Welcome to Digital Inking In Photoshop. In this course you’ll learn some cool techniques to help you create digital line work. Throughout the course we will be covering the Pen Tool and how to use tangents and anchors to create smooth and unbroken lines, as well as how to create depth using only black, whites and grays.

1.1 Introduction

Hello, my name is Tyler and I'll be your instructor for this course. I've been in the industry for over 14 years now, and I've had the pleasure of working with companies such as Disney Publishing, WMS Games, the Marketing Store, Sock Puppet Studios, and many others. In that time, I've realized that time is of the essence for every illustrator and artist. And so what I did was create a technique that allows us to digitally ink in Photoshop and save tons of time while allowing us to create crisp clean art that can be used for various purposes. The goal is to get you acclimated in Photoshop very quickly, show you the tools, and allow you to use them in whatever way you think would be best to beef up your portfolio. Once you get the hang of the techniques and the tools you'll be able to add one other arrow to your quiver and you'll become a much faster artist, which will allow you to do more work in a much shorter time period. We're gonna talk about the pen tool. We're gonna talk about paths. We're also gonna talk about the action tools. And we're gonna combine some techniques to help you mimic some of the industry standards for artists who use pens and paper, but also allowing you to pick up another tool in Photoshop. That's pretty helpful. I'll be the first to admit I spent most of my career running from the Pen tool. But after figuring out this workflow, it's become my best friend. So hopefully you guys who don't use it very often will fall in love with the Pen tool also. Now one thing to remember. Your project doesn't have to end up like my project. As long as you can grasp the techniques and use them properly you're good to go. So let's go ahead. Let's get started and let's have some fun
