In this class you will learn simple and proven tools and techniques to create dynamic and realistic figures. Along with the knowledge in the class you will also get expert mentorship and guidance to help you learn and improve fast.
What will I learn in the class?
Growing up I loved to draw characters from my favorite cartoons or video games. My dream was to be a character designer for Batman the TV series or the next Street Fighter video game.
Transitioning from student to professional was a struggle. Every time I applied for jobs, my portfolio was rejected or ignored.
I realized that one of the skills I was missing was figure drawing. Although, I had some drawing experience, my figures were flat and I couldn’t draw them consistently at a professional level.
Then, one day I found some master artists who mentored and taught me very powerful but little known drawing technology. I studied and practiced this technology and my portfolio quickly improved.
Soon, my work got noticed and after years of struggling, I finally got my first big break as a video game concept artist. Eventually I transitioned to movie poster illustration where I now get to draw some of my favorite actors and characters for Hollywood films, TV shows and animation.
Now after over 20 years of experience as a professional artist, teaching hundreds of students and writing two books on drawing, I’ve decided to share the tools and technology I’ve developed.
The same knowledge and technology that helped me and hundreds of students improve their figure drawing and achieve their goals is what you will learn in this exciting new class.
