About This Class

In this 30 minute class, you'll learn how to easily create dynamic vector artwork in Adobe Illustrator. You won't be using the pen tool or basic shapes. Instead, you'll get familiar with the brush and blob tools, perfect for creating artwork that's not rigid or lifeless!

I'm Melissa, a Freelance Designer and Illustrator. I sell my own stock illustrations and fonts on Creative Market. I'll walk you through my process for creating vector artworks from start to finish.

You’ll learn how to:

  • create custom brushes in Illustrator
  • use the brush and blob tools effectively
  • add colour, light and shadow to your line work

This class is for beginner or pro alike. Some basic understanding of Adobe Illustrator is highly recommended, although not completely necessary.

Wonderful! I have watched many different videos on inking in Illustrator, but this class really helped me particularly because I like to work in color a lot.

I'm a Freelance Graphic Designer and Illustrator usually found at home pressing buttons on my laptop, dressed in pyjamas.

When I'm not wrapped up in blankets, I can usually be found hopping from design studios to media agencies, getting work done! I've been an artworker, illustrator, pitch designer, packaging designer and even powerpoint guru.

When I'm not working, I spend a ridiculous amount of time drawing, painting, studying and playing video games ;)...
