This course is designed to help you feel comfortable with
painting inside of Photoshop. The lessons here are taught in an
easy to understand way. You will learn all the basic tools that you
need to get up and running with your own digital painting process
very quickly. Photoshop has some extremely advanced capabilities
but to utilize them, you must first master the fundamentals. That
is exactly what this course is created for.
You will learn the interface of Photoshop and how to navigate through it efficiently. You will learn many shortcut commands as well as how the tools can be used from the perspective of an artist. We will cover the main tools for digital painting such as layers and groups, blending modes, brush settings, file sizes, selection tools, quick mask, rulers and guides, dodge and burn tool, color balance, transform tool, hue/saturation, and the smudge tool.
In this course project, you will work alongside me in REAL-TIME as we create this space scene. This way you can implement all of the tools we have studied and learn how effective they can be. You will learn how to build upon the paintwork to create depth. You will learn how to apply texture with basic brush settings. You will also learn how to study from reference and create your own painting. That way you are learning from the world around you while using your own artistic abilities to create the work.
I am here if you have any questions about this course. Feel free to contact me and let me know if you would like me to add any additional lessons. It is my goal to make this course an amazing experience for all of my students. It is my absolute honor to be your instructor and good luck with your studies!
