About This Class

In this class I will show you the process to turn yourself into a character.

You will create a lot of expressions and elements that will help you to communicate specific emotions and messages to others.

You will sketch, digitalize and organize all the elements in a table to keep track of all of them easily.

Once your character is ready you will be able to sell it as chat stickers or create your own merchandising online.

I will be using illustrator for this class but you could also follow along with photoshop. 

It’s not an Illustrator class. I show you how I work with Illustrator and explain each step but I don’t go deep in each tool.

It’s going to be a fun classs! I hope you'll join me.
