The Digital Renaissance teaches you how to translate the methods and skills found in traditional art to the digital medium. By covering fundamental painting principles and the basics of digital software, before moving into tutorials that break down key techniques, professional artist Carlyn Beccia teaches you how to use the tools at hand to paint your own works of art.
Each chapter showcases one great painter and analyzes the techniques that set each one apart. These techniques are then imitated in step-by-step tutorials, allowing you to achieve amazingly convincing results and bring your own work to new creative heights.
