What you’ll learn

  • By the end of this course the students will be able to use Photoshop tools more effectively to create their own digital paintings.
  • Students will have a firm understanding of how to apply textures through their paintings to enhance the look and feel of their artwork.

In this 6.8 hour course you will learn how to use Adobe Photoshop CC to better create your digital art. This course has 27 lessons that move you through the entire process of creating a fully rendered character in full detail. ( Bonus Content ) 3 Additional lectures on painting wood, fire, and ice. Run time is 45 Minutes and includes the PSD file to study from.

In the first section you will learn the tools  that I use and how I use them. You will learn about the layers and groups, the selections tools, dodge and burn, custom brushes and settings, blending modes, adjustment layers, layer styles, quick mask, and much more.

You will then move through the illustrative process with me from the rough sketch to the digital painting. We will start with a pre-drawn pose that I have supplied and we work out the concept from there.  You will learn how to rough sketch your ideas without jumping in too fast with refinements.

This course can be completed with any drawing tablet. I am using a Wacom Intuos 4 to create this art and although I will be mentioning things about that device you can use any tablet with pressure sensitivity. Mainly so the brushes will react in the way that I explain them.

I have designed this course to be a basic approach for beginner and intermediate digital painters to learn from. I created in the way that I would want to learn. This will not teach you everything about Photoshop but it will give you a firm understanding of how I use it to create my digital paintings every day.

Bonus Content – With this course you get all the art files and my full Photoshop custom brush set ( 50 Pack ) to work along with. 

I am here if you have any questions and I would value your feedback so that I can continue to create better products for everyone. Thank you for your support. Good luck with your studies! 🙂
