Do you ever feel that your characters could be more lively, expressive, and dynamic? Or are you looking for more ideas to take your character designs****to the next level? Then, this class is for you!

Many of you, after taking my class about Stylized Characters Design, have shared that you would like to learn and practice moreabout character design!

And so, in this class, we will level up, and I’ll take you through the journey of m aking your characters more lively, expressive, and dynamicby using simple shapes and drawing poses and gestures.

We will create many little stories using character poses, gestures, clothes, and props, culminating in creating a group of characters - a stylized portrait of your friends, family, or a character's lineup for a movie or a game.

You will gain a solid skills for developing your character design and style further. You will learn:

  • what brushes do I often use to create my illustrations

  • how to use simple shapes to sketch the body parts quickly
  • how to apply proportions to make your characters believable
  • how to work with the spine and weight to make your characters more dynamic
  • how to apply basic perspective to create depth in your characters

We will talk about the importance of gestures and body language so you can make your characters appear confident, shy, happy, or elegant. And you will get inspired by variousexamples on how to color and finish your sketches.

You will also get two creative challenges for mood and simple storytelling while adding props to your characters.

But wait, there is more!

You will learn how to approach sitting, walking, running, jumping, and floating poses with lots of quick tips and professional advice from working with clients.

Last but not least, we will talk about what to consider when you will be creating a group and composition consisting of more characters.

I will be usingProcreate 5X, but feel free to use any other drawing software or medium you prefer.

In addition, you will also get a bunch offreebies to use with this class:
