So you can unite the best of both media. The warmth and imperfection of traditional media with the multiple possibilities offered by digital tools.

You will be able to develop an illustration from the beginning to the end, from the initial sketch, through the formation of pencil drawing, inking and color finishing by digital means.

You can learn to treat hair, expression, light and shadow contrasts, adequate saturation and opacity, the balance of a simple and harmonious color palette.

In addition, you will be able to discover the necessary importance of freedom when creating knowing how to appreciate “the beauty of imperfection”, the real weight of our focus on the character, the correction of levels and the value of gradients in the composition.
