The Ultimate Beginner's Course
Learn Character Illustration with
Artist, Kezia Gabriella
In this course, you'll be learning how to create characters that stand out by utilising abstract shapes, colour combinations and a wide variety of patterns. I'll be giving a step by step walkthrough on how I build a unique character design: from developing a story, creating a personality through body language and figures, planning the composition, balancing colours and patterns, to touching up the final artwork. I'll also guide you to explore different ways to bring more life into your character through animation.
Throughout the course, I'll be using traditional medium (pencils and bristol paper) and Adobe Photoshop for the colouring process. But any drawing software should work just fine!

About the Instructor
My name is Kezia Gabriella, an illustrator and art director currently based in Singapore. Coming from the advertising industry, I have since ventured out to develop a career in illustration. My works are mostly known for their signature vivid colours, irregular human piles and wonky shapes. I like to use illustration to express my ideas and opinions surrounding my community, female empowerment, and everyday moments.
Q: How did you first start doing what you do?
When I was still working in the advertisement industry, illustration was just a way for me to unwind from my hectic workload. Along the way, I decided to quit my career in advertising to pursue illustration full-time. It was rather an unplanned decision as being an illustrator never really crossed my mind, and I just went with what my gut feeling told me to do.
Since then I have been working on wide variety of projects from music video to packaging design, and have been collaborating with multiple local and global clients such as Apple, Rimowa, Nike, Medium, WeTransfer, and more.
