What You’ll Be Creating The publishing world has recently seen an explosion in popularity of clothbound books, which are stunning modern tributes to a centuries-old method of designing books. Houses like Penguin and HarperCollins have rediscovered the vintage charms of the clothbound style, and self-publishers are quickly picking up on the trend too. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to set up the artwork for a clothbound book cover in Adobe InDesign and Adobe Illustrator, and look at how to maximise the design’s impact using a restricted color palette and simple silhouetted graphics. If you want to learn more about creating simple, high-impact book covers, or if you’re just a fan of vintage design, this tutorial is going to be right up your street! 1.

Know Your Brushes We can’t start these paintings without first arming ourselves with the proper tools. And in order to paint digitally, I’ll be using a Wacom Intuos 3 graphics tablet. There are so many brush options available online that it can be difficult to know which ones to choose. Let me make this process simple by telling you that you already have incredible brushes waiting for you in Adobe Photoshop CC. Just hit F5 on your keyboard to bring up the Brush panel. Click over to Brush Presets and choose from the list of brushes already provided for you.

They use black and white imagery with low key lighting to creating striking pictures with high contrast between light and shadow.
