Join Angie Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Coloring artwork in Adobe Draw, part of Motion Graphic Design: Composition.
- [Instructor] Adobe Draw is great for drawing.…It's also great for coloring your artwork.…Now obviously I could use a brush,…so I could select this brush, choose a color…so let's click on our colors, go to my color library,…change libraries, go to creative cap and advert,…and we'll choose the colors that I created earlier.…So I'm going to start with a blue color,…and if I click and hold on that shape,…you'll see it just colors the shape with one action,…which is a really great way of coloring the element.…So I'm then going to go back and choose a different color,…so let's go back to my colors and we'll choose,…say, the red color, and I'm going to go into…this layer here with the character's arms…and draw in that color there.…
Now at the moment I've not got full opacity,…so I'm going to change my opacity settings,…click on opacity, and let's just dial it up to 100…and click on that again.…Okay, and we'll do the same with the bottom layer…so let's go back to here, choose my color,…which was that one, make sure it's 100% opacity…
In this course, learn about the most important principles of composition and how to use them in your designs. Instructor Angie Taylor puts these principles in context by taking you though the development of an online advertisement, and showcasing the different techniques used throughout her workflow. She demonstrates how to capture colors, patterns, and shapes using the Adobe Capture app; develop your rough ideas into layers that are ready for animating; compose design elements in After Effects; and create 3D artwork with Cinema 4D and After Effects.
