Summary

Just when you think you've learned all that you could ever know about working in Photoshop, digital artist and photomontage king Steve Caplin comes along with yet another masterful method for creating incredible works of art in Photoshop. This time, he'll show you how to create complete images, from start to finish, entirely within the software program. No source material, photographs, or existing files from other software packages are needed, saving you valuable time and resources.

The techniques you'll learn in this ground-breaking new book will help you combine your artistic vision and skills with an understanding of how to manipulate the built-in Photoshop filters to produce impressive, eye-catching artwork.

Each chapter opens with a complete double page illustration, created entirely in Photoshop. Then, carefully laid out step-by-step instructions show you how each element in the illustration is created, and how they are all combined in the end to make a convincing final image. Using Steve's proven methods for success, you'll be able to produce images that reflect a more finely crafted, hand drawn approach, whether you're an artist for your own enjoyment or a working professional looking for a leg up on the competition.

-The only book of its kind that does not rely on any external images whatsoever--each and every element is created directly in Photoshop

-A chapter covering the basics of using specific filters and textures and a chapter providing a summary of common techniques and tools will help you brush up on your general Photoshop skills so you can move through the rest of the book successfully

"An outstanding key to using Photoshop to create powerful graphics. Learn how to create complex images without source material, photos or files from other software packages using techniques that blend artistry with keys to manipulating the latest Photoshop filters. A top pick!"--Bookwatch

"This book is very rewarding and absolutely fascinating to work through. I enjoyed all the "lessons" and learned lots of new and welcome techniques. A big recommendation!"--eJournal for the Tucson Computer Society

An amazing guide April 15, 2011

This is a generous textbook (and a handsomely designed book) - Caplin shares some pretty impressive secrets, which demystify the process of creating complex illustrations using just the tools of Photoshop, and without any elements drawn from elsewhere. By the way, I am a graphic design & web design student...and this book is priceless in my opinion! Don't hesitate, just buy it. I highly recommend it.
