Don Seegmiller featured here in a past Digital Image article is a professional illustrator, fine artist, art instructor at Brigham Young University, and author of a number of acclaimed books on Painter and Photoshop illustration techniques. This is a project book of the highest order, written by someone who not only has a deep understanding of Corel Painter, but knows how to share that knowledge.
If you are familiar with Painter and want to take your skills to the next level, you are in a for a treat. Although Painter X comes with a spiral-bound user manual which details how all the parts of Painter work, it stops short of showing how those parts work together. The book emphasizes time-saving techniques throughout. He demonstrates how he uses the digital medium much as he does the traditional ones, toning the canvas, blocking in , and then building up color using the supplied brushes.
This chapter covers a lot of ground pun intended as it shows a complete approach to creating a landscape.
Seegmiller uses a number of time-saving tricks that may surprise you. For example, did you know Painter has a fractal pattern generator? Or that it comes with plug-ins? This chapter shows how to create a rocky, stony texture using a combination of fractal patterns and a gradient. The mysterious Growth tool turns out to be very useful for creating cracks. Cool stuff! The Image Hose, probably one of the least-used tools in Painter, is put to work in this chapter.
Learn how to create your own nozzle a group of images loaded into the Image Hose to create complex scenes with ease.
The Make Tesselation tool is brought into service here to create the scales for a sea serpent. A complex background is created here using a combination of paper textures, patterns, custom brushes, and the image hose. As before, Seegmiller explains his process thoroughly, showing how a professional uses Painter to create an illustration.
This chapter is a bit different, in that it shows how the author creates a concept design, from start to finish. Even the strange Maze tool is used here, to add an interesting texture to the background. Advanced Painter Techniques is highly recommended to digital artists who are already familiar with Painter, and to anyone interested in seeing how professional illustrators create their amazing works of art.
