Project Description

Create an Illustration Inspired by Your Favorite Fairytale!

ASSIGNMENT

Create a character illustration using your favorite fairytale, folk tale, or legend as inspiration.

All you need is a little creativity and something to draw with! 

The class activities will help you move from thumbnail sketches to final illustration. Don’t worry about making the most awesome sketches, focus on your ideas - your sketches will keep getting better and better. It’s amazing, it’s like magic. You will absolutely get better the more you do it. Unlike some things in life - like getting to the airport on-time.
