Pen and Ink Illustration: The Basics for Creating Magical Drawings

via Kadenze


Ink is a really fun and versatile medium to explore. If you want to improve your inking, learn more about the medium, or are an absolute beginner, you will learn a lot from this class.

We're going to go in depth into all the different supplies and tools that you can use and how they all act so you can find your favorite fit. Then we're going to learn about line variation, how to do it and why it's so important. Next well learn about different ink shading techniques, and I'll even provide you with a worksheet to practice on. Then we'll dive into illustrated textures and patterns, in which you will also have access to a worksheet to create your own unique designs. We'll finish the lessons with a fun mark making exercise that will help you develop expressive painting techniques and textures.

For the final project, you will use the techniques that we learned to create magical illustrations. I will guide you through the drawings that I make to help you understand how to implement the techniques that we learned into different illustration styles. By the end of this class you will have a lot more tools and techniques under your belt and you should feel more comfortable working with ink and excited to try them out.

    The taken course was disappeared without any prior notification. I asked the Customer Support team, and they just meaninglessly repeated that I would check on My Courses. I hope my paid class to be visible on my dashboard unless otherwise, the fee refunded.
