About 3dtotal Publishing

3dtotal Publishing is a small independent publisher specializing in inspirational and educational resources for artists. Our titles proudly feature top industry professionals who share their experience in step-by-step tutorials and quick tip guides placed alongside stunning artwork to offer you creative insight, expert advice, and all-essential motivation.

Initially focusing on the digital art world, with comprehensive volumes covering Adobe Photoshop, Pixologic’s ZBrush, Autodesk Maya, and Autodesk 3ds Max, we have since expanded to offer the same level of quality training to traditional artists. Including the popular Digital Painting Techniques, Beginner’s Guide, and Sketching from the Imagination series, our library is now comprised of over forty titles, a number of which have been translated into different languages around the world.

3dtotal Publishing is an offspring of 3dtotal.com, a leading website for CG artists founded by Tom Greenway in 1999.

Corporate social responsibility

3dtotal Publishing is fortunate enough to be owned by someone who sincerely cares about the world we live in. Here is a summary of some of the things we do to try to help the earth and the people who inhabit it.


Effective altruism

In the past five years we have started to research and explore the world of effective altruism. We are very privileged that our success has allowed us to do this. We are proud to say that we are able to give 10% of all profits to good causes, using the Centre for Effective Altruism as our guide to ensure the funds are used as efficiently as possible. Of course we have to thank the amazing artists and community who buy our books for making this opportunity possible.


 Carbon footprint

As a business, and especially as a publisher, we are also conscious of our carbon footprint. In the last twelve months we have therefore made substantial efforts to offset our impact on the environment, including donating an amount of our annual profit to Cool Earth, a charity that works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction. This in effect protects an additional 30 acres of rainforest per year with the aim of offsetting the carbon our business produces many times over.
