This class will teach you how to illustrate using shapes and color to define form, rather than inked outlines.
In this class I’ll be taking you through my process of illustrating a character, starting with the concept, then moving into Illustrator to create the shapes, and finally, rendering it in Photoshop. I’ll also talk briefly about texture and color adjustments.
What You’ll Learn
Finding Inspiration. We’ll discuss sources of inspiration and identify a project we’re passionate about.
Character Concepts. We’ll sketch out the initial idea of your character.
Building the Foundation in Illustrator. The shape tool will help you build a foundation for your character.
Rendering in Photoshop. You’ll use masks in Photoshop to render a detailed version of your character.
Color Adjustment and Texture. You’ll use color adjustment and texture tools to fine tune your project.
What You’ll Make
This class is perfect for the beginning artist, or even a professional one who’s looking to learn a new style. Once the class is done, you’ll have a fully illustrated pirate, (or other fun character of your choosing), to add to your portfolio.
