Format: Paperback
This book offers little in the way of actual things to do for your own digital painting or artwork, it is just a review of different digitial artists and some of their work. It is similar to the books such as "Works of 100 colored pencil artists", which is a showcase of colored pencil artists with a short bio and examles of their works, but very little in the way of actual techniques for your own work. This is similar to that, and, while there are some explanations given on some of the techniques used along with a short bio on each artist, it is mainly just a showcase of digital artists and their work. If you like a book for a coffee table and just enjoy looking at artwork, this is the book. However, if you want a more extensive book on actual work for digital work, you need to buy the technical books on the interrelationship between art and computer expertise.

In some ways, the title of the book is wrong, since some people may get the idea that this will be an instruction book on digital work in the arts.

The book is very well done, with good layout and the copies of the digital work is clear and colorwork is appropriate.

40 of 44 people found the following review helpful By Dennis A. Amith (kndy) TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 25, 2002
Format: Paperback
I remember when I first saw this book at the bookstore and turning the pages, read a little about how artists have gone digital and showing the kind of art they have created digitally and also how they did it. I was really amazed by it.
But I guess if anything, I was more or less inspired by buying the book because of Peter Max's foreword on digital art.
I really enjoyed learning about the digital artists and why they went digital, that was awesome. The bonus is a certain artwork shown and then how they created and what type of hardware/software they used and I'm just very passionate about this book because no other book at this time on digital art comes close to this one.
Price may be a little steep for some but for those who dreamed or have a passion for digital art, think of it as a worthy of investment because this book is indeed a rare gem.
Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
This book has a unique way (as far as design books go) of illustrating concepts. Instead of the usual and typically boring style of writing out information and then giving the reader a few tutorials and examples to illustrate, this book works only with examples. And the examples aren't just any examples, there is an entire collection of beautiful examples written and explained by top designers and artist of our time. I've always been one to learn best by a visual example and if you feel that way too, then this book will kick off your study of digital design in a fresh unique way that is unparalleled in today's publishing world.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By ALM on November 15, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book shows you the tools different graphic artists used to complete specific works they have done. It shows you key elements they used, but it does not say how they created their entire piece. It is kind of basic stuff, but it is a good reference book to learn or review some techniques. The programs most often discussed are photoshop and painter. This is a good book for graphic design students.
