About This Class

This is the first class in the 3-part 'Building Character' series on creating a unique character! Join artist Jesse LeDoux — former Art Director of Sub Pop Records and character designer for Disney, Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network — as he designs and sketches a character based on 3 personal attributes. This 28-minute class will open your mind to endless possibilities as you'll explore Jesse's style and watch him create a character.

You should take this class if you're interested in character design and exploring the inner depths of your imagination. Designers, artists, and illustrators of all skill levels welcome. By the end, you'll be ready to sketch and share your own unique character with the class for feedback, inspiration, and encouragement from fellow illustrators!
