If you follow along with the lectures, by the end of this workshop you will have produced five full colour characters for you to share with the world!
Long term results will be achieved by taking in all the drawing and photoshop tips shared throughout the course and then applying these to your own characters. The more you draw, the better you will become!
Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud and Wacom Drawing Tablet
In this course I’ll be taking you through my general thought process when designing characters. Starting with their personalities, then bringing in visual elements that will make the character believable, using simple shapes as my foundation, the rough sketch, the inking stage and finally adding colour and shadows!
I’ll be conducting this course using Adobe Photoshop and a Wacom tablet – but if you’d rather follow along using traditional materials, the core teachings in this course can be applied to other mediums as well.
Who this course is for:
Anyone who wants to learn cartooning using an easy to follow step-by-step process
