From the Beginner designer to Intermediate one – 1

As a beginner designer:

 

  • Do you feel frustrated when you are creating art, but the finished work is nothing like the one in your head before?
  • Compared with other artist’s fancy work, your art is simple, flat and you only can manipulate shapes and lines with the basic moves.
  • Are you amazed by beautiful, complex, and perfect patterns by other artists, you never thought of before.

 

If you are the one who is struggling under the situations as above, I would recommend to you a handy software to solve your problems. You could increase the level of your design; but most importantly is that it is easy to use with only several taps, and you can get the art by what you have seen or what you want to do.

The magic software is called Adobe Capture CC. Personal I love all design software by Adobe, but this one is my favourite. With it, I finished most of my design exercises.

Adobe Capture CC could help users design their unique shapes, font, colour theme, 3D materials, patterns and brushes, all the design element you made are saved to your personal Adobe account in your library or template. Furthermore, I will explain all the functions in my blog.

Let’s start together with the easiest, most practical tool: the colours.

 

The purpose of colours is to help the user choose the colour theme from a picture or in their real life.

The way to create your colours is simple: click on “+” to start new colours, and make a choice that where the colours sources from picture or you could use your camera to take the picture of the colours you want. Immediately, there will be several dots that show on your pictures, and you drag the dots to the exact colours you like and save this. The colour swatch will update to Adobe library automatically, you can use in Photoshop, Illustrator and so on.

For example, if you were required to draw a tiger in your design, you could Google the picture of a real tiger, and save the colours to your library, then you can have a vivid tiger without any colour difference from real one in your art now.

For the next post, I will elaborate more on the brushes with helpful tips.

  1. Hi Moyin,
    Thanks for recommending this product! I have also recently discovered Adobe Capture, but I did not know about taking colours from photos to create a colour scheme. I am guessing you have to have an adobe account to use this software? (I am asking for a friend.) I wonder if you could use these tools without paying for the Adobe suite. Also, do you know if you can share these colour schemes with other people? Say, if you were collaborating on a project? Anyways, I am very excited to see what tips or tools you will write about next.
