“Iva’s class is fantastic and really exceeded my expectations. The clear guidance on sketching, using references, and creating color palettes made everything easy to follow. I finished with a beautiful illustration and learned a lot along the way. Highly recommend!”

Hey everyone! I’m excited to have you here, and I can’t wait to see the amazing artwork you’ll create throughout this class.

Heartwarming Parent-Child Moments Illustration

For the class project, we’ll focus on the theme of parents and kids “bonding activities.”

I’ve chosen the topic of “book reading” as an example, but throughout the class, you’ll have the opportunity to choose your own illustration theme.

We’ll begin by sketching different character poses related to this theme, and I’ll walk you through the process of analyzing photo references to help guide your sketching process.

From there, I’ll guide you step by step through the entire illustration process, from refining your chosen sketch to creating a color palette and bringing your illustration to life with carefully crafted details.

By the end of this class, you’ll have a beautiful illustration that showcases the power of storytelling and the warmth of human connection, and you’ll gain valuable skills in reference selection, sketching, color palette creation, and digital illustration techniques.
