Welcome Cartooning 101: A guide to the illustrative language of comics and cartoon art!

In this class I'll be teaching how to draw a cartoon body. We begin with the basics of proportion, torso styles, limbs, hands, and feet. Next, we'll apply gravity to the situation and give our new character a sense of balance. Then we apply our skills by creating a series of emotive and action-packed poses!
