How To Create an Illustration from Start to Finish

Congratulations, you got the job! You are hired to create the cover art for a book. Now how do you create the Illustration?

In this video, I will share my process, step by step, how to create an Illustration. So grab your pencil and notebook, class is in session!

Step 1:
