Facial expressions! The best way of bringing your characters to life!

About this course

Welcome to this course! We’re going to create a great looking sticker set that you can use to express unique emotions in your conversations.

We’re going to start by learning how to create effective facial expressions, then we’ll brainstorm and sketch some ideas.

After that, we’ll move over to Adobe Illustrator, where we’ll vectorize our stickers, leaving them ready to be shared with your friends! And by the way, I’ll give you a simple tip on how to create great looking home-made prints.

What project are we going to develop?

We’re going to create a sticker set. Stickers are a great way to share custom expressions, and they’re very popular on apps like Facebook, Line or Telegram. Think of them as fleshed out versions of emojis.

Who’s this course for? Requirements

This course is meant for beginners. You don’t even need to know how to draw! If all you can do are stick figures - then that’s enough! I’ll also guide you step-by-step when vectorizing these illustrations, so don’t worry - I got you covered.
