About This Class

10965c19

I will be teaching my illustrative lettering process from concept to completion, and students will be given the assignment of illustrating their favorite letter, or the first letter of their name. Once the students understand the process, they can then extend their concept to an entire word if they please. Otherwise, their illustrated letter can stand alone as a piece of artwork worthy of being framed!

If you have at least a beginner skill set in adobe photoshop, you will have no problem working your way through the digital portion of the class. I have done my best to explain all of the tools and techniques I used in the creation of my project, so after watching the videos, you should have a better understanding of how illustrate your letter digitally!
