You will work on projects which include character design, comic book cover design, perspective drawing, 3D character, and comic book layout. We begin with simple shape concepts and work our way up to color language to approach posing, expressions, basics of anatomy, movement, and storytelling through character design. By the end of the class, we'll have several fully developed characters, comic book sheets, and more, and you'll learn about what it takes to get your audience hooked on your unique story! New and continuing students welcome! Hybrid option available upon request. Please reach out to Kirsten Sanford, Education Manager for more information kirsten@westwindsorarts.org.
