Introduction and Project Overview Hello everyone, my name is Marcus Kiser. I am a contract graphic designer and illustrator. I'm currently working on an Intergalactic Soul art exhibition, which is an independent project. In this course we're going to create a comic cover using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to do sketch and ink work in Illustrator and do colors and effects in Photoshop. By the end of the training, you will create a multi-media composition by using both programs. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these techniques with you, so let's get started with the first lesson.
