More about this course

In this intermediate class you are going to learn, step by step how to draw a realistic bubble using 100% vectors. 

Not only that, but you will also learn how to is it that any transparent object is to be understood when you look at it, so you will be translating it into your canvas in an efficient and effective way.

We will be using Affinity Designer but should you prefer to use any other vector software of your choice, you're welcome to do so, as long as you know the basics plus concepts such as layering, transparencies, blurs, noise, and of course, the use of the pen tool and some other of the most common tools used in vector software. 

The course project

The final project for this class is the creation of this beautiful 100% vector bubble that we will be creating from the very first lessons together and step by step, so you can see how I go about it and follow along with me.
