A disapointing book for me
on 26 August 2013
I will qualify this feedback by restating the 'for me' aspect. I was seeking a book that would walk through the features of Illustrator CS6 and explain how to add that 'Wow' factor. Unfortunately this book does not deliver in the way that meets my needs.
Illustrator is a complex application, I have been using it since its introduced in the 'CS' form, has CS2, CS3, CS4 skipped CS5 and now have CS6. I do not use Illustrator frequently and whilst I have mastered some of the basics I just do not have the time, nor the artistic talent, to develop the output demonstrated in this work!
Having said that I am sure that if your are brimming with artistic talent waiting to be applied to digital artwork this book has plenty within it to stimulate your 'artistic bent'. Each Chapter is accompanied by a printed Gallery of finished illustrations that should inspire the reader - each illustration in the gallery has a brief explanation of how the image was created.
If you are looking for a book to walk you through the features of Illustrator CS6 and explain how to add that 'Wow' factor than I can't recomend The Adobe Illustrator CS6 Wow! Book - but if you have buckets of artistic talent then this book could be just what you are looking for!
