ONLINE WORKSHOP with Sarah Conradsen.
I’m an illustrator who primarily works with childrens books and more recently also with comic books. In this workshop I’ll be focusing on character driven illustration and the use of colour to inform your designs. I’ll take you through my process from the idea/research state, through thumbnail, sketching, clean up and finally colour and rendering.
Introduction to my art journey and how I got to where I am today.
Then I’ll talk about what we’ll be doing during the days we have together.
First part of my design process: We’ll be talking about creating a moodboard, doing research and then start creating thumbnails and rough sketches, based on a chosen idea.
On our second day we’ll be finalising the chosen sketch, talking about composition, character shapes, variety and then move onto the first stage of colouring, by doing colour thumbnails to find the best tone for the final image
On the third day we’ll colour and render the image and then finish off with questions and tips.
NOTE; By all means ask questions at any time during the three days.
I recommend that you use a drawing tablet, this can be Ipad, Wacom or any other tablet of your choice. It’s also perfectly fine to use traditional media.I’ll be working in Photoshop.
What happens if I can’t see the classes live one day?
• No problem. All classes are live but will also be recorded and posted on our platform. So you can see them whenever you want throughout the duration of the course. This means that if you cannot attend your class live at the stipulated time, you will be able to see them on the platform until the end of the course. These video-classes posted on the platform can be viewed unlimitedly during the duration of the course but cannot be copied or downloaded. They can also be viewed for 20 days once the course is over.
When can I see the classes I did not attend live?
• Access to the virtual platform where you can consult all the information or documentation of the course, access all the classes that have already been taught or the proposed exercises.
