Transcripts

1. Welcome!: Hey there and welcome to this class. In this class, we will learn to illustrate some holiday team things using Adobe Fresco. We will also explore the free app, Adobe Capture and learn how to use it with frescoes, create brushes, shapes, and seamless repeating patterns. I strongly believe in learning by doing. Hence, we will be learning Fresco while illustrating an object are seen. That is, but end of each lesson you will have learned how to use a bunch of tools, and we'll also have a completed illustration. This is why the lessons are not tightened are divided based on tools, but by what we would be drawing in that lesson. First, we'll start by doing a quick lesson about Fresco basics, which is optional by the way, as we will cover these things in the subsequent lessons, a new ID. Next, we will go ahead and draw some cookies and loan to create a seamless pattern using what we have drawn. We will then go ahead and explore how to illustrate using pixel brushes. That is a holiday cards, some stockings, and much more. You might have heard about the awesome live brushes in Adobe Fresco. So we'll be exploring those as well. First, we'll go through the watercolor brushes, and we'll also explore the oil brushes while creating some awesome gift tax. In the end, we'll create a winter scene complete with snow, using the animated feature in Adobe Fresco. There's also a bonus video and a half to get some new free brushes from the Adobe Fresco library. We'll also dig deep into the newest feature of Adobe Fresco, that is animation. I hope you'll join me in learning more about Fresco and Adobe Capture and create something awesome by end of it. See you in the next lesson. 2. Fresco Basics: I will quickly go through some fresco basics. You don't really have to watch this tutorial because I will be covering almost everything in the following videos. But if you're not confident enough about jumping right into illustrating things without even knowing anything about the tool. This video is for you guys. This is going to be a basic, basic version of what Fresco is about and what things are intracellular. So you get a fair idea about how these two looks like or how it works. For absolute beginners. If you have ever used Fresco before, maybe you won't find this interesting. So skip to the next lesson, okay? Okay, So as soon as you open your fresco, this shows up. You might not see these things here because this depends on the things that you use most often. And then under Recent you'll see all your files that you have been using. If you are opening it for the first time, obviously you won't see any of your files here. If you've been using Fresco for a while and you don't see your files in here. You can go into your files and then you see all your files up here, everything. Okay. Fresco also allows you to group things together or be more organized. There was something called as folder. You can create a new folder, give a nice name to it. And you can drag your files into these folders and create really nice folders like this. If you want to learn more about fresco, there are already some really nice tutorial, so you can go ahead and check that out as well. Now you can click on Custom Size here, or you can click on Create New to open any new document. And when you do that, you get so many different options to choose from. And every option comes with a default setting. For example, this is in the landscape more and if you want this to be in portrait mode, just click on this tiny arrow here and switch to baud rate. And then you can just click on it to create that file. Let's go ahead and do that. If you want to name this file, you can do that here by clicking on it and then naming it. And safe. So this is your Fresco screen. One main thing about fresco is there are three different kinds of brushes. The first one is a pixel brushes. Second one is live brushes, which consists of watercolor and oil brushes. Third one is the vector brushes, which is very limited. But this is all you need. By the way, under pixel brushes, you'll see all different kinds of brushes and also the brushes that you've imported or your gotten into Fresco. I have a separate video on how to get more brushes into Fresco. So go ahead and check it out. You erases work the same way. And this is the transform tool which you'll use to transform objects. For example, if I have this and if I use Transform, I can reduce the size, increase, turnaround and things like that and click on Done. This is a fin don't use to fill things. And this is the Lasso tool where you can actually go ahead and select things like this. You also have text option. And then there are shapes which is a little complicated and I will be covering it more in one of the lessons. This is your color palette where you can choose colors and this is where all your recent colors show up. If you click them all, you'll see the color pallets from your creative cloud library. For example, here you'll see all these color palettes. So you might not have anything here right now if you don't have a creative cloud library full of color palettes, in here you'll see layers. Each layer has a tiny icon next to it. This is an image layer. This is a pixel layer, same as this one over here. And if you click on a new layer or if you just use a vector brush, it automatically create a layer with a vector brush. You should always know that the vector and the pixel layers never match. That means they are always on separate layers. You also have an option to share this that is solely to illustrate. So anything which is vector appears as vector in Illustrator. So if you want to take things to illustrate that it's always good to have all your layers in vector, then it's much more easier to work with it. You can also live stream things on Behance. So if you click on this, it automatically connects to Behance. I mean, you should have an account obviously. And then India is messaging. That is, you can collaborate with people. And then each of you can come in on the artwork that you're doing. This is to add collaboration. That is to invite people to edit your document in the settings. This tells you what size your ad bodies, you can actually speak, flip your art board or rotated touch shortcut is nothing but this white thing here, which can be used as an eraser when you click it once. And in vectors it can be used as a rector trimming when the outside script, when it comes to live brushes, you can make it as pure water by clicking, double-clicking on it. So you can turn it off. By turning this off. Onboard prevail is nothing but if you have a line like this, you can't see anything. So if you turn it off, you'll see everything that goes beyond airport in C. Now for vector brushes like that, and if you turn it off, it goes away. In app settings, you have a lot of things that you can set. One of the main things is input. Touch, snap line should be turned on. Not should be. If it is turned on, if you click and hold, it makes it into a way straight line. So in layers here you have some options is to create a new layer. This is to hide any layer, and this is to make it into a clipping mask. And this is nothing but the adjustment layers. Don't worry, we'll be covering everything in future lessons. In here you have more options to work with these layers. This is your animation panel. This is not demon guides. There are more if you click and hold the circles, it's called drawing. It's polygons. If you click Plus, it changes the number of edges. And the works. This is when your layers are hidden. This is levels on layer properties. So you can, if you go into a layer which is a, you have your blend mode and opacity here. This one is more about grids and guides, which we'll talk about again later. And if you click on this one, it makes it to a full screen. We click again. To export your artwork. You can click here and click on Publish and Export. There's a time-lapse export which tells you shows the entire process of your artwork. Can also export as an export it as a different option here. Can also send it to capture as pattern, which may covering them or save it to Behance as a project. I don't usually use Quick Export because it's just a snapshot, not really of good-quality. Click on that. And I guess that's it about basics of Fresco. But trust me, you don't need to remember any of these things. It's okay to forget everything and start fresh with the first lesson. Because once you're finished with this class, you absolutely know what everything is and how everything works without even having to try to remember about. Okay, I'll see you in next lesson. 3. Let's draw a Cookie!: So in this lesson we're going to try and create this stupid, simple and Christmas cookies. So let's just get started. I'm going to go ahead and click on this Create new. So in your under digital, I'm going to click on current screen, but I want it in the landscape format. If you don't see in the landscape format, you can click on this tiny arrow here and you'll get an option to switch to landscape. Let's go ahead and do that. Click on current size. I have a color palette for you guys to go ahead and download it from the Resources tab. And once you have downloaded its image, so it shows up on your iPad or any device that you're using Fresco on. And once you have it on your photos or your album, you just have to bring that image in here. To do that. Click on the images, go ahead and click on photos. And then you see the color palette. Just bring it in. Once it comes here, you can click on this Done. And now let's go ahead and pick these colors. The reason we have to pick these colors is fresco still doesn't support importing color palette so easily. Of course, you can go ahead and import color palettes in your color library. That is, if you go here and click on all Xunzi, all these libraries over here, which I have. This. The way to do this is to go to color dot adobe.com and create a library there. But for this lesson, we are going to do that because it is a bit of a process and we really can we do with this easy method here. So let me just show you what you have to do. So once you have this year, you have to be in one of these three brushes. Doesn't matter which one. Click and hold. To select this color, you get this icon and you see that the color gets selected. And now all you have to do is just scribble on your airport. Again, doesn't matter which brush. What this does is if you go ahead here and click on reasons, you see that the color gets picked up. So let's go ahead and do that for the other colors as well. That is click and hold. Make a mock. This is just black, I guess. Okay? So now you can see that all these colors are here. One thing you should remember is that these colors are temporarily. That means they are here on this canvas. But if you open a new canvas, the colors will go off. It will be reset to empty. Once you've chosen your colors, can go ahead and hide this one. Or you can also delete by click and delete layer. And the color balance is highlighted because we don't know if you need it later. Okay, so let's get to actually illustrating things. So for this lesson, I'm mainly using vector brushes. That is, I'm talking about this brush here. So by the way, this is a pixel brush. These are live brushes which has your watercolor and oil brushes. A lot of your brushes live here by the way. And your vector brush, yeah, so you have a limited set of vector brushes, but I think this is all new mean when it comes to vector illustration, you really don't need a lot of brushes, to be honest. So I'm going to use the basic round. And if you click on this button here, you'll get to go into the settings and we're going to go ahead and change one setting here. That is, I'm going to measure the pressure dynamics is turned off. The reason I'm doing this as it is turned on in click and if you put pressure, it becomes thick and 10. But if you turn it off, it's just a normal line and we want that, okay? I'm just gonna do that and my smoothing is set to 50. To what smoothing means is how easily the brush flows. Like. For example, if I keep it really low and imagine I have shaky hands, It's going to come little shaky, okay? And if I keep it at really high and even if I have shaky hands, you see how smooth the lines. But the only problem with this extreme smoothness is the lag between the actual line and your pencil, which is why we don't want to keep it at the highest possible setting. You can use your two-finger tap to undo things like this. And I'm going to go ahead and always keep it around fifties because I think that's more comfortable for me. So I want you to go ahead and experiment with what is more comfortable to you. But fifties would be a very good number. Next is the size, the auto options to change the size. You can just hold layer and go up and down. And you'll get this nice little bar. Can also click and hold. And then you get a nice little keypad where you can type things out. I'll try to keep it at 20. And once you have selected the number, you can click outside. Can click on a color palette. And let's choose this really light brown that we have. So let's start off with the first one. So go ahead and click on this plus icon here. To create a new layer. You can click and hold and actually choose what kind of leader you want. But it's not absolutely necessary. You can just click on the plus button and creates a layer. And then when you try to draw on it, it automatically detects what kind of brush you're using and creates a allele or based on that. So now we have a vector brush. And therefore, when I tried to draw a line length, does automatically creates a vector brush icon. This is a vector brush icon. This is a pixel brush icon. And this is an image icon so you know exactly what Lee is, what, it's not absolutely necessary to know what layer you're on. Because now when you have a vector, if you tried to draw with the pixel, it'll automatically create a new layer because rector and pixel brushes cannot go on the same layer. That's something you should keep in mind. But that's okay. That's never stopped me from drawing anything. I actually don't bother what layers work because it automatically detects and everyday, only thing is that sometimes you try to draw something on some layer. It turns out to be the black layer. You're using a pixel brush and it'll automatically go to some other pixel layer. So there might be some problems. So just make a note of what layer you're on. So always better to click on a new layer and start your illustration. Coming back to this, let's go ahead and do that. I'm trying to draw, I'll go back to my vector brush, cookie shape. Something like this, but I'm obviously not good at it. That completely this. Obviously a bit like that. We can edit it and make it nicer later. So don't worry. Now let's go to the fill tool. And one thing you should know about the film tool is that the line should be closed if you want the fill tool to work. And even if there's a tiny gap here like this, and if you tried to use the fill tool, it'll fill everything up. You can use your two fingers to undo. And again, undo, undo, undo. So it goes back. And now let's go ahead and fill this in is a lot of lines that I made which was absolutely unnecessary. You don't have to do this. You can just make the simple shape. If you're good at it. You can use your two fingers to zoom like that and colored it up. Let's go back. And now I want to fix these edges. Come back to your brush now and fix it. There's a rock stroke, yeah, so you can click on your eraser tool and then by the way, you do as a tool also has different options, but I'm going to keep it at basic round. If you look closely, you can see that this is the same as the vector brushes. That's because we are on a vector brush. If you're using a pixel brush, the results are completely different. So let's go to the eraser and I'm going to go ahead and delete this off, can obviously change the size, the smoothing and settings, just like any other brush. So that's my base for the cookie. So I'm going to click on a new layer, and now I want to add some shadows to it. So I'm just going to go into my pixel brushes. And if you go in here and click on Basic, you see a brush called soft round opacity. So I'm going to go ahead and click on that. So you might notice a little star next to it and it has highlighted. The reason you do that is if you click on the new brush and if you click on the star here, it automatically show up under Favorites. So this is really good when you have tons and tons of brushes and you have a select few which you really use. So for now, I use the soft drum opacity. So let's just quickly go through the settings now. The second one or four and I just want to check if it's okay. I think it's okay. And the flow is set to 23. Flow is nothing but your transparency of the brush. So you can go high, you can go low. And I'm going to set it at around 20. So when I say some number, like I'm setting setting it to 23, I don't want you to set it to exactly 23. Anything in that range, like 20 to maybe 2007, 2008, It's okay. 20s to Elon plus or minus few numbers are completely okay because sometimes it's really hard to stop that right number. Smoothing is one because I don't really want any kind of smoothing on it. Now let's go to the color and let's choose this really dark brown that I have right here. And now we need to add the shadows. But if I go ahead and try to add shadows, by the way, this is a pixel brush. So automatically you have a pixel, you see that it kind of goes outside, which I'm not liking it because I can't really keep it within the cookie. And what do we do for that? You have an option called as clipping mask that is really helpful in such cases. All you have to do is click on this icon here and you see a little arrow pops up which shows that this is a clipping mask for this particular layer. So now if you try and add some shadow, you see it's not going anywhere out. So the shadow brush also depends a lot on how much pressure you put. So if I put a lot of pressure, you get a little darker shadow. If you don't put pressure, you get a little lighter shadows. I'm just going to increase this a little bit, maybe 135. And I'm going to go ahead and add shadow to the edges of this cookie. I want to give you a really good piece of advice when you're working with digital art is that always make sure you create different layers for everything that you're doing. So one good thing about fresco is like you can use really tons and tons of layers. I'm sure it has a limit, but I don't think it's something that you would read that easily, unlike Procreate by the way, because it does have a limitation. But the first go, you don't have to worry so much about LEA or limiting layers. So go ahead and happily create new layers. And later on, if you really get stuck, you can always merge them, right? But so far, I'm never had to merge layers because I ran out of layers. Fresco has probably unlimited number of layers. I'm not sure about that, but it really has a lot of layers that you can work with. So always create new leaves. So let's go ahead and click on a new layer now. And I wouldn't add some icing to it, right? So I'm just going to go ahead and click on white, because I think it's going to be pretty white. Click on your vector brush again because we're going to go ahead and draw that. And now we want this to be a clipping mask again, because I want the icing to go all the way like this. It's me. And you can rotate it like this or however you want and make this by there. If you want a straight line. Goryeo settings, Gloria App Settings, go to Input, click on touch. And there's option called snap line, make sure it's turned on. And then click and draw and keep holding it until it becomes a straight line like this. So there's one way to actually draw straight line. The other way is to use a ruler that is, click here, and you get a ruler and you can move it around however you want. I'll be using this probably in one of the adolescents and show you in depth how to use the ruler. But for now you can actually do with hand-drawn because who uses a ruler while putting, icing or decorating and cookies, right? So I think it looks very artificial if you have straight line. So I'm just going to freehand this one. And now let me go ahead and draw this out laying there. And you see the clipping mask is making sure that you have everything within this cookie layer. So this is a background. I can hide it. And now you see the white lines are not there at all outside. Just going to unhide that because I, oops, not this one, this one. And go back to your layer. I'm gonna go ahead and make this. I think I'm happy with how my cookie looks arena. So now let's go ahead and add some shadow to the icing or the declaration that we have done. 4. More Cookie Designs: So I want to add the shadow to exactly the same thing, but I'm not going to use the shadow brush for this. Because I have a bad option. That is click and you can click on Duplicate Layer, normally have two of those white layer. So I'm going to go into the layer below that and click. And I'll choose black and go to my fill tool and just click and fill it with black. And you can see that it's black now, but you can't see because there's a white layer on top. I actually haven't filled out these little dots, but if you want, you can go ahead and fill it out. But I'm going to just leave it like that because that's a lot of work and you're not gonna do that, right? Okay, So once you have this, you can click on this icon here. That is nothing but the transform tool. So you get this little transform tool and you have these arrows here. If you don't move it using your brush and undo this. You can also use your transform tool and count the number of steps you use. 12 and 12, okay, that's 33, that's a date click on Done. You can do that so that you have consistency across all the cookies. So it's better to count the number of steps you go beneath. The right. This does not look exactly like shadow, right? So we'll go into levels here and you have something called as Blend Mode. So click on novel and we're gonna go ahead and choose something called as overlay. And they go click on that. You can actually reduce the opacity of this if you want to. We will keep it around sixties and click on this. And there you have your first cookies ready. But it's not completely ready because I want some shadow of the cookie as well. So I'm gonna go into this layer, click on a new layer, make sure you are in the filter and pick this gray color that you have and click and recto will fill it with the vector. You can also fill it with pixel, but it's okay if it's vector. Now come back here and click, and let's duplicate this layer and go to the layer beneath the back of that, whatever you have drawn, make sure you are on Fill tool and let's select back again. Click to color it black. You may not see it, but you see that faint line that actually tells you that you have a black object behind it. Click on Transform. We're going to do the same thing. 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3. I think I need more. This is OK. Click on Done, and then go ahead and do the overlay that we did earlier. And click on Done. And you see there's a faint line, but if you feel like it's too little for the actual cookie, you can go ahead and edit it and make it home over you want and click on Done. And you first cookie is actually very, let me go ahead and change this as well a little bit. Okay, they go. So this is basically the process for doing all the cookies in this illustration. Okay, so once you are done, you can actually go ahead and group the instincts together so that you don't just to reduce clutter. So click on this layer, click and click on select multiple. And I'm going to select everything that forms this particular cookie. And then click on this folder icon here, and it's one little group. And if you click on this, Ibadan is just goes away. Now click on a new layer and let's go ahead and draw the next one. So you want to go back to your tool right here, Goryeo vector brush. And let's go ahead and make a candy cane. To fill it up. Now, click on a new layer, click on clipping mask, and we're going to add some shadows. So dark brown layer, Korea pixel brush, and you're already on software and opacity settings remain like that. So that's a good thing. And I'm going to add a bit of more shadow in here because, you know, inside of it and a little bit shadow outside like that. That means I put more pressure here. And the less the pressure here. Click on new layer clipping mask. Again. Let's go to White, Goryeo vector brush and let's draw some things like this, can actually increase the size of the icing. Maybe 23. Let's see. Oops, undo that data. Dot-dot, dot-dot, dot-dot, dot-dot, dot-dot. Click and Duplicate Layer and go to the layer beneath that fin door. Click on black. So and fill it. Okay, Once you're done, you can click on new tool here and then bring it down a little bit. And then obviously go to your layers and click on overlay. You can actually keep it at that. He had reduced it a little bit. So if you want, you can go ahead and reduce it a little bit as well to about sixties. And then the final one click and duplicate layer, go back here, fill it with black. Use your tool, bring it down a little bit like that. Done, click and go ahead and do it as orally. And then it has a nice little and shadow. You could do MOOC cookies the same way. Now let's go ahead and select all these three. Click, select multiple and select everything that's here. And click on this folder. Know it's a tiny LED thing. So you see it's in the corner here because I think one of the leaders has some Brooks talks over here. Maybe unused eraser, keep it really big and try to draw until still not done. So I'll use the transform tool and I can see, oh, it's all the way up here. Now it's perfect, right? Okay. So let's o to go inside the group, you have to double-click and then you can go inside group and edit it however you want. And click on this arrow here to go back into the main peach, or there's something there as well. So we have to, all right, our is ready. And next one, let's make a snowman. So go back to this one. We're going to use the same process. So round head. And I'm barely okay, and then let's duplicate it and fill it up with black. Can do this before as well. You can click and then bring it up and you click it automatically highlighted so you know how to bring it up, click down. Normally a soft opacity brush, it's a black. And I'm going to add a bit of shadow. Click on new layer down like this white vector brush. And let's go ahead and make you need to reduce this. Obviously here I forgot one thing. We have to do that here as well. Wait a minute, black. Okay, let's go back to this widely. Coherent and draw. And I think it's ready, right? Okay, let's duplicate this layer. Go back to the bottom Lee and chosen color black. So now you have so many different elements here. And take a wind colored everything. Once it's done. This. Oh Willy. And obviously you can reduce the opacity. Kinda the same thing he only then you are done. Okay, so you can go ahead and create many different cookies just like this. You can create something like a Christmas tree or a leaf. You can go ahead and do many, many things and create your own cookie designs as well. So I'm going to leave that to you guys to create to figure out how to do that. I'm sure it's the same process, so it's not going to be that difficult. And once you're done with this, you can actually go back and assess your shadows extra drive you on, for example, in here and go into this and click on the shadow layer and maybe click on the dark brown. I'm in the shadow brush going to add some shadow here as well. And you should know that the shadow layer should be below this icing layer, at least according to me, it's up to you, whatever you feel comfortable, go ahead and do it, okay? Okay, let's go ahead and group these things as well. Click on select multiple, click everything. And now all these three are nice. And now if you want to rearrange these things on your artboard, you have this group ready, so click on Transform and then you can actually go ahead and bring it up, down, resize it the whatever you want. Same thing here. Same thing he wanted and click on, Done. Okay, continue. All right, so once you're done and you want to export this illustration, you can just click on the Share button here. Publish and Export. Don't do a quick export because it's just a snapshot and you want a really high-quality one, okay, so click on publish and export. You can export it as a PNG or anything that you like. There are so many different options here. I like to choose PNG and then click on Export. So you get an option to save image here or send it via a job or whatever device you're using it. Using it depends on the options or that, Okay, and then click on Done. So now if you want to export this without a background or you have to do is go to this layer which has the background and check it again, go to this layer and uncheck it until you see this checkerboard background. And obviously when you do that, this overlay won't work because this was based on the gray layer. Once it's gone, it's just a black color. There's nothing to all Leon's. Obviously, it's going to show its original color. So I can do is you can double-click, go to the black layer and hide it so that it's not visible anymore and come outside and then try to export. So now if I want to export only desk and on these two, I can go ahead and hide these two. And now I can click on Export, Export As, and then show up as this. So you can individually export the PNGs and clean the clip art kind of day with this as well. Okay, so that's it for cookies. But in the next lesson I'll show you how you can actually create a pattern using these cookies in Adobe capture. See in the next lesson. 5. Seamless Repeating Pattern: In this lesson, we're going to use the cookies that we created in our previous lesson and then create a seamless pattern on a repeating pattern out of it. This lesson will be useful in creating pattern out of absolutely anything that you create in Fresco. So make sure you watch this until the end. So you need a different app to actually work with patterns, and that is called Adobe Capture. It's a free app, so go ahead and download it. I'll leave a link to this app in the resources section. So go ahead and check it out from there as well. So now let's go ahead and open fresco and open the file that we created in the previous tutorial. Let me just click on that. I'm going to go ahead and open the file that I created before, where I have two extra elements. So let me do that. Okay, So this is my file with my two extra elements that you can see right here. It's not necessary that you need five elements for this. You can work with even three, but I can show you some extra things. If I have more than four elements. I know it's a little confusing, but I'll come to that later. All right, so basically what I'm going to do now is go outside and click on these three dots here and click on Duplicate. I don't want to edit my original artwork because it has all the layers and I'm planning to merge things. And that's why I need a different file. And the two, I'm going to go ahead and duplicate it. Now, open the file that you have duplicated. And we're going to go ahead and merge these layers. Like for snowman, we have so many layers, which is 11 layer. But since we haven't overlay here, Let's go here and here and click on this icon and uncheck it. Because as we saw in the previous lesson, if we remove the background and it just shows up as black, and we don't want that. And go back here. Now click and click on Merge layers in the group. Let's go ahead and do the same thing for the other things as well. That is double-click, click on the black layer, uncheck, go back modulus in the group. So now that you have that ready, you have to make sure that you have only the layers which you need for the pattern as visible. That is, if you have some things like this, for example, carob or something, make sure to hide that. So I have this layer here with this image. I don't know what that is. I'm going to hide that. And I'm going to hide the background layer as well. And I'm going to hide this grid layer as well. And I just have things like this and you don't need to arrange anything here. You can do all of that in capture itself. So click on the Share button and click on Publish and Export. At here you see an option called us capture pattern, and let's click on that. This will automatically open things in Adobe capture, because when capture was open, so you just switch to that app and gave you this particular window. So here you'll see all the layers. That's the different layers that were there. If you had a merge these layers than they would come, each element would come up as a separate layer and that's online. You can work with it, right? So that's why you need to merge the layers. And now that you have all the layers much, you just have to click here and select everything that you want in your pattern. You have an option here to unselect things if you feel like it doesn't suit you or something, okay? And once you're done selecting, click on this Done. Now it brings you to the pattern-making page. So India you a few things. This is shapes where all your shapes, which are like you know, which you import it is listed. This is color which you're not going to use in this because we already have color on our elements. If it was black like completely black, then you can use this option to change the color of the individual element. Or if it was one single color, you could use it to change the color of the element in your layers. So it's nothing but the things that you see on the screen which is bright. That is, there are four of these. So 1234, There's just two of these, so 12 and then two of the Christmas tree and there's one of snowman. We'll come to that later. Let's go ahead and look at these levels right here. So in here you have this option to choose any kind of shape that you want. Square would be obviously like this. You can see the pink line, economists to something else as well. And then it'll show you a much better way on you. And you see that things changed if you go to Levels here, the Lord most Norman's now, right? So yeah, it depends on how you kind of choose your sheep. So there are two options here called free form grid and snap to grid. Snap to grid as it sits exactly at the grid points. I call it supposed to sit on the ship provided if you click on free from, it just goes haywire and goes everywhere. But that's okay because we want to choose free form green because I want to kind of move things and arrange a pattern so that I want the pattern to be on my own terms. And then you have this background color. You can click on the Background Color, click on background color here, and choose some color that you want. You can actually, this is sometimes a bit slow because maybe captures pretty still under development or something. But you can try to make it grayish like that. And then you can click back here. So now let's go ahead and arrange these items, right? Go to your layers. And now if we click, you can see that it's selecting. So if you want to select certain things, for example, I want this snowflake. I'm going to go ahead and click. And then I can choose this to reduce the size. You can use this to rotate it however you want and increase it and move it. And I'm going to place it there. And once you're done, you can choose something else. Let's choose this and then rotate it a little bit and move it up he the Christmas tree. And maybe he lets choose to snowman and make him a bit like that. And when you want to check your pattern, you just can click on this icon here and it'll show you your pattern. See this how it looks like right now. And you can click on Save to save it or go back here. I'm going to cancel this. I'm going to go back here. And once you feel you're done, you just click on the empty space. Yeah, then it comes up. Now if you want to add some extra elements because I don't see that leaf that we created, right? So I'm gonna go here and click until it gets selected and drag. You can see that plus sign. So just added. Click on that leaf and you can edit it however you want and make it tiny little leaf if you want. Let's go ahead and add this somewhere here in the gap. That looks good. Then you can go to Layers and you see that here. You have three of them. Click and if you feel like you do on that, you can always deleted off. So it's an option as well. And now I think I need some more of that. So I'm going to go here again, click and bring it here. Click, and it's going to come in, it's original size, edited, move it up here, and then, okay, let's look at it. That looks fine, okay? Once you're happy with how your pattern has done, not only have to do is click on Save. It takes a while as well. And then you can name your pattern however you want. Cookie pattern done. And then you can save to one of your Cloud libraries. So since you will be logged onto your Adobe account, you'll have access to all your libraries, Creative Cloud libraries. So you can actually click on Change and create your own library here as well. Or it can just save to print me some color, doesn't matter. I mean, saved to your own. Whatever default is here, and click on save. And once it's saved, you can click on it and then you'll see your pattern ready. But wait a minute, that's great. You have the pattern, but what do we do with it, right? So I'm just going to click on this to go back here. So there are a lot of options that you have with the patterns. One is you can click and you can obviously edited, that is go back to edit more and do all that. You can export it as a pattern tile. And this is what is really important. A pattern tile is basically a block of the pattern which you can upload to any application that will make a pattern out of it. That is, if you please, two of these blocks right next to each other, it will create a seamless pattern. So that is a pattern tile. And it's really helpful when you want to upload to sites like Spoonflower and things like that. So it's already good way to export this one. And then obviously you can save it to Files, anything like that. The other option is exported as an SVG. You can use that as well. Now if you click on this, and now again in here you have a lot of options, right? One, what is this? If you click on this and show you, you can reuse the same thing as a lot of other things. You can use it as a new shape, new type, color grading. There's so many different things that you could do with it. But we're not going to go into that because that is normally you're going to, okay, this is the edit button. You can go back and edit it. This is just to share it into Photoshop or Illustrator, awaken, refine it, or tune it if you want to do anything. That last one is shared. And obviously you can share it as a pattern link or export as pattern tile and SVG, which we already discussed. And the third one is to save to camera roll. And then it saves it as an image. That is, if you go into photos and even seen there's a very nice image creator of your pattern. So that's basically how you use the Adobe Capture in conjunction with frescoes, or that you can create elements in Fresco and use it to create patterns in Adobe Capture. I hope you create really nice patterns out of the cookies that we did right now, go ahead and experiment with your own layout, your own settings, and you can see how it turns on. You can use this as a wrapping paper as well. And I think it looks pretty cute, doesn't it? Okay, I'll see you in the next lesson then. 6. Holiday Card with Pixel Brushes: In this lesson, we're going to go ahead and draw a holiday card using the pixel brushes in Adobe Fresco. Okay, Let's just start. Okay. I'm going to click on create new. So in here I'm going to print and I want to use the small postcard. But I'm going to click here and make sure it's in the landscape format. And once you have that, click on it. So I have a sketch and a color palette for you guys. So go ahead and downloaded from the resources section, and once you have it, Let's go ahead and bring it in. So I'm going to show you how I went about and did the sketch. So let's call them bringing the color palette for us. Now let's click on a new layer and go ahead and draw our sketch. Go to your images and bringing your sketch as well. So click on photos and bringing your sketch, click on Done. And once you're here, make sure you go into the levels. Click and click on Multiply. That's because the sketch has a white background and if you try drawing anything below it, it won't show up. But using a multiply blend mode will make sure that you can see it or make it look like it's us. Sketch without a background and then reduce the opacity to as low as you want. So let me go ahead and show you how I actually did the sketch so that there's this uniformity between these two. Right? Now for sketching, I actually use this dry media and then rough pencil. Now to begin, I first made the banner. The banner. Now it's time to make these elements. And then I want the same thing over here as well. So I'm going to click on a new layer. That's really important. And then I'm going to go ahead and sketch this out. Some roughly doing things. Because the whole point of this part is not to show you how to sketch, but rather to show you, you can go ahead and sketch on in one part of it and then make your life easier by using the transform tool. And now what I'm going to do is click Duplicate Layer. And I'm going to hide this sketch just like that. Again, go back to this layer which you have duplicated right now. And now click on Transform tool, linear. You'll see horizontal and vertical reflects. So you're just going to click on that and then click on that again so that it gets reflected like this. And then you'll just move this down so that it comes and settles nicely. Click on Done. And now you have equal or perfectly reflecting the urine. Have to draw this all over again. So while, even when painting you can do the same thing. You can paint only one side of it and then reflect it so that it comes and sits on this side. That's exactly what we're gonna do in this lesson. So I'm going to uncheck this by clicking on this eye and go back to my sketch and have this ready. Okay, So let's start illustrating then. Click on a new layer. And it's really important that you are doing everything on a new layer. Let's go to one of the brushes that we have. Yeah, that is a mockers and I'm going to use the marker brush for this. And let's go ahead and choose the light yellow that we have. And we're going to go ahead and mark this. And I want to increase the size to maybe about 15. It little more. I'm going to undo using my two-finger tap. This should be okay. My marker is set to 67. If you wanted to increase the flow to about 83, this makes it more opaque. And that's pretty good. But I don't want it completely opaque, right? I want some color to show through, so it should be nice. And your smoothing is at 50. That's okay. And I'm gonna go ahead and color this up like this. And you see since your brushes so big, it's really hard to maintain that nice, crisp edge. If I uncheck the sketch, you can see that It's not that crisp, right? So what we can do is we can reuse it and maybe make the outline like that. And then this point, I'm going to increase this a little bit. Okay, that looks good. And now let me uncheck the sketch and take a look, and let's go ahead and edit it a little bit. Maybe make it fully Little. Going to go ahead and make sure the lines are nice and straight. Ok, and you can fill in some color in here as well. Okay, That looks good. Bring back the sketch it. Now I'm going to go ahead and create a new layer. So this layer should be below this yellow layer and choose this darker yellow that we have. That is, if you click on this hedges be slider, it shows you the hue saturation brightness numbers so that you know which color I'm picking up, okay? And since colors are very differently, I don't have to do it for every color. But if I was using a color palette with similar sheets or shades of a similar color, I might have had to actually show you all the hues and saturation numbers, but I don't have to do that here. So in here, I'm on a new layer and I'm going to go ahead and color this off like this. And if you want, you can just do a bit like that. All right, that's good. Now let's go ahead and illustrate the elements. So if you want, you can group these two together so that you know, they're always together and you can uncheck them at anytime. That's okay if you don't want to click on a new layer, and now let's start illustrating this part right here. Okay, I'm gonna go ahead and do the leaves first. So click. And I'll choose this dark brownish gray that I have and my marker brush. I'm going to reduce it a little bit because I think thinner, so it should be easier to draw with the smaller brush. Let's go ahead and draw some leaves shortly. Just pick some leaves that you want in the background and just color them up. We'll bring this layer on top, so don't worry about that. Because that's enough. And now click on a new layer. Like I told you, everything in new layer. And let's go ahead and click on this lighter grayish or lighter grayish, brownish thing and then make the rest of the leaves. Okay, that looks good as well. Now I'm going to click on a new layer and I wouldn't have the lines to the leaves, right? So I'll go ahead and click on this color, which is like really light gray. And I'm going to go ahead and change my brush and I want it to be dry media. And in the rough pencil, my rough pencil is set to 27. There's a number you can change if you want to. And I'm going to go ahead and add a bit of lines like this to everything. Okay, Let's uncheck the sketch. Okay, that's coming through, that's good. Let's check back in and now click on a new layer. And we're going to make these little circles or whatever we have. And let's go back to the marker brush now. Marker brush, click. And let's choose this really dark red and pick a few of them for really dark color. And don't worry, it's coming on top of this. We're going to move these layers later on, Okay, and click and choose the next red color that you have. And let me this here as well. And next layer and choose the lightest one that you have. And make this here as well. That's cool. And now let's go ahead and go back to the layer below this, go to the layer below and click on a new layer so that you have this layer below all of these three berries. And now let's go ahead and choose some color. I want to choose this dark brown that we used for this leaf right here. I think that looks good. And you can choose any brush that you want. I'm going to go into my brushes and I'm going to show you one of my favorite brushes. That is, if you going to ink, you'll see something called Belgian Comics. It's one of my favorite brushes. It set to 132. That's a very good number. The flow is at a 100, smoothing is at 0 or 1, which is the lowest. And I'm not gonna put any pressure. And I'm going to go ahead and draw this like that. I really, really loved this brush because it's one of them. Beautiful, beautiful brushes out here. Okay. So once you have all that, now let's go ahead and group these things together. So you have this click and select multiple and group the berries together and click on folder. So then altogether, nope, group these things together. So click select multiple and select these three and do them together. So you can uncheck this and see if they are grouped together. Okay, everything looks good. I'm going to uncheck does sketch just to make sure that I have created something that I want, right? Like everything looks neat and nice. Now I want these two to be below this banner layers. I'm going to go ahead and move this below, this one below as well, and now move it below the leaf layer so that this stock comes up. Okay? Alright, that looks good. And I'm going to go ahead and click and select multiple and select distinct at the berries and the leaves and make it into one single collection. Because now I can use the transform tool to actually transform it, right? So I'll bring back the sketch in case I wanted as a guide and go to the layer which has these things. Click and duplicate layer group. Like you can duplicate a layer, you can duplicate layer group as well. Now click and then let's click on Transform, tune. Then flip on, flip over and bring it and place it so that it sits here nice and snug. And once you're done, click on done. And obviously it says it's going to cut off a few things because appear, Oh, wait, I should go a little bit down like that and I'll click on done, and it's done. Now let's hide the sketch and you see that your artwork has reflected as well, right? That's wonderful. Now let's go ahead and add some background to this that go all the way down to the bottom. Most layer can actually go here itself, but it's always good to go the bottom most layer when you're adding a background, click on a new layer. Let's go ahead and select a color. For this. I'm going to choose this color that is 0000, 45. Click on your fill tool, click and click on vector and give it a vector field. Okay, so that's cool. And now click on a new layer and we're going to add some details to it. So I'm gonna go here and select this 196, 46, and 35. And non, go back to your pixel brushes and let's choose. And I wasn't a rough pencil actually, so I'll go to dry media and rough pencil. I'm going to draw some random leaves in here. So something like this. Don't worry, they look all dark and things, but we're gonna go ahead and modify that with some blend tool or blend more effect. Okay? Once you're happy with your leaves that you have drawn, you can go into the lemons here. Click and let's make the screen so that changes color right there. And you can actually reduce this if you want to have a very nice background as well. So, okay, so now it's time to write some text and go to the topmost layer. And you can choose any color that you want and choose black. I'm using the same pencil, rough pencil. You can use whatever you want and I'm going to write warm wishes. So that's it. Once you're ready, you can click on this Export button, new Publish and Export. Export As, and you can export it as a PNG or JPEG or PDF or whatever suits your needs. And then that's how you create this. Christmas God. Okay, I'll see you in the next video to create something more fun with fresco. 7. Shapes with Adobe Capture: In this lesson, we're going to go ahead and create some wrapping paper on battlegrounds using Adobe Fresco and Adobe Capture will be learning mainly about the Shapes feature in Adobe Capture. We're going to learn to create shapes using your artwork in Fresco and also using images. So let's go ahead and check that out. I'll click on Create New. You can create a new file of any size that you want. So I'm just going to go into digital and click on current screen size. I'm going to go ahead and click on my vector brush. That is a wisdom basic ground. And remember, we actually change the pressure dynamics so that it is of uniform width. I'll keep it around 20s. And I'll try to go ahead and draw a snowflake, draw a line. So let's go ahead and make this into a part of Snowflake. The whole idea behind this is to draw one strand or one thing and then repeated around so that it looks like a snowflake. Okay. And maybe like this. And I'm going to go ahead and draw a couple of them. He couple of them he and I think it should be good. I'm not sure. So let's go ahead and duplicate this and click on the transform tool. And then you can turn this around. Until for me, I think 45 degrees that you see in the center works good. So in order to see that all the snapping to happen, you have to click on your grid and India turn on rotation snapping and make sure you select 45 degrees. Now click and duplicate again, transform. And let's go ahead and do it like this. So this should be 90 degrees and click on Done, click on new layer and draw a line. Can actually duplicated as well, but I'm just going to go ahead and draw it. So if you want, you can go ahead and merge these layers. That is click and select multiple, and select all these things and click again and click on Merge selected so that everything becomes one. Now let's go ahead and put this in Adobe capture and create a shape out of it. What I mean is it'll be available to us here when you click and your shape will show up here. And now to do that, go to your layer below that is your background layer and uncheck that. We don't want them. Click on Share, click on Publish and Export, Export as PNG. And we're going to go ahead and save it. You don't have to rename the file by the way, and just export it. Save the image on this device, any device that has captured, just save it. Okay, Let's go ahead and open capture. Okay. So when you open captured, if this is the page that comes up, you can always click on Plus icon here to create this. Or you can also go into this image icon, camera icon, and then it comes here. Alright, so let's click on this image here and bringing that snowflake that we just created. Okay, So India instead of patterns, scroll down and go into ships. As soon as you do that, you see this option here. So this year is for black and white and color. It doesn't work on this artwork. I'll show you in the next one. Meter does work. This is negative. That is, it inwards. You want to darken this one, kind of edit. If there are extra dots and stuff, it kind of gets rid of it. So if you want, you can use that as well. And this one is to put a lot of different effects on the snowflake, like brightness, make it more and see how it changed. You can uncheck that. And then obviously there are so many options to choose from. Wow, it's crystal, so many of them. So go ahead and experiment with that if you want. And since I don't want to do any modifications, I'm going to just stick with original and click on Done. So now you have few more of editing options that is erased tube. That is, you can adjust the size here and erase things off. If you don't want it, you can undo it here. Let's click on Cancel. The same thing applies to brush as well. You can do add few more things. And then obviously let's go to crop. So you can crop this to make it smaller. And then smoothing. Smoothing is one of my favorite things to do with the sheets feature. That is, this is off now. And if you click it on, sometimes it takes time depending on your artwork. It kind of smooths out everything and creates this unique looking shape for you. And I think I like it, so I'm just going to click on save. This brings us to this window where it lets you choose the creative cloud library that you want to save this shape into. So for me it's going to save into premium colors. That is, that's the Creative Cloud library that I've created for me and I save all my shapes in there. So the way you're going to access the shapes in Fresco is through this creative Cloud libraries. So make sure you save it in a very nice place so that you remember. If you don't have anything here, you can click on Change and then click on plus here to create a new library. Or if you have libraries, you can go ahead and select something here as well. Gone down. You can rename it if you want. I'm not going to. One thing you see here is it gives some alternatives to, to save along with the shape. You don't see much here, especially colored in because we're only using image. But if you're using an image, you'll see the color theme of that particular image as well. If you want to save any of this, for example, this panel and just click on this before saving, I'm going to uncheck that because I don't really need it. Okay? Now click on Save. Once it saved, it shows up here in your assets. That is all assets. You can go to ships and then you're going to see it as well. Now let's go ahead and open up Fresco. Let's click on shapes. And then you see this library that you have created that is print me some color. I'm going to go inside that. And now you see the shape. I just have to warn you that it doesn't automatically or immediately reflect. It sometimes takes time, sometimes closing all the apps and reopening it works. So have a little bit of patients already can see it here. Okay, Now let me go back to this level here with the snowflake on chicken and click on a new layer. And now I'm going to click on the fill tool and select some color, is going to go ahead and place this outer ring. By the way, this outer ring is to choose which color you want. Like the main color, that is the red and India, you can choose a different sheets of it. Okay. I'm going to keep it bright red or no, let me keep it blue. Why not right? And click and click. And let's make a vector field. Now click on a new layer, and now let's change this to me, be white and let's go to shapes. And you see it comes up, click and hold. And then it'll take you to this library. Can click on this here and then go click on your shape and your sheep comes up, you can increase the size or decrease it or twisted. You can do whatever you want. By the way, I'm going to move it a little bit here. And now you have an option called Film. And since you have selected that color, I'm going to just fill it with vector. You can move it again now over here somewhere, and then fill again. And let's go ahead and make some snowflakes are pure. Reduce the size because you can't make everything the same size ray. And you can reduce it even more. And always use this carnivals and not these ones because they did not list to use the corner ones do increase or decrease the size. I think we're done with that. Let me go ahead and change the color here a little bit. I wanted blue, but I wanted a little lighter blue. So that's a bit nice and colorful. So yeah, that's basically how you can actually change. But wait a minute, we're not done yet. You can actually use a lot of blend modes to change these things as well. So instead of white, I could have chosen some other color and used blend modes like screen or something like that, the change as well. So make sure to use different colors and white doesn't work much here, but use different colors and experiment with the blend modes here and see if you can create something nice in Munich. Okay, So VR done yet, we are going to go ahead and experiment a little bit more with the shapes. But before that, I just wanted to show you that you can click and hold here, go back here. And you see this plus button here. Just click on that and discover new sheets. So Adobe has three sets of shapes for you. I don't know if it's available on the free version and then you can actually click on Follow. It says unfollow because I've been following it. And once you're done, you can see that it shows up here as comics floral. There's a little shed bottom here. That means that you are following that. Ok. And there are some really interesting shapes which are going to use later on and show you how to use them in creating something that isn't unique. Okay, that's it. And now let's go ahead and explore shapes when it comes to images. So I have an image for you. I got it from Unsplash from our very talented photographer. It's free for use, so go ahead and download it. I have provided the link to do that in the resources section, so just downloaded. So the image looks something like this and we're going to use this. Okay, Let's open up capture. Click on the image here, go to images and bring that in. So when you bring it in, this is how it looks like. And let's go ahead and explore some of these features right here. So if you click on this here, now you have an option called a scholar and it gives you the column version of it. So you can use this as a shape as well. Basically like for patterns and things like that, you can actually use this colored Washington, but I want shapes, so I'm not going to use that. And next you have something called as. So let me go back to black and white. And you can invert this, and I'm going to invert this. And then you see these levels here. So you can increase this to make it darker, decreases. So I'm going to increase this to make it as dark as I can. Okay? And let's put the magic one to auto clean a little bit. And obviously in here you can add some special effects if you want to. This autocrine need is highlight. Normally, I don't want anything, I'm just going to keep it in the original format and click on Next. And obviously if you want, you can smooth crop or do whatever you want, but I'm going to keep it as it is and click on Save. And I'm going to save it onto the same library that is premise. And look at this, use, get the color scheme and the gradient and the pattern as well from the old original image. Okay, Click on Save. Now let's go and check it on Fresco. I'm going to uncheck the snowflake layer. By clicking on this, I now click on a new layer. Let's go and click on shapes. And let's go ahead and go into Print me some column. So by the way, the one that I created hasn't shown up yet. So I'm going to click on the one that I created previously. And you can see it over here. So since we had made the shapes smaller, it has come a smaller, but it's okay, let's go ahead and increase the size. One thing you should notice it, it is a vector shapes, so it's pretty cool, isn't it? Now you can go ahead and choose some really light color. You can just fill and fill vector. Now you want to get out of shapes, click on some brush, and there you have this really nice sheep. Or here can actually go ahead and experiment with this leg, multiply, darken, overlay or screen and things like that. Let's do multiply. And I think I like it and I'm going to bring back in the snowflake as well, but I'll bring the snowflake all the way up. And now you have a really nice wrapping paper or a background created all of shapes by using shapes in Adobe capture. So make sure you create some and create your own snowflakes and you can make any shape that you want. It need not be snowflakes. It could be a Christmas tree, it could be a snowman, it could be any kids, it could be anything. So go ahead and experiment with this a little bit. And hopefully you can create something exciting and fun. And do go ahead and experiment with the image option because it could create awesome textures and show you one more texture that I have. That's again from one of the leaves fall layers, by the way, I'm going to go ahead and hide the layer with the leaf. And if I go in here, I have one more, that is this one. And for vector, and let's click on brush and you see that beautiful, beautiful texture. You can use some holiday pinned image and maybe dial commodities as well. Okay? Okay, So let's go ahead and check out our next lesson. 8. Draw an Animated Tree: In this lesson, we're going to learn how to create a super-simple animated Christmas tree in Adobe Fresco. Lets us get started. Among click on Create New. You can choose any fences that you want. It really doesn't matter, but separate looks really nice on the screen. I'm going to use the current screen size under digital. So animation has many aspects to it. So first of all, it has the tree which is going to be constant. It's not going to change during the animation makes the law lights, which are obviously going to change. Then there's a firefly which actually moves around the screen and also lights up and then switches itself off or whatever that is. And then you have text, which is optional by the way, you can choose not to habit which kind of appears on the screen. So these are the different aspects. And animation in Fresco is also known as motion. That mainly refers to the option that we're going to use for the firefly. I'll come to it later. So each thing which I described here is animated in a different way. So let's go ahead and do that. So once you've finished watching this tutorial, you will have a basic understanding of how animation of motion works in Fresco. So you can use any brush that you want for this lesson. It really doesn't matter, but let me just go ahead and click on my pixel brushes and you can go into dry media. Maybe let's choose the hard piston. So there's gonna be a color palette for you guys. So go ahead and downloaded from the resources section. I have already downloaded it, so I'm going to bring it in here. So click on the images, photos and bring it in. I'll go into the blank layer. If you don't have it, click on plus sign to create a blank layer. So it's time to draw a tree. But as you know, this heart based on the brush, it has a very rough edge, right? So we don't get the exact roots of that we want. So let's go ahead and use the selection tool here to create some unique effects or to get like really crispy edges. So this method will work perfect for any brush that has very rough edges. It will work for your live brushes as well, especially watercolor brushes, because you can't really control the edges with a watercolor brush. So that would be perfect for watercolor brush as well. Now, click on your selection tool here. Click and make sure you are on this option here and not one of these options, okay? And just click on them. And now we're going to draw a shape of a tree. So make sure there's some space up here and some speeds below. So your shape is going to be a rectangle or a triangle, a basic triangle like this. So depending on the setting that you have set for your selection tool, you can say that this, this is called as marching ends. Or if you click on More and click on selection overlay, you can see this option as well. So if you have some artwork in the background and if you think this overlays kind of hindering it, like you can see, it's really when you're trying to draw, select the marching ends option. But if you use the marching ants option, and if there's so many things cluttered o'clock behind, you won't be able to see the selection. So this really depends on your preference, like how you want the selection don't look like, but it's just a preference. Using overlay or marching ends does not matter. They both give the same results by the way. So you can use this or you can also use marching ants. So I'm just going to undo it because I don't like them three that I drew right now. So I'm just going to make sure I tried very nice. Slow can buy the band, lift your pencil up and then go back and join and come back as well. And always make sure to join this. If it doesn't, you can immediately ask you if you were to close the lasso. This is the Lasso tool or the selection tool. And now we have your tree ready. I'm going to just make it selection only so that you guys can see it. You have different options here when it comes to the selection tool which we are not going to use. But I'm just going to quickly tell you what these are in, what selection is nothing but it's going to select everything else except the area that you have drawn. This works well. Like I said, when you're working with watercolor brushes, because the notorious for making it really hard to control the edges. So use them with watercolor brushes all the time. It's amazing. I would highly recommend. Let's go and do in one. There's also transform selection. You can just increase the size or decrease the size of the selection that you have already done. Click on Done. I mean, when you click on Transform, you also get vertical and horizontal flips and things like that. We don't want it. Let's go here. And yeah, we have everything done. Okay, so once you have this, you'll go back to your brush. And now I'm going to go ahead and choose a green. So I think I'll choose this green that is 90, 365. And I'm just going to go ahead and draw like this. If you want to read in some texture, I would highly recommend leaving this texture behind like this. And because I want my tree to look a little more nicer, I'm going to go ahead and. Choose a little dark green at 109, 75, and 43. Click on a new layer here. And I'm going to add a bit of texture like this. And I don't want it so dark, right? It doesn't look. So let's go into levels here, and we're gonna go ahead and edit the blend more of it. So here you have so many different options. Like you can do multiply, you can do screen which enlightened, very nice. I love it. There's overlay which will document and give it a little bit of texture like that. And I think I'm going to go stick to Oberlin. Okay. I don't know if you can see on the screen, but there's little bit of darkness happening here. And this really depends on the color that you choose. If you have something really black, you see it comes really, really dark. So make sure you're choosing a nicer color to get nicer effects. All right, so that's done. And now I want to go ahead and click on another layer. I'm going to go ahead and click on the dark green that I just used. So let's click here. Usually the colors appear in the order that you used. So this is the color that I recently used, so it's going to be up here. Let's go back to the brushes. And I definitely don't want to use the heart paste them anymore. Let's go into rough pencils. Oh, by the way, the heartbeat is the setting for that, is anything that you want. It really doesn't matter. All of these are default setting, that is the flow and smoothing was a default on the size was at 175. It really doesn't matter. Like I said, it's just coloring it. So going back to brushes, let me go ahead and click on rough pencil. And yes, this looks good. Now I'm going to go ahead and make some lines across. So this is where my lights are going to show up. So like this, like that, like this, like that and like this maybe, okay, I think that's enough of liters of lights. Once you're done, you can do de-select and you're done. You see all these things are on a different layer. And we are not using clipping mask. But because we had a selection on, it acts like a clipping mask, but not exactly clipping mask. Now you might ask me like, why didn't you just use clipping mask? So the reason for that is my bottom most layer, that this layer is highly textured. So if I use a clipping mask on that limited show you this, it will just draw on the darker gray. It will not draw on the whites. So it will be again textured. I don't want these lines to be textured. I wanted to have its own texture, brush texture, texture the shop. So I don't use clipping mask. That's as simple as that. So this is when your selection tool can be really, really helpful when you don't want to use Clipping Mask or on some highly textured element. Okay, so let's move ahead now and let's make the base of the tree. So for that you have to come back to the bottom most layer, click on a new layer. And again, you can be on any brush that you want if you want to be on the harpist on Soviet. But let's use the Selection tool for that. So my tree is going to be like this. It'll have a biz apps. I'm going to undo two-finger tab. I'm going to redo that, go here. Make like this and like that and close the loop so that it's closed. Go here and obviously we want to brown, I'm going to bring this back, okay, there's a brown here. And let me go ahead and add it and deselect. Your tree has a base as well. Now, this is going to be a rough, rough version of it. So you're all here to draw a perfect tree with perfect stuff is going to be some fun illustration. So feel free to just draw whatever you feel comfortable about it. So now it's time to make these beautiful lights which are going to slowly appeal on the tree. So now these things are nothing but the tree. I just want to group them because it's nice to be organized. Click, select multiple, click, click, click, click on folder. Now they're all in one group so you can hide and unhide if you want to click on a new layer, Let's go ahead and start choosing colors. I'm going to go ahead and start with dread. Let's go to brushes now. I'm going to go into ink and Belgian comics. But before we begin anything, we have to go ahead and select our animation panel on Motion panel, which is right here. If you don't see this, go ahead and update your Fresco. So you see this icon, just click on that. So motion or animation infrastructure works a different way. So each animation frame is not going to be a separate layer, is just going to be one layer. So when you open this, you will get this particular screen. It says one of one, that is this the first frame? And there are only one frame so far, if you click on one more NC2 of tool, if you go to the first 11 of two. So this shows you which screen you're exactly on going to undo. Undo works for this as well. So let's start. As I have selected red and I have my Belgian Comics brush. It's set to fight with the nine, which is too much, maybe 60 to two little me be 94. Okay. This looks good. Rainfall is good. So I'm gonna go ahead and make a light like this, right? But I want other colors as well. So I'm gonna go ahead and choose some colors, like I have some, oops, I did that by mistake. So go ahead and add a bit and color, maybe an pit here as well, maybe some pings. Now let's go ahead and make the next layer. So what happens in the next one is that these lights are going to be turned on and then the next row appears as well. So what you can do is you can click and click on duplicate frame. So what this does is it also creates the same thing in the next one. So this option is formed by new want to retain the previous frame. And if you don't want this previous frame, you can just click on this plus and you'll get a blank frame. Now, I'm going to go ahead and draw the same thing over here. And now I want this screen to duplicate again. So click and then duplicate frame. And now let's go ahead and draw some more. And then duplicate this again and again. And one more. That's it. So let's play this now. Obviously, I know you're dying to play this thing now. So click on, Play on. And you can see it's lighting up, but it's so fast, right? We don't want it so far. So positive. Gloria settings and you see something called as frames per seconds. So it set to 15. 15 is too much for us. We have six frames and it's too much. I usually keep it at three or four. And it depends on your artwork. Like if you have a lot of frames than 15 works, otherwise three or four is like the best thing. Next comes new movements. It's going to play back and forth again and again. Next is Boomerang that it is going to go and then come back and then play once. It's just play once and finishing our for loop is the best one. Let's skip this onion skin and document timeline for now. I'll come to it when you're drawing the 55. One thing you should notice is the number of frames and that's number 6. So an important thing in Fresco animation is this frame numbers. Any animation that you're going to draw in this particular file should be multiples of six. It can be like two or three because three into two is six or two into three is six. So that works as well, but it basically you should have something which is six. You can have another animation which has like seven frames. That's going to be super difficult to actually work. It won't work well. It will work, but it won't work where they'll be some glitches or you'll see that some things don't play completely. So you'll know when you experiment with it. So go ahead and make some odd number of frames and see how that works. 9. Using Paths in Animation: Okay, So this is the frame now when you play all it plays like this. So I have one problem now. So the first frame, it's always like this, so I don't want that. I want the tree to start empty without any light. So I'm going to click on a new layer or the new frame, which is the empty frame. I'm going to hold it so that it highlights and bring it to the front. Now, the tree starts without any lights and goes all the way up, and then that happens. And in the end, I want all the lights to go off as well. So I'm going to click and make a blank thing like this and maybe make it shine once again. Okay, So go to the previous frame, click and duplicate frame, and let's bring this outside. So now this is full. There's a blank frame and then LED lights up again. Let's see how it works. That's perfect. Now you can pause this and know it has nine frames. If you want. Guess what? I'll add one more and make it blank. The only reason I did that is so that it's 10. Easy for me to control my other animation in this alkyne. So now let's just keep a closer eye at the animation that we are done. You have so many different frames here. But you see there's only one, right? There's only one for the tree. If you go up here, the ninth one. Since there's only one, if I hide this, all animation gets hidden. So that's pretty convenient. So you don't have so many layers for one single animation, you have only one layer. But there are all these frames here, which is I think a super brilliant way to design animation in any of these apps. So now let's go ahead and do the fireflies. So click on a new layer here. So every animation should be on a new layer. Obviously. I mean, you can make it inside the same layer, but it's going to get complicated. Why make it complicated? And when you can make it really, really easy. So let's go ahead and draw the firefly. I'm going to go into my Belgian Comics brush. Let's go and choose some black draw anywhere you want. It doesn't matter. I'm going to go ahead and draw a black body. I think something like this. And then I'm going to choose this green. And I'm going to draw like this and maybe go back to black and make a head. Wait a minute. Okay, if you feel like this is too big of a brush, go ahead and back. Looks cool. Now click on Transform tool and doesn't matter, have you have drawn your five-line, make sure you make it in this direction. Okay, click on Done. So your fireflies should be facing up like this. That is going to be my first screen. Now click on a new layer on new frame here. And you see something, it says two of ten. Where does it say too often we don't have ten frames here. That's because this document, the maximum number of frames in this document is actually 10. That is for this Christmas tree. So you can add to keep it at two, or you can keep it 10 frames or, you know, file, things like that. So now I'm going to click on too, but hey, wait a minute, I don't see my five layered or how am I supposed to draw this thing? So go to your settings and these were onion skin comes click on onion skin. So then you have some options here. So what is onion skin? Onion skin is nothing but you'll see the previous frames, but a lighter version of it so that you know where to draw exactly, right? So in here it says frames are three. That means that you can see three frames behind this spring. I don't want three frames behind. So I'm just going to click on one because I just wanted to see the previous frame and nothing else. The opacity, the opacity is the opacity of this frame. You can keep it dark to light. I would say this, keep it lighter so that you can see what you're drawing in this frame as well. And then I said we'll look at this later document timeline. Let's click on Document timeline. So what this does is it actually shows the timeline for all the animations here. See as you go here, it will show you where, what is happening. So you can kind of frame your animation really well if you're dependent on the animation in the different layers. But since ours is not dependent on this layer, we're really no need this. So I'm just going to uncheck this and let's go back here. Let's concentrate on a five-line. Let's go to the second frame here and come back here. This black. So I'm going to go ahead and draw this. And I'm going to go ahead and draw this as well, which was black here. And I'm in to some yellow. And I'm going to put yellow on top of this, like this, all the way to here, I guess. Okay, that, and I'm going to choose some gray. Now I want its wings to be a bit outside like this. Make that an Augustan go back to yellow. And I wanted to show that it is kinda brighten. This one. That is, if you play on, you can see that it does that, right? That's awesome, isn't it? So now posit. So now I want this fight flight, move around the screen. So what you're gonna do next is actually going to go ahead and click on this part. And once you do that, you have this option to use your pencil. And is going to go ahead and make a simple path like this. And you'll immediately get this option up here. If you don't get this click on the fx icon here, and then you'll get this and you see fireflies moving in a direction. So what you can do now is go ahead and click on this option here called aligned to part and suddenly moves in that direction. So that is why we had to draw it facing upwards and now it's moving there. So let's just quickly go to every day. So blend mode is normal because we don't have anything happening in the background. So I'm just going to keep it at normal. And opacity is a 100 and multiples if you want more than 15 flight in this click and say I want five. So now suddenly five of them moving around. That's pretty neat, but you don't want them in one single path, so you can just click on scat and then it will go everywhere. And then you come here and it's going in uniform speed. That is now they're going in the same speed. But if you click here on the original speed, and this is the speed in which you actually drew the path. By the way, you can draw multiple parts. This is one part. So I can draw a part heel where I want them to go just like this. And you see how fast or slow I drew this makes them go fast or slow. I think that too many, too many of them right here, right? So if you don't want so many of them, you can click on this X and then delete that part. And you have only one. And I do definitely DO on four or five, maybe three should be okay, I guess. And so and this one, Let's make it at uniform speed. So everything is moving in the same speed kinda. And this is a frame. So this is basically determines how fast or slow your things are moving. I'm going to keep it here at around 20s so that it kind of matters with everything over there and the aligned. But again, if you randomize it, it's not going to go directly in the path, but it will go in the same direction, but not exactly on the game, but you can just keep it at 0 because I wanted to go in that part. Once you're done, you can click on these levels here and you see your, your fireflies are moving so nicely. So now you can go to any layer other than that particular path layer, and that part disappears by the way. And you can click on play all. And you can see that these things are moving and basically a Christmas trees lighting up. Okay, Let's go back here. And I'm going to go into the background layer, click on a new layer, and I want to add some color or background to it. So I'm gonna go ahead and click on this dark green. Click on your film tool, fill vector, and let's make it really dark and let's see how it looks like. It's too dark. I'm going to go ahead and change the color to a bit lighter. That's a 11077 and 34 and colored like this and let's play it. That looks good, that looks good. Maybe we need to put a star on top, right, so let's go ahead and click on a new layer and let's make a start now. So you have frame number one, which is going to be empty, and frame number two. And here we'll go into yellow and go back to your Belgium, russia, anything? And let's make a star. Okay, that's cool. Said keeps flickering and that's pretty wonderful, right? So next, what it can do can add some background. So click on a new layer and then mother shapes that we created in a previous tutorial. You can use those as well. So I'm going to click on that and go back to my shape library that I have. And I have some snowflakes that I created. Or you can use the background image that you have as well. I'm going to use one of the oldest snowflakes that I created. Maybe make it. Let's see, I use the green itself vector, but I'm going to go ahead and experiment with my blend mode screen. And let's see how it looks. Ups. No, redo it. And I'm going to go ahead and bring it here. Okay, and then go to your brush and go here and turn on the artboard preview. If you can see all those things. That looks good, but I don't like the green, so you can change the color of your background very easily. That is, click on a new layer and tap on clipping mask. And now you can choose any color that you want. If I want white and click on this fill tool and just click on fill with a vector and everything is like white, so you can make it white. So that's how white would look better. I'll hide it and go back here. I like this color, but I wanted to be a bit lighter. How about something else? Soft light, you know, maybe overlay. It looks nice. Let's keep that overlay. You can keep it at anything that you want. It's totally up to you. Okay, let's play all the backgrounds like that. And now you have all these things. And next is to add text. So click on a new layer here. And I'm going to go ahead and make a rough idea or write down my texts so that I know where detection go. So it's Mary. Wait a minute, not itemize Mary. Or you can write any message that you want. And then you can adjust this by using the Transform Key, make it bigger or smaller or whatever. Click on Done. Let's go ahead and reduce the opacity so that it's just there as a background so that you can see it really well. And now let's go ahead and choose this bright brain yellow that we have. And I want to choose a different brush that is amber ink. I think I'm going to use this classic comic snip. It is set to 40. And I think that works really well for me. So let's start doing this. Click on a new layer now. And since there are 14 letters here and we want to stick to 10 frames, we're going to go ahead and make some of them with double letters. That is, let me go ahead and do this. Duplicate. Duplicate. Maybe these two together because it's only nine. Duplicate. Let's just play all, but wait a minute, hide this layer. And now you can just do play all. And you can see that your card or your animation is ready. Okay, so once you have everything ready to export it, click on Share, Publish and Export and India, yes, something called motion. So click on that and then you can export it as you can rename it by the way, exported as an MBA and before Jeff or PNG sequence. And that means you get a lot of images with each sequence. And then you can click on Generate frames and it'll give you a very nice MP4. And yeah, that's basically it for animation or motion in fresco. There was a very simple one, by the way, I hope you liked it. Um, okay, I'll see you in the next lesson then. 10. Red Stocking: So in this lesson, we're going to go ahead and illustrate some Christmas stockings using mostly vector brushes, will also go ahead and explore this unique tool right here. That is the appearances or adjustment layers. So let's just get started then. I'm going to click on Create New. And let's go to Print and the cons small postcard. I want this in the landscape format. So if this is not in the landscape format, you can click on this tiny arrow here and switch to landscape. And once you do that, just click on it. I have a color palette for you, yes. Uh, go ahead and downloaded from the resources section. Once you have it, Let's bring it in here. Click on images, go to your photos and bring it in. Once you have it, click on down. Let's go ahead and choose these colors and put it into a recent stamp. You should know how to do this by now if you've watched one of my previous lessons. So let's go ahead and do it. Okay, I have all my colors. I'm going to hide it and hide it. Again, go back to a blank layer and lead start illustrating. So I'm going to be using mostly my vector brush, that is the basic round. And as you know, we only made one change to the setting, that is, click on the Settings, make sure your turn off the pressure dynamics. After that. Now we are ready to draw. Let's go ahead and draw the first one. Now. I'm going to go ahead and choose this red color because I think that looks nice. Let's select the size now. I want to make it about 10. You can click and hold and get this and you can type in 10 and pick outside. Now let's go ahead and draw a shape of a stocking that looks good on Maybe not. I'm going to go ahead and adjust it. It's okay. You can adjust it like this. Go to your fill tool and for and make sure you fill this part as well. Now it's time to add some elements to it. So click on a new layer and make sure you click on this clipping mask here. Now let's go ahead and choose this light pink. Now go back to your brush. That's got and make some designs. Maybe a bit here like this. Color it up. Then one line here. Maybe I should have made this white. So I'm going to go ahead and click on white, did the fill tool and fill it in. Now let's go ahead and choose the vector brush again. And I want to make a little snowman here. So go ahead and make a snowman bigger round, smaller, round. And I'm going to go ahead and draw a line here. Don't worry, we're going to come back to that. Okay. And I will go into that pink again. I want to put a little bit of a halo here. So just do that and then color it in this. Let's make the elements first and then come back here. Okay, Now I want to add things to the snowman. So I'll go here and choose this green and maybe reduce this to about seven or eight, something like that. And you can use your fingers to zoom like this. And let's make a band that's too thick, great, so we can reduce it further. And make a band like this. And I'm going to reduce it further. Maybe keep it one. So then I can put these eyes on it. And maybe the red. And let's make, who knows. But I think I'm gonna go ahead and choose black instead of this green. You can select white and then cover this up first. Now you can select black and then make these ice and maybe make some buttons. Okay, That looks nice. Now let's get back here and we need to draw some trees on this. So I don't want to draw on this surface itself. So I'm going to click again. And now I'm going to make it into a clipping mask again. So the second layer of clipping mass does not mean that it's a clipping mask on this layer, but it just means that it's a clipping mask on the base layer. That means, for example, you see this part which I color, which was in this clipping mask layer. Right? Now if I try to draw, it's going to go outside that. Okay, but it won't go beyond the stocking layer. That's because it's a clipping mask on this layer and lock this layer. That is, this is a parent layer. So you can create as many layers as you want as clipping mask. It does not matter. Let's go ahead and choose the green and maybe increase this now, maybe make it eight or something. I'm going to draw, try Nikos mysteries. Oh, this is too big, five. And let's draw some trees. If you've created shapes earlier, you can use those shapes as well. Or you have created custom brushes. You can use them as well. You don't have to draw each one of these, okay? And since I want some continuation, I'm going to draw here as well. And since it's clipping mask, it'll make sure that we don't draw outside. Now let's go ahead and illustrate the rest. Now I want to go ahead and choose the light pin that I chose earlier. I'm going to draw some hearts here. So feel free to decorate these things however you want. Just some ideas of what you can draw to create these things, okay? By the way, you can create this all in separate layers. You don't have to do everything in one layer like I'm doing. Okay. Now I'm gonna go ahead and choose white. And I'm going to go ahead and draw a line like this. We not exactly like that, like this, but it's going on this layer which I don't want to happen. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to go below this clipping mask, select a new layer, and that will be below this pink layer, by the way. And then I'm going to go ahead and draw our layer like this. I'm going to join these two here edges because I want to use the fill tool. Now, I can go into green and I could draw whatever I want. Oops, go back to your brush. And then let's draw. You can use this filter again over here like that. Maybe this home reduce the size and draw. Increase the size. Not so much. Okay, have this layer here. There's some white here. Maybe go back to your eraser tool and try to erase it. And it should go off. Now this few more things here, whatever you draw here should come below this pink layer. So make sure you create a new layer that is right below this pink layer. And now let's go ahead and choose some white. Again, if you're created gene some shapes, you can use that. So let me go here and I have the snowflake that I've created. I'm going to reduce the size completely. Go ahead and keep it here and then produce it. And I'm going to go ahead and add some of this. Okay, Once you're done, click back on your brush, and now let's go ahead and make some dots. Make sure you add some on the edges. Okay, that looks good. And I want to add some here as well. So I'm going to go ahead and use the same shape that I have. Where is it? It's over here, so let's bring it here. But I'll go ahead and click on a new layer. And like this, make it a clipping mask and now make the snow fix vector field. Okay? And then go back to your brush, and let's go ahead and make some dots here as well. Okay, In that looks nice. And now we are left with only the heel part. So I'm going to go into this layer which has seen heel part. But now if you want to draw some design on this, and if you tried to use a clipping mask, like I told you, it will be a clipping mask on the base layer and not on there. So it'll be very hard to control something so that it does not go beyond this pink layer. So in such cases, we can use mosques, that is click and click on Mask layer contents. And now you just swipe. And now let's choose y to reduce the size, maybe make it 1.53 can just draw things here. And you can see this does not go beyond the pink layer because we are using a vector mask installer for clipping mask. So this is one place where mask is very useful instead of a clipping mask. Okay, let's go back to the base layer and I'm going to go ahead and choose that red. I'm an erect a barrage. I forgot to add a little handle to it, so I'm just going to go ahead and make sure I add some thing like this. Okay. That looks good. No one go ahead and fix anything that needs to be fixed. That looks very nice. Now let me go to the bottom most layer, that's the background layer. Click on a new layer, go to my fill tool and I'm going to choose this really light pink and fill it with a vector field. I want a background for this. That's because I want to add shadow to this docking. So I'll go here to this stocking layer, which is the base layer, click and duplicate layer. Now you can see there are two of them and go to the layer behind that trick on black, fill it with black. And now let's go to the Levene's. Here. You can do overlay. And now click on Transform. And you can bring it back down a little bit so that it creates a little bit of a shadow like this. And once you're happy with that, click on Done and you see you have a little shadow happening over there, right? So first talking is ready. But before we go anywhere, Let's go ahead and group these into one single elements or that it'll be much easier to edit it later and it won't be as confusing. So make sure you are on one of the layers which forms this stocking. Click, Select Multiple. Let's go ahead and select all these. Click on this folder icon. Now, everything is in one single layer. Perfect. Now let's go ahead and do the next one. 11. Green Stocking: Okay, so now let's go ahead and illustrate the next one. So I'm going to go back into my vector brush, and let's cut and choose some white. Let's make the green one. Doesn't matter which side you're on because it's just marking out layer. So click on a new layer now and go ahead and draw another stocking. If you want, you can go ahead and duplicate this same ship. You know what? Let's just do that. So I'm going to double-click on this and click here, click and duplicate layer. Now it creates a middleware layer and go back to this one, click until this gets highlighted. Go ahead and hold on this arrow, so that goes outside. And now you can go ahead and place it here and you have the sheep outside like this. And now click on Transform tool here. And now you can bring it this side. And if you want, you can create it in the same size, like three of them. But let's go ahead and flip it so that it's in this direction. Okay, And I'm gonna go ahead and place it a bit here and I'll make it a little thicker. Why not? Right? And make it a little twisted like this and bring it down like this. And once I'm happy, I will click on Done. Now go to a white girl, your fill tool and then click to color this void. I hope you can see this. Now let's go ahead and put in some designs to click on a new layer. And obviously there's going to be a clipping mask. And I'm going to go ahead and choose the green. Go back to your vector brush. And I'm going to go ahead and mark this layer, something like this. You don't know what I've done. I'm going to go ahead and uncheck the clipping mass to show you that I put this like this. Now I can use my friend dual easily. And then if I do clipping mask in gestures up on that layer, I'm going to do the same thing here. That is a mark like this, but go ahead and make sure you close this loop. So now you can correct this is how it looks like right now. And now I'm going to go ahead and choose the brush and just make one line like this. You can do any fixes that you want if it's not straight. And then make sure you draw nicely. All right, Now click on a new layer and clipping mask again, and we're going to go ahead and draw some designs. So I'll go into white now. And I want this to, maybe about six of phi would also be okay. Let's go ahead and draw some designs like this. And then link, the link that I like. Then maybe put some dots here, I guess. Okay, That looks cool. Now let's go ahead and make some designs over here. So I'm gonna click and go into a new layer, again clipping mask. You don't have to do everything on a new layer, but it's good to do it on new layers so that you can go ahead and change it later on. Okay, now I'll go ahead and choose this red and I'm going to draw some berries. I think it's called berries. Maybe one, he just draw some berries. Make three of them here. Like that. Maybe one, H0 and H1 here. If you want this to appear below that. So just bring this below these layers and it'll be fine. And maybe one here. One here. We can add things later on as well. So don't worry about that. Now click on a new layer. It will be a clipping mask, but I want that to be below these berries. So click until it gets highlighted and bring it below like that. Now let's go ahead and choose this green. And I'm going to go ahead and add some leaves to it. So my leaves are going to be like that. And like this and make sure you join this end. And then you can use the fin door like this. Go back to your brush and add some here. You need to join this as well. Now let's go ahead and click on a new layer, and that'll be a clipping mask. And now let's go ahead and go to your vector brush and reduce the size to about 30 something. I'll go into my layers here and I'm going to go ahead and select screen, since I don't want to use a lot of colors, I'm going to be using just the green, but I wanted to be a little different. You know, it should look like I'm using a different color, so I'm just going to use that. But since I'm using screen, it'll come up lighter like this. So you see how you can use these blend modes for a limited color palette. Illustration, you can just do that. So using different, different blend modes will give you different, different effects. So if you do want this to be lighter, but in steady want this to be darker. Go ahead and use things like multiply or sometimes only. Those things weren't great as well. I'm not being careful. So I'm just gonna go ahead and do this. And don't forget two fingers to undo. You also have undo and redo here as well. I think that looks good. Now click on a new layer and I want to add some designs, but I want this to be a little smaller, about 1.5. And I'm going to go ahead and add a leaf green over here like that. Thickness to tiny, but that's okay. No, something like this. So very rough sketch. It's okay. Can go ahead and fill it in if you feel like there's a lot of blank. Maybe I'm going to add one here as well because I'm just trying to fill in the gaps so that it doesn't look too. There's a lot, a lot of whitespaces basically. And maybe here as well. All right, that looks good. I'm going to go ahead and add one more thing. I want more of these red ones, so choose red and you can increase this a little bit. And let's go ahead and add some red blobs to fill things in here. Small ones and big ones like that. Now I want to add something to the red things over here. So I'm gonna go back into the layer which has this bigger ones. Take on a new layer norm. It's a clipping mask by the web. And I'm going to go into my blend modes. And I will choose the last one, the luminosity. And now we'll go into the color palette here. I'm going to blue and then move this here so that it's a more dark bluish. And now what I'm going to do is slowly add a bit of color here like that. See what's happening. And we can go here and use this opacity to make it a bit darker. So I know it looks very weird, know, but when you go zoom back and look at it, it look much better. And you have to do this only for the bigger ones. I'm not doing it for the smaller ones. Once you have it, you can actually reduce the opacity here and then make it much, much lighter. And if you want to add shadow to this as well, you can always go into this layer which has the white base layer, click and Duplicate Layer. And go to the layer below that, make sure you're on black. Click, fill it up. Over here. You can click on overlay and then click on the transform tool and then bring it a bit down like this. Or if you want to make this and on the shadows don't make sense, but that's okay. So your second stocking is ready as well. But first, let's go ahead and group this again. That's go ahead and select multiple and select everything that forms this particular one. Folder. And cropping. 12. Reindeer Stocking: Okay, now let's go ahead and take on a new layer. And let's go ahead and illustrate the third one now. So if you want, you can go ahead and choose the same stocking size like I told you earlier. So go ahead. You can do this before you group it as well. That will be much more simpler. So go ahead and click, I'm going to do the black one, duplicate layer, click and hold, and go into this arrow here, my listing is bothering. So click here so that it goes back and then bring it in like this. Now transform tool, and let's bring it in here. Okay, this isn't the overlay mode. That's okay. Click on Done that, go here and choose this as normal. Now let's go ahead and use the fill tool. And for this one I'm going to go ahead and use white again and fill it in. Now let's use the transform tool. And I want to make a bit of changes to this, maybe meek like that. And tika or however you want, right? So make it like this and maybe keep it like that and maybe make it a bit longer. And then keep it like this, I guess. Okay, click on Done. Now let's click on a new layer, and then let's go into red. I'm going to go into my vector brush again, and I'm going to go ahead and make this part read. So, you know, make this like this and click and Philip, and obviously make this as a clipping mass or that gets completely covered. Now go back to your vector brush and maybe make one line right here. Maybe. Why am I having so much trouble? Okay? And now I want this one to be read as well. So I'm gonna go ahead and color this off and color it in. And let's click on a new layer and make this clipping mask again. And I'm going to go ahead and color this part here, right? So let's go ahead and choose white. And I'm going to go ahead and, and now we'll use the brush and go ahead and make lights like this. That looks good. And now let's go ahead and add a reindeer. But it's going to be my own, wash it off. And because I'm not really good at drawing animals 7-day to go ahead and I have a brown here. So I'm going to choose that. And let's go and do act a brush, click on a new layer so that if it doesn't turn out great, you can always hide it. So let's go ahead here and create around that's too big, I guess so make it a bit smaller. Something no, that's still around like that and color it up. And now I'm going to go out into my vector brush again and I1 round head like this. And then let's go ahead and cover it up. Okay, this is really big, right? It's covering everything away as I'm going to undo it using my two-finger tab and go back into my brush. I'm gonna make it really small like this. And then maybe small like this. That should be okay, Let's see. Now it should be much, much, much better. And I'm going to go ahead and use the lighter brown that I have and use the brush again. And I'm going to go ahead and choose like this pen color it. That looks good. And I want the pink because I wanted to go ahead and add a little bit of a nose over here. If you have read, go ahead and add red as well. That looks nice too bad. Let me just add a pink one for this, okay? And obviously choose black. And we're going to do I is two this guy. And I want to make this much smaller and add a bit of whoosh dash or whatever. Now let's go to Brown and I forgot to add years. We can increase the size again up to three or something. Let's go ahead and add years now. And obviously we have to add Atlas, so and less like that. Like this. And maybe here as well. Okay. Does that look like a ranger? I don't know, but yeah, This is going to be RND. Okay. And then obviously now I want to add some pink cheeks. So click on a new layer and click on clipping mask again. I'm going to go into pink and add a bit of cheek here like this. And I'm going to add here as well like this, but I don't want this. So dark click here, and let's reduce the opacity to about 50 percent. Now I'm going to go ahead and click on a new layer because I wanted to add some lights to this. So you have these orange or yellow and other colors. I'm just going to go ahead and dig that and add some lights like that. And maybe some red. Do we have an orange? No, you can go ahead and choose an orange if you want and add some lights like this, not blue as well. It's story up to you. So now let's go ahead and add the rest of the thing. But before that, you can make this clipping mask as well. It doesn't matter. I'm going to go into the layer below the reindeer and take on a new layer because I'm going to add some snowflakes. And for that, I want basically to be behind the reindeer. Go do your shapes now or you can hand draw everything by the way. So I'm going to go ahead and go into my library and choose the snowflake that I created earlier. I'm going to choose the end of the one that I created y-naught, and I'm going to choose the red color itself. Now where Western Snowflake of kids here. So I'm going to bring it here. I'm going to increase the size a little bit, keep it over here and then fill rectify. And I'm going to go ahead and make some more here as well, like turnaround and things like that. And make some more. And now I'll click on my brush. And then it goes back here and I feel like it's empty. So I'm going to go into my vector brush and let's see the size. That looks good. I'm going to go ahead and add some dots. Boundary. I really like dots. Bad looks nice. And if you want, you can go ahead and add some texture to this or colors to this red one as well. But otherwise we are done with this. Only thing is we have to go ahead and duplicate layer. Go to the bottom layer, click on black, fill it. Let's go here. Click on overlay Transform tool and bring it back a notch to make it look like it as some kind of shadow. And then done and all are three, stockings are done. Now let's go ahead and group these together. So click and select multiple, group all of these and fold up. Then we have all three in separate layers. Right? Now, go back to the layer that is this one here, click on a new layer and I'm going to go ahead and go into the pink that I have, which I have for the background by the way. And I'm going to go into vector brush. And I'll make sure I choose multiply for now because so that I can see what's happening like this. Now I'll increase the size, make some stars like this. And I'll click Duplicate Layer. And this one, I'm going to go ahead and do it into screen like that and unclick transform. I'll actually flip it and you can see it has created something like this. You can actually increase or decrease the size if you want or mood around. Once you're happy with this click on done as well, you can add extra bits, by the way, if it's going outside the art board, just go here and click on art board preview and it will cut off everything which is not there. Okay. Your stockings are ready. 13. Colors with Adjustment layers: Okay, and now it's time to experiment with colors. What if you don't like these colors at all? And you want to create your own set of colors, or you want to experiment with colors. That's why we have something called as adjustment layers. So I'm going to go on the topmost stocking layer. Doesn't matter which one. It really doesn't matter. And click on this here. That is, appearances or adjustment layers. Let's click on hue saturation. Let's move this here. And now you see if you change this bar here, all your colors actually change. I think I'm liking this kind of pinkish red wipe, so I'm just going to keep it at that. And if you want, you can increase the saturation as well. Like make it more colorful or less. Just going to keep it at whatever it was that as 0. You can see the number here. That means you haven't modified anything, okay? You can also choose the blend modes here, but we're not gonna do any of those. And then click on here. So now you've changed color of all three body. You actually wanted to change the color of just one stocking that as you just wanted to change the color of this, this one right here. So I'm just going to click and move it below here. And now you can see that the others haven't changed, just this one and the background has changed. So what this means is when you create an adjustment layer, this adjustment applies to everything below that. That means it applies to this fill layer, the two layers that we created above that as well. What if you want to apply this adjustment layer only do dyslexia and not to these things. There's this option that has clipping mask. And when you do that, you see automatically it applied only to this. So by default you can create these adjustment layers as clipping mask. That is, for example, I'll go to this background here. And when I click here, this is option called clips. So you just click over here and then you create this layer, and it automatically creates a clipping mask adjustment layer. Okay, let's go there. And if you don't want to use any of those things, it's very, very easy. All you have to do is hide it or you can actually click and delete that as well. So I just hide it and it goes away. So in this way, you can actually work with different colors. For your illustration. You don't really have to worry about changing every color in your artwork. And you can just change color using this hue saturation and contrast. So there are other things here as well, brightness and contrast that is nothing but increase the brightness, decrease the brightness and such that. And there's something called as color balance. It is used to actually control the colors. You can see this green over here when you see this option here. And this, you can see the background changing and yellow and blue. The green changes because it belongs to the category of yellow and blue or black families. So anything that belongs to these families will change colors. And if you don't want, just hide it, Hide it. And then you are done with your illustration. I'm just going to click on this here and then you can see this. So basically you can create these things and then export this like this. Or you can also go ahead and hide your background layers, by the way. And exactly like how we created a pattern with the cookies. You can create pattern with this as well. And this is something I created earlier. And you see you can create a pattern with this as well. I think that's it with this lesson, as in the next lesson. 14. Stamp Brush: In this lesson, you will learn to create a stamp brush using Adobe Capture and Adobe Fresco. So you can use this stamp brushes for, not just for decorating things, which we'll use later on, by the way, but also to create a watermark on any of your illustrations. Okay, so let's just get started. You can choose any file size for this particular lesson. But I'm just going to click on Create New and go into digital amplicon square. Let's do a very simple, very simple illustration. So you can use any brush you want for these terms. But I would highly recommend using vector brushes so they're nice and crisp. So I'm going to click on my vector brush. You can choose any size and you can use the tape or any, basically any brush that you want. And I'm going to go ahead and draws very simple Christmas tree, very, very simple. So it's just going to be like this. Oops. And maybe make it like this. And let's go ahead and fill in them. So my brush, when I try to stamp it, it's going to look exactly like this. If you want a brush which looks like an outline, that is, you go ahead and draw this like this. So if you want it to look like this, just make sure you draw it like this. So anything which is black will become a brush. Okay, so now once you have this, let's go to this layer below and uncheck it because we want to export this as a brush without a background. Now click here, click on Publish and Export. Export As. And we're going to go ahead and export it as a PNG and click on Export and Save image onto this device. And once it's done, click on Done. Now let's go ahead and open capture. Once you open capture, you can able, you'll be in the camera option by the way, or you'll be here. If you are in this screen, you can click on images here and go to your camera roll and bring that tree that we created right now. Okay, so once it comes in, it might be in any one of these things. So obviously look very different for you guys. But I want you to go ahead and click on Brushes. And now it's going to come to the screen right now. As you would have already guessed, you can create brushes out of images or using your camera option in Adobe Capture as well. So it'll just create some extra things over here. We took an edit later on, but I'm going to go into that right now. And once you are here, you can click on thick. And now you'll come to this screen where we have more options to edit your brush. So you can choose any of these brushes that you want. By the way. These are just things which have a little bit of settings into them, are modified into them. These are fresco ribbon brushes, by the way, which I have a little bit of a different thing. So i'm, I'm gonna choose any of that. I'll go into the first one that is a basic one right here, okay, and now let's go into crop. So if you have a lot of whitespace, yeah, you might want to reduce this by doing this, and you can move this one as well. That looks good. Let's go into settings. You might want to keep this the highest possible setting, or at least a little bit higher so that you have a lot of options. When you're trying to set the size of the brush. If you keep it to load, that would be the maximum size available and minimum size, you can keep it at 0. Now there's one more thing here called spacing. So I'm going to increase that so that I can distinctly see the trees like this. And in here instead of directional, directional does is it will draw in whichever direction you going, I'm going to click on none. So however I draw, I'm going to get a three which is straight like this, okay? Directional would make sure that, you know, changes. So I'll keep it at man. In the eye. You can select things for pressure. That is, if you choose size for pressure, if I don't put any brush, it'll be tiny, but if I put a lot of pressure, it will be bigger. So this is something which you can decide to do. I'm going to turn it off. Flow is nothing. Well, if you don't put pressure, it will be very light. If you put pressure, it's going to be very dark. I'm going to turn that off as well. So Jetta, so this is size jitter. So when you're drawing the line, it might increase or decrease in the size which we really don't for us. That's the same for angle. It can turn in any direction, but we don't want that as well. Same for the flow. So it'll be like, you know, randomly light and dark, which we don't want as well. And scatter is nothing but it's scatters everywhere, so it won't be in one single straight line. It can be scattered. I don't want this as well. So we have selected everything you click on refined. So here if you want to do fine, you can crop it or whatever. And once you're ready with everything that you need to do for your brush, it's time to actually save it. So now you can name your brush here. I'm going to name it as 3, 2. And it has where you want to save it. So this, you can save it to any of your creative cloud library. Or if you want, you can click on this plus to create a new one. Or you can just go ahead and choose one of these things that you have. And we're going to go ahead and save it to print me some color. Click here. And it automatically shows about patterns and other things that you want. I'm just going to click on Save. Or by the way, you can also save this as a shape. Why not? Let's just save it in or click on Save. It's easily saved. And it's going to do this so that this kind of updates. Now let's go ahead and open fresco. Alright, so now you are here in Fresco, and now it's time to go ahead and check your brush. So by the way, all these brushes that you create, even though you use the vector brush, it's going to be a pixel brush. So if you click on your pixel brush here and scroll down, you'll see your library brushes and go ahead and search for your library. That is print me some column. I'm going to click on that. And I included something called us 32. So it's already here, right? So click on that. And now I'm just going to hide this click on new layer. Let me bring this background back. Now I'm on that brush and you see I have things like this. I can reduce the size and make smaller brushes, increase it and make bigger ones. Now I can go ahead and choose some red color and I can create a red plush. And this is basically how you create a stamp brush or how you can create your own watermark. So for watermark, I just did everything with the vector brush. I just drew this thing and exported it and created it as a stamp brush. Okay, so that's it for this lesson. It's super easy to create a stamp brush with Adobe Capture and fresco, isn't it? Okay, I'll see you in the next lesson. 15. Watercolor Brushes: So in this lesson, we're going to go ahead and briefly explore the watercolor brushes in Adobe Fresco. Will also learn about how to add watercolor texture or any kind of texture to your Outlook using images or texture images. So let's just get started. I'm going to click on Create New and go to print and choose a small postcard in the landscape format. Okay, So let me quickly talk about the live brushes. Are the watercolor brushes in this. If you click on this, you'll see something called as watercolor brushes. These five brushes act exactly like watercolor brushes would act like that is, if I go out and do some random color, that's pink and I'm going to be in watercolor wash flat by the way, and then destroy it. And you see how nicely it spreads. And I'm going to go ahead and choose some other color, blue maybe. Then if I add, you see, it kinda gets mixed up here. And I can add more color and it becomes darker. So this is how live brushes work. The same works with the oil paint brushes as well. So if you see they are very thick and nice. Okay, we'll come to oil paint brushes a bit later on. Now this one is going to be mostly about watercolor brushes, the wash flat. This orbit looks like. Okay, let me go ahead and clear that layer. So in this, we're gonna go ahead and drop very simple trees and later converted into a pattern magazine. We like making patterns over here. So let me go ahead and bring in the color palette for this, the economy. So in your watercolor brush setting, you see a few settings, few extra settings. Actually, one of them is nothing but the flow. This is nothing but the amount of color on your brush. So you can keep it at a 100 and you see that it's very bright. You could keep it lower and you see that it's not so bright. I usually try to keep it in midways, fifties. I'm in depending on the project if you want, you can increase the dose 160. So whatever. Next is the water flow. It's not equal the amount of water on your brush. So let me just quickly show this to you. Waterflow 100 would look like this. So it's like a really nice wash. And then if I change this to about 0, it would look like this. You see how it is. It's not mixing that well because there's very less water. And you see these braces, That's actually a dry brush bristles. So you can get a dry brush effect by putting this to almost 0. In this setting away. I usually tend to keep it between like fifties. That's what works for me. Let me clear this layer. So you have few brushes over here. So if you want some really dark color, watercolor round detail is really nice. Otherwise might go to brushes, watercolor wash flat. I rarely use basic watercolor because I don't know it. It just doesn't appeal to me. And there's some watercolor wet spatter that's just, you know, put some splashes here and there, which is great as well. And now, if you want to use the watercolor brushes, but you want to use just the water and not the color. What you can do is you have this touch taken. If you don't have it, you can find it under touch shortcut here. So if you turn it off, you'll see it goes away and then you turn it on and it comes back. So if you double-click, now it turns the inside circle on. And now when you re, put it, it's pure water seeds, ACL, that it's pure water. Let's go test is, so I'm going to put some water here. Now I'm here, I'm going to make this completely 0. So the water flow is 0 and double-click so that goes away. Now if I draw it so dry, but you see it spreading here and not here. That's because there's water on the canvas already. This is a very nice thing to know, especially when you're trying to draw things like skies and you want colors to mix in as you put in the color. This works really, really well. Okay, let me go ahead and clear layer. Now let me go ahead and use the watercolor wash flat and let's start drawing. One thing about the watercolor brush is, let me, let me change this to 50. Okay, So one thing about watercolor brushes, It's really hard to control the edges. You see what happens here. It kinda goes away. The best way to deal with watercolor