More about this book

This book features a bookplate signed by Djamila Knopf and a free mini print.

Illustrator Djamila Knopf leads us through her world, where anime-influenced characters, exquisite settings, and the process of creating fantasies enchant her fans worldwide.

Having settled on her own authentic, creative style, featuring line art and a palette of delicate yet impactful colors, Djamila has decided to write a book that charts her journey. Japanese art was a key influence from an early age, and the book illustrates how Djamila has fused her favorite aspects of anime with her own, the result being a unique style that has captured the attention of both art fans and the industry. Her approach to storytelling and ideation are covered in depth; although artists have different approaches, Djamila shares her own experiences and insights to help readers fine-tune their own early stages of creation. As a fantasy artist, symbolism and fantastical scenes have always been part of Djamila’s world, and here she shares how she works with these, as well as finding very personal connections to even the most general of concepts.

The final leg of the journey is visiting Djamila’s own studio, where she discusses being an independent artist, her daily routine and workspace, and the practical aspect of time management and motivation.

About the artist

Djamila lives and works in Leipzig, Germany. Working as an illustrator for games and books until 2017, she one day had an epiphany and decided to dedicated herself to being an independent artist, concentrating on her own style of work. Primarily creating work digitally, Djamila was obsessed with fantasy and 90s anime, and her work today is an accumulation of these early influences.

Customer Reviews

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.

Artful snap shots!

Djamila has created beautiful stories in her artwork, full of colour and plays of light in a Japanese anime watercolour style. Inspirational art!

Beautiful illustrations

This is a gorgeous art book, well laid out with distinct parts. The one criticism I have is that the layout could be a little better, but I enjoyed the stories that came along with each illustration. I do wish there were more space dedicated to her process as I find I learn a lot from a step by step, but overall a wonderful purchase!

Amazing and Inspiring

Beautiful Artbook with insightful information on the painting process and art journey of Djamila Knopf! The book arrived in perfect condition. Thank you 3d Total!
