I'm disappointed. I wanted to like this book. I expected to like it. I expected to learn the fundamentals of the new Painter 12. It just wasn't meant to be. What I realized is that Rhoda Grossman Draws is a talented illustrator, and this book may be just what you need if you want to create drawings similar to Rhoda's.

"Digital Painting Fundamentals with Painter 12" should have really been titled: "Digital Caricatures and Still Life with Painter 12 and the Wacom Tablet."

You can use Painter without a tablet (though I would not recommend it), but the author assumes you have a Wacom tablet. She covers the Wacom tablet almost as much as she covers Painter.

After reading the introduction, I downloaded the necessary files (+300MB) -- a procedure that was not at all straight-forward. The book provides a URL for the downloads, which redirects to another URL, which provides a search screen to look for the compressed zip files.

From the very first page in lesson one, it refers to an online file by name, but not which zip file to find it in. There are parts that a novice may think they're just not getting it, but some of "it" is confusing in the way it's written, or it's short on information. For example ...

Page 22, "Size Matters": all you really need to do here is zoom out, not reduce the size of the file.

Page 23 "Clone-and-Trace" The author states that the program "... deletes the image ..." -- False. Don't worry, Painter will not delete any of your images, whew! "Cloning" is actually very different than "Tracing" so don't be surprised if that topic is confusing as written.

Page 206, quote: "... a Painter or Photoshop file that's 8" x 10" at 300 ppi weighs in at 20MB." -- False. She's comparing pixel density to file size, and they just do not relate. That file's pixel density (7,200,000 total pixels) could result in a file size from 1MB to 1000MB ... or more. It all depends on how complex the file is (e.g., layers, channels, masks, paths, etc.).

I stopped at the beginning of lesson two. If you want to use Painter to draw caricatures and still life, this book may be for you -- but be aware that the writing may be confusing or misleading at times.

When I first posted this review the resource files for the lessons were not available on the publisher's website. When I called their customer service department to inquire about the files they couldn't tell me when they would be available. They sent me an email today (8/2/2011) to let me know that they were now available for download. I was able to log on to their website and get the files. One tip - If you search for the files by author name you need to search by "Rhoda Grossman" (nothing comes up under "Rhoda Draws" or "Rhoda Grossman Draws" which is how the author's name is listed in the book and on Amazon). I thought it was very good customer service for them to actually send me an email to let me know that the files were available.

This is only a preliminary review. So far, I have worked through the first 2 exercises and have skimmed the rest. The first lesson walks you through the basics like workspace, tool and color selection, creating custom palettes and how to set up your pen tablet's sensitivity. The second chapter goes over Painter 12's quick clone feature. Each chapter includes practice exercises where you actually get to practice using the features described. For example, in Chapter 2 you learn to sketch an apple with a variety of different media by using the quick clone feature and one of the sample files downloaded from the publishers website.

The book doesn't give a comprehensive explanation of each and every one of the software's tools and features. You can get that from the User's Manual and Corel's Website. Rather, the book teaches how to draw and paint using those tools and features. It is as much a how-to art book as it is a software manual. In my opinion, this is a perfect combination and is just what I was looking for - particularly the practice exercises. I am really enjoying this book and would rate it A+.
