Seamless Vector Repeat Pattern Texture for Backgrounds in Illustrator About This Class

Hey there! Have you seen all the cool vector Illustration that’s being enhanced with texture?  Texture can be a really simple way of adding interest to your design, whether it be an illustration or a pattern. One of the simplest ways of adding texture to your surface pattern designs is by using vectorized patterns you create from scratch. This course focuses on the creation of the textures with the end goal being the use of these in other repeating patterns, though they can be used for anything!

About This Class

Take a look in your sketchbook for inspiration to create your own digital pattern which can be adapted for pattern design. This class will focus on taking an initial sketchbook painting or drawing, re-arranging it as necessary in Photoshop, re-inking the line drawing, and finally, creating a diamond half-drop repeat pattern. This class will also include automation processes which can be used in the future to streamline the process and make it much faster.

Learn Photoshop Brushes and settings About This Class

Grab that piece of line art you have lying around that's been gathering dust and let's start recycling! I want to show you a great way to create a mixed media art piece…and we will do that digitally! Throughout the class, I will be giving you tours of my own sketchbook practice, with natural media, and explain how it feeds my commercial work. Knowing how the real thing feels helps me do a better job with the digital brushes, and I know how to advise you to capture the essence of mixed media work in digital form. This is a great introduction to painting in Photoshop, as well as Kyle’s brushes.

Turn Passion to Profits using the Adobe Design to Print Extension in Photoshop - full instructional video class About This Class

As designers, we channel our creative energies towards making a living. We are always subtly trying to influence viewers to be favourably inclined toward buying either a product we create featuring our art or clients paying for our artistic skills. Many of us also create art for the simple satisfaction of bringing beauty into the world. And there is nothing quite as exciting as seeing our artwork in print, especially if it is on a physical object made purely for the enjoyment of the viewer. That is my motivation for bringing you this new course, Passion to Profits using the Adobe Design to Print Extension.

Lucrative trend Forecasting for Creating high Demand Wall Art - Optimized Workflow for Pattern Design -  full instructional video classes About This Class

Have you been wondering how to create artwork that will become desired and in demand? Do you want to add to your income by producing gorgeous, large wall art pieces? This class will help you figure out a strategy for doing that…midst the pandemic; the biggest disruption to modern life in many generations, it may sound frivolous to talk about something as ‘trivial’ as wall décor and colour. But with so many people struggling with the fear that economic uncertainty, isolation and endangered health brings, these may well be the most transformative experiences in their homes right now. The home, and everything we seek to bring into it, becomes an opportunity for either soothing and healing, or prompting joyful emotions. We use art and colour to shape our environments to deliver specific experiences, whether that is to calm us and make us feel safe, or to inspire and delight our senses. Ironically, on-line art sales are booming and home décor has become a hot topic.

Pattern Design in Photoshop - full instructional video class About This Class

Textile Designer for Adobe Photoshop CC is a new set of tools for fabric and surface pattern designers to help demystify the process of designing seamless pattern repeat prints. Now, from within Photoshop, there is an automated process for creating the repeats, while keeping every element editable until you are ready to send it to your printer. Adobe Textile Designer lets you create a print that repeats on a basic grid, a horizontal brick, or a vertical drop. You will see your work in situ of the repeat and the effect of changes you make are live, on screen! Do you need to fill a void on the edges of your tile? Adobe Textile Designer provides a quick fix that allows for element continuation beyond the edge of the main tile and wraps them around to the other side for a seamless result. And there are no calculations to make! It’s automatic! This new plugin includes panels for previewing patterns, experimenting with repeat styles, defining separations and setting colorways. And guess what? This extension is completely free!
