About This Class

80f6988a

In this Skillshare class you’ll take hand drawn sketches and turn them into a finished, digitized illustration! Your project will be to create an illustration based on the meaning behind your name. We’ll be using Photoshop’s Quick Mask Mode to select our sketches for infinite editing while leaving all the character intact. I’ll take you through my workflow for brainstorming, sketching, capturing, cleaning up, coloring, and texturizing your illustrations, as well as suggest some tools and classes to expand your skills! Some familiarity with Photoshop will aid you greatly in working through this course; I’ve linked to a Beginner’s course for Photoshop in the project resources if you find you need to brush up on fundamentals.

This class was so much fun. The project itself was a lot of fun and really exercised creativity. There was a lot that was easy to learn and pick up along the way. Dylan really makes learning effortless in this fun and straight-forward class. I'll be watching all of her classes!
