Abstract:

A straight-to-the-point "everything-you-need-to-know" guide to the world of professional illustration for aspiring artists and recent art-school graduates--not only the technical essentials (the difference between narrative versus conceptual illustration, diagramming a composition, mastering negative space, and the impact of different mediums from watercolor to digital to textiles), but industry insights, real-world insider advice, and honest personal development tips from an experienced teacher ("if you say your style is 'manga' or 'anime' then you have no style").--Amazon.com.
