Phase three: Adding contrast and color

In this exclusive preview of his upcoming Illustrator CS5 One-on-One: Advanced course, author Deke McClelland shares six phases in the creation of an authentic five-by-three-foot pirate flag. In today’s episode, Deke uses Photoshop to make the base line art into three colors: rich black, blood red, and page white, with no dust or scratch in between. Look for the full course to be released in its entirety later this year. Phase four will be online tomorrow.

Topics include:

• Editing artwork and filling in missing details
• Flipping a drawing to reveal its defects
• Reforming artwork with the Liquify command

Part one: Sketching
Part two: Editing scanned line art
