Presented by: The Incubator Creative Hub
This three-week digital illustration workshop is all about creativity!
If you’ve ever done one of Roxanne’s digital illustration workshops before – this is the perfect opportunity to dive a little deeper and spend a little more time on your artwork and character creation, with a focus on the process of drawing, “inking” and colouring our work.
Part One – Sketching and drawing. We will be our most creative selves and let the imagination lead the way! This is all about scribbling, building shapes, designing, and creating our character. We will learn how to use reference to make our characters believable.
Part Two – Refining, linework and choosing Colour. In the second phase, we start to clean our design up. We have finalised what the character will look like and we’re prepping our drawing for colour. It’s about steady, neat lineart and then choosing the colour palette that fits our character.
Part Three – Colour, shading, details. We’re approaching the finish line as we colour our character, add lighting and shading to bring it into the 3D world. We have fun adding details like highlights, textures, patterns and more. Voila! You’ve created a character!
Participants must bring their own (fully charged) iPad, Tablet or laptop, preferably with a pen or stylus. Devices must have at least one of the following programmes to use in the workshop: either Procreate, Photoshop, Clip Studio Paint, Artrage, Krita, GIMP – These last two are free programmes!
This workshop is also open to those who are interest in digital illustration but don’t yet have a digital device. They are welcome to join in with their own drawing materials!
