Character Development/Anime - Wednesdays 4:30-6:00pm

Character Development/Anime
Instructors: Rob Hogan and Richard Laurent 

This workshop is for all would-be character designers! Richard will demonstrate the keys to drawing a successful character in any style–

for animation, comics, or illustration. These keys include posing, expressions, and staging using perspective to bring your characters to life.
These rules are applied to all character styles by professional artists who work for studios like Pixar, Dreamworks, Studio Ghibli and Disney. Richard has taught character design at Columbia College-Chicago and had his portfolio accepted by Disney Feature Animation. 

Bring samples of your drawing to the first session.

Tools for the class:

Sketchbook 9 x 12, tracing paper pad, pencils, felt tip pens/markers, color pencils (optional)
Tip:  The best felt tip pen for inking I've found:  The Japanese Tombow brushpen
