This has been the most valuable choice and step I've taken towards my dream of being a professional illustrator. Finally I feel my work is worthy of building a portfolio.

This Could Be Your Reality So Much Sooner Than You Know It...

You wake up on your own. No alarm.

No 45-minute commute in dreadful traffic. You’re working from home.

You waltz into your studio wearing your robe..

Just another day in my studio.”

It’s the first time you truly loved going to work. Nothing feels like work when you love what you do…

You settle into your chair, fire up your Cintiq 22HD, and sip a hot cup of freshly brewed coffee..

(…Careful not to spill a drop on that beauty!)

Fueled with creativity, imagination, and ideas, you begin to paint…

An hour flies by as your passion and ideas come to life… nearly effortlessly. You put down your stylus, look at your work feeling proud and think..

“I made that… 100% from imagination!”

You email your client and run out to meet your friend, Sam, for a cup of coffee. You set your iPhone on the table and start catching up about…

*Ding.* It’s your inbox alert….

“You’ve got two new emails:”

Email #1:
It’s your client. He says, “All I can say is WOW. I love it!”

Email #2:
It’s PayPal. The subject line reads, “You’ve got money.”

You pinch yourself…

It’s real.

People are actually PAYING you to do what you’re passionate about – something you’d happily spend the rest of your life doing for free.

You’ve become a highly respected artist (gotta love when your paintings go viral!) and have a client waitlist a mile long.

My personal goal is to help you make this dream-life your art career reality.

Over the next 6 weeks, I want to help you achieve your own breakthrough. 

I want to personally guide and mentor you, and help you level-up to the next stage as an artist. So you too can earn an income – as an illustrator, concept artist, character designer, or freelance artist!

Hi, I’m David, and I’ll personally be teaching you the fundamentals and skills to paint anything, 100% from imagination as you journey into your dream career.

I’ve spent the last 2 years making my living as an illustrator while traveling the world. I still have to pinch myself to see if it’s real.

Places I’ve called “home” include Budapest, Berlin, and tropical beaches in Thailand and Bali… and I want to give you the keys to do the same!

It didn’t come easy, but the shortcuts I learned along the way will make your journey much, much faster 🙂

I know where you are. I’ve been there.

I’ve had the exact image in my mind that I wanted to paint, but it never turned out like I pictured…

Because I relied so heavily on reference photos and couldn’t bring my own creative ideas to life…

Feeling like I just didn’t have the “talent” to become the artist I wanted to…

And boy, was I terribly slow and lacked confidence…

All that went away when I learned the skills to put exactly what I saw in my mind onto my digital canvas.

It was the most freeing feeling ever…

I could finally express myself, and illustrate the stories and ideas I’d been dreaming of for so long..

And best of all, I started getting paid for my work!

Once I learned the fundamentals and skills I was searching for, I realized how simple it was…

The reality is, I was making it more complicated than it needed to be.

I was trying to learn too much and from too many places at once.

So I boiled it down to simple learning steps that helped me have the breakthrough I’d been dreaming of.

That’s precisely how I’m going to be teaching you during our 6-week journey, as you create your best portfolio piece EVER!

Yup. I’m going to help you unlock the keys to your creativity so you can paint the masterpiece you already have inside your head.

Say goodbye to the frustration of hitting “Ctrl Z” over and over again…

Wanting to huck your tablet out the window (don’t do that, they aren’t cheap!)…

And feeling like you can never finish what you started.

The amounts of "ahh ha," and "that’s how it works" moments is mind boggling. I cant stress it enough, if you want to learn and become a better digital artist, you need to take this course.

For Complete Beginners

Skip the Frustration & Years of Trial-And-Error:

I am new to photoshop and digital drawing. Before this course I was searching through all different sorts of YouTube tutorials on all sorts of topics trying to learn everything I could by myself. This was not really getting me anywhere as I had no structure or method to improve. I was at a point where I didn't know what I should learn next or how to find my inspiration.

This course was the answer to all my headaches.

It is so well structured and gives advice on how to learn to draw quicker. It gives numerous tools and details explanations of why you should follow the program. When something makes sense it is easy to follow and stay motivated.
Sarah Larter

For Intermediate Artists:

Break Through To The Next Level:

I went freelance as a digital artist in 2017, but even though i work in this field i always try to put some time aside for studying. My belief is you need to always keep evolving & improving your skills as an artist.

