Have you ever drawn something on paper and thought, oh, no, that's terrible... No worries, I have been there multiple times! In this class I will help you to transform basic sketches into captivating and imaginative character- driven illustrations while exploring various techniques. You will learn how to enhance your artwork by applying contrasting hues and details which will improve your visual storytelling skills.


This class is for all of those ready to gather their creative ideas and produce a character focused art. From basic to more advanced techniques, this course will cover all the essential parts to allow you experiment with color and transform your feelings onto a digital artwork.


By the end of this class, you will gain a greater understanding of how to create an intriguing character from a scratch, even an ugly scratch. By going through the whole development process, including research, you will learn how to produce a flowing composition that captures the essence and personality of your character. The set of skills you will gain from the class will allow you to create a high-quality dark artwork in 3 hours.

Meet Your Creator
Hi there!
I'm Iga, better known as Dead Seagull. I am a freelance illustrator and graphic designer with experience in book illustration. I have been drawing from an early age and my degree in Digital Media allowed me to transform my ideas onto a digital canvas. My approach to art is based on not giving up after a first obstacle and focusing on enjoying the process of creation.
I believe that everything can be shaped into an outstanding work with a little bit of help and I'm more than excited to share my knowledge and tips gained over the past years!
