Description

Why on earth would you use Photoshop to illustrate with vector shapes? Isn’t that what Illustrator is for? For pure vector illustration, yes, use Illustrator. But if you’re working with both raster art and vectors in your illustration, Photoshop is the way to go. If you’re used to the pen tool in Illustrator, you’ll find a lot of similarities, but you’ll also encounter some differences that at first can be frustrating and confusing. That’s where this class comes in. Join illustrator Tom Froese as he guides you through the fundamental pen tool techniques he uses in his own work (and quite extensively in his other Skillshare classes such as Inky Illustrations and Inky Maps). This class is perfect for illustrators and hobbyists of all skill levels. While the content is rather technical, the skills you will obtain will be nothing short of magic. 

You will learn

How did you use your new pen tool wizard skills?

This class is meant to supplement Tom’s other classes, including: Inky Illustrations, Inky Maps, and Impress Me: Illustrating for Letterpress, so there is no specific project to complete.

Of course, if you used the skills and techniques learned in this class, share what you did here as a class project. It can be on one of the projects for one of the classes above, or from something else on Skillshare, or perhaps a personal project. 

I’m excited to see how you’ve used these pen tool wizard skills!
