Digital Art Masters: Volume 5 is another great compilation of top quality art and insightful tutorials. If you have earlier volumes, you pretty much expected that. I've a wonderful time going through this thick 288-page book.

This time, art is categorised into 5 sections: Sci-Fi, Scene, Fantasy, Character and Cartoon. As usual, you see work created from all sorts of medium (2D & 3D), across a variety of art genre gravitating towards concept art. There are 3D modeling on different subjects, digital and background painting and many more.

The featured illustrations and galleries are beautiful and detailed. I can't begin to imagine the amount of time spent to create some of these inspiring illustrations, especially so when some of them are just personal projects.

There's plenty to learn from as there are to see. The artists share their techniques as they go through their process of creating the featured illustrations. The book is filled with all sorts of tips, ranging from matte painting, scene composition to even portrait drawing.

You can also visit the publisher's website for some free video tutorials.

Volume 5 is a great addition. Highly recommended to 3D modelers, digital painting artists and art lovers.

Here's volume three of Digital Art Masters, compiled by 3D Total. There are 60 artists included, each showing how their image was created. This is 10 additional artists more than Digital Art Masters volume 2.

The book doesn't focus on any specific software, but the frequently used software are 3D Max, Maya and Photoshop. The art techniques used by the artists can be easily achieved using similar software.

Each artist talks about his working process, on techniques, challenges and inspiration behind each piece. Topics range from mundane things like choosing canvas size to technical talk like setting up shaders and bump maps. This is a work flow process book. There are plenty of tips given the variety of 60 quality artists.

The illustrations are mainly on scenes, characters, fantasy, sci-fi and a little bit on cartoon style. This time round, more 2D work are featured, compared to volume 2 which focuses more on 3D work.

This book is highly recommended to 3D and digital painting artists.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been able to hold each volume (since Vol.2) in my hands and can honestly say 3D Total makes a better volume every year.
Each one holds a unique approach to showcase masterpieces from artists all over the world which to say the least is a must have for every digital artist or graphic lover, not only by the instruction you get from the creators of such pieces (let me clarify these are not detailed how-to instructions) but by the process they follow or the inspiration they crave from many different aspects from work or life.

What I particularly liked about this Volume is the section division by Characters, Sci Fi, etc. These is a better arrangement overall and I think it will be a standard for future Volumes. Also as a suggestion, I would love to have a Q&A section to be able to share what many enthusiasts, amateurs and professionals alike might wonder, ask or share with each other.

Overall a great buy!

I had the fortunate chance at getting an advanced copy of this book & what a book it is, 3D Total has created a standard of excellence with these books, setting a bench march for established artists to create their very best work & have it showcased within these delightful glossy pages.

This book in it's seventh series now has allowed 3D Total to publish some of the best artists work from across the world, but also they've managed to be consistent throughout the series to create a book with some of the very best artworks you're ever likely to see.

Within these pages, the Digital Art Masters Vol 7 delivers the best 2D & 3D artists from around the world, as in previous books in this series there's plenty of differing subject matter to both amaze & inform. With insights from the worlds top leading artists, there's tips, tricks & tutorials into creating your own artworks with similar themes it's truly inspiring stuff which is sure to get your own artistic juices flowing.

If you are a beginner into the world of digital art or even a seasoned professional this book more than delivers, the majority of the artists in this book are from well known film/video-game companies whereas others are just incredibly talented hobbyists.

Whether you have the previous books in this series or not it's the kind of publication that can add glamour to anyone's living room table, this book is designed to be enjoyed as well as being informative for budding artists both new & old, the full colour pages are printed on beautiful glossy paper and feel good to flick through, this is without doubt an excellent publication & a must have for collectors of the series or indeed lover's of art, purchase your copy as soon as you can you won't be disappointed
