About This Class

Work side-by-side with illustrator Adams Eberwein as you learn a simple, flexible, and effective process for adding color to your favorite linework.

To begin, all you need is a basic black and white doodle, a digital paint program, and a drawing tablet. By the time you graduate from this brief class, you'll have a fully-colored illustration with a palette of your own design.
