Take your creations to a new scenario that transcends the limits of two-dimensionality. Augmented reality can help you project your ideas in the digital environment with which you interact daily: social networks. This way you can achieve greater impact and exposure for your work, as well as reaching a universe full of new possibilities. The popular illustrator Beatriz Ramo, better known as Naranjalidad, tries in each of her illustrations to transfer a special atmosphere that manages to convey an emotion to the viewer. In the same way, she works on her augmented reality filters, trying to make them stand out in an increasingly crowded environment.

In her first course, Portrait with Pencil, Color Techniques and Photoshop, Beatriz teaches how to transform a classic portrait into a new and vibrant version. In this course, she will guide you to take an idea, illustration, or design and turn it into a personalized augmented reality filter for Instagram or Facebook. You will learn to use Spark AR Studio, Facebook’s software designed to create filters and be able to upload them to your profile or share them with whoever you want.
