About This Class

Creating realistic product mockups is a great way for designers and artists to show their work to clients and potential customers without the expense of making prototypes. Whether you’re selling digital products, creating freelance work for clients, or pitching concepts to a potential collaborator, product mockups are an excellent way to add some dimension to your portfolio and to share your artwork in an exciting way.

In this class you will learn how to create simple flat lay and complex dimensional mockups for spot graphics and repeating patterns. Using Photoshop, I’ll show you how to save your mockups as templates for unlimited use - you only need to do the work once!

You’ll only need two things to participate in the class - some of your artwork and Photoshop. We’ll be working in Photoshop the whole time, and you’ll need version CS3 or later. If you don’t have an updated version of Photoshop, you can get a free trial here. Links to the stock photos used in the class are available in the project section so you can mockup along with the lessons, or you can use your own photos.
