The techniques I'm using in this video series can be carried over into many other painting applications. The methods I'm using are particular to Adobe Illustrator. This video will focus primarily on how to digital paint in the broadest sense so we can apply the knowledge to any other process as we see fit.

Digital painting in Adobe Illustrator allows you to adapt your character design for many uses and sizes. Since vectors are scalable and do not pixelate when resized.

Just imagine the implications.

In this course, you will learn:

  • Render a unique character design
  • how to create brushes
  • how to build line art and texture
  • how to work with highlights and shadows
  • how to develop a value scale with vectors
  • how to make the character design process as pain-free as possible
  • and much more!
