Digital Painting Techniques vol.3 – The Review

1x1.trans Digital Painting Techniques vol.3   The ReviewToday, I will tell you something more about the third volume of the Digital Painting Series by 3DTotal. First, I must say that I don’t own this book, I received it from 3DTotal and then gifted. So I had the possibility of checking and reading it for about two weeks before shipping it (sadly).

After reading it I must say… it’s amazing, and I WANT IT. This book is good as the previous volumes, if not better, so I’ve decided to add it to the top of my Wishlist and I will get it as soon as I can.

Like the other Volumes of this series, Digital Painting Techniques 3 is made of many different digital painting tutorials, organized in chapters, wrote by different authors; those authors are all professional illustrators and digital painters.

Digital Painting Techniques vol.2 – The Review

1x1.trans Digital Painting Techniques vol.2   The ReviewIt’s time for another article, and this will be another review. I’m terrible sorry for my long absence, I’ve got ill the past weeks, so I’ve got lot of this to do for university and small time to work at the articles.

Today I will review for you the second book from the series Digital Painting Techniques by 3DTotal. I’ve bought it months ago on Amazon, just after getting and reading the first volume… since I found it is useful and really good, I got the second one, and I’m happy with my purchase. I found this series really interesting and useful; at first I thought this volume was similar to the previous one and not so useful; but I had to change my mind when I read it: it is an expansion of Volume 1, it deepen different aspects and it really useful… it is complementary to vol.1, a step forward the first tutorials.

At the moment this series is made of three volumes, but I’ve just discovered 3DTotal is working at a 4th volume… so I tought it’s time to show you all of them to make order and let you know what this book is dealing of.
