What story would you like to tell the world? Surrealism is a style that allows you to express your feelings and thoughts on the world through your art.
In our new course, Surreal Digital Painting, you'll learn how to create a symbolic painting inspired by real-life events.
What You’ll Learn
First you'll learn what surrealism is and how it can be applied to your art, and then you'll explore the techniques that many professional artists use to create strong, meaningful works.
As the course progresses, Envato Tuts+ instructor Melody Nieves will show you how to create your own surrealistic painting from start to finish. Get ready to develop your storytelling potential and learn some great digital painting techniques.
