Transform the way you draw with an in-depth illustration class like no other from creative mastermind and YouTube star Jazza!

With over five million followers on YouTube, Jazza has crafted a career out of helping others find the fun in illustration. Now, he shares his own creative process in never-before-seen detail, distilling his favorite tips, tricks, and techniques into a comprehensive masterclass for artists of all levels.

Working with your medium of choice, you’ll learn the basics of sketching, inking, and color, building to more adventurous techniques like texture and lighting effects. With an emphasis on practice over polish, Jazza’s step-by-step process empowers you to take risks, explore your style, and trust that you’ll improve every time you put pen to paper, brush to canvas, or stylus to screen.

Think of each hands-on lesson as a mini bootcamp for an essential skill, including:

  • Brainstorming original concepts even when you feel uninspired
  • Sketching to quickly find your favorite ideas and the best way to combine them
  • Inking for depth and dimension while leaving room for happy accidents
  • Using color to add intensity, evoke emotion, and play with lighting

Plus, see how Jazza tackles and troubleshoots two illustrations in contrasting styles, one stylized and cartoonish, the other realistic and complex.

This entertaining and thorough two-hour class is designed for absolutely everyone, whether (like Jazza) you’re a self-taught doodler who loves drawing made-up worlds, or an experienced artist looking to take your character designs from good to great. By the end, you’ll arrive at an illustration that feels intentional, imaginative, and unique to you—and you’ll have skills to get there again and again!


Get personalized project feedback from Jazza! We're excited to share that Jazza will be selecting projects from the class to feature and critique in a bonus lesson launching in the coming weeks. All you need to do is share your project by August 20th, 2020 for consideration. Click on the Projects & Resources tab (desktop only) to submit your project!

This class is appropriate for aspiring and experienced artists alike. Follow along in your medium of choice, on paper or digitally. Even if you're working with different tools, Jazza’s tips and techniques will still apply to your process.
