About This Class

In this class, we're going to draw Halloween stickers. 


If you have no prior experience in drawing, you shouldn't worry, this class is open for everyone.


We'll start by making a full sketch and arrange all the illustrations on a workspace to make them look nice all together. After that, we'll continue by making the clean lines, finish up with the coloring part, and in the end, we’ll be adding the cut lines.

And let's start coloring our objects so we'll start by color in the boto. And to make this grabbed a magic, want to go to the line Lee and start selecting heiress inside the lines To select Tuomo heiress, you need to use the shift key. When you're selected, all of the areas you need go under select modify, expand. I'll expanded to two pixels. But if your lines are figures in mind, feel free to expend the selection for more pixels. We need to do this step to avoid the white space between Akala and the lines. When you're done was explained in your selection, you need to set the colors. I am using the prepared color scheme which you confined in a project and wrestle stop. So if you want to use the same collis, feel free to download this file well, you can pick the cause was I drop it too and We need to go to the collar and let ram the pain bucket to and just put a cost on our selected area. When you're done. De selected with the Control G and let's elect other areas that needed to be God again. Go to the line Lee and start selecting two era. Don't forget to go on the select, modify expense and big another color. Go to the car and let takes a paint bucket to and political on their selected and continue doing the same steps with other areas. Also, you can use just to brush to to cause a space you didn't call it or at the small heiress, Where's the Magic? One didn't work. Well, now we just put in the basic collar so all the shadows and highlights are gonna be in the next part of a class where done with scarring the boys and board. Also, let's move on to other objects. Okay, yeah, and And yeah, - and nowhere done was put in the basic colors. So let's move on to the shadows and highlights 6. Adding shadows & highlights: So let's move on and boot the shadows and highlights. Let's start by creating and Euler above the lay with the colorant. Let's name it as shadows. Then we need to quicken it with the right mouse button and said it as a clipping mask. And now everything work rate and on this leg will be showing up on Lee in the areas with anything on the previous scholar and layer. Also, we need to select this lay and said the Callum or to multiply. Now let's move on and let's start putting our shadows on. Go to the color scheme. If you're using the same colors and being the dark ical for every object we have now taken brush and let's start putting our shadows. It is very saturated now, so let's said the capacity of this late to 40%. And let's continue putting our shadows. Use the Erez itude to fix the mistakes. Also, if you notice that you miss some places well, putting the basic colors, let's fix it now. Just go to the currently and fix it on colored areas. - All right, and we're done was put in the shadows. So let's move on to the highlights Great and Hewlett in Bob's earlier was shadows. Give it a name said that as a clipping mask. And let's select the Kalamata for this layer as overly. And let's Biggs a lighter yellow car and start putting the highlights on. Now it looks very saturated, so let's decrease the capacity to 70% and getting back to other objects, all right, and no one done. It's putting the highlights. Now, let's said the color for the background. So creating Ula and Bob's that already exist in looks, background and just being the color. I will put this one on, And if you're not happy with the color, you can change it easily into the dialog window, using the control you key combination. Also, I don't like the Shericka on the bottle, so I want to change it. Also, let's fix it. I will need to go to the current layer and with a razor to cut the extras and where John was put in the shadows and highlights and set in the background color 7. Making cut lines: and knowledge. Just make the sticker Scott line for our illustrations to make that, we need to go to the Langley and Big the Magic 12 and click on the blank space without objects. Now we need to go on the select and we need to click on in verse. And all of the objects are selected with the Magic one now. So we need to expand this election to Mexico outlines. So go on the select modify expense and let's set it to 12 pixels. Now let's create and Ula above. DeLay was a called by ground and sensical as White takes a paint bucket to and feels the selection with the color. And now all administrations have the cut line.
