This class will teach you how to breathe life back into your own digital illustrations through the use of a few basic design elements.
Student, Jesper Bertelsen's project.
Whether you are new to digital illustration, or you are experienced but would like to enhance your ability to incorporate color, pattern and texture into your art, this is the class for you. From concept to completion, you will come away from this class with a beautiful, hang-it-on-your-wall-worthy, piece of art.
What You'll Learn
"Here's where I'm currently at with this quiet, mid-century living room." -Dominic Flask, Student and Skillshare Instructor
What You'll Make
For this class you will be creating a digital illustration that will be your visual interpretation of an adjective. You will get the choice of one of two adjectives:"quiet" or "loud". You will accomplish this through the use of pattern, texture, and color. Your illustration can be as abstract or literal as you choose. The class will start with you determining how you would like to visualize the word. Based on your ideas and brainstorming, you will then select your strongest directions. This is a great time for you to get feedback from your peers to see if you are communicating the way you would like.
Recommended Software: Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop (If you don't have either one of these, you can download a free trial version of the Creative Suite 6 Design Suite at Adobe.com)
