Are you ready to ink & paint in Illustrator?
In Ink & Paint, an instant-access self-paced workshop, Laura Coyle gives a detailed demonstration of the two primary inking and painting tools in Illustrator: the Paintbrush Tool, and the Blob Brush Tool. You’ll learn about the settings for getting the most out of these tools with a pressure sensitive Wacom tablet. Laura thoroughly discusses Calligraphic brushes and shows you the steps for creating a set of brushes to use for linework and coloring. A pen tablet is required for this workshop.
With this foundation, you’ll be ready to follow along with Laura as she guides you through a complete, fun, floral art project that includes Laura’s original tracing art and a custom color palette. In the preview video below, Laura demonstrates how to use the Eraser tool.
