Professional Artist, Thingsbydiana

Do you want to design fascinating creatures in your unique style? If you’re unsure where to begin, I am here to help you get started on creating your own dynamic, original characters.

Using POSCA Pens as a medium, build up your fundamentals to achieve what you want from your imagination onto paper. In this course, you’ll learn how to master the basics of working with POSCAs, from shading, linework, and color combinations to composition and concept building. You will also learn the basics of monster anatomy to flesh out believable fantasy creatures in my signature style and see my work process.

This course is for people who want to create unique creatures using POSCA Pens. You don’t need to be an expert in anatomy, linework, or shading, but if you are, that’s great! You’ll be working within your skill level and yet learn to build from your imagination with the easy process I will be introducing.

This course will enable you to use Posca Pens to create monster illustrations straight from your imagination. We will go over how to utilize your skills to approach your designs with a systemic approach.

About the Instructor



I’m Diana Chan, a part-time designer and a full-time artist from Canada. I’ve worked as an events coordinator, a project manager, and a designer, so communicating easy to digest information has always been important to me. I’ve been a designer for 5 years, and I often bring design concepts to my illustration work. I enjoy simplifying difficult concepts for people, and I love having an opportunity to share my thought process as an artist.
