About This Class

7a9886f0

In this class I´ll show you my process of painting and how I use special brushes to give to your work a "Mixed media" look only using Photoshop brushes.
If you...

- Love that textures you see on children´s book and classic paintings but don´t work well with inks.
- Already paint digitally but are tired of the same painting style and want to know another artist´s workflow..
- Are starting to paint digitally and want to learn an easy technique to achieve a nice look for your works.
This class is for you!

I´m used to working this technique for children´s book illustration, so i´ll foccus on this aesthetic and give you some tips to explore textures for this kind of work.

So come with me in this adventure and i will do my best to guide you in this world of digital painting with special brushes on Photoshop!

------------------------------
 IMPORTANT:
What you´ll need: Adobe Photoshop (can be Cs2 and above. I´ll show some resources from cs6, but they´re not necessary for our class.)

I deeply recommend you to have a Digital pen to make this class. Even if you can use brushes with mouse, painting at computer requires special tools for it. You´ll only reach some effects that will make the difference on your work, using it.
