Description

In this class, I want to show you how to make your own amazing and unique texture and use them directly in Adobe Illustrator.

It’s incredible how much texture can change the overall vibe of a digital illustration. It can really give it that organic handmade vintage look.

Adobe Photoshop already has so many brushes and textures that you can use, but if you are creating your illustrations in Adobe Illustrator like I do, it can be a bit challenging to constantly switch in between these programs. 

We will make our unique textures on paper using what we have at home, and we’ll quickly prepare and edit them in Adobe Photoshop and then we’ll create our illustration and apply those handmade textures in Adobe Illustrator.

Also, this class is beginner friendly, so just the basic knowledge of these 2 programs will be enough.

You already have everything you need, just bring your creativity and willingness to experiment and let’s start our little art exploration!

You will learn

For this project, you’ll be creating your own handmade textures and later applying them on your illustration.

To make the textures you’ll need:

  • A regular A4 printing paper, it’s good to have a lot of it
  • Some black paint, whatever paint you have at home will be fine ( it can be gouache, ink, tempera, acrylic, also, charcoal, pastels, pencils, etc)
  • Something to create those textures. So, here is where you can go crazy and curious and search your house to find some everyday objects that can create textures… options are endless. The more interesting objects you find the more unique textures you’ll get.

For preparing and using those textures you’ll need:

  • A scanner which is the best option or you can use your digital camera or a phone
  • Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator

I know that you can find already made textures online and download them, but it’s so much more rewarding when you do it by yourself, and having your own original textures will just help you level up your creativity and the quality of your artwork.

Also, once you learn how to do it, you’ll easily create custom textures for your illustrations whenever you need them. 

RESOURCES 

  • In the class resources, you’ll find my handmade textures that you can use to practice and test out this process.
  • For those of you that like to follow along to practice, I also added my prepared digital illustration of a teapot in the class resources. Feel free to use it to learn.
  • To complete your own digital illustration and see my process of converting sketches into vectors in a few simple steps head to my other Skillshare class: From Sketch to Vector: Digitize Your Sketches Using The Shape Builder Tool in Adobe Illustrator

I’m looking forward to seeing your projects!

Love,

Di Ujdi
