Even though most of my work is digital I still spend a lot of time painting with traditional media, in particular, gouache and watercolour.  There is a huge market for it, so it's always a good idea to build your skills in this area.  And it's so much fun!  
So in this class, we are going to paint some icons using a medium of your choice.  It might be Gouache, watercolour or whatever else you enjoy painting with. We will then scan those in and create a simple pattern in Photoshop.
What you'll learn:
I'll take you step by step through the following:
Finding inspiration
Sketching icons
Painting icons
Transferring them to Photoshop
Removing backgrounds and isolating each icon on a separate layer.
Creating a repeating grid pattern in Photoshop
Who this class is for:
This class is for those who work in traditional media and want to learn about surface pattern design.  I will take you through most of the basic skills required in photoshop, but If you need a little extra help with Photoshop, I recommend first doing my class  "10 Photoshop Tips for Surface Designers", where I teach you some of the basics of Photoshop, specific for illustrators and Surface Designers.
