In this seminar you’ll learn about a more “illustrative” use of Photoshop to design a graphic. You’ll combine photos with digital art and effects created from scratch in Photoshop. A variety of tools and techniques will be used. Even though you’ll be learning how to create one specific graphic, these techniques are universal and can be used in many situations.

Here are some of the topics we'll be talking while creating the illustration:

  • Masking
  • Fill layers
  • How to make patterns
  • Filling with pattern layers
  • Using Adjustment layers
  • Using Blend Modes to colorize
  • Opacity versus Fill Opacity
  • Gradients

We’ll make step by step instructions for completing the exercise available to everyone who attends.

This seminar is designed for people with some working-knowledge of Photoshop. It is not for total beginners.
