Many artists are unsure how to bridge the gap between the many basic ‘how to draw’ books and the more advanced ones dealing with the esoteric details of composition, perspective and anatomy. Force: Animal Drawing is the comprehensive guide to developing artistic animals that are creative, dynamic and anatomical, bridging the gap between foundational art and advanced techniques. Artists and animators alike all find animal inspiration when animating characters- be they human or inhuman. For a unique ‘larger than life’ character, readers will learn to apply the unique facets of animal movement, locomotion, expressions, facial features, physical build and personality to their traditional and digital art. Readers will also adapt key industry tricks and techniques to personify animal animations with key characteristics of a human?s face. Explore the practical application of force theories and learn from today’s leading character designers with the included artist interviews and an extended video tutorial.

As it has become easier for more and more people to go online, Internet crime has also increased. Some users view the World Wide Web as an opportunity for crime against millions of unsuspecting victims. Crimes directly related to the Internet, such as stealing personal information or engaging in fraudulent schemes, have grown rapidly. Criminals also use the Internet as a way to commit other types of crime—as a clearinghouse for stolen goods, as a hunting ground for pedophiles, and even as a corner from which to sell illegal drugs. Some believe that more oversight is needed to protect Internet users, while others see the Internet as a place that should exist without restrictions. Explore these issues and others pertaining to online crime in The Internet and Crime.
The HDRI Handbook reveals the secrets behind High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI). This cutting-edge imaging technology is a method to digitally capture and edit all light in a scene. It represents a quantum leap in imaging technology, as revolutionary as the leap from Black & White to Color imaging. If you are serious about photography, you will find that HDRI is the final step that places digital ahead of analog. The old problem of over- and underexposure in analog photography, which was never fully solved, is elegantly bypassed here. A huge variety of subjects can now be photographed for the first time ever.
