Cool idea, I've been getting interested in 2D art recently, and it's always great to see people's approaches and techniques.

Good to see john and linda in there but what about mullins ?? :hmm:

12 December 2003, 01:53 AM
Mullins is probably too busy working on upcoming feature films to work on a book.

But I must say that D'Artiste is most probably going to be the best digital illustration technique book. The concept is great - get four top digital artists together to collaborate on a book! Can't wait to see this on my shelf!

False advertisement.

12 December 2003, 06:35 AM
i really dont know how a feel about this book .... there was a time when artist would have these tutorials on thier website on in forums now they are just trying to sell them in books ect....i have seen so many of these books pop up with very few real techiques just a few tips on small section of the actual process i do beleive that this book is better than what i described but yet i think there is better knowledge to be learned in a basic art lesson than seeing how 'X' artist does his style........ now like i said i am saying this without seeing the book and it is just my opinion..... i just think the art community as a whole needs to stop feeding off itself by charging for info

typo on the page linked to in this thread. Bottom right:

"Above is an example of just a few of the stages that Linda Berkvist takes us throught , in order to create a beatuifully painted portrait, that ..."

it should be "through"

Are entries being accepted yet? I was on the site and in the drop down box on the submit form Expose 2 was the only choice.

12 December 2003, 02:59 PM
I am very much syked for this book...

Robert is one of the very reason i got into Digital art...Linda made me love it she is a sweetheart...

12 December 2003, 03:07 PM
I'll buy it. :thumbsup:

12 December 2003, 05:53 PM
Linda's name is spelled wrong a few times on this page too:

OK. d'artiste - Digital Painting...

The Call for Entries is up and running.

Just follow the "Read Entry Submission Guidelines and Enter Artwork" link.

Entries will be selected by the Master Artists themselves.

The book will comprise roughly 50% gallery images from entrants and the Master Artists.

It's free to enter and artists whose images get in print will be sent a free copy of the book.

Can a image already uploaded for EXPOSE II be also considerated for dartiste? If so, must I upload it again in a new entry? Or can I send a e-mail pointing the work for consideration, with the proper info on the already submited image, kind of: Hey guys, can you consider this for the dartiste as well?

Im sure other artists will also be interested in the answer.


12 December 2003, 01:43 PM
You have to OK the entry agreement for each book separately. It's a legal type thingy...

...So for now you must enter images separatly for EXPOS'E 2 and d'artiste.

We are looking into how we can allow an artist to submit work for multiple books -- but it's quite tricky and we have a lot of other back end database stuff to impliment first.

Well, thanks anyway.:thumbsup:
