What are our courses on scientific reptile illustration?

Our courses are made up of a series of videos that students can watch as many times as they wish at their convenience. The level of the videos and the level of demand of the classes increases as the content is developed. Each student will be able to communicate with the course teacher via e-mail. At the end of the course, the student will be assigned an activity that will be reviewed and commented by the teacher.

We focus on providing illustration techniques necessary when depicting reptiles. We discuss what materials to use to best illustrate certain parts of the animal and also teach students how to observe and research to find better results when drawing a reptile.

Although there are many drawing media and techniques, our courses focus on providing illustration techniques in watercolor, colored pencil and digital drawing.

Objectives of the reptile illustration course

The objectives of this course are clear: we want to teach the student to have compositional and aesthetic criteria, we want to teach the proper techniques to represent the skin of reptiles, their details and morphology. We are not only interested in the techniques, but also in the individual capacity to observe, investigate, analyze and synthesize information.

Where to put into practice the knowledge acquired in the course?

Illustration is a necessary activity in different fields of work. Nowadays it is very important for a marketing and advertising agency to have an illustrator. Likewise, publishers and magazines make use of these professionals for their information issues. Although reptiles are not the latest trend, there are many professions that talk about this: scientists, university professors, experts and animal protectors, among others.
