I just picked up the Artful Dodger today and I'm amazed to what detail Mr. Bantock delves into when describing his methods. Some of his techniques for texture seem barbaric for a creative process(muslin on board); but really a captivating read. As for my own opinion on digital art, i find that even though it's reproduced in the same way, it just doesn't have a tactile feel. With Nick's work i get the feeling that you're only seeing half the picture, because metallics photograph so strangely, and alter so significately with light and angle.
