In this series we’ll begin the process of learning to “paint” digitally in Photoshop. We’ll begin by making a set of custom brushes and putting them to use creating believably rendered forms. We’ll also explore how to make use of value, colour and texture to make stronger images and compositions.

In this series of tutorials we’ll go through the entire process of creating a kinetic typography video in After Effects. We’ll start by creating a storyboard in Photoshop and then creating graphic assets in Illustrator. We’ll then look at the best way to import those assets into After Effects. From there we’ll complete the animation in AE, where we’ll discuss workflow and important concepts like syncing audio and nesting animations. Download the source files and follow along.
