cool...
may i suggest a "game designer" to "game artist" dictionary? (maybe it was only my dabbling on corporative design... but im still wondering what he did meant with "fresher"(well thats not true, he meant Aqua style, but we lost a day and half...))

oh and also a general "social skills and self defense techniques" to develop when dealing with executives?

no... seriously... post the full intended toc and maybe we can think of things you could add...

Will the book be available in the UK?
And do we Simply Maya users get a discount? LOL

It might make a good prize for a future challenge prize.

I am pretty sure that it will be internationally available.

I do plan on offering a signed copy as a prize in a game art themed challenge once it's released.

Sorry, this is just a game artist's book. Programming and game engine creation is a whole other set of books.

Can u send me a list of all books MAYA related? If u can I would be most appreciative.

If not, that's understandable too.
