    Photoshop Studio with Bert Monroy: Digital Painting Book Review

    I am a huge fan of Bert Monroy and have been for some time now, so when Peachpit Press gave me the opportunity to review his new book, Photoshop Studio with Bert Monroy: Digital Painting, I could not wait to get started. When I first got my book in the mail, I ripped open the box wanting to jump into some lessons, but found it a little strange. Am I missing something? What happened to your typical Photoshop how-to-book? After reading the intro, Bert talks about how he was going to make the book a tutorial based book, but he got some feedback saying that people would be more interested in his process and the way he thinks. So I said to my self, ¿Self¿it is a different type of book that we are used too, but let¿s give it a try¿. When you first start reading the book, Bert talks about his process he goes through to start a painting. Bert touches on the sketch, perspective, reference material 'which is a huge part to painting', workflow and many more tips and tricks to a great painting. I was really enjoying the reading at this time. Even though I was not diving in and doing tutorials right away, I was learning a different way of thinking and a different way to approach thing ¿Process¿. After the first part of the book where you are learning Bert¿s process, then you go through many chapters of where he applies his process into creating paintings. In one of the chapters, Bert talks about creating a stone wall, and not just a typical stone wall, an aged stone wall that has a story to tell. When I looked at the final image, you can really see the amount of detail he put into that wall. It was not just an ordinary wall, when I said it had a story to tell, you can see that the wall has been there for years and has been through the best of storms, ¿it is all about the details¿. At the end of the book, we do come across a full chapter devoted to tutorials. Some of the tutorials are a little dated and have been around for some time, but he did get that little bit of how-to into the book¿¿Good Job Bert¿. Overall, this is a good book that talks a lot about process and different ways to approach painting in Photoshop. I do not recommend a beginner of Photoshop to dive right into this book, but it is one that I would pick up and have in your library. Photoshop Studio with Bert Monroy: Digital Painting By Bert Monroy Copyright 2008 Dimensions 8 X 9-1/8 Pages: 304 Edition: 1st. ISBN-10: 0-321-51587-0 ISBN-13: 978-0-321-51587-2
