Graphic Thumbnail

Lesson 1 in Concept Art Hacks

Lesson Information

In this first Lesson, you will get a tour through Steve's Photoshop setup, his process for collecting and organizing references, and finally his style for sketching graphic thumbnails. These most basic sketches will only use two values: black and white. The goal is to create this preliminary content as quickly as possible, setting the stage for future artwork later in the Course with maximum efficiency.

So grateful for this course so far. Two questions: 1. Would using View>Flip Horizontal work as a better alternative to Flip Canvas; 2. How was the create color dodge layer shortcut set up? As an action?

Hey Magnus! You can do it by going into your brush settings > shape dynamics > Angle and change the control to rotation.  The other way is to get a wacom art pen, it has a Rotation: 0 - 360°. Hope it helped.
