[VIP] Digital Illustration Techniques: Creating a Paper Pop-Up Style

About This Class

Want to learn how to take your digital designs to the next level?

Welcome to my class my friends! In this class, I will be teaching you a unique style that has brought me my biggest clients and a few design/illustration awards and features: the Digital Paper Pop-Up Style.

Imagine the excitement you had as a child when opening your first pop-up book...now imagine providing that same excitement to your clients (or social account) while also providing additional levels of sophistication and the versatility of digital design. To learn how to achieve this standout look, we'll be covering:

  • Sketching and rendering your illustration in Adobe Illustrator.
  • Setting up ring light effects for extra pop and style.
  • Adding paper textures to your layers in Adobe Photoshop.
  • Creating depth and volume to achieve the 3D look.

Plus tons of digital design Tips & Tricks!

This particular look is one of the styles that stood out the most in my Instagram account (@fugstrator), and is probably the one that brought me the most success. I obviously have not invented this style, but I do make it in a way that has been specific to me for a while. Over the years I have appreciated my followers reaching out and asking me to teach them this particular way of execution. I am excited my friends to finally have this out there and see what you all do with it!
