Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this comprehensive guide, Lardner and Roberts, senior lecturers at Arts University College at Bournemouth (UK), survey the current range of digital illustration applications and techniques. While Photoshop and Illustrator are discussed in considerable depth, the manual does not ignore traditional media, offering many possibilities for incorporating drawing and painting into digital processes. A variety of projects encourage readers to experiment with new digital tools, and a short section on professional practice describes what it takes to earn a living as an illustrator. VERDICT Best for intermediate and experienced artists who would like to become more comfortable using computers in the creative sphere.
