About the Author
3dtotal Publishing 3dtotal 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 indispensable resources for every 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: Sketching from the Imagination: Fantasy, the Beginner's Guide to Digital Painting in Photoshop Elements and the successful Kickstarter campaign, Sketch Workshop.

The book is still satisfyingly thick at 320 pages. 50 artists are featured.
The sketches and artworks are really beautiful and inspiring. There's a lot of variety and the artists commentary talks about their love for sketching, inspiration and some tips. Even in black and white, the designs look terrific. Once again, I'm marvelled by the level of details and intricacy of the many sketches.
This particular volume focuses on sci-fi. I still see quite a significant portion on character designs, in sci-fi style of course. There are also the occasional mechas, sci-fi environments, alien plants, etc.
Most highly recommended to all who loves sketchbooks.
Well worth the money!
(See more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
Yes - I won't deny it - they really are only a showcase for the artists. BUT what a showcase!
And if you approach them with the right frame of mind they are an inspiration - hone your skills by copying some of the art; use the art as a base idea for your own expansion; just see how a certain artists does the thing you've been trying to do - robot arms, monster ears, etc.
Think "just a showcase" and you might not like it.... think "examples and ideas of amazing work" and you'll love it.
This applies to the other books in this set - I have them all and have found, out of the approx 1200 pages of art, only about a dozen that I don't like.
