And in this case, it perfectly reaches its goal. The first part will familiarize you with the software, not only with the parameters to create or resize a document but also with all the tools you’ll be able to use to make a digital work. Once the interface assimilated, the tools known and some keyboard shortcuts memorized, your real job begins! First the drawing basics (composition, lights, colors, perspective, etc) are explained with a lot of schemes. Then different digital paintings are explained from A to Z : a mountainous landscape, a dark cave, a cartoon character and many more. This part of the book is particularly interesting because the step by step is very detailed. We learn techniques and notably about the use and creation of brushes.

The next part focuses on “Quick tips”. There are 44 pages and each one explain a specific elements in five steps. How to draw water, fire, hairs or even dragon muscles? You’ll have the answers!
