Project Description

The 3 Day Editorial Illustration Challenge!

Over 3 days I will guide you through my entire working process, breaking it down as follows...

Day 1 we will cover:

     how to get work in illustration, responding to art directors, negotiating fees, sketching methodologies, the burden of style and how to overcome it,  analysing articles and completing your first draft.

You can download all files >>>here<<< 


I'll be testing out DropBox for now, it will ask you to sign up, but you don't need to in order to download the files. There will be 3 images displayed at the top and then 3 PSD/ Photoshop files below. Let me know if anyone has a problem: [email protected]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Day 2:

      is all about submitting your sketches to the Skillshare project gallery, acting as Art Directors ourselves and critiquing each others work. We are going to take this feedback and start mulling over how best to expand upon our illustrations.

Day 3:

       is hand in day, we have one day to turn our sketch into a mind blowing illustration that is totally bad ass. I will take you through my process of turning simple ideas into awesome illustrations full of character and reference to the article. You'll upload these to the Skillshare gallery and you will become the champion you were always born to be.
