Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Creating Commercial Illustrations.
- If you are a Premium member of lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. Now here's the way they work. In the folder for the exercise files, you'll see that the different chapters are in there. Opening up one of those chapters, you'll see all the different movies that make up that chapter. So, we'll go into, let's say, "04". Now, what you are seeing here is the last step. Whatever we did in "03", where we left off, that's where you pick up on "04", so then you can continue and you can see that in the little icon there that the image is starting to build up itself.
I have also provided all the finals for that chapter. Now, these are just purely for your own reference, but there you'll see the end results, like "15" will have the "bulb", that's the last movie, and that's for the cover...well, there it is. There's the final pieces all the way through, so you can go in there and study how this all works. Now, if you are a monthly member or an annual member of lynda.com, you don't have access to these exercise files, but you can follow along from scratch with your own assets.
But even if you are a Premium and have access to these files, I strongly suggest that you use your own assets. It gives you a better understanding working with your own files of how to put it all together, and eventually you're not going to be doing these exercises, you're going to be actually doing work for yourself or for a client, and you'll have to work with your own assets, so it's the best way to learn is to really use your own stuff. So now, let's have some fun learning, and let's get started.