I really found the course to be very informative, concise & suitable for artists on many levels. I highly recommend Paintable's 'Illustration from imagination' course, to any artists wishing to further their education in digital painting & illustration.

I enjoyed the use of a project brief, being the primary subject that we worked on throughout the course. This gave me a first hand look at the process David uses when working on an actual job, & I definitely picked up some great tools to help increase my productivity, & ability to keep my clients involved throughout my own projects.

This course is well worth the money, & i would not hesitate to send other artists in Paintables direction. You will come away with sound knowledge of fundamentals, along with something special to add to your portfolio

Will This Work For Me?

If you've read this far then I know you're serious, but there could be a few thoughts running through your mind. Things like...

“I don’t have enough time to go through this..”

We’re all busy. I get it. It’s a matter of asking yourself, “is it worth the time to develop the skills to earn an income as a concept artist, digital illustrator, or graphic artist?” If you’re serious about your art then the answer is “YES!”

What’s waiting for you inside is the ultimate shortcut – I’ve condensed 7 years of my personal struggling into a power-packed 6 weeks. This could cut YEARS out of the time it takes you to become a professional artist… so, the question really is, do you have time NOT to do it?


“How is this different to other courses or mentorships?”

This is SO much more than just a “course” or “mentorship”. Illustration From Imagination is the first learning journey of its kind. Learning from a client brief gives you real-life experience, a “learn by doing” experience, and helps you bring theory to life as you complete the portrait you’ll be working on throughout the program.

And being designed for artists who want to go professional (get paid for their art), you’ll leave with the best portfolio piece you’ve done… ever… guaranteed (more on that later). Do you have a “client magnet” portfolio? You will soon…


“How does this compare to art school?”

You’ll find all the elements of art school, without having to take up a mountain of debt or put your life on “pause” and move to another city.

Instead, you’ll get real life experience, you’ll build a portfolio, and you’ll learn how to work from a client brief. Plus, you’ll have all the other benefits like in-depth lessons, mentorship from a tutor, a supportive group of peers, and more. You’ll even get certified for successfully completing the 6 weeks!

And as for the quality of the lessons?

Take a look at what a number of my students have said:

What Students Have to Say About "Illustration From Imagination":

Martin Wielding

My first concerns about the course being too vague or complicated were quickly put to rest, when we had our very first assignment. I was impressed by the structure of the tutorials. I felt that I was always progressing in the right direction thanks to the feedback from David Belliveau and the community.

I have always struggled with motivation because I had no idea where to start. I come from an art background with a degree, so the course is not just for beginners but can help lost souls like me. If anyone wishes to expand their portfolio into digital art, I highly recommend joining the course, for as long as you're willing to put the work into it, you can use the time and resources provided by the course as first step to a career or enjoyable hobby.
Sonja Hecker

What a wonderful and friendly group joined this IFI class!!! We laughed so much and tried to help each other. The main thing to me was, that teachers and students don’t want to force someone to do one special style. Instead everyone was free to do as he likes and as it fits to him/her. The feedback was perfectly adjusted.

I can definitely recommend this course! You will benefit from it and improve your skills. Your background knowledge of painting theory will increase, without listening to boring tutorials. Every theoretical part is explained with examples and some tasks to practice. And your confidence in your own drawing style will increase. That’s what happened to me. When I look at my older drawings, I see that I especially improved in anatomy and how to use color and lighting.
Benjamin O'Donohoe

I was so excited to hear about this course. Initially, I was a little concerned with the cost but even after the first class I could see it had been money well spent!

I've always been a competent drawer but never good enough to go pro, this course changed all of that. With its step by step process to creating solid and powerful pieces, I have so much more confidence in creating new illustrations. Finally I feel my work is worthy of building a portfolio. The group mentality was also a huge benefit, you weren't alone. Seeing others working hard made me want to keep pushing my work as far as I could. This has been the most valuable choice and step I've taken towards my dream of being a professional illustrator.
Raiana Sancho

I have been digital drawing and painting for a few years now, but I've always felt like I was going nowhere with my work. I lacked the patience and knowledge needed to take my art a step further.

