Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for novice digital artists If you're getting into digital art and you have a basic understanding of Photoshop this book is great. It's packed with information, I found the section on matte painting particularly interesting. The artwork inside is intermediate to advanced level but hardly could be considered 'master' quality. I won't give it full stars because I don't think it's a good value for the asking price. 75 dollars is far too much and I certainly would not pay that price for it. If you're looking to learn more about digital art you're probably better off going to gumroad, cubebrush or even youtube.
