The One-Palette Illustrator: Discover How Color Works in Your Art

If you've ever wondered how to make colour seem less random, this class is for you! Join Illustrator and Top-Teacher Tom Froese as he guides you through his own approach to using colour. Spoiler alert: it involves very limited palettes!

Join Tom as he shows you what it means to be a One-Palette Illustrator, and how it’s far more powerful than you might think. As usual, you'll go through some key insights and theory in The Primer, and then do some self-discovery and personal palette building in The Exercises. And, of course, you'll get to put it all together in a juicy Final Project: two illustrations using your own personal palettes: one set of simple icons in a strict palette and then a more complex scene that builds on your theme, using a more varied palette.

Who is This Class For?

This class is largely geared toward digital illustrators (illustrators working with digital tools) but anyone hoping to learn more about how colour works in art and illustration, and even a bit of colour theory, will benefit from this class. Some experience working with digital illustration tools is recommend.

Why One-Palette?

Being a One-Palette illustrator is all about bringing more consistency and confidence to your illustration, all the while making it easier to choose from the 16.7 million possible colours in the digital space! It's about knowing more about the colours you love and how you can make that work with how you want to illustrate!
