Dig­i­tal Paint­ing Tech­niques: Vol­ume 6

This year’s of­fer­ing of case­books not only takes us back to ba­sics, but far, far into the fu­ture, all within one book…

Au­thors Var­i­ous he an­nual ar­rival of the lat­est bumper crop of artis­tic tips and case­books from the DPT se­ries has now be­come some­thing of a wel­come tra­di­tion. Although each costly col­lec­tion could in some ways be seen as be­ing just a smidgeon on the samey side, there’s al­ways plenty for the most ob­ses­sive and heavy­wal­leted de­signer to get stuck into, and take away with them as ref­er­ence and in­flu­ence for their next work of dig­i­tal art.

Some of the best dig­i­tal artists in the world are on hand to of­fer tu­to­ri­als, of­fer­ing a fresh per­spec­tive on fun­da­men­tals such as light­ing ef­fects or cre­at­ing cus­tom brushes, or how it feels to forge a ca­reer in con­cept art. And then, as the lush pages turn, the chap­ters grow in com­plex­ity, with unique tips on the art of car­i­ca­ture, or how to craft your own sci-fi waste­lands from scratch.

The painters cho­sen have no prob­lem in com­mu­ni­cat­ing their take on the task in hand with per­son­al­ity and clar­ity, and there’s noth­ing here that any bud­ding Pho­to­shop wizard won’t be able to trans­fer to their own work. In­deed, it’s only the rather hefty price tag that may hold them back from adding this sixth of­fer­ing to their li­brary.

Many of the master projects, like how to in­stil a cin­e­matic mood into a scenery paint­ing as seen left, are both highly use­ful and ex­tremely beau­ti­ful.
