By Iva Mikles •  Updated: Jul 11, 2020 •  Online Classes

Become more confident when presenting yourself as a professional illustrator delivering illustrations your clients will love. 

In this class, we will go through the process I usually follow when creating illustrations for clients, so you become more confident when presenting yourself as a professional illustrator delivering illustrations your clients will love. 

Be More Confident When Working With Clients

During my career, I was lucky enough to work both as a client and as an in-house & freelance illustrator.

I want to share with you what I learned so you can develop your own process when working with clients, presenting your work, communicating professionally, and being involved in more and more interesting projects.

“First of all, thank you for the hard work that you put in. I appreciate all details. Your classes are amazing as usual. I needed this knowledge to send a portfolio to a real client, but I wasn’t I feel confident enough to do it. This class explain not only “how to create artwork for products”, but also teaches how to make your project looks professional. Thank you forever! ”

What You Will Learn

I will show you and explain my process step by step:

We will talk about what makes a strong composition, how to test colors so they work well together as well as how you can start developing your illustration series.

By understanding my process, you can create your own and develop your professional approach to working with clients.

This class is mostly for beginner artists and illustrators, who are curious about working with clients or are just starting out working on client projects and they are not sure what to expect.

The information you will learn in this class will help you know what questions to ask and how to communicate with the clients. The more you know, the more professional you appear and you are more likely to get the job.

I will be using Procreate but feel free to use any other digital drawing program. In the end, I will use Photoshop to show you how you can apply your art to mockups to present your work in a portfolio.

Working with clients can be pretty exciting, so let’s start creating those awesome illustrations!
