Hi everyone,

I've been illustrating for years and want to start getting into children's book illustration.  Can anyone recommend a good online course?

I've found an online illustration course on Make Art That Sells is it any good?  Are there any other kids book illustration courses out there?

Thanks,

Si

Welcome to the writers of the future forum Simon. I think your question would have a better chance on the illustrator's forum. I would help if I could but, I'm a writer, not an illustrator.

@storysinger Isn’t this the illustrator portion of the forum? This is posted under art and illustration.

Sadly, I don’t know of any good online illustrator courses.

@storysinger Many thanks for your reply. I thought I posted in the "Art & Illustration" section?
I know this may be a silly question, but where is the illustrator's forum if this isn't it?

Thanks again...

There is a forumite, that could help (@clfors). I think she does both contests.

Clip studio Paint offers free tutorials to those who have purchased their software. Their software is a. reasonably priced and b. versatile enough to create entries that fall within IOTF's specified entry guidelines. Also, this link may be helpful: https://tinyworkshops.com/best-childrens-book-illustration-classes-online/

Good luck! Amy

Somehow I lost my Guthington profile, but it's me. Amy Wethington = Guthington = Physa42. Physa is the freshwater snail I did my graduate and post graduate work on, 🙂

@simon-brown hi! I’m a writer and illustrator. Did you find what you were looking for. I actually don’t know what courses on illustration are good to take as I’m primarily self-taught. The Illustrator articles on the Illustrators of the future have some cool advice and insights though.
