Create an Iconic Style and Draw Badass Characters with a Personality

with Artist, Rekaholic

WHAT IS THIS CLASS ABOUT?

Are you struggling to find your voice and style as an artist? Want to create stunning character illustrations that feel like real people you would love to befriend? This course will go over everything I know about illustration and character design, starting from the very beginning with finding and refining your unique style, gathering inspiration, studying references and poses, and executing polished illustrations that are expressive and dynamic.
 

WHO IS THIS CLASS FOR?

This class is for anyone who wants to define their style clearly and create iconic character illustrations.

WHAT WILL THE STUDENTS ACHIEVE?

By the end of this class, you will know exactly how to find your style and define it clearly so you always have inspiration to draw from. You will be able to execute your ideas in an iconic and stylish way that people recognize, and that shows the character's personality in a dynamic and expressive way. You will also learn how to make simple animations that bring the characters to life even more.
 

Step 1: Drawing Characters with Personality

We will start with the basics of the head and creating emotion and personality with the face, and then advance to the study of the entire body and how to use shape language to create stylized dynamic poses that improve the character design.

Step 2: Colors and Polish

Starting with color theory and how to realistically apply it to drawings, we will learn how to choose the right colors for a piece, and how to shade in a beautiful way. I will take you on a detailed look into my full process on a polished piece.

Step 3: Mastering a Style

We will deep dive and analyze what makes up my style and how it evolved, then we will break it down so you can easily use and change it or create your own style template.

Step 4: Defining Yourself as an Artist

We will go through exercises that will help unlock your unique creative voice, and I will show you how to create inspiration boards that ensure you never run out of things to draw, and can become a consistent and recognizable artist.

Meet Your Creator

Hello!
 
I'm Reka and I'm an illustrator from California. I've been drawing off and on for 12 years now and have gone through many struggles when it comes to finding a style and keeping up on drawing. After many years I have techniques in place that ensure I always have inspiration to draw from, and always have my style defined to take the guesswork out of starting an illustration. I now love the process of drawing and can simply relax as I work on a piece. What I want to do is share this process with others who are struggling to find their voice and help them create characters that show personality and depth while also being iconic and recognizable. I have had a lot of requests on Instagram for information on how to find their style, how to draw people, and how to get started animating, so I'm excited to be bringing all of that into this massive course.

This course will teach and guide you on how to effectively utilize different tools such as "digital brushes," "palettes," and "blending options" in Procreate app.
We will help you adjust app settings to optimize your drawing experience.
