Default Aspiring Game Artist

Hi guys, is anyone aware of any books/dvd/ etc that are available that would help me into the gaming industry, I already have Mike's Game artists guide, and a couple others, I am more looking for help with lighting in games (vertex lighting, baking etc) and help with texturing in photoshop meshes would be advantagous as well as my ps skills are very limited at the minute. Would prefer books/dvd to links to tutorials, but what ever you have would be greatly received.

Thanks guys.

Mike

the idea I'm cooking up for a new book actually goes over a lot of that stuff, but of course, that's a ways down the pipe.

Cheers Mike, keep us posted if you do decide to go through with a third book, especially if it covers some of the core knowledge to help us into the game industry as I'm finding a shortage in media specifically aimed that way.
