Also known as paint pouring, flow art, liquid art.etc.

Is a form of abstract art that uses acrylic paints with a runny (fluid)consistency. The acrylic paints react with each other when combined together  to make interesting and visually  organic motifs. This type of art is fun for all ages. Fluid acrylics can be used on many types of substrates and in many different forms such as pouring, dripping, swirling, glazing, dipping and many other effects. Fluid art opens up a lot of possibilities and is definitely worth exploring and adding to your artist tool belt. In this course I will teach you everything you will need to become a paint pouring artist. I will share with you:

* Please Note! If you like a lot of talking this course may not be for you. When I create art I get in a trance like state and talking interrupts my flow. I do some voice over introductions and descriptions here and there but this course is heavy on visual content. I do a lot of pop ups on the screen that are full of helpful information and descriptions and I supply you with written resources as well.

  • How to set up your paint pouring studio on a budget
  • complete supplies list
  • share all the techniques that I use like; dirty pour flip cup, puddle pours, swipe technique and more.

I will show you how to properly handle and care for your art

I will show you how to protect your artwork

The bonus section will have plenty of resources to refer to with information about mixing ratios, paint density and more

 Bonus Video footage of 16 minutes raw studio experiments with swipe technique!

Some of the videos are just me working with little or no talking. FYI

*NOTES:

  • The current price is an introductory rate, and will go up as more lectures are added.

What You Will Learn

By the end of this course you will feel comfortable painting in Photoshop using various different techniques. You will also have a good understanding of PS tools and workflows in general. Specifically, I will be demonstrating how to paint a simple "watercolor" portrait from start to finish, but along the way you will pick up on many other techniques that will help you to feel comfortable coming up with your own unique creations. I also discuss techniques for different kinds of paint like oil and acrylic. The course is meant to give you a comprehensive introduction to digital painting while following along with my project.

Course Structure

  • In this course we will start from the beginning, for those of you who are not familiar with PS. I will go over the UI basics, show how to download PS if you need to, and go over which pen tablet is best for you. There is a link to a fantastic buyers guide if you don't already have a pen tablet input device (They are absolutely necessary to do any serious painting in PS. Cost: $30 - $500 -- cheap ones work fine for this course).
  • Next I will show you the basic techniques of mimicking different kinds of paint, and continue to teach you about the various tools in PS and how to use them.
  • The next section will go over how to setup our file and our layers in order to be ready for painting. By this point we will also have our custom brushes ready, and our UI optimized for painting.
  • Finally, we will start laying down some paint on our digital "canvas". You will watch me paint in real time while I explain my thought process and the PS tools that I am using. I will also throw in some time lapse video of me painting, so you can see the entire process.
  • To finish of the course, you will be instructed how to polish off your painting with some finishing touches. We will go over things like texture overlays, adjustment layers, blending modes, etc.

Procreate is an amazing digital art app on iPad for sketching, drawing, finished illustrations, and painting. It's an incredibly flexible application that total beginners or seasoned professionals can use to make digital art!

My name is Kurt, and I use Procreate in my professional work at Image Comics as well as my own digital paintings. I've been creating tutorials and online courses since 2013 teaching thousands of students worldwide about digital art. 

Procreate is a bit like a piano. If you know the basics, you can play Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star or, with a little practice, you might play some Beethoven! There are so many hidden gestures, functions, and features that take a full advantage of iPad's multi-touch features in a way that is simply impossible on Android or Windows devices. 

The course is designed to show you how to get the most of Procreate in an easy-to-follow, step-by-step way. I've covered the basic tools in my course The Beginner's Guide to Digital Art with Procreate, and this course takes it all a step further and really dives deep into Procreate's tools and gestures. 

There are several sections that focus on different areas of the application. Here are a few examples: 

  • Layer functions
    • Alpha lock - never worry about going outside the lines again! 
    • Reference - select your flat colors without switching layers!
    • Masking - a super-powerful digital art tool! 
  • Drawing and painting tricks
    • Quickline - Draw straight lines without a ruler at perfect angles!
    • Add textures to your work and control where they go. 
    • Paint with the Smudge tool. Even paint with the eraser!
  • Little-known gestures galore!
  • Control how the Filters & Adjustments affect your work with great accuracy. 

In each lesson, I'll go over how a function works, then show you how you can use it in your own art. Many of Procreate's functions are MUCH more powerful than most users realize. 

I'll also include:

  • the Procreate file I work on throughout the course
  • the Procreate file from two of my own digital paintings with all the layers, so you see exactly how these techniques work from the inside out. This also includes the time-lapse playable within Procreate. You can fast-forward, rewind and zoom to see the process of creating it! Very helpful.
  • a copy of the texture we'll create during the course

So join me! I'd love to help you get get the most out of my favorite digital art app for iPad! See you inside! :)
