About This Class

Welcome to my, "Character Design Class - The Power of the Silhouette."  

57b19bcc

This class is designed to help students become more effective at creating Character Design concepts from their imagination.  You will start with the basic silhouette and learn why that is so impactful to the creation process.  With a strong definable silhouette our character designs will be more memorable.  This also allows for a great creative spark in the imaginative process.  You will then learn how to take that silhouette and draw in the inner details for the character concept.  Then you will learn how to create depth and dimension to this character by adding values.  Finally we will add color to the character design to bring it to life.

In this course, I will be explaining the Character Design process while using Clip Studio Paint.  You are welcome to use whichever method you choose.  Many of these techniques will translate to various art applications and even traditional methods.

I am here to answer any questions you have concerning this course and I hope you find this to be a valuable learning experience.

Thank you for considering my course!

Sincerely,

Robert A. Marzullo
