About this course

Have you ever wondered how illustrators create fun and appealing illustrations for kids? Well on this course I'll teach you all the techniques I use in Adobe Illustrator to create any illustration for children. You'll learn all the tools I use and how I add uniqueness to each character of this illustration.

The course will be divided into several lessons in which you'll see how we use different techniques and tools to give uniqueness to each part of the illustration. At the end of the course you'll be able to create your own solar system an you'll be able to apply these techniques to any other illustration you work on.

What project are we going to develop?

On this course we're going to build an illustration of the solar system for kids. However the course will focus mainly on the techniques required to create an illustration like this, so you could apply these techniques in your own future projects.

At the end of each lesson you will have learned a new tool, technique or tip that you can apply to any other illustrations you create. So no matter what you're illustrating you'll understand how to make a unique face or add more detail to the different areas of the illustration, from the characters to the background.

Who’s this course for? Requirements

For this course you don't need any special skills or even to have used the software before, all the tools are going to be explained in a simple way assuming you have little knowledge of the software. However if you are a more experienced user you will also find a lot of useful information of how to achieve an illustration like this.

We're going to be using Illustrator CC but if you use a previous version there shouldn't be any problems. While the layout and options may change a little, the changes are minimal.
