About This Class

Imagine you have just created a beautiful pen drawing - it's one of your best drawings ever!.......but you want to see it in colour - right?

Well this is the class which will show you just how to do it. 

Here's what you'll learn: 

  • How to scan and clean your image using the non-destructive process of Quick Mask Mode.
  • How to quickly divide parts of your artwork onto separate layers for ease of colouring. 
  • The solid colouring process 
  • ..and the transparent lock coloring process (my favorite!)

Who knows what you could do with your image afterwards?

Greetings cards, prints, tote bags, ....the list goes on...

A fun, gentle introduction to editing drawings in Photoshop.
Very clear and easy to follow instructions! I'm looking forward to putting this in practice.
