The Community
The d'artiste series is part of Ballistic Media's strategy to help build the digital arts community by raising the profile of leading artists. In addition to their Master Class material, each artist will choose a range of work submitted by the community that inspires or illustrates a technique that is of interest to them. This makes the d'artiste series unique in that it combines the technical insights of top artists with a glimpse of leading work from the digital illustration community.

These ‘Invited Artist Gallery’ sections are another example of the smart thinking that goes on at Ballistic. Not only do readers get the opportunity to see what is inspirational and exciting for the featured artists, but we also get commentary on many of these pieces. There is nothing quite like reading an accomplished creator examining the work of others.

The d'artiste series

The d'artiste imprint (pronounced dah-tee-st) means both "of the artist" and "digital artist". Each d'artiste title will feature techniques and approaches of a small group of Master Artists. However, the focus of d'artiste books will not be limited to just techniques and technical tricks. In addition, we also showcase galleries of their own work and other artists' paintings that inspire them. In combination with artist interviews this mix of content gives the reader a comprehensive and personal insight into the Master Artists, their approaches, their techniques, their influences and their works.
