Artists today use digital tools that allow them to work as naturally and spontaneously as if they were using traditional artist tools such as pastels, watercolors, oil media, and gouache. With the recent growth of the tablet market, there are more tools and more sophisticated features available now than ever before and an increased desire by artists to learn how to use them. As much art book as guide, The Photoshop and Painter Artist Tablet Book uses traditional drawing and painting theory exercises, coupled with reallife projects, to show readers how they can use Painter and Photoshop with pressure-sensitive tablets for beautiful results.

Award-winning artist and author Cher Threinen-Pendarvis takes readers through a variety of projects designed to improve their drawing, composition, and conceptual thought processes while exploring different uses of the many brushes available in Painter and Photoshop.

Among many valuable concepts and techniques you’ll learn to:
  • Create tonal, gestural, and contour drawings with a pressure-sensitive tablet and stylus
  • Use the iPad for sketching out ideas and use related software including Brushes, ArtStudio, Sketchbook Pro, Procreate, Adobe Ideas, and Adobe PS Touch
  • Translate traditional color theory to digital color tools
  • Incorporate scanned artwork into digital paintings and use photos as a reference for illustrations

5.0 von 5 Sternen Endlich ein brauchbares Buch über digitales Malen ! 11. Oktober 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
ich habe hier einige Bücher über digitales Malen gekauft, die trotz positiver Bewertung nicht praxistauglich sind.
Dieses Buch ist eine rühmliche Ausnahme !
Ist man der engl. Sprache einigermaßen mächtig , führt einen die Autorin durch alle Facetten des digitalen Malens.
Klasse aufgegliedert, bebildert und aufgeteilt für Photoshop- und Painter-Anwender.
Einrichtung des Graphik-Tabletts, Wahl der Pinsel, Umgang mit den Wacom-Pens, und und und... nichts fehlt .
Es gibt NICHTS Vergleichbares in Deutscher Sprache.
Um kein Missverständnis aufkommen zu lassen, es geht hier nicht ums "Malen lernen" sondern um Techniken des Digitalen Malens.
Ich empfehle dieses Buch allen, die malen können und das digitale Malen als Neuland betreten.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Develop painterly expression using digital methods 25. September 2013
Von C. B. Gillespie - Veröffentlicht auf
Most books about digital painting focus either on learning to use the software or on presenting the work of accomplished artists as inspiration. Cher's Artist Tablet does neither. Instead, she focuses on the basics that any painting must begin with--making expressive strokes and mixing colors. The book is aimed at anyone new to painting or experienced with traditional methods, but new to digital painting and using a stylus and tablet.

After warming you up with simple exercises using sketching and painting software for the iPad, the digital equivalent of the artist's go-anywhere sketchbook, Cher starts on the fundamentals of drawing and painting using both Painter and Photoshop. You don't need to have both applications, since each lesson that is developed in one program, also tells you what to use in the other program to produce similar results.

The Artist Tablet teaches just enough of the interface that you can select and modify brushes to make expressive strokes, and select and work with an artist's palette and paper. I like the way Cher purposely keeps this part of the instruction simple so you're focused on the process of creating a painting, rather than on the mechanics of manipulating the software. As you create the many short, but complete compositions in the tutorials, your work grows in complexity. In the process, you learn to add new brushes and new paints to your toolbox, but Cher is not trying to cover all the techniques, nor all the materials and brushes, that the software offers. You're simply learning to master your own hand in the creation of art, so that what you want to paint, you'll be able to, one stroke at a time.

If you're an experienced digital artist, this book will be too basic, but if you have a desire to learn to paint with digital tools, Cher's gentle, straightforward approach to the process of painting will encourage you to start.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Far More Impressive than the VERY Impressive 1st Edition 25. Oktober 2013
Von Brian M. Stoppee - Veröffentlicht auf
We were extremely pleased to learn that Cher was working on a second edition of "The Photoshop and Painter Artist Tablet Book." Her first edition, which is almost 10 years old, got plenty of love from us (translation: it has become a bit shop-worn). For this to become a reference source for us is quite a statement. We go back to the original Wacom SD tablets of 1991. Nevertheless, Cher packed enough into the first edition for us to thoroughly study. We already had her complete collection of the "Painter WOW!" books.

The bar was set pretty high for the second edition to be of great value to us. As with all the reviews we write, they're intended as our personal journals which serve as a guide for us to use later.

CH 1 - THE DIGITAL ART STUDIO - We ordered an iPad 2 the morning it went on sale. That was the start of something very new in our world. We go back to sketchpads in our childhood. The iPad (and even our iPhone) is our portable sketchpad/notebook. The page 1 opener, "Your studio is where you come to be creative..." immediately said to us, "Cher understands us." This chapter is an excellent scene-setter, going forward.

