About this book

Creative professionals around the globe choose Adobe Photoshop to create high-quality images for print, the Web, or any graphic-rich destination. As a designers tool, it has matured into the industry standard, yet the possibilities for artistic expression are greater than ever.

New Masters of Photoshop: Volume 2 is a showcase of the most innovative, inspiring, and imaginative digital art created in Photoshop today, featuring examples of photorealism, abstract art, graphic design, storytelling, fantasy art, and commercial illustration. All of the designers in this book are recognized, not only for their mastery and expertise in using Photoshop, but because they use it in interesting and unique ways to transfer their visions to print or screen.

Each author's chapter is a journey of deconstruction into one of their images, showing you the techniques and workarounds they used to create the image. Much more than this, though, each author tells you how they think what their creative process is, who their graphic influences are, how they work with Photoshop professionally, where their ideas come from when creativity has run dry offering a unique insight into the digital artists life and art.

On the accompanying CD, you'll find interviews with the authors, source files for the tutorials, and unflattened Photoshop files for closer inspection.
