About This Class

Fantasy and Children’s Book Digital Art Illustration - examples using an iPad and Procreate but traditional and other digital sketching painting program are welcome.

In this class, I'll share all my tips and tricks for creating an amazing fantasy illustration.  I'll take you from the very beginning, finding inspiration and art references, to first sketches and choosing a dynamic composition, then shading, color, lighting, and details that'll help your characters and stories come alive. This course is open to all abilities..even complete beginners. 

I'll be using Procreate on an iPad, but any drawing or painting program will do. You can choose to draw fantasy creatures or fairytale or folktale characters. I'll show you how to increase the emotional expressions in your characters and adjust color and lighting to convey a strong mood.

I can't wait to see what you create!
