EXOTIQUE 5 New walkthrough video
EXOTIQUE 5 - New walkthrough video So far every EXOTIQUE 5 customer has received the fantastic video walkthrough by Steve Argyle of his fantasy character Naya Battlemage from Wizards of the Coast's 'Magic the Gathering' role-playing game.
We thought Steve could do better, so we locked him in his underground lair with strict orders to produce half-an-hour of relentless digital awesome. It worked, and he clearly outdid himself with a 30-minute video tutorial that encompasses his best techniques for creating surface details.
Every EXOTIQUE 5 Special Edition customer and the first 300 customers to buy the EXOTIQUE 5 Softcover edition will receive the new video by entering their Order ID and email address on the EXOTIQUE 5 product page.
