Hi everyone,

If you're into coloring your art using digital techniques, I wanted to let you know about a new book:

I got a chance to meet authors Brian and Kristy Miller at Book Expo a few days ago. They were signing copies of their book and they took some time to talk to me. They were super nice. We talked about our favorite Joss Whedon TV shows turned comics and they signed a copy of our IMPACT Free Comic Book Day Comic (I'm trying to collect signatures of all the artists featured in the comic).

Check out their book here (http://www.fwbookstore.com/product/1884/art-instruction)

Here's another cool digital art book:

Bold Visions: The Digital Painting Bible for Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists by Gary Tonge (http://www.fwbookstore.com/product/1991/art-instruction)

Create beautiful fantasy art--from futuristic spacescapes and revolutionary vehicles to medieval landscapes and beautiful maidens--step-by-step! An in-depth materials section introduces you to all the equipment you are likely to need, from computer hardware and software to more traditional art media. And a detailed basic techniques section makes this subject easy to tackle no matter what your skill level.
