About d'artiste: Concept Art
In this title, leading concept artists Viktor Antonov, George Hull, Andrew Jones and Nicolas “Sparth” Bouvier take readers through the concept art techniques they have used to create environments, characters and machinery for film, television and video games!

Each master artist presents their unique approach through a series of step-by-step tutorials from line sketch through to concept completion. d'artiste: Concept Art dedicates a section to each master artist, including a personal gallery, biography, up to 26 pages of tutorial content each and an invited artist gallery featuring 92 artworks from talented concept artists worldwide.

Comments from people who've received their pre-ordered books:
D'artiste Concept Art delivered - WOW!

"I just received my copy of Ballistics Concept Art focused book and I have to say... wow, what an awesome book!

I've only looked through it briefly but I can already tell that it's my favourite of the ballistic books out there that I've seen. So far I've seen Expose1-3 and the D'artiste Digital Painting book.

Veery cool and inspiring work in this book. A lot of work I haven't seen before and many of them by artists that are new to me.

And although most of this work is done in 2D i would strongly recommend this book to 3D people too(of course!). Concept Art is getting crazy, I'm definitely happy with my field of work : )" - Dan Blomberg, San Francisco, USA

"I just received mine, too (thanks to Rasseltassel's reminder I went outside to check for it). What a gorgeous book. By far one of the most inspirational books I've ever looked through. The tutorials are in depth and informative." - Robin Chyo, Concept artist, Saratoga, USA

"I recieved my d'artise concept art book and it has completely blown me away, this is exaclty what i have been waiting for!! This book has so much in it i had to pause and take a breather. Awesome awesome awesome!! fantastic book!!" - Aaron Smith, San Francisco, USA

I can't say enough how awesome this book is, the work, the explainations, etc, One of the best concepts book I've seen.
It is not length of life, but depth of life.

This will probably be my first too. I want it like a dog wants food!

Will have to wait though to get some funds... As i said in another thread. It could easily become twice as expensive if im unlukcy but i guess its worth it :P (i hope=

Mine arrived half an hour ago and I've been lost in its pages - absolutely brilliant, brilliant job folks. The depth and breadth of the work is awesome - the tutorials are an inspiration and the Invite Galleries are just incredible. Kudos to everyone involved!

Seems CoooOOll....I want it -- I want it!!

This is my favorite Ballistic book yet, and I'm not even in this one! You guys did a fantastic job assembling these artists for this edition. I like how different each artists' approach is to their work and how they came to be where they are. While some of the work falls into the "illustration" category more than the "concept" one, it's still fantastic. I particularly love the tutorial sections.

My only constructive criticism would be to add the tools used for each pic, like the galleries do here on CGT. "Maya & Photoshop" or whatever.

Thanks to Ballastic for putting this one out.

Thumbs up A definite must have

I recieved mine a few days ago and lets just say that i was completely blown away by the work displayed in the book this should be a mandatory buy for anyone serious about visual development/ preproduction.
