New Skillshare Classes! Underpainting Made Easy // Refine with Overpainting and Effects

  • by

Hi everyone!

Since the site has been down for while, I never got to share my new classes with you all! As the continuation of my very first class Digital Illustration: Sketching Tips and Tricks for Digitizing your Creative Process” I created two new classes that follow up on how to paint your sketch or lineart.

If you are just starting out in digital painting, the amount of colors that are available to you can be quite daunting! It can be difficult to create a vibrant and harmonious image if you don’t know what your doing. No need to worry though! In both of these classes, I will walk you through my personal process on how I color my own illustrations. Not only will these classes help you create amazing pieces, they will also show you time saving techniques that are helpful on a tight deadline!

While both of these classes do follow my Sketching Tips and Tricks class, it’s not required for you to take it. Just bring a lineart or sketch and your eagerness to learn!

All information about the classes will be below!

PLEASE NOTE: In this class I will be using Adobe Photoshop during my process. Having a tablet with a stylus is essential for this course to be completed smoothly.


Digital Illustration: Underpainting Made Easy

Class Description:

For this class you will need a graphics tablet (or tablet with pen stylus)!

Ever wanted to enhance your coloring and make it more dramatic without having to fuss over un-harmonized colors? Then join me in this class to learn how I create the under-paintings of my illustrations.

Over the years, I have learned and collected multiple different rendering techniques from many artists. After learning and studying how other artists create their forms, I began to combine the ones that looked the best for my illustrations. The best part about this method is that after you finish your under painting, you can either declare yourself done or continue to refine the drawing further! Not only that, it allows for colors to harmonize naturally without much editing later. For the best results, it’s helpful to be aware of color theory and how it works. However, even if you don’t know that much about it, you can still achieve amazing results by following what looks good to you. While this is a continuation of my first class,  Digital Illustration: Sketching Tips and Tricks to Digitizing Your Creative Process, it is not required to complete this course.

Join me in this class to expand and learn a new easy method of under painting!

Digital Illustration: Refine with Overpainting and Effects

Class Description:

Prerequisite class: Digital Illustration: Underpainting Made Easy

Want to take your underpainting to the next level? As a continuation from Underpainting Made Easy, I’ll bring you through the final steps of completing your illustration.

With this class, you can further enhance your drawing through the application of over painting and special effects.

My idea of over painting is to add the final layers of “paint” (color) through new layers and the use of layer modes. By using layers in this fashion, it gives you the opportunity to define your shapes and add edges to your image with style! Including special effects can add even more depth and make it look more appealing than it was before. Not only will I go over how to overpaint, but I will also show you some finishing touches on how I make my drawings look clean and professional!

Please make note that it is required for you to complete Underpainting Made Easy to follow the lessons in this class.

Having a tablet with a stylus is essential for this course to be completed smoothly.
