What You’ll Be Creating

Adobe Photoshop is known as a great tool for artists, and not without reason. However, it doesn’t work as magically as some people may think. It won’t color and shade your picture on its own—you need to tell it what to do, of course. And you can’t do it if you don’t know it yourself!

In our free course, The Basics of Coloring and Shading Line Art in Adobe Photoshop, you’ll take a piece of line art and complete the coloring and shading to create a finished work of art.

The course consists of just nine bite-sized video lessons, so you can easily fit it in around your other commitments. And best of all, it’s free.

What You’ll Learn

In this short course, Monika Zagrobelna will teach you all the basics of coloring and shading, so that you can enter the world of digital painting.

If you don’t have a graphics tablet, you’ll also learn techniques that can make the work easier for you. You’ll start with some theory, and then you’ll use it to color and shade a dragon in flight. If you want, you can use your own line art!
