Abstract:

Challenging tutorials, 35 imaginative projects, and tips from professional artists introduce beginning students to the building blocks of art. This profusely illustrated book teaches serious beginners the fundamental skills of graphic design as an introduction to their formal study in fine art, illustration, computer game design, interior design, animation, and virtually all other avenues in the visual arts. The author advises on setting up a proper workspace and assembling the needed materials--everything from sketchpads and paints to affordable computer software. Chapters that follow present themes and related projects that instruct readers in: the basics of line art for illustration and lettering; understanding color and tone and using color media; texture in art; spatial relationships and perspective; creating shapes and relating them to other elements of composition. More than 200 color illustrations show students how to apply what they are learning in a wide range of media.--From publisher description.
