This review is from: The Art of Digital Photo Painting: Using Popular Software to Create Masterpieces (A Lark Photography Book) (Paperback)
Positives:This is a good introduction to the subject, well laid out chapters, not too much detail and well illustrated. Also a good selection of available files to 'play' with.
Negatives. this uses quite a few expensive softwares (although available in trial versions) simultaneously so if you wanted to recreate the ideas it could be very expensive. Also the description mentioned Corel PAinter Essentials, which I have, but I could not find any mention of this in the book. This book is aimed at Corel Painter users. As I went through the chapters the instructions were very much 'do this and do that without the 'why' so I found it difficult to reproduce on my own pictures.
Having said all that the book is well priced and manages to cover a lot of ideas and techniques worth persevering with.
