In Skillshare’s unique philosophy, everyone is a teacher, and everyone is a learner. Rather than a traditional lecture format, courses are offered within a global online learning community in which learners collaborate and learn by doing. Instructors are industry leaders who share their skills with anyone who wants to learn. No credits are offered. Founded by online entrepreneurs Michael Karnjanaprakorn and Malcolm Ong, Skillshare’s online “campus” was launched in April 2011. Its catalog has grown from 15 to more than 250 online courses that cover creative arts, entrepreneurship, branding and marketing, lifestyle and technology. The School of MakeOurMark, with courses in photography, illustration and tattooing, was launched in October 2013, and the School of Design went live the following month. Among the instructors who have taught courses are Seth Godin, founder of online marketing firm Yoyodyne, who teaches a class on entrepreneurship; DJ Young Guru, who leads a course on mixing and recording; and actor, writer and director James Franco, whose course focuses on screenwriting for short films. You can begin a Skillshare collaboration by taking an introductory course in a particular area to learn, for example, the fundamentals of Photoshop and expand your knowledge with a five-part, in-depth Photoshop series.

Also, have you ever wanted to turn your cute drawings into short animated gif to help promote your work on Instagram, Twitter atc and even submit to magazines?

In this class I walk you through a project starting with how I sketch out my ideas and colour them both by hand and digitally. I give info on adding textures and charm to your drawings. I walk you through how to scan, trace and present your work and work with textures so that you end up with a useable project. 

As a bonus I go into how, with each project I do, I add an animated element to my work almost every time, it's a great final thouch that can be really eye catching and help you gain more of a following. Check out my gifs below!

There'll also be some really useful tips in how to start out in the business.

This project is perfect for someone wanting to do editorial illustration or just expand their portfolio... or to just have fun! This project requires some basic knowledge of after effects (for the animation bit).

This was for an editorial piece based on Churchil's "Black Dog" metaphor.
