Digital Costume Design and Collaboration gives in-depth instruction on how to draw, render, and fully design costumes using online tools and software.
Grounded in the use of Photoshop, the book explains the process of building a costume design from scratch, including information on digital tools and painting techniques.
The book demonstrates how to utilize social media, such as Flickr and Pinterest, to compile research; how to create user-friendly web based slide shows; and how to archive digital files for portfolios and personal websites.
It also demonstrates how to organize spec sheets, plots and inventories using Google Docs for easy editing and Dropbox for easy file sharing.
A companion YouTube channel featuring video tutorials of exercises and applications compliments the book.
