Format: Paperback
Length: 1:00 Mins
The EXOTIQUE series continue to feature beautiful CG character art. In volume 6, 229 artists have contributed 344 pieces of artwork. 95 artists are new. The printing is brilliant and the colours are really vibrant, almost too vibrant.

There are a couple of 3D modeled characters in the sea of painted ones, and the majority are on human characters. I actually like the non-human characters because since they aren't human, there's always an element of surprise with what you see. The non-human characters are quite good, just too bad there aren't more. Too bad there aren't any series featuring only non-human characters at the moment.

Since every piece is digitally created, the style of art is pretty similar - which may be the book's selling point here. But when your style of art is similar and everyone is good technically, it's hard to stand out. Yes, the costumes and pretty faces are awesome, but what I find lacking is the dynamic poses, especially of characters in action. Most of the characters are created with a particular role in mind, so it will really add to the character and personality if that role is acted out more clearly.

Other than the minor quibble, EXOTIQUE 6 is a book I can still recommend to CG artists. The selling point is digital character art and you know that already.

This is a great series of books for anyone interested in fine art especially anyone aspiring to
become an artist.

There are numerous different styles and techniques used by the different artist that give great inspiration.

More great artwork from around the world using various styles but all to world class quality.

Some people collect stamps, coins, baseball cards or comic books. I don't do that. Instead, I collect all the best art books. If you collect art books like I do I would say definitely buy this one. This is one of the best I've seen. The artwork is just amazing!!! If I could give it more than 5 stars, I definitely would.

This book doesn't teach you how to become a better artist. It just shows you a collection of artwork from some of the best artists. I don't mind if an art book doesn't teach me any new techniques as long as the artwork in the book somehow inspires me to become a better artist. This book makes me want to practice harder so that someday I could be as good as these artists.

I wish I could recommend this to everyone but because of the nudity I would only recommend this to adults. This is not really an art book for children. I feel bad I forgot to mention that in my review for Exotique 5.

There's a lot of good quality images in it. I recommend to artists.
Posting and packaging was very good. The book came across the continents to Turkey and there wasn't any crack on the cover. Thanks Amazon.com....
