Our latest book
d'artiste: Character Modeling 2 has just come off the press. It is available for pre-order, and is already receiving rave reviews.
... these are awesome! Not only is the featured artwork stunning, not only are the tutorials revealing, but the books themselves are works of art. Really outstanding production standards, you should all be proud of yourselves ....

We are proud to present a master class of character modeling techniques from three of the best: Kevin Lanning; Zack Petroc; and Timur "Taron" Baysal. Each master artist shows the approaches and techniques they use to create amazing characters and creatures for films and games.
Character Modeling 2 features the incredible work of Kevin Lanning and the team at Epic Games, creators of the triple-platinum Xbox 360 game Gears of War. Kevin details the high-polygon and low-polygon workflows that allow Epic Games to create its menacing next-gen game characters. Timur “Taron” Baysal follows with his hard-won techniques on building creatures with personality, and Zack Petroc brings it all home with his sculpting approach to creature modeling for which he is world-renowned.
