    I'm using this blog to see some artbooks that I want to buy
    on http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/ Know this?

    Is a fantastic shop with free shipping in these countries
    http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/Countries-we-ship-to


    I recommend a book:


    15.01 / $20.32 / 13.16(shipping included)

    Here's a great tutorial style book for those interested in digital painting. Fantasy Workshop is a compilation of tutorials that have been published in monthly ImagineFX issues. If you are already a regular subscriber, you'll see very similar tutorials in Fantasy Workshop. The tutorials are split into three categories, namely Characters, Scenes & Stories and Manga. At the end is a short FXpose section, which like the magazine, features illustrations from individual artists.
    The tutorials are presented in a step-by-step manner with plenty of screenshots and well explained captions. Each artist will talk about their workflow, tips, techniques and shortcuts to creating digital art. More specifically for example, they will talk about how they create realism through texture, and also why they created it that way.
    Since the book is about mastering digital painting, you'll see tons of examples on how to recreate paint effects using software. By examples I mean they will show the digital tools used, menus, and settings. The software used are Painter and Photoshop but the art techniques are usually easily achievable in either software.
    There are also a few pages where the artists answer fans' questions relating to creating art.


    This is a recommended book for anyone into digital painting. There's enough variety featured for everyone to learn a new trick or two.

    - Mind's Eye to Digital Canvas - Jehan Choo

    I'll second that recommendation.... I purchased this book last year... It's a compilation of some of the best tutorials to appear in the monthly UK magazine, ImagineFX, of which I'm a big fan & purchase monthly....

    In the tutorial Quick Character Design Concept by Francis Tsai, Francis uses ArtRage 2.... Neat!!!


    Cheers
