For this class you will need a graphics tablet (or tablet with pen stylus)!

In this class I will explain my process on how to transform a digital sketch into a refined line art ready for color. We will start by going over useful tools that make digital sketching easier, then we will dive into the ways that make the illustration process a lot smoother. We will explore new ways to generate ideas, create inspiration boards, take references, refine composition and safely edit your refined piece.

PLEASE NOTE: In this class I will be using Adobe Photoshop during my process but most of these tips and tricks can be replicated in other digital painting programs.
