About This Class


This is a conceptual illustration class that is less about how to draw but more about what to draw. "how do I come up with cool outfits for your characters?" this is the question I will be answering. I will take you through my process; from finding visual inspiration to thinking about different versions of the same character. We will explore reference images,  time saving techniques for creating multiple concepts quickly and translating the ideas into a finished Illustration.

This class will show you how to create a character and dress them so that their personality comes through their outfit.
