Hi People,  In this post i will make an extensive list with links and materials about computer graphics.

I will suggest lot of books, papers and websites that talk about Math (for games), Graphics APIs like DirectX/XNA and some specific topics of Computer Graphics like animation and terrain.

    I think that everything said was actually very logical.
    But, what about this? suppose you wrote a catchier title?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but
    suppose you added something that grabbed people’s attention?
    I mean Books, Papers and Links – Computer Graphics
    | Ploobs is a little plain. You could glance at Yahoo’s home page
    and see how they write post headlines to get people to click.
    You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab
    people interested about what you’ve got to say. In my
    opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.
