One of the best ways to develop a personal artistic style and to grow as an artist is to study other artists' work. This book, by Daryl Wise and Jesse DeRooy, will show you how the experts use the 3D graphic software PoserR from e frontier, Inc. Each of the sixteen Poser artists featured in the book discuss their personal styles and give you a peak into the techniques that they use in Poser to develop their art. At the end of each chapter, each artist shares a gallery of their artwork and answers questions about their creative process.

One of the things I like about this book is that some of the featured artists use Poser in interesting ways. For example, Kevin Airgid uses Poser when creating Flash games and Brian Jon Haberlin has an interesting technique for including traditional gouache and oil in his Poser graphics. He also gives a nice post production tip for creating an old Hollywood style render.

Have you ever wondered who makes all that Poser content? You are introduced to a few of these content creators and they share some of the techniques they use. Phil Cooke discusses Poser's UV mapping and creating an hierarchy file for posing his characters. As Shanim and Siliphiel discuss posing characters and using the Poser Material Room.

Photo-realism is a very popular style and several artists discuss the important aspects of achieving photo-realistic Poser scenes. Catharina Harders uses image based lighting (IBL) to achieve realism and Fabrice Delage discusses creating realistic skin textures from photos.

Many of these artists use Poser along with other graphic software. For example, Tony Luke uses AdobeR After EffectsR to create his motion graphics and Scott Thigpen turns Poser scenes into a stylized illustration in Adobe IllustratorR.

The book's DVD contains a gallery of the artist's work, movies, and tutorials. It also has a demo version of Poser 6 and Poser content. Daryl Wise is an independent public relations and marketing contractor and is the author of Secrets of Award-Winning Digital Artists. Jesse DeRooy is a radio editor and independent filmmaker.
