Character Illustration for Beginners (Live Virtual Classroom)

Character Illustration for Beginners

Duration: 1 session | 3 hours

Fee: ₱900


We all have those characters we’ve grown to know and love, but what goes into making them feel lifelike and real? How does one begin to develop a character that stands out amongst the crowd?

This 3-hour class and workshop is an introduction to character design and development.

Students will be guided through hands-on activities and discussions to learn how to design a character from the ground up. They will also be taught some basic rules to follow (and to break!), and the elements that go into effective character design.

By the end of the workshop, students will have created several character designs through short exercises. They will be applying the theories and lessons discussed in the slides and present these designs to the whole class.

This course provides live instructor-led demonstration and discussions, student engagement and on-the-spot hands-on exercises using Zoom, Google Classroom and their preferred drawing software.
