Digital Illustration - A Masterclass in Creative Image-making instructs the reader, through detailed, step-by-step tutorials, in the skills and techniques used by the masters of digital image-making. With the growth of computer arts, designers are now using Photoshop, Illustrator, and Flash as much as QuarkXPress.

Digital Illustration reveals the secrets of the industry’s most successful creatives who transfer traditional illustrative skills into digital dimensions, producing the highest quality, most commercially successful animation, three-dimensional and vector-based illustration. This book offers a master class for students and professional designers and illustrators who want to take their work beyond the constraints of two-dimensions and to gain greater commercial success.
