The sixth book in the d'artiste series -- DIGITAL PAINTING 2 -- features Master Artists Don Seegmiller, Melanie Delon, Daniel Dociu, and Marta Dahlig. For the first time, Ballistic Publishing offers pre-order customers the opportunity to download the majority of the Photoshop/Painter brushes used by the Master Artists in their tutorials.
Each of the artists present their digital painting techniques through a series of in-depth tutorials. The 208-page book also contains the artists' personal gallery, the artists' work and thoughts, and an invited artist gallery, featuring work from some of the most talented digital artists in the world. The combination of artist interviews, their own artwork and art that inspires them, gives the reader a comprehensive and personal insight into the mind of the master artist -- their approaches, their techniques and what influences them in their own work.
Daniel Dociu, Melanie Delon, Don Seegmiller, and Marta Dahlig have worked on a number of high-profile game projects, how-to books, and teaching posts spanning the gamut of the digital painting landscape. Each artist provides wonderful insights into their approaches and thoughts on the direction and challenges of their careers. Each artist also covers in detail, their process from the initial concept, right through painting techniques and tricks to the completion of three major paintings. Each of the fully illustrated tutorials provides priceless tips on improving any artist's digital painting skills.
