Illustration: Design an editorial image (intermediate) | Freepik course trailer_ENG

About the course
In this course, we’ll be developing an illustration to accompany an informative text. We’ll be searching the Net to get inspired and find the idea we want for the text and our illustration. In this case, we’ll be working with a fixed color palette, which we’ll be using for laying out our illustration in Photoshop.

Which project are we going to develop?
Once we have the text from a newspaper or magazine, we’re going to start developing an initial sketch for the layout and, after that, we’ll be working with shapes and textures.

What you'll learn:

Working with CMYK format for printing
Adapting our illustration to a text
Applying texture to colors with selections
Choosing a typography and modifying the size for the layout in Photoshop
Applying the composition to mock up
Who is this course for? Requirements
This course is for those who want to give the editorial illustration a try and prove their ability to create illustrations based on a text and adapt them to its content.

If you want to discover some secrets of editorial coloring in Photoshop, there’s no doubt that this course is for you. Plus, you’ll get insights into the creation of illustrations for the press. You’ll need:
Graphic tablet

Illustration: Design Characters Based on Ancient Cultures (intermediate) | Freepik course trailer_EN

About this course

Taking references from diverse mediums is key when coming up with new ideas for artworks, whether illustration, design or motion graphics. The realm of Character Design also benefits from reference gathering and reinterpretation. In this tutorial, I'll guide you on the way to create a brand new character, taking inspiration and references from ancient cultures. We'll not only work on the aesthetic part of the character, but we'll also give it some background and purpose.

What project are we going to develop?

We are going to develop a brand new character, based on references taken from the ancient culture of your choice. I'll guide you through various steps, from selecting the appropriate references to creating a relevant color palette which reminds us of the culture from which the character originated.

Who’s this course for? Requirements

This tutorial will focus more on the character creation rather than on illustration techniques and tips, so some basic knowledge of the software is required. The software I'll be using is Photoshop CC 2015 but any previous version will work as well. For the illustration part, I'll be using a graphics tablet since I work free hand.

Monoline Illustration In Adobe Illustrator

Monoline Illustration is a great technique for creating really modern, minimalistic illustrations that can be used for a wide variety of applications. Because of their vector nature, they can easily be used for logos, branding, editorial, web, icons, and just about any purpose you might have for an illustration. In this class I will be showing you my process from references images, to finding inspiration, sketching, and finally, vectorizing the art in Adobe Illustrator. This class is aimed for Intermediate users of Adobe Illustrator, but even beginners may be able to follow along as I do not use many tools in the software. However, there is a lot to learn in the idea and sketch phase as well!I hope you will check out the class and let me know what you think! Make sure to go to my profile and follow me at to see more.

Animation: Give life to a Jumping Reindeer (advanced) | Freepik

In this video tutorial we'll create a character rig for animation using puppet pin tools and a free plugin called DUIK in After Effects. We'll use a character made in Illustrator and take it into After Effects for animation. The workflow will help us understand the process of creating bones and controls for our character, just like a puppet, so we can move its arms or legs for basic keyframe animation. It's a step by step guide which, although is a little complex, can be comfortably followed by any beginner as well. So, let’s get started!
