Learn how to create a colorful Dracula Illustration

Learn some cool Illustrator techniques with Diego Barrionuevo and add a special touch to your illustrations!

About this course

On this course, we'll be creating a cartoon style character. I’ll be guiding you through the entire process - not just the technical aspects, but also the creative steps that you need to take before you even start using any software.

We'll be defining the appearance, the style and the composition of the illustration. Then, I’m going to show you how I approach the sketch while showing you some tricks to save time. And finally, we’re going to dive into Adobe Illustrator, where we’re going to vectorize our character from start to finish.

What project are we going to develop?

We're going to create a vector illustration of a cartoon character. In this case, we’ll make a funny vampire, inspired by Count Dracula.

Who’s this course for? Requirements

This course is ideal for beginners. If you want to become an illustrator and you feel lost, this course will encourage you to take the first steps on your journey. And if you're already experienced, you may learn a few new tips and tricks to speed up your process.

You'll need a copy of Adobe Illustrator CC for this course.

As an optional step, I’ll show you how I draw the sketch for this character on Adobe Photoshop CC using a Wacom tablet, but it’s not a requirement; you can easily replace it with pencil and paper.
