    (More pictures at parkablogs.com) 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.

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. Here's the list of contents (with links to the artists website): - Mind's Eye to Digital Canvas - Jehan Choo - Modern Classical Painting - Marta Dahlig - Paint Realistic Ears - Katerina Sokolova - Paint Realistic Lips - Katerina Sokolova - Digital Hairstyling - John Kearney - Paint Realistic Hands - Marta Dahlig - Create a Heroic Valkryie - Lorland Chan - Drawing and Painting Dragons - James Strehle - Create 3D Illustrations - Loic Zimmerman - Painting a Mythical Beast - Joel Carlo - An Army Summoned - Mike Corriero - Create a LOTR-Inspired Orc - Jeff Murchie - Quick Character Design Concept - Francis Tsai - Painting Creepy Portraits - Mike Mitchell - Speed Painting a Zombie - Patrick Reilly - Painting a Nightmare - Cyril Van Der Haegen - Create a Great Background - Melanie Delon - 25 Custom Brush Tips - Patrick Reilly - Dramatic Concept Art - David Levy - Create a Dark Urban Nightmare - Lee Carter - Manga Character Illustration - Michael Chomicki - Create Fantasy Manga - Cris De Lara - Fiery Dragon Princess - Svetlin Velinov This review was first published on parkablogs.com.

    GENRE: Non-fiction Art BASIC SYNOPSIS The book features short tutorial style lessons from a variety of fantasy and sci fi artists, with some Q & A here and there. MY THOUGHTS Not every artist in the book is amazing, and not every artist is good at teaching/explaining, but most were. There are enough small tips in this book that it took me a while to get through because I was stopping and trying things the whole time. Money well spent.

    A very good resource for those who are starting out in digital painting it covers various techniques and styles. It covers hyper realistic painting to comic art. What I don't like (and its something thats always annoyed me about ImagineFX)is that its mostly photoshop which may sound strange but these days i know very few that just use photoshop. And its not as if this book is old, they could have included Paint Tool Sai, Coral Painter and GIMP. The instructions are step by step process of the ma A very good resource for those who are starting out in digital painting it covers various techniques and styles.

The instructions are step by step process of the making of images, the text is easy to follow and understand and the images are clear and simply beautiful. I would happily recommend this to anyone starting out in digital art and a photoshop user.

    On the whole a good book. Picking some of the best articles from the ImagineFX magazine. As always you have to pick what works and what doesn't. Some solid tips and guides to creating images that I shall be referencing in the future. I particularly liked the later sections which show whole image creation. My favorite book on this subject is 'Digital Fantasy Painting Workshop' by Martin McKenna, which this comes a solid second to me. On the whole a good book.

    This book is very comprehensive and very impressive from page 1. It contains incredible illustrations and a great range of content and genres. I highly recommend it as a reference book to amateur digital artists out there interested in sci-fi and fantasy. One ever so slight criticism is that the step-by-step processes included are sometimes slightly limited, easy to follow the development but possibly more suitable for slightly more advanced users of software like photoshop or painter.

    I'm new to the digital art world, but this is an inspiring guide with some great tips. I still need to try and find more information and guidance so will probably look on Youtube, as this book doesn't give simple step by step instructions. It also mixes with Photoshop, where as I'm using Painter 12, so the advice is sometimes different. However, overall I like this book and will definately be referring back to it on many occasions.
