Welcome to the e-course you have been asking for!
Bringing characters to life is my passion. There are basic drawing skills that are needed in order to create the character that you can see in your mind's eye. This e-course is a class that teaches step by step instruction in drawing to create cute characters from your imagination, and bring them to life! I will teach you the concepts I use in illustration as it relates to movement and emotion in the character. Once you learn these drawing skills you can use them to draft out your paintings, make illustrations or design children's books! This is a solid foundation for your future illustration projects.
VIDEO 1: Here we go! I will give an intro to supplies. Then we dive right into learning to draw the face, and drawing the face from different angles. Also facial expressions and mood.
VIDEO 2: Now that we have learned drawing the face, we learn to draw the body from the front. Then drawing the body from the side. Also clothing styles.
VIDEO 3: Now we bring the characters to life! Learning drawing the body in motion. Action poses and bending and twisting.
VIDEO 4: Our little characters will have friends! Learning to draw two figures interacting together and how it tells a story.
VIDEO 5: Finally for fun we learn how to make a few alterations and change our character into an animal! You will see that once you learn the basics, you can draw a wide range of characters.

That is 4 extra weeks after the last video is released for you to replay the videos as much as you like during that time. The website has a forum where students can discuss projects and ask questions. I encourage students to share their artwork in photos on the website. It's a friendly place where we will all cheer each other on in our artistic development. I will be available if anyone has any questions throughout the semester.
