and is able to use it complementary in his/her image creation process.
He/She may be the pipe between engineers and artists.

This book gives artists who aim at “Technical Artist” position the fundamental basis
and knowledge they need.
The minimal requirement is near zero, since we include the necessary mathematics
and physics starters.