CH 2 - SKETCHING ON THE IPAD - Readers of our blogs know we have an almost 8 year old friend, Monica, who teaches us many undocumented tricks with our iPad sketching apps. This chapter leads us to believe that Cher has been hanging out with Moni. These 32 pages should be available as an updating app, much like this book's publisher, Peachpit, does with adding new materials to their Adobe Press CC Classroom in a Book series. Most iPad sketching app developers do a lousy job of documenting their products. This chapter is a must-have. It's a set of missing manuals for 9 apps.

CH 3 - PHOTOSHOP, PAINTER, AND TABLET BASICS FOR ARTISTS - The name of this chapter is deceptive. It made us think it was going to be about the two apps. At first we thought, "What can we be taught about them? We go back to Photoshop 2.0, Painter 1.0, and are Adobe Community Professionals." We were wrong. The focus isn't on the apps its on the role the hardware plays in manipulating the apps to their fullest.

It's important for many users to not just read this chapter, but to study it. When we got our big 12"x18" SD tablet, around 22 years ago, it came with a little 24 page booklet. A Wacom tablet was quite simple then. That's not the case anymore. We suggest that you do not breeze through this. It's designed to look very approachable, but it's packed with great stuff. Don't think of it as information to read. Approach chapter 3 as if it's a bunch of lessons.

CH 4 - ASSEMBLING BRUSHES AND PAINT - We must confess that we were once in love with Painter. The photos we turned into illustrations became something of our studio's visual trademark. With time Painter became a slow buggy mess (we're told it's better, now). Fortunately, about the same time we had Painter problems, Adobe was showing us their new paint engine for Photoshop CS5. If you favor one app over the other, fear not. There's something to be learned on every one of these pages. It's another, "This isn't a quick read."

CH 5-8 - (DRAWING, VOLUME, TONE AND MODELING, ATMOSPHERE) EXERCISES - At this point the book shifts gears and starts to work on technique more than technology. The clever part about this chapter is that it's constructed much like the Watson-Guptill books of our childhood. Instead of the sidebars listing what papers, paints, pencils, or pastels we'll need, it bullet-points electronic tools.

CH 9 - STARTING WITH A SCANNED DRAWING - From an author's perspective, this is a dangerous direction. Over the past 25 years there must have been well over 100 books published books which advise you to "Start with a scan..." So, was this one a snore for us? We thought it was going to be. We ended up carefully studying every page. In fact, it's amazing this much information fits into 26 pages. It's impressive.

CH 10 - USING A PHOTO REFERENCE FOR PAINTING - In our early Painter days, our illustrations were too photo realistic, once we looked back 10 years later. At the time, photo realism was popular. At this point, we should have no preconceived fears of the book going wrong, but we held our breathe and were once again pleasantly surprised. This is refreshingly old school directions but with new digital tools. Strangely enough, that's innovative in a standardized rush-to-electronic education all around us.

CH 11 - DEFINING THE FOCAL POINT - Initially, a significant number of people were sure our Painter projects were achieved with some sort of quickly-applied Photoshop filter. It surprised them to learn that the stroke-by-stoke look we had was accomplished stroke-by-stroke. There's plenty of instruction available which takes you to the point where you've got a nice illustration. It drops you there. This, however, is a rare to find of educational experiences outside of expensive one-to-one consulting projects which move you toward enhancing an image beyond the basics.

CH 12 - SIMULATING PAPER AND CANVAS -There was a time when even the slightest suggestion that textures could be applied after the fact and we'd think, "Conversation's over." Those days are behind us. How do you do that, and make it work? Here's where Cher does your homework for you. This chapter is her Quick Start gift to you.

CH 13 - RETOUCHING, TINTING, AND PAINTING - If you have no background in working with old photos, the first half of this chapter is important. If you've been around that block once or twice, you can skip the first few pages, but not the chapter. However, once you get to page 218 and find the finished project of some red-head, who looks quite similar to the red-head in the "About the Author and Artist" section, in the front of the book, you won't skip the next 7 pages which explain how it was done, guaranteed.

CH 14 - COMPOSING FROM THE IMAGINATION - Before you start this chapter, ponder the chapter's name for a few seconds. It's a departure from the rest of the book. It's okay to ask, "Why's this here?" The book stops. Your work continues. That's what this chapter is all about. It's supposed to rev you about what to do next.

CONCLUSION - This is no small project for an author to create. Our second book is 504 pages and took 10 months, start to finish. We're impressed with the amount of work Cher put into this book. It's far superior to the first edition. The only thing which is repetitive with the first edition is that soon our copy of the second edition will be as shop worn as the first one.

It's an easy 5-star must-have.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful and User Friendly 30. September 2013
Von L. King - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Cher Pendarvis has produced another beautiful and user friendly book. I own the first edition of the Artist Tablet Book along with a couple of Cher's Painter Wow! books. Her writing style and information layout is pleasant and easy to follow. She is a master at making information user friendly. I have not finished this edition but very impressed with it. I like to highlight parts that I can come back to later.
