Publisher Comments:

As much art book as guide, The Photoshop and Painter Artist Tablet Book: Creative Techniques in Digital Painting using Wacom and the iPad, Second Edition uses traditional drawing and painting theory exercises, coupled with real-life projects, to show readers how they can use Painter and Photoshop with pressure-sensitive tablets to draw and paint with a computer.

In this gorgeous, large format, full-color book, award-winning artist and author Cher Threinen-Pendarvis takes readers through a variety of projects designed to improve their drawing, composition, and conceptual thought processes while exploring different uses of the many brushes available in Painter and Photoshop. Readers will benefit from Cher’s creative thought processes and composition design secrets that she uses in her own work but all the concepts, processes, and projects in this book can be applied to readers’ own drawings and paintings.

Through step-by-step lessons and detailed examples, Cher shows readers how to set up a pressure-sensitive tablet and stylus; use the iPad for sketching out ideas and use related software such as Brushes, Art Studio, and Adobe Ideas; use mark-making tools in Photoshop and Painter; create tonal, gestural, and contour drawings with a pressure-sensitive tablet and stylus; incorporate scanned artwork into digital paintings; use photos as a reference for the illustrations; make creative use of color and ideas for composition design; translate traditional color theory to digital color tools; simulate canvas and paper; create mixed media; and more.

Synopsis:

Artists today use digital tools that allow them to work as naturally and spontaneously as if they were using traditional artist tools such as pastels, watercolors, oil media, and gouache. With the recent growth of the tablet market, there are more tools and more sophisticated features available now than ever before and an increased desire by artists to learn how to use them. As much art book as guide, The Photoshop and Painter Artist Tablet Book uses traditional drawing and painting theory exercises, coupled with reallife projects, to show readers how they can use Painter and Photoshop with pressure-sensitive tablets for beautiful results.

Award-winning artist and author Cher Threinen-Pendarvis takes readers through a variety of projects designed to improve their drawing, composition, and conceptual thought processes while exploring different uses of the many brushes available in Painter and Photoshop.

Among many valuable concepts and techniques you’ll learn to:

  • Create tonal, gestural, and contour drawings with a pressure-sensitive tablet and stylus
  • Use the iPad for sketching out ideas and use related software including Brushes, ArtStudio, Sketchbook Pro, Procreate, Adobe Ideas, and Adobe PS Touch
  • Translate traditional color theory to digital color tools
  • Incorporate scanned artwork into digital paintings and use photos as a reference for illustrations

Synopsis:

Digital artists who have the basics of Photoshop and Painter down but want to turn up their skill level and learn to actually draw and paint with a graphics tablet will find the instruction they need in this book.   Experienced traditional artists will benefit from the detailed coverage on digital brushwork and beginners will learn the basics of using a graphics table, as well as an understanding of artistic techniques. The Photoshop and Painter Artist Table Book, Second Edition provides hands-on lessons and details for both audience levels and readers will be inspired by the beautiful artwork throughout.
