Digital Painting Tricks & Techniques: 100 Ways to Improve Your CG Art by Gary Tonge



This book provides all the advice artists need to transform their digital painting-from brush, lighting and color basics to special effects, working with layers, and speed and matte painting

Gary Tonge is one of the UK's foremost concept designers with more than 20 years experience as a digital artist. He currently works as Art Director for electronic games, Swordfish Studios. Recent products he has project managed include 50 Cent: Blood in the Sand and Operation Flashpoint: volumes 2 and 3. He also has a successful freelance business, VisionAfar, whose client base is as diverse as his art and includes the BBC, Vivendi, Capcom, Eidos, Sims Snowboards and National Geographic. However, I do not recommend this book for a beginner. As stated in the title this book is meant to improve your all ready existing cg art/skill. If you are looking for a digital painting book to learn the basics of drawing, shading, color, or even perspective this book will not be much help.

I saw the reviews this book received, but I thought that those people were just inexperienced as far as digital art creation was concerned. LISTEN TO THE REVIEWERS!!! I do digital painting at an intermediate level but I wanted to improve on my skills even more. I really thought this book would highlight things I already know and give clear step by step direction when creating at least one image that was laid out in the book, instead it jumped from topic to topic like a rugged glossary of terms and showed you the end result. It was as if it was saying "make these complex gridlines and paint all of this other stuff like a pro inside of these lines". I feel like I was just robbed of my money because I found absolutely nothing of use in it and I know I won't flip through this again. I'm so mad that I even wrote a freaking review to drive the nail into this coffin so nobody will even consider this as more than just a book of pretty pictures and general terms. If you expect this book to guide you through the process of adding more detail don't buy this book. If you think it will teach you something don't buy it. Put your money towards a different book and look up some tutorials cuz this won't help.

If I could choose 0 stars I would.

Love it, something to help learn digital painting, and it's a good resource!

Despite the low rating of this book I bought it anyways because I enjoy Gary Tonge's artistry and techniques. Being a digital artist myself I found Tonge's techniques/tricks to be useful. However, I do not recommend this book for a beginner. As stated in the title this book is meant to improve your all ready existing cg art/skill. If you are looking for a digital painting book to learn the basics of drawing, shading, color, or even perspective this book will not be much help. Instead, I would recommend on buying a book dedicated to the area you are desiring to improve on. However, this book is a good resource to have in your collection for when you are at a more advanced level.

Unlike 90% of the people that review this book, I feel like this book was a steal at the price. It provides a very useful overview of many of the things that go into creating very successful digital paintings. I think the reason that it receives so much negative feedback is that it doesn't teach you the exact techniques he uses to paint (those are something you can't learn from a book, anyway), but it does teach you exactly what to think about while painting, and outlines a smooth workflow that allows you to quickly practice and work up to paintings like his. It touches on many important principles that can make or break a painting. This is not a book for people who have never touched photoshop or a drawing tablet before, but it gives intermediate artists invaluable insights into taking their paintings to the next level. It's not perfect, but I highly recommend it!

has very little content and topics are explained in a very poor way. Image quality is very good and some tips can be useful

I have seen the work done by this artist on the Deviant Art web site for many years. Thought it would be good to have his book on techniques.
Yes, there are probably 100 tricks and techniques in this book. The problem is, none of them are given any sort of explanation about how you do them. It's sort of just a show-and-not-tell book. "This is something you could do" does not actually provide any sort of helpful instruction on *how* to do something. Avoid this book if you're looking for how to do something, buy it if you want some inspiration and ideas, and are already an expert in whatever digital image software you are using.
