Tell Your Story: Halftone Illustration

ADVANCED CLASS: Turn a photo into an outlined halftone illustration

A Note From Your Wall: Tell Your Story

Hi there, Morning Glory! It's me, your wall talking. Please get out your camera and record some more stories. You'll thank me later for the reminder.

We love home decor. We love gracing our walls with meaningful, inspiring artwork. Create a gorgeous poster with me that reminds you to get that camera out and tell your story! In this ADVANCED Photoshop class I'll walk you through a great set of techniques you can use to create an outlined, halftone illustration from a photograph. You'll love this look, and I know you'll be able to use these techniques again and again! I can't wait to see you in class!

Our Goal: Learn Advanced Photoshop Techniques to Create A Poster

Your bare wall won't be bare long when you enroll in the Tell Your Story class. By learning to create outlined, halftone illustrations from photographs, you'll be able to create your very own poster sized piece of art for your walls! This is also a great home-warming, birthday or Christmas gift! Imagine the delight your friends and family will have when they open your gift and see the beautiful piece of art YOU created!

What To Expect in Class

This is a great start to some advanced Photoshop techniques. Together, we will go step by step to create your unique piece! Included in the course:

One-hour video lesson

High-resolution photograph of a camera

Photoshop color swatches

Premade layered poster .PSD

Love & Photoshop

During the one hour video lesson, we will go over and learn each of these techniques, step by step:

Create a halftone image from a photograph

Install color swatches

Recolor the halftone

Create an outline around the image edges

Use Photoshop filters to "find" the edges in the photo to outline them

Clean up and prep the image for dropping in to the premade poster .PSD

How To Prepare for Class

The prerequisite to this class is a good foundation in Photoshop. I recommend that you take at least my first three Photoshop classes (Digi Beginner's Bundle) before enrolling in this course. You'll need Photoshop CC or Photoshop CS6.
