New Skillshare class

Skillshare class

Hello everyone!

I have a new Skillshare class!

This Skillshare class is all about painting watercolor birds and flowers! It’s perfect for beginners as you don’t need any extra skills to paint these simple compositions. The class covers everything from sketching to adding final details, so you’ll get an in-depth idea of how these things are painted. I have tried not to speed up the class too much, so that you can paint with me.

Click here to watch the class!

Supplies:

  • Watercolor paper 190gsm or higher
  • Round brushes No. 6 and one in smaller size – either 0 or 1
  • A pencil and an eraser for sketching
  • Watercolor paints (either liquid, tubes or pans)

In the end, just pick up whatever you have. It’s not about spending hundreds of dollars for the project, but just starting with whatever you have access to.

Let’s paint some birds!

Let’s illustrate a Character in Adobe Illustrator

Character Illustrate

In this tutorial, we will illustrate a flat design – cute boy using Adobe Illustrator. Flat design is designing things with basic shapes, but convey the message the same way as any other form of design. Flat designs are pretty nice to look at and have been my favorite mode of design for a while now.

In this tutorial,

  • First we will draw the outlines of the character
  • Next, we will choose a color palette based on our idea of how the final piece should look like
  • In the end, we will replace our outlines with the chosen colors and make modifications to make sure the character is cute and looks great!

Illustrate

The tools used in this tutorial:

  • The shapes – rectangle, ellipse, rounded rectangle and line segments
  • The ‘draw inside’ option
  • We will learn to group and ungroup, send to back and send to front features, and editing transparency
  • We will be using pathfinder, especially the unite and divide options
  • Layers, color palettes will also be covered

Color Palette:

(Save the image and open in Illustrator. Use the Eyedropper tool to pick colors)

You can export the character as a PNG and use on any surface or medium (logos, blog headers etc). You can also add a text underneath the character to create a card for any occasion.
