About This Class

4c67dae8

If you are a designer or an illustrator, you have likely already stumbled upon this great way to enhance your work. Textures take a flat piece of artwork, and add a rustic and handmade feel, that can really improve your overall design.

Whether you have dabbled in textures, or you are just discovering them now, this class will show you a variety of ways to photograph, and digitally create your own custom textures from scratch.

It doesn’t matter if your style is precise vector shapes, or hand drawn and imperfect, textures will give life to your artwork far beyond anything you could expect.

This class will use both Photoshop & Illustrator to show you a variety of my favorite ways to create textures. Of course, textures can be made in an unlimited variety of ways, but this class will give you a jumping board to inspire your own creativity in creating custom textures.

Once I have shown you my methods for creating textures, you will then hand letter, illustrate, or design your own custom pennant, and apply one (or more) of the methods taught for creating and applying your own custom texture.

Did I mention there is an amazing prize? Well, if you think it would be cool to get your own design on a pennant AND a 1 year Skillshare Premium membership for free read the “Oxford X Brommet Pennant Contest” under the “Discussion” section. 

What, you’ve never made your own textures using salt before? Well, this class is for you!

Also, check out my other 2 Skillshare classes on Designing With Halftones and Block Printing.
