About This Class

FREE for one week only! Learn to create two-color, hand-drawn illustrations in Photoshop with award-winning artist Roman Muradov!

Inspired by traditional screen printing techniques, Roman shares how to use simple tools and just two layers to create detailed designs and complex images. Using a fun, creative exercise, you’ll learn how two colors can evolve into surprising, creative work, simply through the use of overlapping shapes.

Key lessons include:

  • Creating complementary colors
  • Selecting brushes and erasers
  • Using Multiply for screen printing effects
  • Drawing by adding and subtracting shapes

Whether you’re new to Photoshop or a seasoned designer, Roman’s approach to achieving handcrafted effects through digital tools will help you stretch your creativity, use Photoshop in new ways, and create work unlike anything you’ve seen before.
