Wacom is offering a new free art and illustration video training DVD featuring Daniel Lieske, Uli Staiger and Angie Taylor to anyone who buys an Intuos4 graphics tablet. You can watch clips from the DVD below.
The Meet the Masters Vol 2 DVD features around 4.5 hours of video across Photoshop, Illustrator and Corel Painter. Here's the blurb for the sections.
- Digital drawing and painting in Photoshop – Learn to create an entire illustration from scratch, from setting up a workspace to sketching, drawing and colouring techniques.
- Photo Illustration – Follow digital artist Uli Staiger as he uses Photoshop to create a breath taking composition. Through the process, learn about everything from 3D tools and blend modes to masking and layer adjustments.
- Drawing in Illustrator – Find out about the different brushes in Illustrator that create a wide variety of effects in images.
- Painter crash course – Explore Corel Painter’s artist’s tools and use them to create a piece of artwork from start to finish.
The DVD features lessons with picture-in-picture footage of the trainer working with their Intuos4 pen tablet, enabling viewers to learn from their techniques up close. The watch & work mode allows viewers to follow the tutorial displayed in a small window on screen and practice at the same time.
The ‘Meet The Masters’ series is available separately in its entirety for £69.95 or as three separate DVDs (£26.95 each) from Wacom’s eStore.
