Praise for Matte Painting & the d'artiste series:

"Ballistic Publishing has quickly worked its way to the top of the list of instructive books about digital art with the d'artiste series and Matte Painting does not disappoint the readers either."
Art Scene International

"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".
