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!

Excelent, I recommend
I really enjoyed this class. It showed me different perspectives on gestures and motions. Thanks! I look forward to following more of your classes. P.S. Love your portuguese accent. :)
Your take on gesture drawing is dynamic and fun. The idea to take a simple gesture and then push it further makes gesture more personable. I will try to do at least one everyday. Great Job!
