About This Class

By taking my class series “Designing Dinosaurs,” you will learn to draw dynamic dinosaur illustrations through daily practice and detailed instruction. Artists of all levels will benefit from breaking down the anatomy of each animal into simple shapes. The importance of understanding the structure of the skeleton in relation to musculature will be emphasized. For the final lesson of this series, you will utilize your knowledge of dinosaur anatomy to invent a new creature from your imagination.

A well put together lesson. It's straightforward and easy to understand.
This class is fast-paced in a very positive way and includes mostly time lapse videos. Liz Masters leaves much room for individual creativity, which may be daunting for beginning artists or those experimenting with drawing for the first time, but is refreshing for more serious artists who don't need every detail or action spelled out for them. A wonderful class that encourages intuition and personal expression.
Great tips!! Thank you Liz!!
