You will work on projects which include character design, book cover design, perspective drawing, 3D character, and book layout. We begin with simple shape concepts and work our way up to color language to approach posing, expressions, basics of anatomy, movement, and storytelling through character design. By the end of the class, we’ll have several fully developed characters, book sheets, and more, and you’ll learn about what it takes to get your audience hooked on your unique story! New projects and subjects will be explored, so both new and continuing students are welcome. *This class is a part of our Certificate in Fine Arts Program and will give each student one point towards their CiFA certification.
