Making easy flat-style Illustrations using the Lasso Tool

Create fun and simple illustrations using the lasso tool in Photoshop!

This class will be centered around developing fun and simple flat-style illustrations using the lasso tool in Photoshop. Using the lasso tool in Photoshop is one technique that makes illustrating flat-style simple designs go much faster than other techniques that give the same look. If you need a quick fully colored illustration on the fly, this can be a real time saver plus it's a lot of fun! Getting a clean and professional edge is sometimes hard to do in Photoshop but I've found using the lasso tool when I don't have the time or need to vector something out to be a great alternative. 

In this class you will learn:

  • how to use the lasso tool to select/deselect and build great shapes as part of your illustration
  • how to quickly switch between the different tools we'll be using, using shortcuts speeding up your workflow
  • how to organize your file for easy editing and changes
  • how to use simple shading techniques to add depth to your illustrations

I can't wait to see your projects, join in and share your work!

* This class requires you to have photoshop and ideally a tablet but if you can draw with a mouse, more power to ya!
