The illustrations by visual artist Ulises Mendicutty have some clear protagonists: vibrant colors, drama, the barrio culture, and sometimes even a little perreo. Many of them tell stories that are not completely digested so that the audience can create their own interpretations. His work has a very marked and strong style and he has collaborated with clients such as Penguin Random House, Slanted Publishers, and Vips, among others.

In this course, Ulysses guides you to find your own style so you can capture it in your illustrations, through the analysis of your influences and references. Then, learn how to use Procreate as your sketchbook and review the main tools so that you achieve powerful illustrations with your personal touch.

Make the first outline and work step by step on the reduction, light, shadow, and application of color, providing all the details that reflect your style.
