Project Description

eb305adc

You’re going to be creating an illustration inspired by the meaning behind your name. I suggest working through the following process to get your juices flowing:

  1. Do a little Research - Google your name and take notes on what you learn. You can even ask your parents if they had a reason for giving you your name to make the illustration more personal.
  2. Word Web - Make a word web based on what stuck out to you during your research. Just let your mind free-associate - what is sometimes seemingly irrelevant can prove to lead to fun connections down the road. 

The process videos will walk you through the following:

  1. An introduction to Quick Mask Mode 
  2. Sketching for best results
  3. Capturing Photos - How to scan your photos or edit a picture you’ve taken with your phone
  4. Selecting and Cleaning Up Sketches - Getting rid of stray lines and breaking illustrations up into smaller pieces for coloring and texturizing
  5. Coloring
  6. Texturizing


Take pictures of your process to share in your project! Walking through your process and reflecting on it is good for you as an artist, and great for the community to be inspired by.
