About the Book

Most computer drawings simply do not possess the same clarity or artistry of hand-drawn graphics. Drawing Plan Graphics on the Computer will teach you how to draw with the same elegance and creativity of hand-drawn graphics, while still enjoying the efficiency and flexibility of today's computer graphics software.

First, some common myths about drawing on the computer are addressed. Then, a portfolio of examples of what computer graphics can, and should, look like is presented. Next, sixty principles, strategies, and techniques for drawing well on the computer are explained--skills that you can apply to any software on the market. Finally, some practical, step-by-step drawing examples are demonstrated using the most familiar and popular graphics software today, Adobe Photoshop.
