Book: Mastering Digital 2D and 3D Art
Publisher: Course Technology PTR
The very first artist probably used a stick to create the first drawing. Although sticks are great tools for many purposes, they are somewhat limited in their versatility as an art tool. From that early time until today, artists have searched to find better tools and media to create their art. This search has taken artists through cave paintings, to frescos, to oil paintings, to airbrushes, and finally, to digital art.The tool for the digital artist is the computer. For many artists the computer is the ultimate art tool. This is probably due to the versatility and flexibility of the computer. No other art tool has the breadth and depth of possibilities.This book takes a look at the creation of digital art. It is designed to help the artist achieve mastery over the media, and it covers both 2D and 3D art creation. The first half of the book shows you how to create great 2D artwork and paintings. The second half of the book explores digital art creation with the use of 3D art tools.
