Make Best-Selling Fan Art
What you'll learn
- Learn about how to sell fan art legally
- Vectorizing a character from a screenshot
- Creating type art using images
- Making patterns and mandalas from characters
- Merging characters with your past art using blend modes
- Putting images in silhouettes of characters for stickers and shirts
- Basic knowledge of Adobe Illustrator and/or Photoshop
For the first time, artists can sell fan art legally through a variety of partnership programs. Let's make some fan art that fans will love!
What is in this course?
In this course, you will learn the ins and outs of these programs, how to make art that people want to buy, and I will also show you 5 different techniques in Photoshop and Illustrator you can use to make high-quality fan art quickly and easily.
I'll even show you how to get the elements you need to make the fan art, including creating your own vector of a character from a screenshot.
Why fan art?
Fan art has an established audience and market, meaning you have a very high chance to make sales. Over the two weeks we spent filming and editing this course, I had a single fan art design make over $100 USD on Redbubble. While that number is not typical, it's not farfetched, and the design (below) I made in this course ("Easy Fan Art Ideas 5" lesson) has already gotten sales in the first week.
If you aren't in it for the money, fan art gives you a chance to combine your creativity with your favorite characters.
It's a lot of fun, and the results are pretty cool. Press that play button and I'll see you inside!
Who this course is for:
- Artists who want to make more sales through POD platforms
- Fans who want to make Fan Art legally
- Artists looking to expand their knowledge of Photoshop and Illustrator
I love to learn and teach. I am a free-spirited creator and artist in many disciplines. My courses focus on selling art online, energy work, and music. I teach what would help a younger me, including the strategies I used to sell over 20,000 copies of my artwork without advertising, energy techniques I have learned to unlock human potential, and tips to help musicians.
I grew up near Deep Creek Lake, Maryland, and I am currently travel-living as a digital nomad thanks to selling art and teaching online. I plan to keep traveling, creating, and learning from this amazing planet as long as I live!
My purpose on Earth is love. Love is the greatest teacher, healer, and creator. I believe when the individual chooses to love all unconditionally, that feeling lights up the whole world instantly. That is the world I want to live in, so I choose to. I hope to inspire others to find this vibration in their own way.
I created Current X Change, a company that makes apps that allow creators to share their creations on a global map for all to see and vote on. You can try out our first web app, cXc Music, at cxc .world and learn more about our vision at currentxchange .com.
I also started Aquarius Academy (aquarius .academy) an open academy of consciousness. Our mission is to help evolve planetary consciousness with love. We distill conscious content to help seekers connect with the right information for their point of their journey.
I started fashion lifestyle brand Live in Love liveinlove .life and also sell my art on POD sites like Redbubble & Society6, and stock photography sites like Adobe Stock and Shutterstock.
