Good But Outdated
on 15 January 2014
This book is worth the cost but, due to the nature of the speed of technology change, some parts are already out of date. eg there are now styluses available that have pressure sensitivity and Bluetooth.
The book covers too many apps and so becomes confusing as to which to buy and use. On the plus side, the tutorials for sketching are very good.
The book speaks about the iPad being a great device for digital art but, then contradicts by pointing out the iPad's limitations! ie. the lack of pressure sensitivity on th iPad and, the poorer resolution for publishing works.
That said, there is enough in the book to gain much knowledge including about other Artists work. The quality of the physical book is very good.
Would I recommend it? Yes but, I've not given 5 stars for the reasons I've explained.
