About This Class

In this course I will show you how to take your sketches and turn them into vector illustrations in Illustrator.  We will move from your sketchbook, to Photoshop and end in Illustrator, creating a series of vector graphics.  The possibilities are endless.

I'm a beginner and this was very helpful. Thank you!

Trying to get digital.

I enjoyed this class. I especially love the tip to simplify your anchor points in your drawing, thus making the file smaller. The creative techniques are great and will use them in my art. Would have loved for the instructor to zoom in a bit more on the artwork so my bad eyes could see the work, but her instruction was clear and I did learn a few tricks. I hope she makes more videos.

Clear, very practical and straight to the point! Her explanation is easy to follow.
