You'll understand the fundamentals of character design to create interesting characters that people will fall in love with. All of this done step by step, in an easy to follow process.

If you're tired of courses that tell you what to do but don't actually SHOW you the process, I'm here to tell you that this is NOT one of those courses!

In this course, we'll be going through both theory and practical activities.

In fact, if you follow this course from the beginning to the very end, you'll have your own amazing character completely drawn in several poses.

Not only that, but this course comes with several resources to help you on your character artist journey.

Including downloadable reference sheets to help you with anatomy and proportions, to amazing websites that help you find the perfect color palette and reference images for your character!
