WHAT IS THIS CLASS ABOUT?

Is your head buzzing with ideas, characters and scenarios that you have no time to put to paper? Is perfectionism keeping you from finishing that drawing, or starting that webcomic you’ve been meaning to get around to for years? Gather ‘round and let me show you how I overcame these obstacles and the relentless passing of time. In this course, I’ll share with you the techniques, cheats, thought process and execution that make my drawings rarely take longer than 2h to complete, in full colour.

WHO IS THIS CLASS FOR?

A course for people with a lot of ideas and not enough time to get them done. Ideal if you’re looking to quickly capture a character or a full scene in under 3h, or launch yourself into a webcomic.

WHAT WILL THE STUDENTS ACHIEVE?

By the end of this course, you’ll have a rounded understanding of tools, “cheats” and processes to quicken your artistic process and time management. You’ll have a better understanding of the elements that guide the eye in a scene, and how character design and composition can help you tell the story you want to tell with your art. Upon completion, you should have a foundation to launch yourself into visual storytelling without letting time or impatience hinder the process.

Meet Your Creator
Hi!
 
I'm known as Maf in the internet wilderness. I've been drawing and creating stories since I could hold a pen, and have been a digital artist for around a decade now. As a true Jack-of-All-Trades (master of none), my career involves a degree in computer science, a degree in 3D animation and an in-progress degree in physics, which I split with working on a webtoon called Stray Souls. As you can see, I'm all about squeezing as much work into as little time as possible - and speed is the key to me when it comes to keeping ideas buzzing and inspiration high. I approach art in a methodical, formulaic way that allows me to never lose momentum and build up stamina and consistency, and I'm here to reach out to others who, just like me, are looking for the best way to manage their time in art and balance the quantity and quality of their work.
