Even if you’re confident with a pencil and paper, digital linework in Photoshop is a challenging skill to master. Instead of repeating the common advice to ‘just practice’, I’ve broken the challenge down into individual skills. Part 1, “Gesture”, starts in an unexpected place: loose scribbles. The series guides you through a set of exercises ranging from simple drills to gestural photo studies. To keep everyone on the same page, the download also includes my set of natural media Photoshop brushes.
If you’re looking to improve your digital linework, “Gesture” is an essential first step!
