About This Class

In this course, I will be teaching how you can use basic shapes in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to create beautiful abstract artwork that can be used for packaging design, posters, or fun personal projects.

I will walk you through the entire process of creating the shapes in illustrator and importing them into Photoshop STEP-BY-STEP. I will show how to distort shapes around text using the pen tool in illustrator, or creating everything directly in Photoshop without the use of Illustrator. I will also show you how to use clipping masks and shading to make the flat shapes appear 3D and have a glossy effect to them.

During the course I will show you how to use photoshop actions to make some processes easier. One of the actions shown during the video can be downloaded at the link below:
