Reviews - What do customers think about Digital Illustration: A Masterclass in Creative Image-making?
One-Dimensional Dec 11, 2007
I wasn't impressed with the illustrations that were showcased in this book. The vast majority (more than 90% of the book) of the illustrations are very juvenile and look as though they were created by an elementary school student. I don't have anything against that style, but there's certainly a wide variety of contemporary styles that could have been showcased instead of page after page of flat drawings.
If you're into this style of illustration, you may thoroughly enjoy this book. I was hoping for a broader range of styles and more substance regarding illustration techniques (the book is mostly "Illustrator Profile" interviews).
Not impressed Jul 6, 2007
I didn't like the tutorials, and most of the illustrations in this book were terrible. You won't get much out of this book that you can translate into practical portfolio pieces. Get Illusive: A guide to contemporary illustration, or handmade if you want to see what the real movers and shakers in the illustration business are doing.
