3D Total Publishing truly has an impressive book collection. I didn't know one could get love bombed by books but it really happened to me, cross my heart and hope to die!

Their collections have outstanding quality, not only in reference to content, layout and design but also in the physical quality of the books themselves.

I find their content to be spot on and relevant to art today, as a multi layered medium that ties together hands on craftsmanship with the complexity of high level digital artistry. The books are rich in the “know how” and give a pallet of styles from a collection of professional artists.

I was surprised by the level of detail around their products, many books included a complimentary high quality print of the artist work, and some books were autographed by the artist themselves. What a treat!

Their customer service is impeccable and personal. I was really aware that there is a human on the other side, funny how the absence of AI can make a human feel valued.

Good overview

This book gives you a good overview of composition and narrative. For me, the chapter with Devin Elle Kurtz's drawings was especially interesting, as I do like her storytelling abilities, and she is a great teacher. Also looking at all the amazing artworks it is great. I would say it is a decent Overview of the topic. I am glad that I do have it in my bookshelf.


I think 3DTotal book should be used in art colleges as textbooks. They are amazing books that are so well put together I recommend them to anyone interested in art creation.


Love this book like the many others. Can't wait to get more!
