About This Class


This class is the second part of the Illustration and Design series for Authors, Creatives & Other Content Creators, who are looking to create images and illustrations for use in their books, websites, social media channels and online promotions.

In this particular class, I am going to show you how you can easily create great looking illustrations, using the software application, Sketcher, which is available for both PCs and Macs.

Specifically, I will show you how you can transform your photos and other images into both pencil sketches and watercolour paintings for use within your various projects.

So go ahead and enrol in my class and I look forward to seeing you on the inside.

Currently on the How To Publish An eBook website, I am giving away a FREE online course for anyone who is interested in making a living (or at least a part-time income) from self-publishing.

Hello there, my name is David James Ault and I am now teaching over 50 classes on the Skillshare platform in the self-publishing and course creation niches.

I am a British ex-pat living in Slovakia, in the heart of Europe, with my wonderful Slovak wife, our three children and our English Bullterrier, Shaggy.

Having graduated with a BSc (Hons) Degree in European Business, the first part of my career was spent in marketing, especially in the tourism industry, and during that time, I completed my Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing, at the CIM.

In 2001, I moved from the UK to Slovakia, where I set up a tourism portal about Slovakia and wrote travel related articles and books. I also began writing my first novel.

During the last 15 years, I have written a number of non-fiction books in a variety of niches and set up a number of successful websites to promote my various interests. More recently, I have also been writing fiction and non-fiction books for teenagers and young adults and, in 2015, I set myself the goal of becoming a full-time author within the next couple of years.

I have an eclectic range of interests, including languages, writing, history, online marketing, design and travel. I also have a passion for cooking and eating healthy food, as well as the traditional Slovak dishes I have discovered, whilst living in the heart of Europe.

I have created a number of online courses for many of my niches and I have set up both the How To Publish An eBook and the Teach Someone A Lesson websites to impart some of the knowledge I have learned over the years to my students.
