Learn how to take bitmap textures created in Photoshop, and then use them in Adobe Illustrator to add an authentic surface texture to any vector painting.
- [Voicemail] So in this illustration I want to show you…the process of creating this illustration.…Now, some people have asked me…well why don't you just go through the whole process…and we just watch ya?…Well, that would actually be a movie longer…than the whole course itself,…longer than a bunch of my courses put together,…so it's kind of unrealistic to do that.…So what I'm gonna do is show you key aspects…of creating this illustration,…but not only when the illustration's done…in its final form with all the brushwork in place,…but how I use textures with this illustration…and just to add that final touch to it.…
Now, you saw me hand create the textures…that I'm gonna use in this illustration.…In a previous movie where I took a toothbrush…and I splattered ink on paper…and then you saw me turn that into actual…texture assets in Photoshop,…how I adjusted those levels in order to create…different iterations of that texture.…And I'm using those exact textures…that I created with this artwork in its final form,…but it all starts off in sketch stage as showing here.…
