Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the prerequisites to join the course?

    This is the advanced Adobe Illustrator course, so before you join you should have some basic knowledge of the software and how to use it. If you’re brand new to digital illustration, then you should first complete our Adobe Illustrator Fundamentals course, which we created for beginners. This will introduce you to the basics of drawing, color, type and fonts, effects and patterns, and more. Once you’ve completed this you can move on to the advanced course, but if you already know the basics then you can join right now.

  • What is the best preparation to become an illustrator?

    You can start by taking these courses! We created this advanced Adobe Illustrator course to build on the beginners’ course; together, they should give you all the knowledge needed to become a professional illustrator. As well as teaching you new techniques, there’s also a whole chapter on workflow speed, so you’ll learn how to work more efficiently. You can’t learn everything overnight, so it’s important to practice your new illustration skills regularly; this is also a great way to build up a portfolio of work to impress future clients!

  • How do I become a successful freelance artist?

    First, you’ll need practical skills and knowledge, so start by completing this course, paying careful attention to the techniques we teach and taking thorough notes as you go. When you’re ready, search the Fiverr marketplace to discover which services are in demand. (Hint: Look for gigs with high numbers of reviews and queued orders – these are the most popular!) Once you’ve found a niche to focus on, create some gigs and be sure to provide a fantastic experience for every buyer.

  • How can I start working as an illustrator with no previous experience?

    Just start small! One of the best things about working as a freelancer is having the power to choose how many projects you take on. Many of Fiverr’s most successful illustrators started as part-timers, working in the evenings or at weekends. If you’re at school or college, or you have another job, then working as a freelance illustrator here on Fiverr could be a great way to earn extra money! Longer term, you could become successful enough to freelance full-time and build a career in illustration.

  • Do you think that digital art is making hand-drawn illustration obsolete?

    No, digital art and hand-drawn illustrations appeal to different people in different ways. There are advantages and disadvantages to both, so hand-drawn illustrations will never become obsolete. Digital art can be easier to use online or in animations, since it doesn’t need to be scanned or photographed. It’s also possible to create a more predictable, uniform finish to digital art. Hand-drawn illustrations are known for their uniqueness and character; no two are ever identical! Even so, more and more people are outsourcing their illustration projects to digital artists working online.

  • What’s your best advice for an aspiring illustrator?

    Follow your dreams! If illustration is your passion, then as well as earning money you’ll get great job satisfaction from working in this niche. Of course, it won’t always be easy, and you’ll face challenges when you first start out, but keep trying – and always keep learning. One of the best ways to learn and improve is to look at the work of other talented illustrators. Look at the styles they use before trying to develop a distinctive style of your own, and take inspiration from their success!
