LINEWORK

An introduction on how to get the best out of your linework, removing traditional linework from a white background, digital inking and line settings in photoshop.

FLATTING OUT

How to lay out flats for a piece, with an emphasis on flare or speed. Layer management techniques.

COLOURS

The main section of the talk. An explanation of colour temperature, lighting and applying colours. Brush settings and tools explained.

SPECIAL EFFECTS

Texture effects for metal and cloth, hair and skin, how to make your own brush, ambient lighting techniques and quick and easy backgrounds. Finishing touches and adjustment for print.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS SESSION

The tutorial will conclude with a brief questions and answers session and attendees will be provided with a print out cheat sheet and access to the working Photoshop file used in the demonstration, so they can take it apart at home and continue to learn. I also hope to be able to film one of these tutorials, so attendees can watch it again later.
