About the Book
We can draw better on the computer. In this book, we learn how. First, we will address and dismiss some common myths and misconceptions about drawing on the computer. Then we will look at some examples of what computer plan graphics can, and should, look like. Next we will learn the principles, strategies, and techniques for drawing well on the computer--skills that you can apply to any computer graphics software on the market. And finally, we will look at some practical, explicit, step-by-step drawing examples using the most familiar and popular graphics software today, Adobe Photoshop.
