Phase two: Editing a scan to perfection

In this exclusive preview of his upcoming Illustrator CS5 One-on-One: Advanced course, lynda.com author Deke McClelland shares six phases in the creation of an authentic five-by-three-foot pirate flag. In today’s episode, Deke uses Photoshop to adjust, distort, and otherwise refine an ink drawing into a work of compositional perfection. Look for the full course to be released in its entirety later this year. Phase three will be online tomorrow.

Topics include:

• Editing artwork and filling in missing details • Flipping a drawing to reveal its defects • Reforming artwork with the Liquify command

See part one, Sketching.
