What are some good books on 3D technique?

A few days ago I found at the library "stop staring, facial modeling and animation done right" by Jason Osipa.

It takes a software-agnostic approach to modelling human faces. Looks interesting. It even goes into specific parts of faces such as lips, eyebrows etc.

William Vaughn's book about modeling is a good resource.

This should be the bible for digital artists (3D and Photograph) for lighting, color and rendering understandings.

This is an incredible overview of the whole process of making a short animation (or feature).

Quoting for agreement.

There should be a sticky thread on this. This question has been asked a hundred times, no offense OP. I'd blame you for not using the search if it was functional.

Some questions are so good that they should be asked 10000 times lol.

That should have been a Confucius saying.

You cannot go wrong with this book. William shows you the techniques, without being too software specific, so you can adapt to most 3d packages.

Also, if you have issues with the search function on this site, try using this technique instead:
