Liquidverve Coloring and Stylization for Portraits (3.0)
Welcome to my in-depth coloring and stylization course for portrait editing! This tutorial will introduce you to color theory and application in portrait editing, so you can build a strong foundation for creating your own style!
This tutorial is for you if:
You are looking to improve your understanding of how to shift colors, how to combine them into harmonies and palettes, and how to choose colors for an image! You can be completely new to stylization, or you can already be an intermediate/advanced colorist looking to refine your skills.
You have an understanding of the Photoshop interface and base tools, such as layers, masks, paintbrush, eraser, etc.
Note: This course is built primarily for Photoshop users, however, the theory and practical skills taught can be applied to almost any coloring platform (including for video grading). The course discusses the foundations of how coloring tools work and the thought process behind making coloring choices
Disclaimer: This course does NOT cover any retouching or compositing! It focuses solely on the coloring and stylization process. If you’d like to learn retouching too, I’d recommend taking a look at the Retouching & Stylization Bundle!
