About This Class

I got my first (and only) tablet in 2010, and it didn't take me long to start loving digital art, but I often found myself wishing I could more easily incorporate traditional elements such as pen and pencil line art and watercolor motifs into my digital drawings and designs. Luckily, through my years of experience, I’ve picked up some useful techniques and tricks for doing this. In this 60-minute class, I'll go over such things as using alpha channels to add digital color to traditional line art on separate layers and vectorizing watercolor illustrations to make them usable in Illustrator.

Whether you're a seasoned pro at Photoshop and Illustrator or you've never opened the programs, you'll feel comfortable in this course. All levels of skill can benefit from the techniques taught. Hope to see you there! :]
