About This Class

Learn how to draw eyes and see how the size and placement of eyes can dramatically change the look of your character.

Build your knowledge and your library of eyes by drawing a series of the round, square, rectangular, down-turned, leaf and almond shaped eyes, and see how shape, size and placement of the eyes on the face can completely change the look of your character. 

With a focus on eyes, this class is ideal for budding artists, illustrators, animators and anyone interested in character development.

Use this class to:-

Hi! I'm Nina Rycroft, a picture book illustrator. I worked as a graphic designer in Sydney and London before trying my hand at illustration, with my first picture book 'Little Platypus' receiving a CBCA (Children's Book Council of Australia) Notable Book Award in 2000. Since then I've had more than a dozen picture books published worldwide. I so excited to be able to share everything that I’ve learnt over the years. 

If you're interested in illustration, character development, visual storytelling, learning how to draw with more ease and confidence...and of course, picture book illustration, then please follow me!

See you in class :)
