In this class, we're gonna have some fun in Photoshop. We are going to create a design proposal for a pair of headphones by starting out with a simple black silhouette.

Here's some of what you will learn:

  • How to setup a Photoshop document for sketching - Resolution, DPI
  • What brushes to use (we are going to focus on standard PS brushes)
  • How to create simple silhouettes as a template for ideation sketches
  • Understand where to put light and where to add shading

  • Creating cutlines or section lines between the different parts of the product
  • The easiest way to visualize LED light with specific layer blend modes
