How about a FREE & PERSONALIZED digital painting/coloring tutorial?

You can learn some more from watching me color YOUR artwork (yep YOUR artwork) on the Pixel Pintura Workouts!  These are 10-minute videos where I color what you color!

And that's the catch, you've got to have colored it too yourself! What better way to learn more techniques than to watch someone color your own work?

If you're interested follow these steps:

1. Be a fan of Pixel Pintura on Facebook!

2. Post your colored work. And I will ask you for line art/sketches - whatever went into making the work.

3. Then get a chance to watch me color what you've colored! Totally FREE and PERSONALIZED for YOU from me!!!!

Basic sewing involved, materials included in the registration fee, but bring your own pair of scissors!

About the facilitator:

Pergylene Acuña, member of Ang I.N.K. since 2008, is a graduate of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Bachelor of Arts in Advertising and Public Relations. She is also the illustrator of "Ang

How would you like to use Photoshop in exciting new ways?  Wouldn't you rather finish your work in Photoshop sooner rather than later?   And instead of boring classes of laying out paragraphs and repairing bad photos, how would you like to be on your way to mastering Photoshop by painting and coloring?

The Pixel Pintura Workshops guarantee that you will discover Photoshop secrets that will enhance not just how you create a digital painting masterpiece but also everyday work in:

• rendering animation backgrounds,
• applying comic book colors and lettering,
• creating 2D game art, interface, and assets for 3D,
• graphic design,
• illustration
• enhancing architectural perspectives and interiors
• laying out graphics – that's right!

Each student gets an intensive hands-on experience and real-time feedback particular to their level and style. While other schools would need at least 3 students to start a class, at Pixel Pintura you can have the teacher all to yourself!  That's added value for your money!   We keep the classes tight at a maximum 3 students to keep those standards.  

Not convinced?  Read what Pixel Pintura students themselves have to say on the Pixel Pintura blog or on our site at .  Need more?  Sign up for Pixel Pintura's Tips+Tricks for painting and coloring in Photoshop!  It's FREE!!
