In addition to being a first-rate course on digital matte painting, this book is a great general introduction to painting with Photoshop. For the professional, it seems that every page contains a new technique that is as applicable to ordinary illustration as it is to matte art. I was particularly impressed by the chapter on perspective---a subject all too often overlooked by both traditional and digital artists.
The book also contains a DVD with video demonstrations of many of the techniques discussed in the book. Just as with the text, these are remarkable for their clarity and exposition.
In short, Mattingly's book is more than a bargain at its price!
So, I finally decided to learn how to create those truly photo-realistic back plates. But more over, I also just like when people make those awesome almost photo-real, but slightly painterly, Matte Paintings of awesome fictional vistas.
This book covers everything from the fundamentals of composition to minute details of Photoshop technique. I saw a serious improvement in my work almost immediately upon reading the examples. If you are an experienced artist, some aspects will be a refresher course on things you might know already, but I am certain that everyone, regardless of skill level, will learn something new from this book. Simply put, this book will make your work better....in most cases...a LOT better.
I saw the other review regarding the lack of DVD material with the Kindle version. Per the Author's response to said comment, I went to [...] and clicked 'Contact' to request the materials. I received an email response the same day. requesting copy of my Amazon receipt. Shortly thereafter, Dave promptly sent me the links to download all of the DVD materials. Moreover, he offers on his website to critique any of the work that you've done from his book.
A book where the author actually offers to help you improve your work, Personally! How can you beat that!!
Thanks, Dave! Great Book!!
