Level Up Your Colours

Course description

With so much information out there to learn on colour, at times it can get quite overwhelming. That’s why I’m sharing how I’ve levelled up my own ability with colour!

Instead of dumping a whole universe of colour theory on you, I’m teaching you three simple things that can immediately improve the colour in your work. All you need to do is learn the step-by-step techniques I outline and apply it to your own art. No extensive studying. No confusing terms. No problem!

What You'll learn

  • Three easy-to-understand methods of drastically improving the colour in your work
  • Fine-tuning colours in Illustrator
  • Taking existing colour schemes and making them harmonize better
  • The many ways you can use Photoshop Adjustment Layers to improve the colour of your art


Now that you are equipped with a whole new set of tools, let’s try them out!

Your assignment is to take any previous work that you’ve created (or one of the alternatives I’ve attached) and level up the colour scheme of it using what you’ve learned!

Lesson 5: Level up your work

I absolutely LOVED this class! Realized I was underutilizing Illustrator and the colour capabilities. I’m excited to start using the info I’ve picked up.

Hayden Aube is a good teacher. He knows that not everyone might have studied color theory and approaches his class as such. He leaves lots of resources to fill in points that he hasn’t discussed
