  • Maja

Alright, first of all I have to say Dan is a really great teacher. He explains everything to the details which is really helpful even for someone who is familiar with this program. But, since i signed up for the Mastery and already had a basic course of his, this one was toooooo long with numerous repeating and to be honest, at the end was really exhausting ... another big downside was a constant mixing of other Adobe programs. I'm quite good in them, but for beginners this would be literally a definition of a nightmare. The topic should be Illustator itself.. However , I'm looking forward to the course about Ae

  • Luca

Very helpful and interesting. I'll recommend it!

  • Muhammad

I have been using Adobe Illustrator for about 4 years but I still feel that my expertise in using the software is still very little and I hope to learn many things from this course. Unfortunately, most of the tutorials in this course are basic things that I already know, I even know tricks that are better and faster than those taught in the video. As for the new tricks that I learned, it didn't really help me to improve my expertise in my specialty, Illustration and character design.

  • graphichouse1

It was really great. I learned a lot. Highly recommended to all!

  • Tent

Well I really enjoyed this course. I have learned some important tips and tricks as well as ideas. But in 1 or 2 place the tutorial instruction did not work.
Any way this really really amazing and wow video.

DANIAL SCOTT IS AN EXTREMELY GOOD DESIGNER AS WELL AS AN INSTRUCTOR. HE IS REALLY AWESOME "DANE LOVES ADOBE!" and I am also gonna love that thing.... all the topics were nicely covered and preached well. The weird thing was I couldn't contact my instructor. Maybe he is pretty much busy in making an updated and cool stuff for us.... THE INSTRUCTOR IS ONE MAN ARMY in his knowledge about creating graphics!

  • sk_virtuoso

I learn and refresh many important topics, thanks ..

  • Wendy

I am a professional graphic designer and thought that maybe I could brush up on my Illustrator skills and maybe also learn a few new tricks. I did learn more about the tools in Adobe Illustrator but it was not done easily with this course.

On occasion the instructor would call a tool by the wrong name. At times he would attempt to create an effect on an image and it wouldn't work.

I lost track of how many lessons I had to eventually resort to using another source like Adobe help or other websites. And that was even after I found his transcripts!

The fact that some of the lessons could only be done on a Mac (and I have a PC) is ridiculous. That's something every instructor should consider before putting a course together.

At least, unlike my high school daughter's computer science teacher, he did not turn on Infinity Wars while he was expecting us to go on to do the lesson without him.

  • ernikz

It could be better to give more ideas on some specific topics like website design and UI/UX design too. Some theory part is also required to make a full fledged package that can make someone to earn from freelancing websites with confidence.

  • renelisabreur

Excellent, Dan is a great teacher, loved the course!

  • designwall

It's great course though I'm a experienced design consultant. I learned lot of extra helpful tips and tricks for use Adobe Illustrate which allow me to fully utilize the Illustrator. Thank you Daniel for keep our hopes up.

You're one step away

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!
