Philip Straub 'Dreaming Tree' : Technique, Composition and Colour

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 will expand the d'artiste series to encompass all aspects of digital content creation... matte painting, concept design, compositing, 3D modeling, animation, texturing, lighting, etc.
