Creating Characters from Your Imagination Using Procreate

Digital Illustration with
Artist, Salamander King


In this class, I would like to share with you my methods for creating fun and unique characters & creatures from the imagination! I have often felt character design can sometimes seem overwhelming to many due to all the rules and techniques out there for creating an appealing design. Leaving some artists to feel restricted trying to check all the boxes or worried they may be doing it wrong. Throughout this course, I hope to ease some of those feelings for you and offer an enjoyable and more free-form approach to developing your ideas!


This class is best suited for those who are interested in character & creature designs and would like to learn more about working from the Imagination with less reliance on references and common design practices. As well as those who enjoy my artwork and would like to know more about how I go about creating it.


By taking this class I hope for you to gain a greater understanding of working from your imagination, as well as more fun and freeing process for creating your designs. You will also obtain the techniques I use when drawing in Procreate to create your own concise and distinct characters efficiently.

Step 1: Finding Inspiration

Step 2: Turning Inspiration into a Creative Design

Step 3: From Sketch to a Full Color Illustration

Step 4: Creating Back Stories for the Characters

Meet Your Creator
Hey there!
My name is AJ but some of you may know me as The Salamander King from my art page @ayejay_make_art over on Instagram! I am an Artist & Storyteller from California, unable to afford college, I built my career solely off my own drive to bring my ideas and stories to life and share them with others! Now I make my living through commission work, freelancing, and teaching. I specialize in fantasy character/creature design using Procreate. I like to try and push my designs in fun and unusual ways, and encourage others to do so as well! Along with drawing most of my life, I trained 13 years in martial arts and 10 years in circus arts (specifically juggling), so I have spent most all my life as an artist and teacher in various challenging creative disciplines. I really look forward to having this wicked opportunity to share with more people about something I love and hopefully help some of you on your own creative journey!
