Frequently asked questions

Who is this course for?

This course is for anyone who wants to learn how to retain a hand drawn quality to vector artwork.

We'll be using Adobe Illustrator to complete our project so a bit of Adobe Illustrator knowledge is recommended. However, if you're new to Adobe Illustrator this class is also perfect for wetting your feet. Remember you can watch, rewatch and pause any of the videos at any stage.

Do I need to be able to draw animals?

No, not at all! I'll show you a step-by-step method that even beginners can follow along to. We'll be drawing a super cute fox using very basic shapes. I'll show you an uncomplicated approach to drawing an adorable character. And remember, this technique can be used with any subject matter, not only animals.

Do I need any supplies or special software to take this course?

Yes. We start with sketching out our character with pencil and paper, then move onto Adobe Illustrator. Here's a list of supplies used in class:

  • Paper - 80gsm bond and 46gsm layout paper or tracing paper
  • Graphite pencils - 2b and 4b
  • Scanner
  • Adobe Illustrator - required for the Image Trace function
  • Optional: light box or your window - you can use tracing paper instead.
Can I use Affinity Designer instead of Adobe Illustrator?

Unfortunately not. At the moment Affinity Designer doesn't have the Image Trace function needed for this class. But I've read they are working hard to include that feature soon in their software.

When does the course start and how long do I have access to it?

You can begin right away! You'll have life-time access to the course immediately after purchase. The course is self-paced so you can comfortably work at your own pace.

Feel free to slow the video down, pause and rewatch. We all learn at our own pace. I recommend watching me sketch first to get an understanding of the technique, then replay and sketch along with me.

I have a question, where can I get in touch with you?

Pop me an email anytime to [email protected]. During the course you can leave your questions under the video lesson and I'll respond as quickly as possible. I’m always happy to help!

What if I'm not happy with the course, can I get a refund?

I want you to be happy with your purchase and enjoy the course. But if you're unhappy for any reason I offer a 30-day money back guarantee. If you've watched less than 50% of the course and don’t like it, just send me an email within 30 days of your original purchase date and I'll give you a full refund. No hard feelings!
