Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Human modeling is one of the useful but more difficult digital graphic arts to master. For artists with some previous experience, Femme begins with an introduction to female digital character development and a description of the advantages of the major 2-D and 3-D software packages. Then, it presents examples and comments from various artists using various packages to demonstrate tools and techniques. Special project and gallery sections illustrate examples, while a reference section discusses hardware needs, output formats, and additional resources. Lavish full-color illustrations add value, but be aware that Femme includes several semi-explicit depictions of (generally improbably proportioned) women; for large libraries. Building also takes a nonsoftware-specific approach: it walks beginning to intermediate users through making a male digital model, then transforming it into both a fantasy character and female model, explaining how a basic model can be employed in various ways. More thorough but less visually appealing than Femme, it addresses details down to constructing eyelashes and simulating facial expressions. Building's CD includes reference images of the live model used, 3-D models, full-color illustrations from the book, and modeling and paint software programs. For larger libraries.

    Excellence to amateur

    Upside: If you¿re looking for the Rosetta stone of digital imaging for the female form, Femm Digitale is your pick. Excellent tutorials cover everything from clothing and character creation to hair and complete scenes. Step by step, you¿re walked through the process, elusive secrets are demystified. The gallery works contain images from now familiar digital artists. Beautiful pinups by Steven Stalhberg and Will Kramer, Alluring women by Rene Morel and great comic characters by Daniel Scott Gabriel Murray. Other talented artists fill the work. Downside: It still amazes me that books like this who show off wonderful artists above still manage to waste pages on amateurs. But all in all, I¿d give it a strong 4 stars. An excellent addition for artists and fans of the form.
