Create realistic mockups to showcase & promote your designs.
Mocking up your artwork allows your customers and clients to see it in a real environment. With the power of Adobe Photoshop, you can create presentable mockups that will impress your clients, help you get sales on platforms such as Etsy or land licensing agreements. It will also save you money, as you can visualise your design on a product without having to get samples made. You can also add your own branding to make your work look more marketable.
In this class, we will create three different mockups in three different ways:
Mockup 1 - Wall Calendar
I’ll take you through a simple way of creating a mockup for a frame or wall calendar. I’ll show you a simple way of isolating the shape where you’ll be placing the mockup and creating a smart object to place your design.
Mockup 2 - Cushion
I’ll take you step by step through creating a mockup for a cushion. I’ll demonstrate how you can bring out the shadows and highlights of the cushion by using blending modes.
Mockup 3 - Dress
I’ll take you step by step through creating a precise mockup on a dress. We’ll use the pen tool to create an accurate selection of the dress and I’ll show you the power of the liquify tool to ensure your design looks like the original piece of clothing with shadows, creases & curves.
