The Elements: V1 eBook is a 70-page guide to 2D digital painting and can be followed in most software packages that support paintbrushes and layers. Within this downloadable PDF eBook we have chosen some of the most commonly used aspects of digital painting and asked two or three professional artists to cover a specific theme or "element”, resulting in two or three different styles and techniques that can be viewed side by side.
In the first volume of the Elements eBook series, we cover such topics as painting eyes, fabric, fire and smoke, flesh wounds, and fur and hair, with the help of such talented and experienced artist as Benita Winckler, Natascha Roeoesli, Richard Tilbury, Stephanie Loftis, Adonihs and Shane Madden.
