Digitizing is all about practice and applying the foundation you learn into different techniques. This lesson continues on where the last lesson left off… we’ve included five new design projects which all create slightly different looks based on the artwork and medium.
Each design has been posted as a separate video lesson so you can work on each one independently, making it easy to complete the entire lesson before moving onto the next. I will give you introductions for each so we can assess the artwork, come up with a plan, and then we’ll load the design into the program and start digitizing.
Once you’ve worked through all five designs you will have successfully learned to control your inputs at the selected scale within the software. Inputting stitches to create just the right amount of detail will at this point start to feel like second nature, and you will now be equipped for the next lesson which will explore more realism and blending colors.
The run time on these 5 videos is approximately 70-80min dependent on the software. Because these are Interactive lessons, the user will be following along, pausing and playing thru the process of digitizing the exercises. You can expect the time spent completing all the exercises within this and all our lessons will undoubtedly take many hours. Please keep in mind that there are many factors which will determine how fast each individual is, remember this is not a race.