This course not only taught me skills I had never taken the time to study before, but by working on very clear, separated modules it showed me what I lacked the most was a good process - where I knew what I was doing (and why) at any given time. It also helped point me in the direction of what next I should be focusing my studies and gave me a really good basis for it. David and Fabian have created an amazing experience here for artists of all levels. They are extremely didactic, attentive and meticulous in making sure people understand what they are trying to teach.I couldn't recommend it more.

“I’m not sure if I want to work as a professional, is this course still for me?”

So, you don’t want to work as a professional, but you want to create professional quality art? Then yes. This is for you. If you want to get your work featured (online or in galleries), or maybe even just take on the occasional commission (and I highly encourage you to, it’s the best feeling in the world!), you’re going to need a strong body of work – a solid portfolio. To create professional quality art or even land the occasional commissioned piece, you need to learn like a professional. And that’s precisely how you’ll be learning through our 6 weeks together.

“I think I’m too old to become a professional artist..”

Art is of the mind, not the body. Believe me, you can earn an income as a concept artist, digital illustrator, or graphic artist no matter how “old” (or young) you are. I didn’t even begin painting properly myself until I was 30. And not long ago, I had a number of students turn professional after they retired from their “pay the bills” job. The “age thing” is a mental roadblock that’s keeping you from realizing your true artistic abilities that simply haven’t been uncovered yet. And together, I’ll help you discover them as we create your stunning portrait together. Yes, “together” because you’ll have mentorship and community support along the way. Fact is, it’s never too late.

“Why should I invest in this, when there’s a ton of free resources available online?”

I call it the “YouTube Vortex” that brings you down a rabbit hole so deep you can’t even find the entrance of how you got there. The same thing happens when scrolling forums, reading articles, and chewing through books. The problem is that nothing is linear. Free content doesn’t provide support, community, mentorship, and feedback. Think about all those unfinished paintings you’ve started and… *look a shiny squirrel*. Yeah, I’m talking about THOSE.

During our time together, you’ll learn everything you need to know to paint anything from imagination by following our simple, step-by-step process (sorta like a Recipe Book) as you complete your best portfolio piece to date.

Don’t just take it from me!

Have Additional Questions?

“Illustration From Imagination” is an interactive digital painting Masterclass, designed to help you level-up from absolute beginner through to seasoned professional.

I’ll walk you through every step of the way, teaching you the “building blocks” of painting that you need to get your ideas down on canvas, exactly the way you imagine them.

You’ll get real-life experience working from a brief, and learn to create essential components like moodboards, lighting schemes & suggestions, color thumbnails, and more. You’ll also learn about the business side, understanding how to work with clients and navigate contracts, so you can emerge confident and ready to earn an income from your art!

There are three main things that set “Illustration From Imagination” apart from other courses:

  1. Finally, a Clear Path:
    Unlike most tutorials or courses that only add a single “piece of the puzzle” – oftentimes leaving you more confused, frustrated and overwhelmed than when you started – “Illustration From Imagination” is the puzzle itself! All you have to do is complete the right steps in the right order. And I’ll be right along side you every step of the way!

  2. Real Life Experience:
    I’ve designed this entire program to feel like an immersive game, or “simulation”. As you go through each lesson, you’ll be working from a brief to create your very own masterpiece. I’ll give you the guiding theory, support, and techniques, and then you get complete creative control of your projects – so you can apply it to any style, genre, or ideas you’d like! Along the way you’ll also learn what it’s like to work for a client, and after 6 weeks you’ll be left with your first true “client magnet”.

  3. Close Support & Mentorship: I’ll be your coach and mentor the entire journey – pointing you in the right direction when you need help, giving you support and feedback when you’re feeling stuck, or even just cheering you on from the sidelines when you need a bit of motivation! When you enroll, you’ll also get lifetime access to our Private Community, where you can connect with other IFI students and get help and support every single day!

If you have ideas in your imagination, but struggle to get them down on canvas, this is for you!


If you have a burning passion for the arts, and would love to earn an income from a skill you’re deeply passionate about, this is for you!


If you’d like to paint at the professional level as the artists you look up to, and not take years and years to get there, this is definitely for you!

Before we start the class, you’ll have the chance to pick one of three briefs (or make your own, if you’d like).

Every week for 6 weeks, I’ll then send you a new set of video tutorials & instructions. I’ve built everything around a set of downloadable exercises, so you can start practicing all the theory right away.

