Illustration Class

I have talked about Von Glitschka’s Illustration class on a previous post. Now my RSS reader tells me a few tutorials more have been added to the existing ones.
Illustration Class is a website that any illustrator wishing to learn digital techniques shouldn’t miss out. Focused especially on vector illustration techniques, the tutorials offered on this site offer a fascinating glimpse of the creative process, starting with the briefing, the idea-generation phase and sketch-making through the scanning, tracing and colouring which leads to the final art.
It’s interesting to note that Glitschka’s workflow isn’t entirely digital: you will see lots of pencil doodling, rubber erasing, texture creating, vellum tracing, paper-snippet compositing and so on. This way, you can see the existing bridges between traditional and digital media.
In most articles you will find illustrated step-by-step explanations for a variety of projects. A very recommended visit, either if you are starting out with digital illustration or if you already are proficient with it, but you are in search of new inspiration and techniques.
