Never painted digitally before? You don't need a lot of special equipment to get started, just some creative ideas, a computer, and the right software. John Derry will help you learn the rest: mixing paint, working with layers and brushes, using color creatively, and sketching. He also covers uniquely digital techniques, such as dipping a paintbrush into a photograph or painting with cloning. Even if you've never picked up a conventional paintbrush, the techniques in this course will help you start creating your own unique works of art.

Topics include:

  • Customizing mouse behaviors
  • Using a pen tablet
  • Painting with Painter, Photoshop, or apps like Procreate 2
  • Working with brushes
  • Using layers as a compositional tool
  • Painting from life
  • Using a photograph as your paint
  • Clone painting
