In this class you will learn how to create pro digital illustrations in Procreate. You will learn a complete design process from drawing, sketching, character design, thumbnailing and base shading. You will also learn lighting techniques, like overcast light, glowing objects, rays of light, making a day scene a night scene, key light and you will also create your very own luminance brush in the Procreate Brush Studio.

In the world of digital illustration, mastering lighting is key to bring your creations to life. There is so much talk about shading and contrast, but a very little about adding that extra light to your artworks. Light brings characters alive, sets the mood of the setting and adds that extra magic that makes your viewers go like… WOOOOW. :)

The class has two main parts, in the first part we create the base illustration, and in the second apply the lighting hacks. You will have artistic freedom to either follow me through the whole illustration process or just light your own illustration up with the lighting techniques.

You will need your iPad and Procreate, however the concepts can be applied in other softwares too but you will need to adjust the steps for yourself.

Whether you are a very beginner or a more seasoned artist, I am convinced, this class will take you on a valuable journey!
