I've explored a number of similar titles and most of them suffer from lack of detailed instructions, introducing you to concepts but not specific methods of realizing them digitally. If you haven't yet looked at any of the titles that promise to familiarize you with digital painting techniques this would be a good investment in comparison to other similar alternatives and it will be quite apt as you are mastering the digital medium, but so far, for me, the best title that offers good instructions on digital painting remains Creative Photoshop by Derek Lea. Second best being The Photoshop and Painter Artist Tablet Book by Threinen-Pendarvis.

Here's a great tutorial style book for those interested in digital painting. Fantasy Workshop is a compilation of tutorials that have been published in monthly ImagineFX issues. If you are already a regular subscriber, you'll see very similar tutorials in Fantasy Workshop.

The tutorials are split into three categories, namely Characters, Scenes & Stories and Manga. At the end is a short FXpose section, which like the magazine, features illustrations from individual artists.

The tutorials are presented in a step-by-step manner with plenty of screenshots and well explained captions. Each artist will talk about their workflow, tips, techniques and shortcuts to creating digital art. More specifically for example, they will talk about how they create realism through texture, and also why they created it that way.

Since the book is about mastering digital painting, you'll see tons of examples on how to recreate paint effects using software. By examples I mean they will show the digital tools used, menus, and settings. The software used are Painter and Photoshop but the art techniques are usually easily achievable in either software.

There are also a few pages where the artists answer fans' questions relating to creating art.

This is a recommended book for anyone into digital painting. There's enough variety featured for everyone to learn a new trick or two.

This is a book that includes some very good tutorials taken from various issues of ImagineFX magazine.

If your a long time subscriber and have all the issues you might as well stop here since you probably have all of these already. For those of you that are like myself and are new the the wonderfull world of ImagineFX then this is a good buy considering the price and the amount of tutorials included compared to a single issue cost of the magazine.

You get some great steps and ideas from this book with some excellent pictures from a lot of great artists. I did find however that I do have a few tutorials already that are included in this book and prefer the magazines version primarily since the books version felt somewhat condensed however the key elements are still there.

Anyone who wants to further there knowledge on working digital should buy this book and then also get an IFX subscription.
