Jenna Rainey

Designer + Artist

BEGINNER Skill Level

1 HOUR 1 MIN Duration

Ready to learn the digitizing process and design techniques from a pro? The amazing Jenna Rainey is back for a second class, all about turning your hand drawn or painted creations into digital artwork.

In this course, you'll learn how to turn quick ink illustrations into versatile digital files that you can use as fun and colorful wallpapers for your desktop and phone. There might be a ton of digital wallpaper options out there, but there isn’t a design made by YOU. Yet!


  • Sketch fun and playful objects using a brush pen, a paintbrush, and black ink to use as part of a custom pattern.
  • Upload your designs into Adobe Illustrator and live trace to create vector files.
  • Use shortcuts in Adobe Illustrator to make designing in the program quick and easy.
  • Use repeat patterns, rotations, and color theory to create an eye-catching composition.
  • Size your designs so that you can seamlessly use them as a wallpaper for your desktop or phone.

You'll leave the class with two digital wallpapers to call your own. Plus, you'll get access to four additional designs that you can use for practice. Think of all the art prints, textiles, stationery and wallpaper you can create! So what are you waiting for? Enroll in our Digitize Artwork in Adobe Illustrator online class today.
