Description

This Course is about exploring drawing approach based on structural construction by using the essential drawing tools such as paper and pencils. You`ll see that drawing is fun and an exciting process! The online Course before you is about chracters and how to create them the cartoony way! I am privileged to share with you my vast experiences with cartooning from my own endeavors, along with working for Disney, Warner Bros. and Steven Spielberg`s AMBLIMATION, A Division of Universal Pictures, Ltd. among many others.

And this is just a beginning... For sketching is how you begin the drawing... ANY drawing, no matter if it`s an architectural design, background study, anatomical research or planning the animation, illustration or comics strip storytelling!

The Course could be completed in a month or at the Student`s leisure, for it is structured with comprehensible chapters addressing beginners and those polishing their existing skills concerning how to draw. The Course consists of videos only, because all you need is to start drawing, without any additional excercies - at least at this particular stage.

So, let's get to work!

Who is the target audience?
  • Novices and already experienced alike are welcome to learn and/or brush off and polish their skills. Working professionals might be the group this course wouldn't be for.

Every drawing needs to be freely scribbled with light strokes that define the inter-connecting shapes before being well defined with amends and more decisive strokes

From time to time we need to go back and see how well we are warmed up and if the exercises provide good results

From time to time we need to go back and see how well we are warmed up and if the exercises provide good results - and here we do it again. IMPORTANT - we really don’t need to repeat this checking out. Just in case, to have more  of the drawing hand control
8. Interlude 2
01:18

Drawn characters don’t always pose passively - they tend to be dynamic and it is up to the cartoonist to provide the groundwork with shapes that connect into a sensible whole
9. Roughing the Figure Out (Shelly)
10:15

Spatial relationships are important for avoiding flat appearance on the drawing surface - here we are dealing with essential perspective
10. Shapes in Space
06:26

The so-called ‘funny animals’ are the ‘bread & butter’ of the art of cartooning; but human stylised characters are equally important, both in comics and animation
