Each of the fully illustrated tutorials provides priceless tips on improving any artist's digital painting skills.

Praise for the d'artiste series
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.
