I’m is hosting an 8-week Online Drawing Workshop – Intensive Basic Course, where I’ll share basic drawing skill set that I’ve earned from past 12 years of experience in the animation industry, working on shows like Voltron Legendary Defender, Avatar: The Legend of Korra, TMNT, Ben 10 Series and many more.
From basic human anatomy, figure, acting, gesture, expression, design, developing own style and many more in depth studies of the character drawing will be discussed. Students will use critical thinking on drawing and design to help develop basic drawing skill sets.
This workshop is for those of you who students or artists that are pursuing a career in the animation and game industry as a storyboard artist, character designer, visual development artist, character animator, comic artist and more.
It is also for those who want to strengthen basic drawing techniques!
Those who want to work in action-adventure shows, feature films, and game will also benefit as well. This workshop is designed especially for those who live far away from the Hollywood animation and game industry, and have struggled to find an opportunity to learn.
Each week, students will have an access to watch my video lecture for studying and have an exercise to practice basic drawing techniques based on the topic shared from the workshop. There’ll be total 8 sessions (3 hours per session) and 8 exercises. Review and critiques in video format will follow.
