Discover my process for capturing the mood, story, and purpose within every part of a canvas.

This class will help you illustrate story-filled worlds that intrigue your audience.

You’ll get a step-by-step guide to creating scenes that tell a story, through references, line art, coloring, lighting, and more.

Class Highlights

Ideas & References

First, we will learn to establish an idea and story. This is probably one of the most essential steps when drawing a scene that conveys a story, a mood, or a feeling. I’ll share my ideation process and show you how to find and select references from the web. It is vital to pick out specific aspects of the collected reference images. Finding images isn’t difficult but putting them together and selecting which parts can be used as a reference for your illustration is.

Line Art

Once the idea is in place, we will start roughly sketching the background and character to better envision our composition. After the sketching phase, I sometimes go straight into painting the background without doing a clean line pass, but during this class, I will go through the line pass process to give you a more detailed run-through. This process might be time-consuming, but it is necessary when creating a neat illustration.

Coloring & Lighting

After the line art is complete, we will learn how to add local color, followed by lighting to bring it all together. Coloring and lighting are key parts of this class. During this phase, we will set the mood and convey all the emotions we want to express. I’ve added an extra special section where we examine and discover how differences in lighting can change the mood.
