Perfect for self-teaching!
I have been in the process of self-teaching digital painting for some time now. I found this series of books on Amazon, and became so excited! The material inside is very helpful and includes topics like: backgrounds, skin textures, etc ... Definitely worth it!

The techniques will definitely help a beginner, but the artwork presented in the book is hardly "Master" level quality. Besides, most of the techniques can be found in a cursory google search.

Great for the artist who wants to learn digital painting
I've gotten a number for digital painting instruction books, but found nothing that really sat you down and said "This is the brush to use in this situation" or "to get this effect I did a,b and then c". This book does just that. If you want to make your digital paintings look more like the pros, this book takes you through making custom brushes (which is probably the most important thing other books didn't cover), where and when to use those brushes, and explains the techniques they use step by step and picture by picture. Each chapter is a tutorial written by the artist him/herself and addresses most things you would want to ask as an artist. It isn't a video where you're looking over their shoulder as they work, but this is the first book I would reach for if someone asks me about digital painting and should be the first you consider if you want to learn about it. If that were not enough Focal Press (the publishers) have web resources which include the custom brushes that accompany the tutorials in this book, so even if you have trouble creating your own brushes or wonder if you're doing it right you can download and use the same brushes the artists in the book used.
