Sorry, I'm a newbie in 3D world.
Are those book gives explenation about creating the picture, or just the art concept?

Is there any book that explain how to create a huge 3D design with a specific 3D program(like 3DS Max)? No a tutorial book(they often used a very simple model), but just the concept of creating a huge 3D design

I just peeked at mr Liatso's copy at work ,
tell you the truth at first I was afraid (hesitating) of buying a book like that , but the quality blew me away, altho its softcover it "feels" better than most softcover books out there.... the pictures I'd seen of the book do not do it justice, its better than it looks...:drool:

05-24-2005, 11:06 AM
Leo and everybody, do yourselves a favor and photograph the book dont post jpgs of the cover cause its far better...

05-24-2005, 11:35 AM
'got the book today. :bounce:

it's very good, but i'd like to give ballistic some feedback, where can i do that?

i don't really like that matte printing. the one from the expose books is better IMO.

also, about half of page 62 is covered with a white blot. like someone has spilled milk over it. it's not that big of a deal to me. just wanted to let you guys know.

great book, thanks guys :thumbsup:
