About This Class

There are several ways to make your watercolors digital. In this class, Olga Shevyakova, graphic designer and illustrator, will show you her personal process of getting watercolors into digital version (both raster and vector). This -minute class is broken up into tree main parts: Scanning, Editing in Photoshop and Converting into vector in Illustrator. In these parts you’ll know about scanning tips for having a high-quality image, editing in Photoshop process, and, finally, about tracing and post-processing results in Illustrator. By the end of the class you’ll be able to use your watercolors for any design purpoces here and there. Or, since digital watercolor is trendy nowadays,  you can open up an Etsy shop for example and start making money!

As a bonus you will receive a little cute watercolor set, so you can start your design process immediately.

For this class you’ll need Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator (if’re going to make vector version of your drawings). You can get free trial version of both at adobe.com anytime.

My name is Olga, and I'm graphic designer, part-time illustrator, part-time styled photographer, full-time learner and busy mum. I like to learn something new every day, try new spheres of activity and share my knowledges with others) 

I really like Skillshare because here we can learn from each other and communicate with other creative people. That's so cool, isn't it?=)

And I like to make some nice photos and here is my Instagram account
