Section 1: Introduction

In this course I will cover how I create a game interface from scratch and show that we only need basic knowledge in drawing to create a beautiful design.

This course was created for all levels of artists but it is better for you to be an intermediate to advanced photoshop user, so it assumes you already know the basics of photoshop. You need to know how to use clipping masks, pen tool, change blending modes and work with other photoshop tools.

We will create 3 different styles of a game user interface: for each style we will make one screen, few buttons and different interface elements.

We will start with a screen sketch, after we will finalize it and add buttons.And after we will move to more complicated designs.

This course Does Not cover game icons creation, we will make buttons, screens, user interface and decorative elements, but in this course I use the icons (coins, diamonds, purse) from my previous projects.

So the plan of my lessons is to start with a sketch, move to the final design and create additional elements.

I hope you will enjoy the process and will find useful tips and tricks for your future creations.
