A college course using Photoshop to render realistic environments, products & more. For beginners as well as advanced PSD users.

           PLEASE WATCH THE 6 VIDEOS BELOW

    Unlike most Photoshop tutorials, this is a comprehensive course designed to achieve a specific goal. That goal is to teach you how to use Photoshop as an illustration tool. It is not intended to give an overview of every tool PS offers (there are plenty of tutorials out there that do that). The lessons in this course specifically focus on the tools needed to do professional 2D illustrations. They are also designed to build on themselves in order to give you a solid foundation for illustrating just about anything you want no matter how complex.

$95.00 and above

In addition to everything in the $65.00 package, backers will also receive a CD hard copy with hundreds of Brushes, Seamless Patterns, Swatches and Gradients. They will be a collection of high quality presets related to this industry that I have made and/or collected over the years. No junk! For example...

PATTERNS will include different categories (all seamless) like brick, stone, tile, flooring, glass block, shingles, window mullions, water, wood siding...

BRUSHES will include brush sets for doing different kinds of stitching, along with leaves, grass, clouds, trees, bushes, carpet, glass highlights...

SWATCHES will mostly include color sets that work in conjunction with different brushes like oranges and browns for doing fall leaves, or shades of greens that work for a grass brush indicating a health lawn as apposed to colors to make grass look distressed. 

GRADIENTS will include presets to help with light logic, along with metal, buttons, sky, water and more.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

$150 and above

In addition to everything in the $95.00 package, backers will also be able to have personal Skype *video chats with me.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The biggest challenge for me is making sure the lessons are easy to understand for my students and backers. I want my demos to be clear and precise and to anticipate questions before they are asked.

Another challenge is the December delivery date. I know I can do it, but depending on the backers support (assuming it gets funded) will determine how much time I can devote to this project. The more funding, the more time and freelance help I can afford. One way or the other it will get done, no matter how many late nights and weekends it takes.

As far as risks go, there really aren't any. I have made tutorial videos before which can be seen for FREE by going to my website (see above).
