Exotique 3
Ballistic Publishing is pleased to announce the pre-release of EXOTIQUE 3, which draws together the world’s most beautiful CG characters in genres ranging from science fiction, fantasy, and anime, to photo-realism and stylized realism. From heroes and heroines to mythic beasts and monsters, the creative talents of each of the digital artists and their characters are brought to life.

The editors have included 292 images from 197 artists in 45 countries (up from 168 artists and 38 countries in EXOTIQUE 2). Also featured are 119 artists whose work appears for the first time in a Ballistic publication.

EXOTIQUE 3 is available in a Soft Cover edition retailing for US$45 as well as a Special Edition priced at US$99 - these collectors’ editions are timeless and feature a black leather-bound cover with gold embossing. EXOTIQUE 3 Special Edition, and the first 200 Soft Covers sold, will include an exclusive set of four Limited Edition prints, celebrating the stunning character artwork continuing to emerge from the digital arts community.

What they said
The fifth book in our flagship EXPOSÉ series has been received with thunderous applause. See below.
“... what positively distinguishes them is almost implausible focus, details and perfection. Our conclusion? Highly recommended and a must in every book collection!”
Art Scene International  December 2007

".... the ballistic team have once again put together a collection of artists whose work can't fail to inspire you....having this extended section sets the reader up nicely for the rest of the book by setting the mood for some fabulous art.  The variety and quality of the work presented here is truly breathtaking, as is the software used to create them. The colour rendition is superb and the glossy paper makes the book feel like a luxurious treasure..."
Painter Magazine Issue 7 August 2007

"As with the previous titles in this series, EXPOSÉ 5 does a fantastic job of gathering the world's best digital artists. With ever-increasing numbers of entries making the judging process harder, it's looking like you may need to buy a bigger coffee table."

ImagineFX issue 21 August 2007
