About This Class

Have a great pencil drawing in your sketchbook? Why not bring it to life and turn it into a fully polished Illustration!

In this class I will be using photoshop to digitally paint a spot illustration from my sketchbook, demonstrating two different methods. This technique allows the artist to utilize the speed and convenience of digital painting while at the same time maintaining the texture and character of the original pencil drawing.

Short, sweet, and very helpful.
Great class!!! The instructor's teaching style is spot on. This technique is the answer to a whole ton of questions I had about using my sketchbook and digital painting. Can't believe how much time this will save me.
