Courses - Photoshop 202
Description: Intermediate Photoshop
Running Time: 110 minutes
Pre-Requisites: Photoshop 201 strongly recommended
Versions:
We use Photoshop 7 in this class, but the lessons are valid for just about every version of Photoshop, including Elements. The concepts are the same regardless of Photoshop version.
 

This course teaches you how to freehand draw with brushes and make your own artwork. You will learn all about brushes, brush options, working with color, manipulating paint, and so on. We'll create a landscape drawing and make it look like a real chalk drawing on canvas.

Here are two hand-drawn samples from class:

  

These techniques are still very useful even for photo editing - you'll learn lots of good tricks for painting, working with color, using the different color tools (dodge, burn, smudge, etc.) that are very valuable editing photos as well as painting.

This is a pretty long class... almost 2 hours. I spent the first half teaching you the techniques used in this class, then the second half with a practical example - creating a "chalk" painting that looks like it's on real canvas - using those techniques. I had a good time recording this class, and I know you'll love learning with it.
