About This Class

Whether you are an independent artist making conceptual pieces or a designer looking to develop painting and illustration skills for commercial work, this class will explore a method of painting inside the Photoshop that will help you do just that. Here we’ll try to develop your painting style and technique, give you technical walk through for transforming your design from gray scale images to fully colored artworks and show some helpful keyboard shortcuts.

You can follow this course by making your own gray scale image and then color it or use attached templates, whichever way works for you best. That way anyone will be able to take this class and easily follow along with my step-by-step instructions. What is important is to familiarize yourself with the process and paint.

I can’t wait to see what you guys create.

Finally, as a reward for finishing the class and leaving a project I prepared a bonus package. It contains resources for your future digital work.

Great class! It shows a nice transition from grayscale to coloring, new techniques and tips, especially the power of layers. Thank you, Milan!
Great class! Easy explanations and enough time to try out the things by yourself. Milan is an amazing tutor and I am always happy to work with his glasses & learn new, practical things. :)

I graduated on Academy of fine and applied arts in Belgrade in 2002. and went on working as an Art teacher in 2003. At the same time I started painting using traditional mediums such as oil, pastels and watercolors and exhibiting my work.

Main Solo Exhibitions: 

  • Amsterdam, Arps & Co Gallery, 2014;
  • Veliko Gradiste, City library 2009;
  • Pozarevac, National museum 2005;
  • Kucevo, Cultural centre 2003;

From 2006. with learning photography and softwares such as Adobe PhotoShop and Illustrator more of my work became digital.

In 2014. beside being a teacher and painter I started working as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer. This continues to these days.
