From Line Art To Brushed Illustration

I found this tutorial online and set it up as a pdf for easier following. Its great because it goes from beginner illustration and the tools to learn through basic color design and then into shading. All along learning more tools and techniques and learning how to illustrate, shade and use color concepts to complete the design. This is a great assessment to see how students have developed over the course of the assignment. At the same time I have found that this assignment gives students vast knowledge of Photoshop Basics and Color Theory. This assignment can be developed along with the full vector detail using Illustrator the Live Paint Bucket and Expanding Appearance the Shading in detail. Materials: Photoshop/Illustrator Scanner for Drawn Images An image set to scale A Wacom Tablet or Illustration Tablet if you have them The mouse and keyboard short cuts work too. Flashdrive
