Photoshop for Illustrators: Texture & Pattern
This is an intermediate level class that explores creating and using custom shape brushes, textures, and patterns in Photoshop. You'll learn to apply these skills to create detailed, unique and organic-looking digital illustrations. Stephanie Fizer Coleman teaches this self-paced class, which contains 22 videos with over 4 hours of content.
- To create basic custom shape brushes and custom texture brushes, and apply them to illustrations.
To master basic repeat pattern creation through a variety of methods.
- To build creative textures both through digital and hand rendered methods.
To begin building a library of custom shape brushes, texture brushes, basic patterns, and pattern overlays that can be used in illustration or design work.
- And to harness the skills to create beautiful digital art that looks hand painted or hand drawn.
Also suggested is at least a basic graphics tablet. Illustrating digitally is a more organic process when you're using a graphics tablet instead of a mouse, and this course assumes that you are using a graphics tablet.
This course is being taught on Photoshop CC. If you're using an older version of Photoshop, you may find it difficult to follow along simply because things will look different. If you don't already have it, I recommend a 30 day trial of Photoshop CC, which you can download at Adobe.com
