About This Class

♦ See attach files for bear image and rgb codes ♦

Hello + Welcome
Digital illustration has multiple applications.  One of my favorite is to create art prints.  My recent art print collection utilized Pantone's 2016 color palette of the year and a contemporary tribal illustration technique.
The lesson is this class teaches students how to:

  • create the contemporary tribal technique
  • trace an image (the bear, see Attach File section)
  • apply Pantone's 2017 Spring Palette (10 color trends)
  • make faux patterns
  • use gradient color
  • polish the image for a professional and framable finish

If you do not have Adobe Illustrator, you can download a free trial on Adobe.com
