Create Technical Drawings with Illustrator & Photoshop

Jul 16, 2013

You're invited to join us as a guest to a webinar with BurdaStyle!

In COMPUTER TECHNIQUES: HOW TO DRAW GARMENT TECHNICAL DRAWINGS IN ILLUSTRATOR, you'll have the chance to learn from pattern maker, designer and Online Editor of BurdaStyle.com, Meg Healy. During this hour-long seminar on Thursday, July 18 at 11 am EST, Meg will review how to use Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to turn your freehand sketches into professional digital work. 

You'll also learn:

  • How to use your brush and pen tools to mimic stitches
  • How to draw garments and sketch digitally
  • How to create different types of lines

Once you've mastered the process of creating digital croquis, Meg will guide you through transferring your sketches in to Photoshop so that you can enhance your work even further. Get a sneak peek at what your finished garment will look like by combining your desired fabric with your sketch to see what the finished product will look like. This will allow you to modify nearly any pattern from BurdaStyle.com so you can preview what your favorite fabrics will look like as completed garments. 

If you are unable to attend, you will automatically receive a recording of the webinar, all resources and references mentioned during the event, and ask any additional questions that weren't answered during the seminar. We look forward to seeing you at this event hosted by BurdaStyle!
