About This Class

eb79d30b

  • For this class, we will be playing with patterns in Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. I will show you the ins and outs of creating your own unique pattern and playing with colors. We will start with some basic elements, then color them and play with them to give them a overprint effect, make our final pattern and then add textures. Once this is done, I will show you how this technique can be applied to all your illustrations and typography too!

  • This style is great to give your project a retro feel. Not only that, we will be creating filters for our effect that are reusable and can be applied across any artwork!

  • For your class project, you have to create a pattern of your choice in duotones. I will be guiding you step by step about how to proceed and at the end of each video, there will be a small homework.

  • This class is for everyone who is looking to learn a new skill or wanting to add something to their portfolio. While some prior knowledge in using the pen tool is recommended (you will need that for basics of drawing your elements), I would nevertheless share links to guide you the appropriate classes for the same. I would also recommend you check out my first class on the same topic, i.e Debunking Retro: A Beginner's Guide to Overprinting for some prior knowledge on the same topic.

  • So let’s get started!
