I tried to create depth by expressing light coming from the upper right corner! I used blue as the base color and chose the red as the highlight!

I practiced the homework you gave me!!! I also practiced and applied the framing homework you gave me. It's not there yet, but I expressed it as if Toya was waiting for her master.

Your aesthetic color palette

Hi, my name is E3 and I am a freelance art director. I make various artwork from album work to posters, logos, and various goods. When you say “artwork,” many people think that you must have great skills and senses to create them. Not at all!

When I collect what you like and add your favorite colors to your own palette, it becomes an artwork. Why don't you create artwork with me that expresses yourself by focusing on your taste?

Just remember 3 things

Go with my favorite colors and objects ~ You only need to practice three big things when creating artwork with your own taste. It's about drawing ideas, combining colors, and layering and editing. I'm going to teach you these three techniques in the easiest and fastest way possible.

Record your inspiration and add imagination

Express the simple thoughts that come to your mind like writing and graffiti through text or pictures. There is no need to draw well, no need to draw seriously. Just record as the thoughts come up and you will be able to find out what you like and what shapes you draw often. Gather the records in one place and discover your taste! In this class, you’ll learn how to create artwork full of your personality.

Fill your images with colors

When working on artwork, the most difficult thing is color combination. I always struggle with how many colors to choose, which colors to choose, which colors work best, and more! For those of you who struggle with this as well, I will tell you everything from the basics of color to how to create the color of the mood you want. You can use the color correction tool to edit in your own colors! Learn how to edit!

Create natural artwork

It takes delicate practice to bring in various images and combine them naturally while making it feel like a single work of art! Learn how to use basic Photoshop tools to pick and combine elements naturally. If you practice with a total of 5 different examples, your skills will surely improve.

Furthermore, we will use the completed artwork to produce a variety of goods that are great for gifts. I will tell you all the tips for printing.

Create a portfolio with a clear concept

Finally, I'll show you how to create a portfolio with your own colors. I’ll show you how to choose a concept that can express you well, from how to develop that concept to how to incorporate it! I'll help you enrich your portfolio.

Fill your artwork with your favorite colors.

Q.What program will we work with?

A. I do almost all of my work in Adobe Photoshop cc version (Korean version). Sometimes I use Adobe Lightroom to edit photos I take to use them as a source! Classes are mostly going to be done in Photoshop :)

Q. I'm not good at using Adobe tools, can I still follow along?

A. Actually, we won’t cover all the tools that Photoshop has to offer. We will work with only the tools we need, so if you learn how to use these tools with me and repeatedly practice using the example videos, you will be proficient with the tools!

Q. I am an art major and want to learn more in-depth skills!

A. I majored in something similar, and I've also gone to a lot of academies and taken classes. How to use those tools to create artwork and the knowledge you gain through experience is most important :) There are also things that are not taught in the academy! I will tell you about the knowledge I have accumulated over the years.
