Throughout these lessons, we will learn how to work with digital painting and photo-manipulation techniques in Photoshop. We will be creating an extremely vivid and colorful illustration. We will start by sketching a composition and then paint all elements from scratch, all the while manipulating them with abstract textures to create exciting digital artwork. By practicing your painting skills and working with blending modes, you'll be able to create unique pieces of digital artwork for your next project. Software required: Photoshop CC (2014).
Introduction and Project Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Valp Maciej Hajnrich. I am a full-time freelance digital artist, art director, and illustrator. I've been working for ESPN The Magazine, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Bros., and Western Digital just to name a few. I'm focused on print design, including album art and sport illustration. In this course, we are going to learn how to use photo manipulation and digital painting techniques in Photoshop. We will create vivid and colorful illustration inspired by hippie's art from '60s and '70s as well as pop art. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to create posterization effect, work with different blending modes to create saturated illustration and how to combine photography with textures and digitally painted elements. By the end of the training, you will have learned how to use your digital painting skills for creating unique artwork for your next project. I am excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these techniques with you. So let's get started with the first lesson.
