Learn Photoshop by Making a Card Game from Scratch!
Have you ever wanted to make a card game to play with your friends and family? In this course, we're going to design the cards, rule book and box cover for a Crazy Eights-type card game, and upload them online and get them printed on-demand.
I will start by showing you a completed deck, then we will go into Adobe Photoshop and make the entire deck, the rule book, and the box from scratch. I will also show you how to make the same rule book in InDesign.
When all the parts are finished, we will upload it to a game manufacturer and get it printed.
If you've ever wanted to make your own card game, this is the course to watch!
Within a few hours, you should have a complete card game!
