What is this course about?

Our class project will be illustrating the Sydney opera house from sketch to final export. So this class will not only give you the skillset you need to illustrate like a professional, but also the ability to bring your own creative ideas to life.

To complete this class, you’ll need Adobe Illustrator and a basic sketch setup. I’m using a drawing tablet with Adobe Photoshop, however, a basic analogue sketching setup will be more than sufficient.

You’ll receive my original Sydney opera house illustration work file for you to dig your teeth into and explore into more depth.
