The Artists
Leading character modelers Zack Petroc, Kevin Lanning, and Timur "Taron" Baysal each take you behind the scenes of their character development showing you the techniques that will take your character modeling skills to the next level. Step-by-step techniques show you how to improve your face modeling, skin shading, facial hair and body modeling among many other tutorials.

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.
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.

Ballistic Publishing plans to expand the d'artiste series to encompass all aspects of digital content creation... character design, compositing, 3D modeling, animation, texturing, lighting, photo illustration, etc.
