[PUBLISHED] A New ART Medium - Digital Painting In Photoshop for Beginners


Class Title - A New ART Medium - Digital Painting In Photoshop for Beginners
Class Description -

Hello, artist. This is a class on digital painting in Photoshop. This class is for artist and Photoshop users that are new to digital painting. It’s also for digital artist looking to learn a few tips to help improve their workflow and art. We’ll learn about tablets, Photoshop's tools, how to paint and blend colors, special effects, and much more. Come join me (Brandon) in this laid back class where we don’t take ourselves too seriously but have a huge passion for art and all things beautiful. Let’s learn something cool and create something amazing.  :)


Project Title - Learn and Create
Project Description -

Okay artist, it’s time to show me what you got with these 3 projects. Feel free to do 1, 2, or all 3 of them. Obviously, I encourage you to do all of them :)

  1. Take 2 colors (preferably a warm and a cool) and blend them together just like we did in the “Blending” video. Use any brush and any method for blending to get the best seamless blend as possible.
  2. Do a master study like we did in our “Thumbnails - Concept Development and Practicing” video. Doing a thumbnail study is a great way to learn how the masters created their art and can improve your own art skills. I feel like learning how to paint realistic lighting can help anyone out with their art, regardless of their style. So I recommend doing realism.
  3. Create your own art piece. Show me what it is you love to create and why you took this class. Canvas size is your choice. Recommend 1000px for longest side (width/ height).
