Growing up with animated Disney films, I´ve always been fascinated by their extraordinary drawing style. It was easy to fall inlove with those characters and inspired me to pursue a career in arts and animation later on.

May be you are just like me and you´d love some day to be able to do this for a living, or even just for fun or for your kids?

Now, that I have been working in the field of animation as a character designer amongst other things, I have discovered an easy and understandable way to approach drawing the faces of the characters I used to love as a kid. And in this course I´m going to share this method with you, so you can, already now, start practising and get ahead with your drawing skills right now.

I wish I had that knowledge when I started drawing myself. But now we are here, in the digital era, the time of endless possibilies and access to knowledge from the other side of the globe.

I´m thrilled to have this opportunity to help you discover your inner potential that you think you don´t have.

Talent is not required. In fact, talent is overrated. It´s technique and pracitse that is at the core of great drawing skills.

So what will you learn here:

- An easy technique on how to create a structure of the female Disney-like face

- How to see the anatomy even with untrained eye

- How to draw different shapes of mouths

- How to draw noses from the front and in profile

- How draw eyes from different sides

- Find the volume of a chunk of hair

- Give emotions to your characters

- How to practise without any effort so that you teach your subconscious mind to "see" the proportions

I´m going to give you insights from my professional life and incouragement that you can do it too, no matter what you believe today.