brushes when you want to be careful about edges, is to use with the lasso or the selection tool, I usually use the first option here. So I'm gonna go ahead and draw some trees right now. So my first one is going to be something like this. And obviously I'm going to go ahead and change the color, maybe put this and I want the wash. So I'm going to cancel muscle. Gurion watercolor brush. I've set it to watercolor wash flat. And there's about five hundred and four hundred, something like that. Going to add some color here. And I'm going to go ahead and choose the darker version of that same color. I'm going to go ahead and add some color here like that. Increase this a little bit. And now I'm in deselect and you can see that there's a very nice gradient happening here, right? It stopped is later, mom is darker. That's perfect. Now let's go ahead and draw the next one, again, selection tool. And you can make this any way you want the trees. You know, we're just going to draw some random trees. And we're going to go ahead and choose that light green that I had, just no watercolor brush. And I'm just going to draw it like that and a bit more colorful than the previous one, de-select. Now let's go ahead and choose again. And this time I want to make something different. So I'm just going to go ahead and draw. Something like this. And I'll go ahead and choose this lighter green that I have. Brush. And I'm going to go ahead and color with the lighter green in the bottom. Then I'll choose the darker green that I have. And on the top I'm going to put the dark tree. Now when I click on a new layer, I'll go to mode and click on Transform Selection. Now it's going to transform the selection and not the actual artwork that. So I'm just going to go ahead and move this up a little bit. Something like that, and click on Done. And now and go ahead and put the dark color on top. And choose a lighter color and put it in the bottom like that. And I want to click on a new layer again, again, transform selection. I'm going to go ahead and move this up here again. Maybe reduce the size a little bit. That looks good. Click on Done light color all the way to. If you want, you can add the dark color on top, but the light on the bottom, click on de-select. And then you kind of created a tree. Now you can go ahead and click and click on Merge Down, click and merge down. And now everything is in one single layer. Now let's go ahead and choose a different color and choose this color right here. I'm going to draw a tree, but with the selection tool again, and I want it to be something like this. And then I'm going to go ahead and color it completely like that. Then deselect. Let's go ahead and do one more here on this w0 bit like that. And maybe this yellow want it to be darker in the bottom deselect. And then again, maybe this one can be round. I'm going to choose this light green here. Maybe add a bit color here. Can actually choose this round detail and add more color if you want. To go back to my watercolor wash flight, and then de-select, and then one more, maybe that, and then choose some colors. Maybe this one, maybe choose a bit of yellow. And then de-select. All right, Now go to a layer below that and click on a new layer because we're going to add some stems to it. So go ahead and click and make one like this so you can go ahead and use the selection tool continuously like this. It doesn't actually continue with each other. It would just stop as soon as you close the lasso, it stops over them. Like this. Now I'm going to go ahead and use brown. Go back to my watercolor brush. You can actually choose a different brush. So I'm going to go ahead and select my dry media and harpists. Because why not going to go ahead and draw some like that and maybe use a darker brown in some. Maybe this light that doesn't look good. Let's make it light and dark. This one also doc, then de-select. And your trees are almost ready, but no, we have to add some stuff to go back to this layer, pick on a new layer. Now let me go to watercolor brush anyone and if I try to draw it kind of mixes in, right? If you want to use watercolor brush, again, you have to go to the layer on top and then you can use the watercolor brush and it works just fine. For this. I'm going to go ahead and use the rough pencil under dry media. And let me go ahead and choose some colors. This one, I want something darker here like that maybe. So I'm just going to go into the layer on top and go ahead and draw something like that. And for this one I'm going to choose really dark purple that I have. And now go to the layer below this. Click on a new layer and click on clipping mask. And now I'm going to go ahead and draw this. And you see how dark it is. So let's go here and change this to screen. Maybe overlay, overlay looks better. Okay, let's do that oily. And next one is this one, and I want this to be Ollie as well. So I'm going to go ahead and draw this like this. Okay, that looks good. For this one. I will choose the same color, but I'm going to make some things like that. And for this, let's choose yellow. I'm going to click on a new layer, and now I'm just going to go ahead and draw these things, make this, or this needs to be a little darker. So I'm going to click on clipping mask would go here and click on Multiply so that it comes out very nice and dark like that. Okay? And I think I want this one to be multiply as well, so I'll just use the same color and draw it like this. And for this, let me choose the dark green. And I will choose watercolor round detail for this. And this. 16. Watercolor Texture & Pattern: Okay, so now if you want to add some watercolor texture to this, go ahead and download some watercolor texture that you can find online. Or you can scan your own watercolor paper and you can add that as well. But I'm going to provide a link to download a free watercolor texture. Go ahead and download it, and let's go ahead and bring it now. It will be saved to your gallery or photos. Go ahead and bring it in as click on images, photos and bring it in. So this is my watercolor paper, so I'm just going to turn it around so that it's like this and increase the size so that it covers the whole page and click on Done. You see that I've put it on top of all the layers. That's because I want this texture on everything, okay? And now all you have to do is click here and click on Multiply. And they go, you have your watercolor texture on everything. If you put in close, I don't think you can see it on the screen. We can see that this is a watercolor texture. Now it's time to go ahead and make this into a pattern. So how do we do that? To do that, we want the watercolor texture to our new on the trees and not in the background because we got to hide the background anyway, right? You can actually go ahead and hide the background. And then the watercolor texture would still be that. So we don't want that on everything else but just on the tree. So I'm just going to go ahead and merge all these layers. That is click and merge layer or merge down, do the same here. Merge Down words down. Milestone. So all the three things are on one layer right now. And now in this one I'm just going to click on clipping mask. So now this is going to apply to only the watercolor area, wherever the watercolor is and not to the background area. You can also go ahead and click on Merge Down and NAMI or one single layer and it's ready to be exported. And that is click, Publish and Export capture button. No click select this, click on Done. Once you're here, you get this option. I'm going to go here and select the hexagon. That looks nice. And then free form a grid. And I'm going to go here and bring this in here. I want one more. Okay, Now, click on this and click back here. And I increase the size of this and try to place it somewhere here. Like that. Click on this, reduce the size and replace it, then I want to look, okay, That looks nice and I think they'd like this bottom actually. And I'm going to click on Save. I'm going to go ahead and save this. If you haven't watched my previous lesson on how to create a pattern, go ahead and mortar, because they have explained this in a much better way over there, okay. And click on save. I have created some as well, like this one right here. They go. And I think I love this one actually I used three different sizes. This the biggest one, little smaller and then really tiny, wanted to create this one. And the one that we created just now is over here. They go. There's the pattern that we created just now. Okay, you are super simple, wasn't it? Using watercolor brushes gives it a very nice look and feel. And I think I really loved these watercolor brushes other than creating watercolor landscapes. This is one of my favorite things to do with these brushes. Okay, I hope you can create some awesome patterns with this now and I'll see you in the next lesson then. 17. Gift Tags with Vector Trimming: In this lesson, we're going to go ahead and draw some gift tags. So we're going to learn a few things like vector to remain using shapes. I'll paint brushes and something with that you can do with things that you're already created in this class. Okay, so let's just go ahead and get started. I'm going to click on Create New. And I'm going to go into print and I will choose a, A4 size, our port for this. So let me first go ahead and make the shape of a gift tag. But to do that first, let's go ahead and use the option that has grids. Click here, this will open up your grid of guides. India. I'm going to click on grids now and show up very nice grids. You can use your spacing here to either make it low or make it big. And I'm going to go ahead and keep it somewhat like this so that it's easier to understand. You can increase the opacity or decreases. Let's keep it at here. So the alignment guides are on. That means that when I try to move things and show me where the center of the artboard is. This is nothing but snapping. That is rotation snapping. If I'm turning some object using the transform tool, I will, for example, if I draw this, if I do this and when I'm turning and you see the angle there, now it'll snap at 45 degrees. I can change that here by putting it to 90 or 30 as well. Let me just clear layer. So now I have everything ready here. I'm just going to click here. Now, if you click here, here, you have something called as guides. So if you click, this is the ruler. If you click and hold, you'll see a circle, square, and polygon. The way these things work is if I click on square and if I have this, you can resize it. And once you want to draw something, click here. And now you can just draw like this and it'll warn, move anywhere. And you will create a very nice square or rectangle or whatever. You can also use this to fill that is filled tool and fill, Fill, and then it'll fill it like this. Okay, I'm going to undo that. And let's clear that. Let's click. And then I'm selecting ruler now and use the vector brush for this and basic round and make sure your turn off the pressure sensitivity. So I'm going to tell you about something called as vector trimming, which is like an awesome tool in Adobe Fresco. So I've chosen vector brush for this, which is really important and you can choose anything else. I'm going to click on a new layer because that's a pixel layer. Now we can use the ruler to rotate it like this, or you can move it anywhere you want. So I'm just going to keep this year and I'm going to make a shape of a tag. I will just randomly just draw. And since you are using a ruler, it'll stick to the edges. So it won't go haywire here and there. So it'll be perfect now and go ahead and move this ruler up a little bit so that I have around 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. And I'm going to go ahead and draw another line like this. Now I'm use my two fingers and rotate it so that it's 90 degree or 0 degree as it shows, you can use two fingers like this. And I'm going to pull it up here and draw the line. Always make sure the lines are much longer than what you need. That's really important. Okay? Now I'm gonna go here and again, 0 degree and I think I need my tag to be at least this much. And you can go ahead and draw a line. Now, I can go ahead here and draw a line as well. Now I'll turn this and make sure that these two are together like this. And I'm going to draw a line here like that. And we're going to go ahead and do the same thing here. That is, I'm going to make sure these to that. And I'm going to draw a line. Now let's go here and click on ruler, do remote. Now you have this awesome sheep, which is definitely not the shape of a tag, gift tag, but that's okay. We're going to get there. Now you see this here. If you don't have this, again, go here and click on touch shortcut so that you'll be able to see it double-click. And now you have something selected. This is nothing but the eraser. So if you do this, it'll be an eraser. But if I click again, the outer ring get selected. And now it is a vector trimming tool. That means if I go ahead and do this, the excess lines gets deleted. Look at that. Look at that. Everything that crosses gets deleted. Like this. Can do this and deleted off. No, I can do this and that goes off. There was a crossing, so okay. Do this. You can do this as well, is to go away and this as well. Let me I wasn't very careful, so I'm just going to delete that. Be a bit more careful with an don't be like me. And then I can do this. And they have a very nice shape of a gift tag. Right now you can go ahead and click and select circle. Then we're going to decrease the size. You can zoom in like this, bring it in here. Let's go ahead and bring it will make it straight. Okay. It doesn't matter, it's a circle, but it just looks nicer when I do that. You can make a whole year Gloria fill tool to fill. And then click on your brush. Go ahead and there you have a gift tag ready? This is so simple to make. And if you feel like this length is a little too much, you can actually decrease it as well. We're going to go ahead and click on this. There's an extra strokes here. So I'm going to go into my eraser tool and just delete them off or increase the size and delete them off. And now we should click on Transform. Again, it's selecting something else. So I'm just going to go ahead and delete off. Make sure this is Likud the highest setting so that you can delete things off. And then, oops, nope, students, some stuff. Best way to notice is the DAG here will come to the center of the art board. Okay, now it's fine. Maybe it's something here. Yes, there's something here. See. Okay, Now it's perfect. So you can click on the transform tool and reduce the size year or something like that and adjust this as well. Depending on how you want your gift actor look like. So the second thing is something that you can do later on, not right now because I want to fill the shape so that I can use it as a base for all my illustration. So I'm going to use my fill tool here and go ahead and fill it completely black. Okay, now I'm going to click and duplicate layer. Now click on your transform tool and let's move this up a little bit here, like that and click on Done. Now you can click and merge down. And now click Duplicate Layer and click and bring it down. And click on Done. So we have four shapes here, and let's make four of them. If you want to make more, go ahead and add and duplicate them, decrease the size we are using the transform tool if you want to fit more of them here as well. 18. Gift Tags with Shapes & Oil Brushes: First, let's go ahead and check how we can reuse the things that you've already created in this class to create the effects. Let's go ahead and open up the Christmas stocking file. So this is the Christmas stocking file that I have and I want to export this one here, the one with the reindeer. So what I can do is I can click and click on Copy layer group. I didn't go outside. I can go back into this. And I'll click paste layer group. And it's going to go ahead and paste that over here like this for me very nicely. You can click on Done. Now, you have that element here. You can do the same thing for other things as well. Now let's go to this layer. One of these layers, which one is at the bottom layer? And I'm going to put this so that I can make a very nice gift tag out of it. So I'm going to go ahead and probably choose a really, really light pink that is about here. I think that should be good Korea film tool. And let's fill this one in. Maybe make this a bit lighter, even more lighter. So I'm going to go ahead and put this in. So basically this is your main color, that is red, orange or whatever. And this one tells you how strong you want it. So if you keep it here, it will be the reddest red that you have. And if you move it, it's going to be lighter. Okay, let's color this. And now I'm going to go here, click on Transform tool and bring those in so that it sits some modeling this towards the end. And I want this to be clipping mask to this particular layer. So, but you can't do that because it is a layer group. So click and click on Mars layers. But before that, just go inside and make sure you delete this layer. Now, go back, click and modulators and grew. And now you can do a clipping mask, and this is how you get your stocking overhead. And next, let's go ahead here and you can choose any brush that you want. By the way, maybe I'm just choose painting and I'll choose canvas, brush flat. Now let's use white. I'm going to go ahead and make this a little bigger. Or 190, 200. And I'm going to go ahead and add some white bit here like that. Wait a minute. Like that. So that it looks like it's a bit of a painting. And I would go into my text tool, select the red and click. And I'm in here. It's a textual by the way, we'll never use the text, don't. So this is one opportunity to learn about it. So in here you can actually set to any text that you want. If I click on an arrow there, it shows me all the texts that are available. You can click on More Fonts. And this will link to your Adobe font library so that you can go ahead and pick up any kind of font that you want. And I'm going to go ahead and use this chain printer regular. I don't know why, but I think I like it. And go back here. You can click on this keyboard audio and type whatever you want. So Mary, return THE RISD MAS, and then you can click on this keyboard here again, and it gets selected. And you can move this up here. So if you want this centered, you click on here. You want everything bowl or the uppercase. This one, it doesn't work for this text because it's already uppercase. And if you want to increase the size, you can either do this or you can also do this to increase the size. And this is the spacing between these two alphabets, um, in these two lines. So you see increase the spacing or decrease the spacing. And this one tells you what font it is and different kinds of strength if it's available. So I'm going to put that one here. That looks good. Now, I'm done with that now and go and click on a new layer. And I want to add some stars, do it. So I'm going to go ahead and use the white and not text again and go into my brush. And I can just add bits lasers, but I want it to be too thin. So I'm going to add like that. And then go, that's one of your gift tags. Ready? Let me go ahead and uncheck the grid because we don't need it anymore. It's clean the bothering me. There's your first one. And what I'm going to do now is go back to the layer here. And I will choose some color. And I will fill it in so that I can see mine gift tax much better. Similarly, you can also bring in a cookie and create a cookie gift tag as well. Now let's go back to this layer here. And I'm going to choose white. And I'm going to fill lesson. And now let's go ahead and use some shapes. Let's click on shapes. And I'm going to go ahead and go into floral. This is a shape which is available in the for free. That is, if you click here, you can discover new shapes. And India, you can go ahead and add new ships. K and the flower shape, I have something like this. This is the flower shape. I'm going to reduce the size and add it here. And I want this to be a nice blue. And, uh, do you have it? Click on Fill and it fills it. Oops, sorry. Click on a new layer and make sure it's a clipping mask. And then for vector field, cool, That's very nice. I want to add some other shape, may be this one. So I'm going to go ahead and put this here and put some yellow and fill it in like that. And I think I'm okay with that. Now let's go to text and click. And obviously I want it to be a bit