Throughout these lessons, we'll learn how to quickly create a strong advertising campaign for a cosmetic billboard's initial composition. We'll cover how to create a realistic vector lipstick illustration from a sketch in Illustrator, as well as create a colorful, realistic beauty portrait from a stock reference photo. By the end of the course, you'll be more knowledgeable in how to create a logo for a fashion/cosmetics company, how to apply effective background gradients and lighting effects to billboards in Photoshop, as well as how to arrange the final composition. Software required: Illustrator CS6, Photoshop CS6.
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.
