If you've never used Photoshop before or have been trying to figure out the program and are frustrated - I've got you! I've taught people ages ten to seventy how to use Photoshop and I've developed techniques to break down complicated steps and even make the program fun to use. 

Heres what the class covers:

  • The basics of the program:
    • How to open files 
    • How to save and what different file types mean
    • How to scan (helpful if you’re using old photographs)
    • Changing the file size and cropping
    • Easy tricks to enhance photographs by adjusting colors and contrast
    • Making an image black and white
    • Fixing blemishes, scratches, and red-eye in old photos
    • Building good habits so you can advance in the program
       

My first Skillshare course!!

I created my first course for Skillshare!! 

I learned a TON about filming and editing and I'm already planning new courses so make sure to follow me on Skillshare so you know when I post something new.

If you've never heard of Skillshare, it's a monthly subscription website with millions of students and teachers. Teachers post video courses on everything from cooking, knitting, business, and all kinds of art. The classes are project based so you will finish the class having created something new. You can connect with other people taking your class and the teacher. You can take as many classes as you want.

My class provides step-by-step instructions to created detailed illustrations. This course focuses on coloring detailed hand-drawn illustrations and it will take you through all the steps from sketching to saving for web or print. Advanced techniques are used, but the step-by-step instructions are suitable for beginners, Photoshop experts, and everyone in between. A lot of options are discussed so that you can create a unique and original illustration. You will find your personal style of working with Photoshop and learn to have fun and be creative with the program.

Digitally Coloring Hand-Drawn Art & Isolating Line Work

This is a tutorial I made about some techniques I've adapted from other tutorials on how to digitally color my drawings. I like the look of hand-drawn ink illustrations, but watercolor doesn't give me the effects I want. So, I've taught myself some simple ways to add color digitally to get the look I want. 

This tutorial covers some techniques I've learned from other artists. I digitally color my handmade ink drawings using two different techniques. First is a simple multiply and paint technique. The second part of the tutorial shows how to isolate line work so that the drawing can be digitally colored without using multiply.
