When it gets quiet in these parts you know that Michelle and I have been up to something, usually something big and usually something good! We wanted to share a peek into our new Skillshare class! We won’t be launching it until November but we are super excited to let you know when the time comes the new (and HUGE) lettering resource we have teamed up with to do a giveaway of the class with.
This is actually going to be a first in a series of classes we have dubbed ‘Hidden Photoshop’, we have found some buried Photoshop treasures that allow you to do things like this super amazing one click watercolor effect! There are many little gems in Photoshop that most people aren’t aware of and we can’t wait to share them with you. We love demystifying PS, because it really isn’t as daunting as it seems and armed with a little knowledge you can create a whole myriad of wonderful things! The class will come with the exact palette and effect shown above for you to to download (free) and play with when you take the class. We have been experimenting with this technique for months now and are thrilled to finally be able to get the class + tools to you soon!
Is this crazy fun or what? These eyelashes were drawn with a pen and the watercolor effect was added, in my humble opinion I think it looks pretty darn realistic! For those that may be shouting at the screen to just pick up a watercolor brush, yes, you can (and we hope you do at some point in your life, because it’s a ton of fun) but this is just a fun technique and skill to add to your design arsenal–it’s quick, it’s non-destructive and there’s no clean-up! We have played with this on fonts, lettering, logo mock-ups, backgrounds, you name it all to great results. We will send out a note when the class is available, along with a discount for new sign-ups to Skillshare (at the time of this writing it’s .99 for 3 months and you cancel before the 3 months is up if you so choose), that would give you plenty of time to take all of our classes and then some! I am sure we will be back this week with some other random goodie for you!