red or not. And let's see, maybe we can keep this as a token. I think I like it. So click here and let's say be joyful. And let's go ahead. Click on that again. And let's increase the size. Keep it here. And I want to reduce this distance between the two, right? So you see it's become like that and be joyful. And I think I'm happy with that, so I'm just going to leave it at that. Now let's go here and let's try to use the shapes that we created earlier for this one. And I'm going to put this back and go to Fill tool and make sure you are on a particular layer which has this. And let's go ahead and fill it with this pink, but even more lighter. That looks good. Now let's go ahead and choose a darker red. I'm going to go into ships and go back into shapes that I created earlier. Or wait a minute, let's do the brush for this. Let's go here. And remember you created a brush. Let's go up there with my library. Here it is. And I created a brush called tree. And now go to the layer which has this one, and click on a new layer and make sure it's a clipping mask. And then let's go ahead and add some red ones. And now I'll go ahead and choose the darker pink that I have and add some those as well. And maybe some white. And you have a unique gift tag. Very okay, so let's go to the next one now. And I think I want to use the oil paint brushes for this because I think I haven't used them in this entire class at all. Okay. And I wanted to cover that as well. So let's go ahead and fill this one where maybe let's go to yellow and a little lighter yellow, fill this. Now let's go ahead and click on a new layer so that it's a clipping mask on this. Let's go ahead and choose that red there we have gory or oil brushes. And I'm going to use the oil paint chunky because I like the Tech's Jon is. Do you see that? That's just amazing, right? So for oil paints that are few settings that are very different from watercolor brush. One of them is this one here, which means paint mix. So what paint mix is, for example, no, I have read, I'm going to draw that. Now. I'm going to choose this brown and I'm going to draw that. And you see the paint mixes, It's not entirely brown, right? So the amount that mixes is called the paint mix. So if you keep this at really low, and if I tried to draw brown seeds not mixing as much. Now if I keep it really high and when I tried to draw it, It's mixing so much that the brown is going away. So this is a melon medium. So I'm going to keep it low because I wanted to mix but not too much. The next year is the floor. This is again, the flow of the paint on your brush basically. And then there's one more setting. If you go into Settings here, there's something called Reload Color. What does means is now when you're mixing listings, for example, if I turn this off, now I'm going to mix these two colors like this. And go here and tried to color this and this are matching, but means whatever the column mixture happen, that is going to be on my brush right now. If I click on Reload Color, now if I go and mix it like this, so it's a mixed color. But if I go here and draw, it's going to use the original color on my brush. That means that it reloads color on my brush. Venom I've lifted up. And these are few important things you need to know when working with oil paint brushes. Let me go ahead and clear layer. I'm going to make really simple ones right now. I'm going to go ahead and choose this and draw some berries. I'm going to go ahead and choose a darker color to here like that. Now I'll click on a new layer where I want this below the berries. And I will choose some green that is good green, and then choose some green like that. And then let's do Olympian detail. And let's go ahead and make some link that you see when you fill it and you can see that rich or had been textural. I absolutely love it. And then you can do Okay and mines. For these two, I'm going to go into my eraser, reduce the size. It is it off? And then let's go into red again. And I'm going to my brushes and use detail, go back into this layer and I'm going to go ahead and draw this a little bit because I don't like how that turned out. But obviously it's going to mix that dark color now. Do you see that texture is amazing. And they go, you can go ahead and use the green that you have, make it a bit darker if you want. Okay, once you're ready, you can go to the topmost layer, click on a new layer circle, and you can bring that in before like this, and then go to your black or whatever color you want and fill it in. And then you can do the same thing here as well. And if only increase the size, click here and you get the bounding box. And then click, it goes away. And then you have your gift tax ready and to export it, make sure you go here and uncheck the background, both of them. And you have just the tax ready and then click, Publish and Export, Export As, and export it as a PNG or as a PDF. If you're going to print it out. And then you'll have your beautiful gift tax ready. So that's it for this lesson. I hope you create awesome gift tags using these methods. 19. Drawing the Winter Scene : So in this lesson, we're gonna go ahead and draw on simple, simple winter scene using Adobe Fresco and animation. We're going to go ahead and explore it a little bit about how to add these textures and make a simple, super-simple when the same. So let's just get started. I'm going to click on Create New and go to digital and click on current screen size. So I have a color palette for you guys to go ahead and download it. I'm going to bring it in here as well. Again, your color palette might look a little different, so don't worry, I'm just going to go ahead and add these colors to my palette. Click on a new layer. So I don't have any sketch for you guys. So we're going to start off from scratch. So first we're gonna go ahead and draw some trees today. So you would want to pick your lasso tool and make sure it's on this option right here. Let's go and draw some trees. So you just go ahead and close the loop here like that and draw some random trees like this and make some branches. And let's do some here as well, some thin ones. And then there's a tick 1 hii. And you would want to go ahead and draw it like that so that it has a branch. And then maybe one like this. Okay. I think that's all one more here. Maybe. That looks good. And now let's go ahead and choose this really dark color. And I'm going to go ahead and choose my dry media, heartbeats, toothbrush, et cetera, 175. The flow is at 40 and smoothing is at 0. And I'm going to go ahead and just draw. So I'm not adding too much pressure and making it completely dark. Know what I'm doing right now is adding a bit of texture to it. So I'm just mean going and drawing it in a way that there's some kind of texture seeing, seeping through. Okay, so I'm just going to go ahead and draw that like this. And now I'm going to go ahead and click on a new layer. I am not going to add everything. Let's see layer since my selection doulas, since Tim selector, I don't have to use a clipping mask, which is amazing because if you try to use clipping masks now, since it's textured, your mass clipping mask and also the texture, which is not a nice thing to know. And go ahead and click on rough pencil. I'm going to go ahead and add some. Wait a minute, I'm going to undo that. Choose white. And let's go ahead and add some lines like this to our tree. Now I'll click on a new layer again. And I'm going to go back into my heartbeat still. I'm going to add some whites here. This is just to show that there's a bit of snow here and there maybe, I don't know, It just add a bit of white here and there, especially in these corners here. And let's add some whites. That looks cool. I think I have enough whites there. And once you're happy with your trees, you can click on de-select. And I'm going to go ahead and group these three things together because I wanted to be more organized. Click, select multiple click, click and click on folder. Now go to the layer below that. And now let's go ahead and add some snow here. So I'm gonna go here and click on this lightest, lightest blue there you have 208 and a 100. And I'm going to go into my tool here and select some area like this. Wait a minute. Just select it like this. Go to your heartbeat faster. And obviously click on a new layer. And let's go ahead and draw this and obviously reading them some texture so that you can see through it. Now let's go to Y, and now I'm going to click on a new layer. I'm keeping the selection by the way, I'll go here, going to Ricks and that is rate, texture. And I've chosen white. By the way. I'm going to go ahead and add some texture here like this. Can you see it? I'm going to go ahead and add that or here, okay? And once I'm happy with that, de-select, now, I'll group these two together. That's good. Now it's time to add more trees. So I'll go behind that layer and click on a new layer. And again, go to this tune right here. And we're gonna make some trees here. So something like that. And let's go ahead and choose a light gray, not too light, maybe this one. And go back to your heart paste. And let's just color it in. And now we can go to white and maybe add some more, can go to a new layer by the way. And a bit more here and there. Just to make it look a little nicer. And then obviously the white lines as well if you want. Why it is fine. It was rough pencil and you can just bit of lines as well. And make sure you do a clipping mask. Bring it down here so that it's only in Greeley. Okay. And once you're happy, de-select, I'm going to group these things together as well. And go back to that layer. And one more layer, it should be behind these gray things. And now the darker blue that I have summit. Let's go ahead and make one more hard paste. We're going to color this off. I'm going to choose some white and going to add some white on the top. Just like that. And then I'm going to go into my rakes. Can add texture grid as well. Nice and greedy staff to ensure like, Oh, it's no and things. So you can add that as well. And when do you happy de-select and that's okay, that's done. Now you'll go back here and click on a new layer and add some green stuff. That is, I'm going to choose the lighter green. Again, choose the selection tool. And I'm going to go ahead and draw some shrubs like this. Me, meaning the drawing some shops, maybe here. And use the heartbeat. And you can, by the way, click on the star and it'll show up in your favorites. So I'm just going to go ahead and add this light green. And now I want one below behind that. So click on bad, and now click here and make some more shrubs. And then choose the darker green here. And let's call it a day. And I want some white, and I'm going to go ahead and add some white to that as if there's some snow up there. We want to do that here as one-click and clipping mask and add some snow up there as well. And then de-select, again, group all these things together. Select multiple, select slag group, and now go to the layer below. Click, and I'm going to choose the blue color that I have again, selected door and maybe make it like that. Color it off. And the summit. And now I'm going to go back here and click on a new layer. I'm going to add more trees now, but wait a minute. I want to add just a behind these shrubs actually. So I'm going to go into the layer which has the blue one, click on a new layer so that it's sandwiched between the blue layer and this one. Click. And now let's go ahead and make some trees now. And then let's go ahead and choose the lighter one here, not the lightest but the lighter one. And I'm going to go into how based on again. And then just coloring. Once you're done, de-select the same as that one is an int. So undo, undo, and I'm going to go ahead and selling the lighter one and then go ahead and call it Sudan deselect. That's good. And now you can actually go ahead and go back to that layer that is below that layer. And now let's make some more bushes. So I'm going to go ahead and do that. And then you can choose that lighter green that you had and use that. And let's color it in. And deselect. I obviously don't want it so bright, so I'm gonna go here and reduce the opacity so that it's very, very, very light like that. And now go below that and click on a new layer. And then let's choose again the selection tool and make some more trees. A few of them, That's it, okay, and then we choose the lighter gray. Use the brush to de-select, but we're gonna go here and reduce the color of that so that it's much later. And now let's go back to the bottom most layer and click on a new layer and we're going to add the lighter gray. We're gonna make it move it up a little bit, and then we're just going to fill it with a vector field. And obviously that's too, too soon. So reduce the opacity so that it looks something like this. You know what? I don't like the color of gray here. So if I go here, is that the one? No, not that This one. Yeah. This one here. So I'm going to go ahead and fill it up with a different color so maybe make it darker gray and then summit. So I'm just going to go ahead and fill that layer seed. So easy to adjust that. So I'm going to go ahead and make the next one that is, this one, by the way, can double-click to go inside a group. Click here. And let's go ahead and choose the darkest one. And let's just color this dark. Whoops. This, I'm going to go into my layers and reduce the opacity a little bit because that's a little too dark for me, right? So I think I'm happy with waterway. However it turned out, and now it's time to go ahead and add some more elements to it. 20. Animating the Winter Scene: So first of all, I want a bird to be flying across. So I'm going to go ahead and meet Dan animation first. So what I want to do is I want the bird to be here that is behind this layer. So I think it is this layer. Now that's over there. That is tao1. Okay? This is this one. So I want the bird to be about us. So click here. And I wanted it to be behind these bigger trees, right? So let me go ahead and go to one of my other brushes. That is, if I going to ink, There's something called Belgian Comics. And I'm going to use that brush for this illustration. And I want white. You can also make any color bone that you want. No problem. So let me just zoom in so that you can see what's happening. Okay? So my bird is going to be like this. It has a tail obviously, ahead. And next it has eyes, which is black in color. Okay, I'm not going to draw the beak signal or the wings. And now I'm click on the Animation panel. So it will come like this. Now I'll click and I'll duplicate frame. So I want the same thing repeated. So now I'll go to the first one, select red, and I'll make a beak like this. And I'm going to select some grid, doesn't matter which gray actually select some gray and I'm going to make the wings down like this. You see that? And now and go to the next layer. But I'm going to turn on the onion skin here so that you can see what's happening. And I'm going to make the wings up like this. And then I'm going to make the beak openly that no, Let's play or it's too fast, go ahead and change this to two or three frames and then play. And you can see how it is flapping its wings. Now pause now I'll go here and I'll choose black. I forgot to make the legs. So I'm going to make the legs like that. Okay? And go to this layer here. And I made it in bacteria and come to this layer. And I'll make it like that. It doesn't matter on the legs on it. Okay, Let's play this. That's perfect. Now I want this bird to fly away. So I'm just going to pause this now and take apart. And I'll go ahead and make it go like this. Perfect. Now once this comes, you're going to decrease the frames. If you've watched my previous video on how to create this, you will know what all these things are against. So let's decrease the frames so that it's flying uniform speed. Everything looks good. Make sure you're aligned to part is turned off. And then my bird is flying away. So that looks good. Now let me go here. The bird is done. Now I want to add some snow day. So I'm gonna go to this layer and click on new layer. And now I will go into my brushes. That is basic. And there's something called soft round opacity. And I'm going to go ahead and use white. My setting is at 136. This one is set to flow, is that a 23s smoothing is at 0 or one. So now I'm going to go in and add a white blob like this. Can you see it? I made it here. Okay. And now I'm going to go ahead and click on Path and just draw a straight line like that. Now when it comes like this, I'm going to add multiples like that and I'm going to scatter them more. So they're very scattered. And now I am going to add multiples of them so that it looks something like this. You can reduce the frame size so that it's a little bit faster. That looks cool. Now I'm going to click on a new layer, pastas. Click on a new layer. And now I'm going to go ahead and use the hard round brush. And I'm going to go ahead and draw one small snarling. This is just a small dot. And I lose the pop again and then just draw a straight line. And then obviously add multiples and scatter them. More. Maybe reduce this. And then you can randomize. So then goes anywhere on those. Decrease the frame size. Add a couple more. Maybe more. If you want more snowboard. I think that's enough. And then pause. Go here, click somewhere else. And now if I play all you can see that your bird is flying a VA. There's awesome snowfall happening. And yeah, it's a very common peaceful day in the winter wonderland. So once you are ready with this, you can export this, Publish and Export, and you can export motion. And here MP4 or you have other options to export as well. And then click on Generate frames and it'll be ready to save as a file. You can also do a time-lapse export. That is, this works for any artwork. It need not be animation, whatever you draw, you can do a time-lapse export that is, click on this. And now you can see the whole process of how you drew this thing comeback. So there's a time-lapse export as well. So once you're done, you can click on Export. I'm just going to cancel this. Okay, so that's how you draw snow, you wintry landscape in Adobe Fresco. So I hope you enjoyed this lesson and then create something awesome. 21. Bonus: Free Brushes: So I'm quickly show you how to bring in new brushes into your Fresco. I don't know if you noticed, but fresco itself has a lot of free brushes. As establishing warn you though, that this option is available only for premium fresco uses. As far as I know, there are two ways in which you can get extra brushes in fresco. One needs to utilize the awesome brush library that fresco itself provides. And second is if you have any Photoshop brushes that are bought, you can bring them into fresco as well. So to bring all the brushes into Fresco, you have to go into your pixel brushes and click on this plus sign over here. And if you want to discover new brushes, this is where you get all the Fresco brushes which are provided for free. Import from files is when you have to import from ABR or the Photoshop brushes. So let's click on Discover new brushes. So as soon as you do that, you'll see tons and tons and tons of brushes which are available here. To add them into your library, all you have to do is click on this Follow button and then it says following progress. And once it's done, it shows the button as unfollow, that's Click on Done. You can find them under pixel brushes. And if you scroll down, you see something called as a library brushes. And if you scroll down, you'll see that fall 2021 brushes and you'll have all the brushes listed here. It is a bit slow sometimes, so it takes a few seconds for the brushes to show up here. For example, if I go to guage, you can see all these awesome quash brushes as well. See if you like some particular brush, just click on the Start button here and add it to your favorites so that when you go into your favorites deal just immediately show up. And now to add the brushes that you have downloaded, you can click on import from files, Goryeo file, or wherever you have stored your brushes and look for that ABR, ABR file. And then you can just click on it and bring it in. And the other way to make extra brushes is to create your own. That is, you can create stamp brushes which are recovering later in this class. You can also create many other types of brushes using the same method you will need Adobe Capture for creating brushes, don't, okay, so that's how you create new brushes, are bringing new brushes into Adobe Fresco.
