Drawing People & Scenes in Procreate: Character Illustration & Composition

By Iva Mikles •  Updated: Sep 07, 2021 •  Online Classes

Get more comfortable drawing people in scenes and within interesting compositions!

Drawing people and creating scenes with characters is a lot of fun! It can add a lot of personality and stories to your illustrations. You can also use this skill for your own creative business and/or clients in games, animation, and publishing!

Level Up Your Character Design and Layout Skills

In this class, we will go on a journey of designing stylized characters and layouts using simple shapes, perspective, and composition fundamentals.

To celebrate summer and to relax while drawing, we will be placing the characters in a fun little story moment of a summer picnic in the garden, by the seaside, on the forest meadow, or wherever you like!

Building on top of my previous character design classes, this class will help you gain a solid skill for developing your character design style further.

You will learn about:

and how they help you create scenes and environments with characters and various objects.

What is more, you will also learn the basic process used in concept illustration!

At the end of the class, you will have an illustration you could print out for your home, give to your family and friends, or take your design further and even use it in your portfolio if you create your own custom illustration.

I will be using Procreate, but feel free to use any other drawing software or medium you prefer. 

In addition, you will also get a bunch of freebies you can access in the Resources section.

Enroll and let’s get started with expanding your horizons and drawing awesome character scenes!

See you in the class!
