I‘ve not done animals before and you made it so easy by breaking things down into shapes. I’m not fond of insects so enjoyed the other modules more. Lots of fun! It was like being a kid again – and that was many, many moons ago! I highly recommend this class.

Sue Jorgensen, Australia

All of the lessons are a treasure trove of information, fun and interesting to watch and make drawing animals accessible. Previously, I didn’t realize I could create beautiful animal works, but Paivi makes it so easy to follow along and she gives good tips and advice to refine your technique as you go. She is one of the best art teachers in the online world, the real deal. Your art I.Q. will expand by leaps and bounds if you listen to what she says. And you will want to take every class she has to offer.

Supplies – Pens and Paper!

Supplies for Animal Inkdom - Pen and Paper

At the minimum, you will need a pen and paper.
A thin-tipped black ink drawing pen (for example, Copic Multiliner 0.3) and smooth paper are recommended but you can start with any pen and paper and grow your arsenal with the class.

These can also be useful:

  • White correction pen or fluid for covering small accidents.
  • A variety of drawing pens (for example, Copic Multiliners from 0.05 to 1.0)
  • A black brush pen if you want to quickly ink large areas (for example, Copic Multiliner with a small brush tip)
  • Colored pencils and/or watercolors for coloring.
  • A pencil and an eraser for sketching if you feel unsure at the beginning.
  • gel medium or paper glue if you want to make collages
  • Photos of your favorite wild animals for reference.
Animal Inkdom, an online art class by Paivi Eerola of Peony and Parakeet

Animal Inkdom isn’t about perfecting every line but building a world of imagination inspired by wild animals, motifs, and patterns. You can start small and then move toward bigger illustrations.

This class inspired me to open up more to my imagination and sense of playfulness, while still challenging and growing my style and creativity.
