An expanded version of a character design walkthrough I did for 2D Artist magazine is included in the upcoming book: Beginners Guide to Digital Painting in Photoshop: CHARACTERS.
Other contributors include Charlie Bowater, Benita Winckler and Bram "Boco" Sels to name a few. From the samples I've seen so far it looks like a great book, and would be the perfect resource for the inspiring digital artist.
Beginners Guide to Digital Painting in Photoshop: CHARACTERS is published by 3D Total Publishing and will hit the shelves later next month, and it is available for pre-order at Amazon and at the 3D Total Shop.
