About This Class

When it comes to any visual storytelling medium, having lush and emotive backgrounds and interiors for your characters to inhabit can add new life and dimension to your story. A well conceptualized, drafted and executed interior space can serve all kinds of vital storytelling functions; from establishing key settings, painting a fuller picture about the character or characters that use the space and helping to assert story critical themes, messages and moods.

This is a tutorial style class, where I'll walk you through the creation of an original interior space from beginning to end. In this class, we will start by considering the space and asking ourselves five key questions - the answers to these questions will be used throughout the creation of our interior space.

This class is specially for cartoonists, illustrators and animators that want to get a better handle on creating thoughtful interiors that help enrich their stories.
