In this 20-tutorial course, by artist Siobhan Twomey, you are introduced to the art of drawing in the digital domain. You learn about industry-standard software options like Adobe's Photoshop and Flash. You also explore tools like the Wacom tablet. But most of all you get a solid education in the two kinds of digital drawing technologies that employ either bitmap or vector-based technologies.
Siobhan explains the different digital bitmap "tools" like brushes, layers, color pickers, pens, anchor points, lassos and more. Next, she contrasts this with a primer on vector graphic drawing techniques like image tracing, as well as fills and gradients.
If you're an analog artist looking to move into the digital world, or if you're new to digitally created art, this course will give you a solid foundation upon which you can build your own artistic workflow. So put down that pencil, grab a stylus and watch this very enjoyable course by our favorite art instructor, Siobhan Twomey.
