Reviews - What do customers think about Bold Visions: A Digital Painting Bible?

Informative but could be fleshed out further...  Sep 26, 2008
"Bold Visions" shows some intermediate to more advanced methods on how to create eye-catching works of concept art. If you are pretty familiar with the workings of Photoshop, there may be very little here you may not know. But still the book does offer some insights and ideas. I wish there were more fleshed out step-by-step demonstrations instead of just highlights, even an accompanying CD would be great.
loved it...  Sep 24, 2008
im just gettin started into the concept art kind of stuff... i love all the imagery here and the helpful hints and tips for getting from rough sketch through to finished concept.

great book!
Awesome insight into the author's process.  Sep 23, 2008
This book is so beautiful that I chastised myself for getting finger prints on the pages, which I'm afraid is hard not to do. The images in this book alone are worth the price, but the author's walk through of each painting makes it priceless.

A quick note, this book isn't for beginners (not that it claims to be). It goes over some basics of how to paint in Photoshop. Unfortunately, there's an artistic jump from the basics that are covered, to the paintings that are presented later in the book.

Again, the book doesn't claim to be for beginners, but as a beginner myself, I appreciate the topics covered and, once I advance enough to be able to draw from my imagination, as opposed to only what I can see, I will refer to this book often. Until then, the images within will serve as great inspiration and a benchmark to aim for.
An Inspiration for Digital Artists  Sep 20, 2008
This book not only showcases beautiful and inspiring works of art, it provides advice and guidelines for artists hoping to develop their talents further. Be aware that the book does NOT provide step-by-step instructions, lists of tools, etc. on how each piece is done; that's to its credit. Rarely do artists do things in the exact same way. Gary Tonge simply presents his work and explains the concepts and processes that went into it. There are some examples of composition provided, although not with concrete rules, and an explanation of how light diffuses in some of his pieces, as well as sections on the importance of color, scale, perspective, and texures. This is not a rulebook or a stiff outline of steps. This is a guidebook. It offers suggestions and leaves the interpretation up to the reader. If you want a step-by-step tutorial, this is not for you. If you want inspiration and an understanding of what makes Tonge's art so dynamic, it's an invaluable text regardless of your choice of medium.
Good Book To Inspire You, But...  Sep 9, 2008
The author speaks in GENERAL TERMS when explaining his process for the 'start to finish' of particular projects. It is NOT a step by step guide if that's what you are looking for. You can still pick up some interesting ideas for starting a project of your own.
