Are you a creative individual? Do you want to create artwork that inspires people? Or perhaps you want to learn how to edit images or create art assets to be used in game worlds? Maybe you want to paint landscapes or environment concepts? Whatever your needs, if it is Digital Art related then this course is for you!
We start this Digital Art with Photoshop short-course with the basics of the Photoshop software and how to use a drawing tablet to create your artwork. We then discuss the basics of digital painting, creating your own custom game textures, painting 2D sprites and UV map painting. We cover colour theory and colour harmony, choosing a complementary colour palette, shades, tints and tones of colour and how they interact.
We also cover digital drawing basics, perspective drawing and methods employed to create pleasing compositions. We cover topics such as creating environments that appear realistic, drawing characters and working with custom brushes.
No prior knowledge or skills in digital drawing are required to study this course.