Once you’ve gone through the “theory” part, I’ll then give you pointers and directions on how to apply that theory to your own brief and project, and show you walk-throughs of how I work on my own.

By the end of the program, you’ll have mastered the fundamentals of digital painting, and used them to create a spectacular, professional-looking portfolio piece!

And if all of that sounds intimidating, don’t worry! I’ll be there to support you along every step of the way! Every week, I’ll be recording group feedback & critiques, in which I point out the most common mistakes I see, and how to fix them. I’ll also be hanging out in the community, giving feedback & support, and helping you level up as an artist.

Illustration From Imagination will officially begin on Thursday, June 27th, and run for 6 weeks.

Remember that you will get lifetime access to all material in the program, so even if you can’t make all 6 weeks, you can catch up later in your own time 🙂

Yes, absolutely! I want to guarantee that you succeed, so I’ll be with you every step of the way.

Each week, I’ll be recording critiques and feedback videos, in which I point out the mistakes I see, and how to fix them.

You’ll also have access to a private community of peers going through the course at the same time as you. You can get support & feedback here any time, and I’ll be hanging out in there as well making sure questions get answered 🙂

The only thing you definitely need is a tablet of some sort, whether that’s a graphic tablet like a Wacom or Bamboo, or a display tablet like an iPad Pro or Cintiq. You won’t be able to follow along with a mouse.

I’ll be teaching in Adobe Photoshop – and while I highly recommend it, you’ll be able to follow along in any software of your choice, whether that’s Krita, Procreate, Clip Studio, Corel Painter, or others.

“Illustration From Imagination” is for intermediate digital painters. If you understand the basics of painting and can copy reference photos, but would now like to break through to the next level as an artist, where you can bring the stories and ideas in your head to life – well then this is perfect you!

The course has been designed as the perfect next step after One Week Portraits, or the “Foundations” class in the Digital Painting Academy.

Are you a complete beginner, or haven’t gone through either of those two classes? No problem – as I’m including both of them in the bonus bundle for this course 🙂 I recommend you go quickly work your way through them first, and as you’ll have lifetime access to this course, you can simply move onto these lessons whenever you’re ready.

Absolutely not! I didn’t have either when I started out.

I’ll show you tips & tricks to improve your drawings in Photoshop, and show you how to paint heads & portraits from any angle.

The deadline to register for Illustration From Imagination is Sunday, June 23rd.

The class itself will start on Thursday, June 27th, and then run weekly for 6 weeks

Truth be told, if I can’t get you results, I don’t want your money!

I’ve taught 4500+ students in the past, almost all of which have seen incredible growth and progress – so I know this works!

The only caveat? You need to do the work! Unfortunately we’re not in the Matrix, and I can’t just download these skills into your brain (yet). Watching the videos isn’t enough, you need to actually follow along with the exercises. But if you do, I promise you’ll improve leaps and bounds, and paint your best ever painting by the end of the 6 weeks.

I’m so confident you’ll see results that I’m offering a 365-day money back guarantee on the course. If you’re not 100% satisfied or feel like you haven’t improved, simply email me with proof that you at least tried to follow along with the exercises, and I’ll give you a prompt and friendly refund, no questions and no hard feelings 🙂

What Is It Worth To You?

Let’s talk about the value of this course, the tuition, and what this will be worth to you..

What is it worth to develop a world-class style?

…To become a well known and respected digital artist?

……To be able to paint at a professional level, as good as (or even better) than the artists you look up to?

……What is it worth to not feel limited by your technical skills, and finally be able to paint all those incredible ideas you have in your imagination?

What is it worth to cut out years of frustration and slow progress?

…How much time could you save if you had the exact step-by-step system, that guides you along the way and makes sure you don’t pick up bad habits?

……What could you achieve if you could focus all those years of struggle on the truly important stuff, like pushing your style and working on your dream projects?


What is it worth to earn an income from something you’re TRULY passionate about?

…What is it worth to fire your boss, so you can live and work on your own terms.. whenever and wherever you’d like?

……To spend your time getting paid to do something you’re so passionate about, that you would happily do for free?

………How would you feel when you’ve earned enough to repay this course (and then some!) off your first creative commission?


🌟 And I’m going to be straight with you here. “Illustration From Imagination” is not some cheap tutorial or program. It’s a world class, well-designed and highly-effective system that gets you results.
