    Matt Dixon's New Book!

    Man, I was just browsing though the art section waiting on my sister when, Bam! Misplaced on the shelf lay this wonderful art book dealing with Fantasy character ideation and concepting. I love how he explains techniques on rendering different textures and info on speculars. Highly recommended=D
    Thanks Dixon!

    I saw this in a local bookshop a few weeks ago, it was a reasonable price (though I forget exactly how much). Will be going back to buy it after next pay day :3

    For those too lazy to look: here's the book on Amazon.

    It's pretty reasonably priced too. Might just have to pick it up the next time I order some books.

    I'll give this a look. Fantasy really isn't my thing. Good price, too.

    I suddenly feel very self conscious.

    For those interested, I posted some info and a little art from the book in FF a few weeks back -

    I hope anyone who picks it up finds it useful. No refunds!

    Cheers!
