Additional Information

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!

I have been in the costume industry for over 25 years. This book includes a vast amount of information in an easy step by step format. It makes navigating Corel Painter so much easier than I ever imagined. I also took Annie's Master Class on Digital Rendering that uses this book as a reference guide.
I highly recommend this book for students as well professionals in costume and scenic design. My focus of work is now on
creating embossing patterns for trims, appliqués, and textiles. This book has helped me cut the time it takes to develop a pattern
easily in half.
We can all be purest, when time allows, and draw by hand, but when you are in a crunch situation an you need to
produce work quickly it is great to have Digital Costume Design & Rendering in your toolbox and skill set.
This book was the perfect gift for a "classically" trained fashion designer, who needed guidance on the technical computer aspects required for today's costume design. Talk about form and function! This book is a must, for all who demand to bring their design savvy to the next level.
