The world of digital art has exploded in recent years, with amateur and professional artists alike taking the notion of "fine art" to creative levels never before imagined. In this practical yet wholly inspiring, beautiful book, Susan Ruddick Bloom highlights her own work as well as that of her masterful contemporaries to show just what can be possible when artists take their work a few steps further. Focusing on collage, painting, panoramic, and sketching as well as several other artistic methods, this book's uniqueness comes from a thorough discussion of using both Photoshop and Painter to create stunning digital effects. Advanced artists will be able to dive right in, while less experienced artists can get a refresher on each program's basics in the Essential Painter and Photoshop Techniques chapter. Suggested projects as well as downloadable practice images from the book provide the reader with all of the knowledge necessary to emulate the work of some of the industry's best.
