Bold Visions: The Digital Painting Bible
(Picture source:

Bold Visions is more of a starter guide to digital painting than a bible.

It goes through the core art techniques such as colour, lighting, composition, research, materials and stuff like that. The good thing is all these concepts are explained clearly with great illustrations as examples.

The techniques and tips are presented in a pointer style as well as in the form of several step-by-step workflow screenshots. These step-by-step processes take a look at how Gary
What i have to say is the artwork is beautiful in this book the printing is quite simply stunning. The text and images are quite easy to follow and understand.

What i have to say is that the artist uses a dated software maybe photoshop CS2 i cannot say but the information is still relevant to more modern versions as it teaches you how to paint rather then what the software does.

Easy to follow and understand discussions on Tonge's approach to digital painting. Inspiring enough and a good showcase of his work. Tonge's strengths are exemplified by his fantastic landscapes and atmospherics but his disinterest in some areas are also evident, especially when it comes to figures/portraits. Overall a good read, useful and inspiring though.

This book is really good with the basics and builds on ideas. It was very helpful to me. There are a lot of step by step examples, but when he uses an example like this he is illustrating a point, a style of painting, or a subject. I was able to take some helpful tips and some new methods that I'm trying out now.
