It can be difficult to give static illustrations a sense of motion and energy, but not anymore. In this course, Infusing Energy into Illustrations Using Adobe CC, you will go through all the steps to successfully implement energy and motion to your "skateboarder" central figure. First, you'll start in Adobe illustrator by creating a cool graphic vector illustration of the skateboarder central figure, using a stock photo as reference. You will be using the Pen Tool, Brushes, the Gradient Annotator, and much more. Next, you will cross over into Adobe and employ energy and motion to the illustration composition, adding scanned, hand-drawn pen stokes to the composition and manipulating effects. Lastly, you will use the Brush Tool to draw Pencil-like lines, giving your vector illustration a somewhat sketch-like look. By the end of this course, you'll have all the skills you'll need to create an illustration that feels lively and energetic. Software required: Adobe Illustrator CC, Adobe Photoshop CC.
