For theatre, film, television, entertainment or fashion design, Digital Costume Design & Rendering will help you master digital tools to increase productivity and creativity.
Using Corel Painter or Adobe Photoshop, author Annie Cleveland's years of professional experience as a costume designer and a teacher will quickly immerse you in the world of digital costume design.
Written by a costume designer for costume and fashion designers, this definitive, how-to guide takes you from the basics of opening the program and exploring the workspace to working with color and layers. Selections and transformations are followed by working with patterns and then it's on to the finishing touches for your final design. Included as a bonus is a unique chapter on digital makeup design to complete your work.
Want to see how that design looks with a different fabric? Change the color of that hat? Take the approved costume for one dancer and turn it into a chorus of 10? The director's requested just a few minor revisions by tomorrow. Think the sketches would look better on a different texture or tone of paper?
Annie Cleveland's Digital Costume Design & Rendering is the one book you need!
