5.0 out of 5 stars I am VERY impressed! It deserves every bit of "WOW"..., 9 Aug. 2001

This review is from: The Painter 6 Wow! Book (Paperback)
I am a traditional artist, accomplished in the fields of acrylics, crayons and pencil work in particular. I have long been drooling over what can be accomplished with Photoshop and Painter and their likes, in terms of building artwork and illustrations from scratch. However making the jump to computer graphics has proved to be quite difficult or complex at best. I have purchased nummerous books on those programs but they have all been 99% about image editing and touching up or making graphics for the web. Not exactly what I needed. Till now! This volume has with one fell swoop fulfilled all of my above wishes. In here I have found detailed explanations of every technique imaginable from gouache to coloured pencils. It is wonderful! The explanations and learning aside, the book is also chokefull of inspirational work from master painters and illustrators.
And this is not all. All the primary focus of the book is on illustration and painting, the book also covers the programs abilities in touching up photos and creating web graphics.
I am very impressed, and consoled that I will soon enough be able to master computer graphics as yet another artistic outlet thanks to this volume. I believe it offers just as much for both beginners, intermediaries and advanced artist.
If you have any of the same aspirations as I did, don't hesitate to buy this book. Not only is it one of the few books that can teach you what you need to know, but it is also excellent value for money, as the pages are jammed full of tips, instructions and vivid colour images. Wow! indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars for the core desktop artist, 25 Oct. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Painter 6 Wow! Book (Paperback)
this book is one of the best in the subject but beware, this is neither for the faint hearted nor the begginer. the techniques exposed here with nice finish details is mostly assumed knowledge and some of them will have you reaching for other resources such as the application's web site or other in-detail type of books in order to piece the steps together, depending on your level. Still this book is great if your looking at results after you mastered the how-to's. Check out the look inside this book link to get an overall idea. don't get it if you are a begginer or you'll be a frustrated painter.
