Painter 8 Creativity: Digital Artist's Handbook. Thorough. Inspirational. Colorful. Creative. This comprehensive, full-color guide to Corel Painter 8 software helps artists to paint digitally on their computer. This handbook explains everything from the basics of setting up your digital canvas to generating original paintings, painterly animations manipulating and transforming photographic images, and constructing evocative photo-collage. Projects in this book include simple through advanced techniques and creative strategies for all levels.

Painter 8 Creativity gives you, the visual artist, the explanations you need in order to maximize the power of Corel Painter 8, whether you are a digital designer, multimedia artist, photographer, illustrator, animator, or graphic artist. Sutton illustrates how to transfer traditional art skills to the computer. He teaches the animator how to add painterly effects to their work, whether for video, TV, or the Web. He explains how the photographer can transform their images into beautiful artistic paintings and collages using natural-media tools. And, for Adobe Photoshop users, this book will explain the expanded creative potential Painter adds to your work!

Sutton takes a knowledgeable and straightforward approach to this step-by-step project-based book, explaining how each tool is used, every effect achieved, and every topic thoroughly described. The book allows you to build upon your knowledge so that if you're a beginner, you have the chance to become an advanced user; and if you're an advanced user, this is your opportunity to hone and flex your skills while learning additional creative techniques.

This book's companion website offers additional tips and tools! This site, designed by Denise Laurent, the creator of the fabulous Oil Funky Chunky brush, includes links to useful educational Painter and art resources plus: updates, tutorials, tips & tricks, a gallery, and Painter goodies!
