Awesome book. All contributing artists are good. Tons of illustrations to help you understand different concepts. Could have used a little more on anatomy. Also to note, though technical instructions are PS specific (which key to press etc.), general ideas and workflows are not. I use a free program (Krita) and am still able to use the book.
