About This Class

Hi, I am Maggie McToon and I have been working as a freelance character concept artist for the last few years. I mostly do superhero illustrations for writers who wish to see their characters brought to life.

In this class I will take you step by step through the workflow I use when digitally painting my character concepts. I will go over how I set up a project with line work and base colors, shading, applying color to line work, how to create custom brushes, techniques for backgrounds, special effects, texture, and a few final touches.

At the end of the class you will be able to apply these techniques to your own drawing and leave with a polished portfolio piece!
