Project Description

Let’s make it digital! 

ASSIGNMENT:

Your assignment is to create digital version of your watercolor drawings. You can use any drawings you like. This assignment is about editing process, not about drawing itself. When you're ready, start sharing steps of your process in the Project gallery. 

DELIVERABLE:

 Complete project should include:

  • scan or photo of your source watercolor drawing
  • result after editing in Photoshop

 Optionally:

  • result of tracing process in Illustrator
  • some designs you've made with your drawings

RESOURSES:

And of course if you need some help, I'm always here to help you. Do not hesitate to ask your questions in Discussion section!
