I will walk you through the fundamentals of Adobe Illustrator, and everything that you need to know before embarking on your illustration journey.

In module 2, we dive a little deeper into the tools and functionalities within Adobe Illustrator. We learn about various transformation tools and processes that will allow us to create different kinds of artistic effects.

ADVANCED ILLUSTRATOR FUNCTIONALITIES

In Module 4 we begin to ramp up the complexity and deep dive into some advanced Illustrator functionalities. This is where we start to learn about some of the processes and workflows that will take our basic illustrations to the next level. 

For the homework assignment, we will be creating a “flat” style character illustration using free-form shapes. I provide detailed run-throughs for all of my examples so that you can follow along and see how an illustration comes together from start to finish.

ADVANCED ILLUSTRATOR EFFECTS

Module 5 takes an even deeper dive into the advanced Illustrator effects and functionalities that will really help your illustrations pop! I will walk you through multiple topics like patterns, textures, gradients, and more. 

This module highlights some of the more “decorative” or “aesthetic” Illustrator effects. Throughout this module, you will be able to try out and test these different techniques, and pick which ones you like and think you would like to carry through in your own illustration practice.

EXPLORING
ILLUSTRATOR STYLES

Module 6 takes you through the process of creating original character illustrations from reference. There is a specific focus on how different techniques and artistic decisions impact the overall look and style of an Illustration. 

We start off by focusing on body proportion and compositions, and move into facial features and hands. In these later modules of the course we are using all the techniques and tools that we learned in previous modules, and putting them into practice to create unique and original pieces.

PORTRAIT ILLUSTRATION

Module 7 goes through the process of creating unique portrait illustrations from a reference photo. We will learn how create illustrations of faces that ACTUALLY look like the photo, without having it feel like a cheesy image trace. 

This module is perfect for people who would like to start taking on commission work, or just want to be able to draw their friends and family.   

MODULE SEVEN

CREATING AN ORIGINAL ILLUSTRATION

To wrap up the course, I walk through a process that I call "Frankenstein" Illustration. This module will teach you a unique method of creating a fully original and unique illustration, that you can use in your personal work, as well as freelance and commission work.

This method is particularly helpful in instances where you might have to draw a specific character scenarios, poses, or gestures.

Money Back 

I am super confident that you will love and thrive in Illustration Bootcamp, but if for any reason the course isn't meeting your expectations, I offer a 100% money back guarantee if you change your mind or decide you would like a refund before opening module 3 to 8.

That means that you can go through Module 1 (The Fundamentals) and Module 2 (Visual Design) and if you decide its not for you, I will happily refund your investment!  

My

Guarantee

Adobe Illustrator is the very first program I picked up when I was getting started in Illustration, it took me a while to get a grasp on the software, but I’m so glad that I stuck with it. Building an artistic practice around Adobe Illustrator has led to so many amazing opportunities- Illustrating for Cosmopolitan magazine, creating motion graphics for companies like Nike and XBox, and working with Adobe a bunch of times, including being asked to speak at Adobe MAX conference twice! 

I know that Illustrator can feel clunky and tricky to use when you’re first starting out. It’s very common for people to open up Illustrator, try and create something, and then just get frustrated and revert back to their comfort zone. 

That’s exactly why I decided to bring this course to life, I have poured every bit of my knowledge of Adobe Illustrator into this course to help you quickly get up and running and creating stunning vector art in a fraction of the time it took me. 

Wherever you are in your illustration journey, you owe it to yourself to at least take a risk-free plunge and start leveling up your illustration practice and career.

FAQs

I'm not sure my illustration skills are up to scratch, should I first focus on getting better before I enroll in this course? 

This course is designed to help everyone, especially beginners get a grasp of all the most important Illustrator tools and functionalities as quickly as possible.

Each module has an optional run-through at the end where I record my own process of working through the homework assignment, this is to help people who need a little extra handholding throughout their learning process. 

The Slack group is also a valuable resource for anyone looking for extra help and support. 

What software should I be using for this course?

The only program you NEED to have for this course is Adobe Illustrator. Students are encouraged to have Illustrator up and running on their computers before the course starts. 

Do I need a tablet or iPad for this course? 

No, this course focuses on just using the Adobe Illustrator desktop app. I personally always use the trackpad on my computer, but a mouse would work great too!

That being said if you want to use a tablet or iPad, you are more than welcome to! 

What's the difference between Illustration Bootcamp and Illustration Style Academy?

Illustration Bootcamp is a deep-dive course into using Adobe Illustrator. The course will take you from the very basic tools and functionalities, to more advanced approaches to creating highly polished, professional-level illustrations.

On the other hand, Illustration Style Academy focuses on helping you develop, and uncover your own unique illustration style. You can use any graphics software to work through this course (Photoshop, Illustrator, Procreate, Whatever you like!). Essentially it is focused on style and finding your unique, personal artistic voice. 

Will we have access to these materials forever?

You will have access to the course materials for a full year after the purchase date, and your cohort's Slack group for 6 months! 

Is this course self-paced? 

Illustration Bootcamp is self-paced, however, in the Slack group I encourage and prompting you to work through the modules on a week-by-week basis (more or less). This is to help motivate you and to create more of a classroom environment!

From basics to advanced techniques, a course designed to turn you into an Adobe Illustrator pro!
