I did once, and I might consider it it again if I happen to have money, even though that previous bought was terrible because I didn't get the book until half a year after I paid even if it was supposed to be shopped right away. It was a terrible experience, and the book - though very nice - was not worth it.
I loooove the book I bought from I'll buy any book she prints. I'm pretty sure I bought a digital book from but it was loooong ago... There are a few other dAs I'd buy from, but they haven't published yet :/
I have bought several art books. There are some I still want to buy, but then they are too expensive. I think so far, quality wise, I like the books from a single artist. The quality of art is usually similar to their output on DA. The books I were less satisfied with where collab/charity ones, mainly because there are less pieces that I like in them. And for certain charity ones, I felt people put in less effort.
But I think the art books I have that I am most satisfied with are ones sold outside of DA. Like those giant ones by super pro artists (but cost twice as much).
taaaak. chociaz w sumie teraz patrze na polke i nie znajduje ich w takiej ilosci jak myslalam xD glownie artbooki z konwentow chyba. i azjatyckich ksiegarni trololol a ulubiony devowy to chyba by *einlee
Well I suppose it's an art book. I bought it without realizing what it was. It was a book on dragons and it had various illustration of dragons done by artists on Deviant Art. It also had a short bio on the artist. I wonder what I did with that...
I didn't think any artist on dA sold art books. I mean I've gotten art books with art from Pixar and Dreamworks, concept art and process sheets and all that and I love them because I can glean a lot from just the pictures. But there are some on dA whom I would love to get an art book from.
I've bought one artbook and one art "booklet" from artists on dA and I've been very happy with both of them<3 I bought the artbook in 2011 and still quite often pick it up from the bookshelf and browse through it<3 And the booklet as well.
Zwykle kupuję raczej na konwentach i wtedy od razu wiem, co biorę [a przynajmniej puki jeszcze jeździłam na te mangowe, bo teraz już tyba tylko na tych fantasy bywam xD] ale mam tez jedno z waszych pierwszych "Chocolates&hearts" i oczywiście nie żałuję!
