About This Class


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.


At the end of this class you'll be able to create more Fluid characters with Dynamic poses.

Can't wait to see you in Class!

Great class, easy to follow. And great resources given.
I see a huge improvement with just my initial attempts at using this method. I really like blocking in the form that tends to turn into the shape I wanted to use. Great class so far (and I'm not even done just super happy with my sketches)
wow. Patricia is super talented and makes it look so easy...not so easy to do for people like myself. Great course to develop your creative side..
