Free Download | Digital Painting Fundamentals with Corel Painter X

Written By share_e on Friday, April 29, 2011 | Friday, April 29, 2011

Digital Painting Fundamentals with Corel Painter X is an introduction to drawing and painting using a Wacom graphics tablet and the industry standard software for pixel-based art. Each chapter is full of exercises designed to teach basic skills, such as eye-hand coordination. Easy-to-follow projects lead you from a simple, still life sketch to drawing the human figure. Each lesson is designed for novices as well as artists who want to transfer their traditional skills to the computer. You'll learn techniques for imitating natural media such as charcoal, watercolor, and oils. A wide variety of styles and subject matter is covered, ranging from classic landscape to experimental abstract painting as well as mixed media portraits and caricature.

With no experience with this software the fact I needed some lessons became really obvious, and this book which was one of 3 different books I purchased on Painter X was an excellent book to start with. The lessons are easy to follow and clear. After 4 of the lessons I had enough confidence to branch off and start doing my own thing. After producing some of my own work, I would return and continue with the lessons. I would recommend this to anyone who is just starting off .. its not a definitive book which covers every nook and cranny - its a book which gives you basic knowledge to quickly start using the program.
