By using line, shape, and forms we can construct anything. I will teach you how to simplify the things around you and then draw them with your own creative filter.
For this course you will need a pencil and paper or a drawing tablet. I will be using Traditional Comic Art tools such as 2h and HB lead. Bristol board smooth and various erasers.

I am currently a professional freelance illustrator and comic artist where I create digital art for my clients. I create sequential art and character concepts.
I now share my knowledge in digital art and computer software through online platforms such as Udemy and have a growing Youtube channel as well. With over 190,000 Youtube subscribers and quickly growing I felt I should create some more in depth content for students wanting to take their skills to the next level.
