This techniques book shows beginning and intermediate users how to use CorelDRAW 7 and 8 and the companion product, Corel Photo-Paint, to produce sophisticated artwork. Although the final images are far from simple, the book makes them accessible with its large full-color screen shots and clear instructions.

You first learn illustration techniques, while creating artwork such as a glass of wine in CorelDRAW or a logo in Corel Photo-Paint. Next the book teaches design techniques, showing you how to build a brochure with original type treatment in CorelDRAW, and create special text effects and simulate the appearance of stained glass, gold, and chrome in Corel Photo-Paint. Finally, you learn techniques that work in both CorelDRAW and Corel Photo-Paint. You create cutout shapes, shadows, and embossed images in both packages. Overall, this book's straightforward guidance will help you move beyond dabbling in CorelDRAW to using the software for producing real artwork. --Kathleen Caster

Spotlight Reviews
Reviewer: Michelle Lill ( from Valparaiso, IN
I bought this book when it first hit the shelves and I've got to say, it's one that I've opened again and again for ideas and inspiration. Gary and Dave are wonderful teachers, talented artists, and humorous writers. I'm so glad they combined their considerable Corelian knowledge to write such a great book!

Reviewer: A reader from California
This book both teaches and entertains. The lessons consist of a series of succinct easy to follow steps that are suitable for both beginners and experienced users. My favorite parts are the sections entitled "Variations on a Theme" in which the authors suggest shortcuts and enhancements to the basic lessons. After reading these I had the tools and techniques to create my own designs. The "Notes" and "Tips" are useful too, and reflect the authors' deep experience in using all versions of Corel Draw and Corel Paint. And there is quite a bit of sly humor in the text and the sample designs.
