Digital art - the new media is often considered the bustard son of serious art. This book contains some of the most amazing art created in this genre, and establishes digital art as one of the most expressive and thought provoking forms of art. The artists where carefully chosen from the Renderosity.com site, and represent a wide range of styles and forms. Every artist has a unique style that stands apart from other artists of this genre. This book is a must have for people interested in digital art, or in any other artform.

Almost, but not quite... April 19 2006
By Delano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Behind the provocative title is the affirmative premise that the computer is the medium of the modern age and that digital art deserves recognition alongside traditional art. While I certainly couldn't agree more, this book unfortunately does not carry enough weight to set an example.

The quality of the art within varies greatly, from amazing renders to painting-like portraits to amateur landscapes with figures that look like they were cut and pasted in. My personal favourite is the work of David Ho. The dark and gloomy scenes he portrays in pieces such as "Nature Versus Nurture" and "Man Created God" are among the most striking, well-made and memorable works in the entire book.

Overall not bad, but not enough to get the point across. There are many other sites all over the internet which do a much better job at showcasing the phenomenon of digital art, and for free too.

Stunning images demonstrate the dramatic changes in art due to digital technology Dec 19 2006
By Charles Ashbacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What is now being done in the creation of digital art is nothing short of amazing. This book contains some of the best examples of what has been created to date. It contains works by the digital artists:

*) MarcelBarthel

*) Adam Benton

*) Bernard Dumaine

*) Matt Hansel

*) David Ho

*) Michael Komarck

*) Vod Land

*) James Lee

*) Elizabeth Leggett

*) Duncan Long

*) Ron Miller

*) Socar Myles

*) Tina Oloyede

*) John Picacio

*) Kees Robol

*) Chuck Siebuhr

*) Andy Simmons

*) Audre Vysniauskas

*) Thomas Weiss

*) Christina Yoder

*) Marcin Zemczak

The images are absolutely stunning; I was particularly impressed with some of those with a fantasy/science fiction theme. There have been a few dramatic changes in art since the first cave paintings, but in my mind the greatest of all has been the advent of digital technology. By allowing the artist to truly let their imagination run wild and make an image of what is in their mind, digital technology allows them to create works that simply were not possible only a few years ago.
