Jewelry Illustration [Spiral-bound] Dominique Audette; Tim McCreight and Dominque Audette
With almost 1000 drawings, this comprehensive book leads students systematically through the development of forms rendered in perspective, starting with simple boxes and working up to curvilinear jewelry objects. Beyond teaching the ability to render forms clearly for clients, this instruction will hone the ability to think three dimensionally. This book was originally written in French and published in Quebec where the author teaches jewelry illustration. The English-language edition features a new layout and more durable cover, but otherwise retains every powerful image of the original. There are only a few books about jewelry rendering, and none of them reaches back to the basics with the depth or detail found here.
