Over the past year Glitschka Studios has developed a series of skill based design courses for Lynda.com
. The latest course is called "Drawing Vector Graphics: Color & Detail."
This course covers color theory and exploration, lighting, shadow and highlight detail, additional detailing methods, style selection and everything in between regarding the creation of vector based illustration.
We spent two months designing and refining the content used in the production of this course. We also developed extensive exercise files to support it as well. You can download an example exercise file called "How Color Affects Other Color" here.
With every course we strive to make the experience immersive through a systematic approach. This makes them entertaining, easy to follow and works well for both private and for classroom teaching environments. Below are several illustrations I created specifically for this course and use them to demonstrate various build methods and detailing insights you can use when creating vector based illustration work.

The creation of a skill-based course involves a lot of writing. From initial outlines to final scripts we shoot from in studio. I craft all of it to be as authentic as possible. Authentic meaning it's actually something I'd say to another creative. I spend many hours finessing my word structures and continually simplify the information so it's distilled into distinct clarity. I'm proud of the production value we have achieved with these courses.
