Color & Light Masterclass

Learn to use the full potential of color and light in your artworks!

Knowing how to use Color and Light in your artworks is one of the best skills to learn as an artist because it will help you take your artworks from good to great.

Key Takeaways

“It is not important to focus on finding your style, but rather on creating a lot, trying different things and studying lots of artists. The style will come to you!”

  • Abigail says that developing your art skills is the most important thing you can do in the beginning – anatomy, perspective, color, and light. A lot of young artists focus on finding style but forget you have to master the fundamentals first. You can’t wing it to make it look believable
  • Abigail shares she went into freelance too early, she was too eager, and she would slow down and work on her portfolio and set up her business properly first.
  • Abigail works only with ‘flat rates’ when charging her clients and then add % on top in terms of merchandise and licensing
