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.Read more ›
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.
