About This Class


In this class, you will learn how to draw this muscle-bound brute! Can't have comics without one of these dudes, right? We will talk more about proportions, anatomy, and design.

First, we will work off a traditional comic book hero type and then make adjustments to get the massive monster you see here. This can be a fun and informative exercise to understand the difference with character design.

After you get these proportions in place, practice drawing them in a variety of poses. It will help you to feel more comfortable with the subject at hand.

I hope you enjoy this class and I am here if you have any questions or recommendations for me!

Thank you for watching!
