DIGITAL PAINTING FOR THE COMPLETE BEGINNER by Carlyn Beccia introduces the world of creating visually stunning images through digital painting. The author begins with her love for art and her method of teaching it to the reader.
The book covers methods for the two top digital painting programs Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter. The book does a great job of introducing the workspace of these two programs. The book covers many important topics related to digital painting, such as scanning images in to be colored, color management, using a tablet for drawing and coloring, isolating areas of a painting for editing, and much more. After walking the reader through digital painting basics, Beccia provides several tutorials for the reader to dive into and put into practice.
DIGITAL PAINTING FOR THE COMPLETE BEGINNER is a great introduction to digital painting and I look forward to developing my skills as an artist through digital painting.
