Technical Illustration is for illustrators looking to create artwork that's educational and eye-catching and expand their career prospects in this lucrative field.
The guitar illustration featured in this installment combines multiple materials with the right level of complexity, showing you how to create a cutaway that is elegant and accurate. Follow along with artist Brad Neal, as he shows how to research your subject, gather reference material, draw your initial line art, and turn it into an immersive, photorealistic drawing with Illustrator and Photoshop. He'll show how to recreate materials like wood, chrome, wire, and plastic, and create a cutaway drawing that exposes both the inner workings of the instrument and its polished veneer.
