Ilustración de personajes y mural street art – Curso online de Fab Ciraolo

October 22, 2019 1 By Peter Engel


Hi, I’m Fab Ciraolo, an artist
and illustrator from Santiago de Chile. I use drawing,
illustration and painting, to disassemble
and reinvent popular imagery. You can see my work in different places, from my website to social media, and even in countries like China, printed on all kinds
of everyday objects. I love feeling
that my work is simple and direct, that visual art allows me to generate my own ideas freely. Through my work I seek to put across
ideas of change, freedom and renewal. It’s important to show that the creative process
is a fun moment in which we are
our own judges and teachers. In this course, you’ll learn to reinterpret
your own emblematic character. I’ll show you my workflow through
an illustration of Gabriela Mistral, Nobel Prize for Literature,
in which we’ll practise sketching, color and background
among many other things. The aim is to immerse yourself in a liberating,
fun process in every sense, and as a result build
your own main character, and then show it up on a wall. First, I’ll talk
about the importance of research, and the character-building process. I’ll tell you
about searching for graphic material that gets you closer
to your character’s essence. Then I’ll show you
the process of hand sketching, which will be the first approach
to our character’s face, and that we will later
finish up digitally. I’ll show you my Frankenstein process, which involves joining
the model’s head with the body, and then sketching the body, getting an integrated version
of the character. We’ll play with color and I’ll show you
how to work on the skin, clothes, and other objects. I’ll make a photo-collage
to create the background, and then I’ll give you tips
on how to add filters and textures that will help you achieve
the right texture. We’ll carry out a final appraisal,
taking the time to observe and work on the details
before finishing up the illustration. Using my personal grid, I’ll show you
how to scale up your drawing to be sent to the printers. Last, I’ll show you
my complete paste-up process, to transfer our character to a wall. For this course,
you needn’t be an accomplished draftman, but you need
a thorough knowledge of Photoshop and great passion
for digital illustration. For this reason, you’ll need a computer or tablet
with access to this program, materials for the paste-up,
and a wall to practise on, which can be in your own room. This course is aimed at designers,
illustrators or commercial artists who want to create their character
from a different perspective. Character Illustration
