    Inspiration and Study

    This is a great tool for inspiration in digital art mediums ranging from 2D painting to 3D models. I found the explanations the artists gave regarding their process from concept to completion insightful. It is not a technical manual, per se, but rather a study of ideas. It is possible to gather techniques used, but without the instruction on how it is achieved. You have to do the leg work yourself on gaining instruction or finding a tutorial. Overall, I think it is a great resource to have on hand if you are in need of some artist eye candy and brain food.
