Description

In this collection of lessons we will focus on Creating a Stylized Pin Up Cover Design in Photoshop. We will begin this process by learning how to use the refine mask features in Photoshop to successfully extract our model from her background. Next we will walk through recreating the environment for our model as well as grounding her into it. From there, we will shift our focus to the typography on our cover, looking to create a sense of movement that compliments the pose of our model. After completing the background elements in our composition, we will work on color correction to help our model fit better into the scene and give her more of a vintage look. Next, we will learn how to paint stylized flames that will highlight the movements of our model. Finally, we will shift our focus to lighting and really add that last bit of polish that makes our piece shine. After completing this course, you will have an understanding of the tools, techniques and workflows that go into creating a professional magazine cover. Software required: Photoshop CS5.

Hello and welcome to this series of lessons dedicated to creating a stylized pin-up cover design in Photoshop, presented by Digital-Tutors an Adobe Authorized Training Partner. My name is Eddie and I'll be walking you through each step in building this design, beginning with only a stock photograph. We'll begin this process by learning how to use the refine mask features in Photoshop to successfully extract our model from her background. Next, we'll walk through recreating the environment for our model as well as grounding her into it. From there, we'll shift our focus to the typography of our cover, looking to create a sense of movement that compliments the pose of our model. After completing the background elements in our composition, we'll work on color correction to help our model to fit better into the scene and give her a bit of a vintage feel. Next, we'll learn how to paint stylized flames that will highlight the movements of our model and finally, we'll shift our focus to lighting and really add that last bit of polish that makes our piece shine. After completing this course, you'll have a good understanding of the tools, techniques, and workflows that go into creating a professional magazine cover. Let's get started with our next lesson.
