Kyle Webster

In his own words...
Photoshop gives us the power to emulate natural media beautifully, thanks to its robust and revolutionary brush engine. In addition to the flexibility this offers artists, there is the added benefit of being able to experiment and mix traditionally incompatible media to create unique styles and effects in our illustration work. Want to paint with watercolors on top of thick oils? No problem. Best of all, nothing is permanent- by using additive and subtractive techniques, the digital canvas is endlessly editable. In this live session, Kyle T. Webster, creator of the world’s most renowned Photoshop brushes, will demonstrate some of his favorite techniques for using this amazing software to create a series of spontaneous images that have both the look and feel of traditional media, as well as a little something extra that could only be achieved in a digital environment.

"I took Kyle's workshop at ICON - The Illustrators Conference a few weeks ago and it was a game-changer in my illustration work. From optimizing your workspace and your tablet settings to emulating all sorts of natural media, Kyle led us through it all with a smile on his face and true love for the art showing every step of the way"
- Lenny Terenzi, Vice-President AIGA Raleigh, Proprietor, Hey Monkey!
