If you’re looking to incorporate digital processes into your existing illustrative work, or simply curious about the prove, this class will give you the hands on experience to make you digital illustration literate!

This 3 hour masterclass will provide an insight into James’ digital illustration practice from start to finish; covering his approach step-by-step from using photo collage to build photo reference, cleaning up line art, drawing digitally, organising layers in files, colouring in layers and editing in Photoshop.

You’ll follow along by building your own digital illustration, with feedback provided throughout so you don’t feel lost or overwhelmed.

Although this class will be specific to programs Photoshop and Clip Studio Paint, the general process can be applied to other programs.
