Join Over 4.000 Students!

Learn how to create a Dynamic Character with a Strong Presence using Gesture Drawing, one of the fundamentals of Drawing! 

This Class is suited for any level of Drawing, either if you want to up your Character Design skills or to learn some of the basics.


For the Class you'll need either a Pencil + Piece of Paper or a Drawing Tablet + Drawing Software of your choice!

I'll be using Manga Studio with my drawing tablet but you're free to use whatever you feel more used to since the important thing to do here is just practice. Improve your Figure Drawing skills with your favourite tools.


At the end of this class you'll be able to create more Fluid characters with Dynamic poses while improving your general Figure Drawing and Gesture Drawing skills.

Take your Gesture Drawing to a new Level!

Can't wait to see you in Class!
