Vector Magic from a Master Dec 13, 2001
This is a book that you wish wouldn't end because each chapter is flush with technical and artistic lessons of enormous practical value. Mr. Rockwell teaches you how to use paths and points in remarkably sophisticated ways to simulate reality. He covers the most complex FreeHand operations and manipulations in a style that is thoughtful, instructive, and easy to follow. How often does one encounter a skillful artist, adept technician, and superior communicator all in the same skin?
If you have a serious interest in refining your vector skills, and if you take pleasure in artistic discovery, then get hold of this book and don't let it go until you've read it all. But be forewarned: you may find yourself using FreeHand in ways you never thought imaginable. You may even find yourself preferring paths and points to pixels and paintbrushes!
Great Find Nov 24, 2001
Finally, a real illustrator who can write too!! This book is packed full of inspiring real world desgins. The author then proceeds to teach us how to produce these top class images using FreeHand.
Instead of teaching how to use FreeHand it is an INTERMEDIATE book which shows you how to do cut-out designs, theres a car, a bird, a realistic jewel case, products with labels added and much more. If you go to a bookstore, browse the 32 page color section and you'll be blown away with the quality of the projects contained in this book.
There is photorealism, drawing with stylized brushes, wonderful perspective projects, 3D for the web, using envelops and TONS more.
This is the book to get if you are already comfortable with FreeHand and want to expand your creative abilities.
