Get more comfortable drawing people in scenes and within interesting compositions!
Drawing people and creating scenes with characters is a lot of fun! It can add a lot of personality and stories to your illustrations. You can also use this skill for your own creative business and/or clients in games, animation, and publishing!
In this class, we will go on a journey of designing stylized characters and layouts using simple shapes, perspective, and composition fundamentals.
To celebrate summer and to relax while drawing, we will be placing the characters in a fun little story moment of a summer picnic in the garden, by the seaside, on the forest meadow, or wherever you like!
