About This Class


Create A Character From The Post-Apocalypse!

In this class you will create a cartoon character that could fit into a Post-Apocalyptic world (think Mad Max or Blade Runner style). Keep in mind this should be fun and very stylized. After all this is for kids so nothing too gruesome. Stylistically, draw from a lot of 80's era and mix that with a future, punk world setting. Be creative and have fun with this! 

We will be using pencils, ink, erasers and whiteout pens. Nothing crazy, very cheap and easy to get. Anyone can create these characters!
