About This Class
Packed full of information teaching on how to ‘read’ and then 'draw' facial expressions.
Understanding facial expression is crucial when it comes to illustrating characters for a story. This class is packed full of information that will help you learn how to ‘read’ facial expressions and then transfer them onto a character that you’ll be drawing.
Explore the six basic emotions – joy, sadness, surprise, anger, disgust and fear. Branching out from these, discover a wider spectrum of emotional possibilities and see how even subtle tweaks to the eyes, eyebrows, nose and mouth can transform your character’s mood.
This class is ideal for budding artists, illustrators, animators and anyone interested in character development.
With more than a dozen picture books published world-wide my character development series teaches every aspect of character design. Whether you’re thinking about self-publishing, designing a one off character for a project or illustrating a publication. Work your way up through all of my classes for support, inspiration and to up-skill or re-fresh your illustration style.
See you in class J

It's one of the best classes on emotions I've seen. I have learned a lot and it was really fun to do the project. It's highly recommendable.
Hi! I'm Nina Rycroft, a picture book illustrator. I worked as a graphic designer in Sydney and London before trying my hand at illustration, with my first picture book 'Little Platypus' receiving a CBCA (Children's Book Council of Australia) Notable Book Award in 2000. Since then I've had more than a dozen picture books published worldwide. I so excited to be able to share everything that I’ve learnt over the years.
If you're interested in illustration, character development, visual storytelling, learning how to draw with more ease and confidence...and of course, picture book illustration, then please follow me!
See you in class :)
