Good news: The DVD version of the new stamp art video is now available.
The DVD includes 72 minutes of total running time, including:
• 38 minute main feature
• 13 minute extended interview with paleontologist Tom Rich
• 8.5 minute narrated slide show, with almost 100 images, including preliminary drawings and the full range of philatelic products from Australia Post
• 13.5 minute bonus feature on the making of Dinotopia ("Dinotopia: Art, Science, and Imagination")
The DVD also includes a free 5x7" photoprint of the stamp minisheet inside, making it a great gift for the stamp collector, dino-phile, or art student.
Praise for the previous DVD: "How I Paint Dinosaurs"
"For any art student or illustrator wanting to learn how to create realistic scenes from one's imagination this inexpensive DVD is a gold mine of information and learning!"—Christopher Evans, Head of Matte Painting Department, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi"
"James Gurney's 'How I Paint Dinosaurs' is not only a fascinating look into a master-illustrator's creative and technical process, it outlines fundamental techniques useful to any artist interested in infusing their work with life-like authenticity." —John-Paul Balmet, Concept Designer
Note: The DVD is NTSC, Region 1 encoded, mastered on a Mac, so technically it's optimized for North America, but I'm told it should work in most modern DVD players internationally. Shipping overseas is less than $5. In any event, your satisfaction is guaranteed.
