About This Class

In this class, we will be going over how to plan out an illustration from thumb-nailing, gathering reference, rough initial sketch, to final sketch. This is part one of a series of classes that will lead to a final full color illustration using my methods of working. You can start here and follow along all the way, or you can just complete the parts of the series that covers what you are interested in learning! Each class will be posted in order from the beginning phase to the final, a few weeks between each class. I can't wait to see what you create along with me!
