About This Class

Have you noticed the trend of adding hand drawn elements to photos? Several artists have gone viral with their drawn characters interacting with city streets and landscapes. Sure, you can add clip art to photos via apps on your phone, but why not take it to the next level? Hand drawn additions are one of a kind.

In this class, I'll show you how to add not only a still character but an animated one! I will discuss finding free-to-use photos, ideas for characters to add, drawing the frames, compiling them, and exporting an animated gif.

The only software necessary for this class is Adobe Photoshop!
