What is a mask? In digital art, a mask is a tool to let you do something to a part of the image but not the whole. 

What sort of something? Anything. You can change the exposure in a dark area of the image. You can smooth only the skin. You can make part of the image black and white. You can blur the background.

You can ADD things to an image. You can add a texture to the background. You can add an object. You can REMOVE or REPLACE things from an image. 

We are going to focus on making masks in two apps: iColorama and Procreate. I will also show you a simple way to cut out objects from photos that is useful for composite images. Different apps work in different ways, and different masking techniques work better for certain types of jobs. After you are comfortable with basic masking, we will explore some more advanced masking techniques.

*This is an intermediate level class. Some experience with creating mobile digital art, using any app, is necessary.
