Join Angie Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Sketching roughs in Adobe Draw, part of Motion Graphic Design: Composition.
- [Narrator] Another Adobe app that I use a lot…is Adobe Draw.…And I like to use that to create some drawings,…sort of vector drawings, to go straight into Illustrator.…So what I'm going to do is create a new project…and I'm going to choose iPad Pro landscape.…And then I'm going to select my Apple Pencil,…which is what I like to use with my iPad Pro to draw.…And as you can see I've got a selection…of different brushes down the side here,…and as I click on each of them I can control things…like the size, the diameter, the opacity,…and the color.…So I'm going to choose a blue color…and them I'm going to just start drawing.…
What I want to do is, first of all,…start by drawing a circle for the head of my character.…Now, I can draw a circle freehand, like that.…So I can undo that and I can choose basic shapes…from my app shapes.…But what I'm going to do is start sketching,…so let's start by just sketching out a rough layout.…So will put a circle here,…and that's going to be the head of one of the characters.…And then we'll have the head…
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.
