About This Class

01763fff

Welcome to the first class in my series on cartooning and comic art!

~ In this class I share the basic techniques to designing a cartoon face and explore the visual language of facial expressions by studying the 'looks' of a wide variety of popular cartoon characters. All students are encouraged to share their own drawings and experiments inspired by the material covered in this class.

~ Students of all levels are welcome and no special skills or tools are required. Looking for more cartooning classes?
