No previous drawing knowledge is required to start.

In this course you will learn to think like an artist and draw a cartoon guy named Tommy Toon by building up simple 3D shapes. This will give you some firm groundwork to begin learning how to design your own characters and draw from your head.

Drawing cartoons is a great first step in learning to draw without fully mastering anatomy and texture detail. Look for my  "Ultimate Cartoon Drawing" course where I teach more advanced techniques so you can bring your characters to the next level!
