The Art of Sketching: Transform Your Doodles into Art by Mattias Adolfsson (online course review)

The Art of Sketching: Transform Your Doodles into Art is an online drawing course by Swedish freelance illustrator Mattias Adolfsson. His beautiful detailed illustrations are very popular.

If I remember correctly, his first few published sketchbooks were sold out very quickly because his work is good and he has a huge following online. I've followed his work for years.

In this online art course hosted on Domestika, you'll get to learn how Mattias draws his charming characters, scenes and objects from everyday life. It's a behind the scenes look at how he thinks and draws. It's a hands-on course where you can draw along.

The course starts with him talking about his career, and how he transitioned from working for a big game developer to be a full-time illustrator. He also talks his influences, and about how his work has evolved and got noticed and grew in popularity.

The lessons and practice exercises are easy to follow. Instructions are clear and concise. There are lots of tips on how you can expand your creativity and look for ideas. The subjects are simple to draw, such as your stationery, self caricature in cartoony style and how to draw form, buildings, objects in 3 dimensions or isometric look. This is a course that's suitable for beginners with no knowledge of drawing. All you need is pen with waterproof ink, watercolour and paper.
