Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Simeon Elson. I am an international freelance illustrator based in the UK. In this course, we are going to learn how to illustrate and design a makeup advertising billboard. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course will include: firstly in Illustrator learning how to create an awesome colorful effect to realistic portrait from Stop Reference, how to create a realistic lipstick render from hand-drawn sketch using the mesh tool and gradients, then in PhotoShop we will design a large-scale billboard poster, arrange a simple button design, then add some cool light effects to the lipstick before adding a cool gradient finish. By the end of this training, you will have learned how to illustrate and design a stunning large-scale makeup billboard poster consisting of cool vector art and lighting effects. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these techniques with you, so let's get started with the first lesson.
