Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Great for newbies


I would recommmed this book for all beginners, although I would suggest reading Grey Perry's "Absolute Beginner's Guide to Programming" first. Dunderhead's like me need things explained in very simple terms and this book will do the job. I will say one thing Mr Wang's has a cynical sense of humor, but he does explain things well.

Answers every question you might ask


I wasn't expecting two people from UPS to have carry this book into my office--the book is huge.
I have been using MYSQL for a year and I am moving to MS SQL Server. The book's tips (over 600) have been invaluable.
I used the code the book provides to convert many of applications to support transactions. Got to eliminate tons of code.
Very well done! Recommend.

Must have!


A really good book. Same intro about Character Design as the Older Painter version, but new totally different tutorials. If you are looking for a totally 'hands held' walkthrough this isnt the book for you. He gives you a step by step image walkthrough and says verbally what he does. No real brush sizes, opacities, or color choices.

Still, a lot of different walkthroughs. Eyes, Hair, Skin, Characters, A little Dragon, and then the Wizard on the cover. A lot of his brushes are also included.

A definte best buy!
