Photoshop Illustration Techniques

Free Seminar

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.

This free class will cover numerous topics while creating the illustration shown below. We’ll also 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.
