About This Class

In this tutorial I am going to show you the entire process of creating a slick 80's neon style illustration using Adobe Photoshop. We will start with sketching and finding references, then move to drawing using just a mouse (no tablet needed!) and some basic tools such as pen and brush tools, applying some cool effects and adjustments, and finally polishing our artwork to give it a really pro look.

Although it is expected that you have a basic understanding of Photoshop. After watching this course you will be armed with unique techniques that I developed through 8 years of using Photoshop, and that will take your digital illustrating skill to the next level.

I really liked how the instructor shows another method of creating your own color palettes and how to easily trace elements! His drawing looks really COOL!
