Perhaps you have an ambition to improve your drawing skills, or just want to pick up some basics if you are a novice; but you have never known where to start in learning new abilities.

Fortunately, veteran Sonic the Comic artist Nigel Dobbyn is here to help you! Nigel will be running two art classes at Summer of Sonic, each aiming to provide a ‘masterclass’ on digital inking and digital colouring. Each art class will run for one hour at 12:00 and 16:00 and anyone is welcome to attend, regardless of artistic ability. These will be run in a room especially set aside, away from the noise of the main convention halls.

The classes will have limited capacity, so places will be given on a first come, first served basis to those at the front of the queue. The queuing area for the art class will be clearly marked on the day.

Sketch-hogs out there will not want to miss this rare opportunity!

  1. Count me in! :D

  2. Is this just inking and coloring, or do we learn basics of drawing Sonic and friends too?

    And is inking and coloring limited to Adobe Photoshop, or are other ‘free’ programs (e.g. GIMP) taken into account too?

  3. I don’t suppose there will be any precedence for people who were actually booked on the class last year and then had it cancelled on them (for admittedly understandable circumstances, but still)?

  4. Wow this sounds so awesome and it’s on my birthday too I’d love to come and have a lesson but I can’t find anywhere to buy the tickets? Could someone please help me out and point me in the right direction :) I’d be really great full.

  5. This is great. I guess that I bring my laptop then. I hope that there’s some stuff about SAI because I love that program.
