Sketching characters is such a fun and enjoyable creative activity, but adding the element of color into the mix takes it to a whole new level!

Using the iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil, I’ll share my process for sketching characters and show you how to cleanly apply base colors.

Then we’ll walk through different ways you can easily manipulate those base colors into endless combinations- creating gorgeous, harmonious color palettes.

After that, we’ll talk about the 5 lighting scenarios that work great for character illustrations and how you can refine your painting with background elements and textures.
