Course summary

Illustration & Concept Art at University Centre Doncaster is a course built on the fundamental principles of perspective, composition, form, light, depth, colour, and anatomy with drawing at its core. We stand for the mastery of these fundamentals as essential building blocks leading to visual development using traditional and digital techniques in synthesis to create artwork, which is individual to you and commercially focussed on your career. This course aims to replicate, as closely as possible, the attitude, environment, and practices found in professional studios. The focus is on transferable, traditional creative skills working hand in hand with high technology. Acquire advanced professional skills leading to a specialist path. Develop and produce a portfolio of creative and professional work. Work on commercial and live competition projects. Identify a chosen specialist area and develop your portfolio accordingly. If you love drawing and design and are willing to commit to serious hard work and dedication, there’s a place here for you. If you wish to continue studying beyond this course, it will provide you with a strong academic basis to do so. Upon successful completion, graduates will have the necessary entry requirements for the BA (Hons) Illustration & Concept Art Top-Up course.
