Photoshop for Illustrators: The Basics
A straightforward approach to beginning illustrating in Photoshop.
Photoshop for Illustrators: The Basics is the class I wish I had back when I was fumbling around, trying to gain an understanding of how to use Photoshop in my illustration work.
If you're brand new to Photoshop or if you need a refresher after a long time away from Photoshop, this is the class for you. We'll start the beginning with setting up your workspace and creating documents and work our way through the various tools you'll use to create illustrations in Photoshop, finishing up with 2 drawing demos so you can see how it all comes together.
Photoshop for Illustrators: The Basics is all about giving you the building blocks to create a successful Photoshop art practice. Based on my experience as a children's book illustrator and licensing artist, I'll teach you what you need to know to get started illustrating in Photoshop. We'll start with simple examples and work up to a step-by-step process where I demonstrate how I use my favorite Photoshop tools in my own work.
Along the way you'll learn:
Hi I'm Stephanie and I'm a children's book illustrator and licensed artist with a passion for demystifying Photoshop for my fellow illustrators and designers.
If you follow me on Instagram, you'll probably know that I love drawing birds and other wildlife, and that I use Photoshop every day.
When I started using Photoshop over a decade ago, I spent countless hours scouring for tutorials on illustrating in Photoshop--a tough task given that I was new to digital art and didn't even know what terms to search for. In my Photoshop for Illustrators classes, I'm doing the hard work for you and offering up classes that I would have wanted to take all those years ago, classes geared towards illustrators, classes that break Photoshop down into manageable bites.
I can't wait to share my Photoshop knowledge with you!
"Photoshop is such an important part of being a professional illustrator, this class not only gives you the step by step to achieving a final illustration - it shares the insight only a true photoshop pro could have! After the class you may still struggle with making the switch from traditional art, but you know you have a deep and thoughtful resource to go over again and again, and fine tune your skills."
"This course was a great introduction for me. I was basically brand new to Photoshop and very intimidated by it. Stephanie’s teaching style is very approachable and made Photoshop seem a lot less intimidating. It was a perfect way to learn the tools I needed to get started."
"I first began design work using illustrator so going over to Photoshop seemed the biggest leap until I discovered this class. It is broken down into bite size chunks so you can fit it in around everything else and easily redo sections. With plenty of examples and clear instructions you're sure to pick it up quickly and easily! I really loved how you could do this class no matter what experience level you were at, style, anything goes!"
