Masters series as a form of inspiration and encouragement. As a 3D artist myself, I think it's always good to challenge yourself. So when I look through a DAM book, I know I will always find wonderful art that I can enjoy and appreciate. While simultaneously finding inspiration and ways to push my own skills to a higher level. I highly recommend Volume 8 and all previous volumes of Digital Art Masters. I can always pull one of the volumes off the shelf and find new inspiration and enjoyment, no matter how old (or new) the volume is. Enjoy.
