Phase three: Adding contrast and color
In this exclusive preview of his upcoming Illustrator CS5 One-on-One: Advanced course, lynda.com 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.
