Fantasy Illustration

As an artist, you have the unique capability to take your viewers on a journey
to fantastic and amazing worlds – but there are methods you must apply for your images to
be believable and engaging. In this fun and mind-expanding eight week course, award-
winning fantasy & science fiction illustrator Mark Helwig will unlock the keys to creating a
fantasy illustration that “feels real” and excites the senses. You’ll learn how to set up an
illustration, and you’ll explore using “normal” drawing and sculpting techniques to create
imaginary (and imaginative!) worlds. You’ll finish the course well on your way to creating
your own fantasy illustration in the style and subject of your choosing.
