Digital Illustration Materials
Digital illustration can result in highly detailed, fiercely dynamic artwork. Unlike drawing or painting, digital illustration allows you to make dramatic enhancements with just a few clicks of a button. Before working on the projects in this chapter, note that it’s important to have an understanding of the basic tools and functions of your image-editing software (I prefer Photoshop®). However, if you don’t have a background in digital illustration, you can still use these projects as references for drawing or painting—each piece of art begins with a drawing or painting by hand.
