Throughout this class you’ll learn how to design and pose diverse, stylised human characters with unique body shapes. I’ll be using my iPad Pro with Procreate in my demonstrations but feel free to use your preferred drawing tools.

If you want to learn how to draw and pose people with confidence and to establish personality in your character illustrations, then this class is for you! Whether you’re a total beginner or just looking to brush up on your character illustration skills, there’s something to be learned at all levels.

We’ll cover:

  • Gesture drawing
  • Understanding realistic human proportions
  • Designing stylised characters with unique body shapes
  • Creating expressive character poses using references
  • Illustrating several dynamic poses for one of your character designs created in class

As humans we communicate so much through body language, and having the tools to communicate these expressions through art can be so effective and rewarding. This class will give you the confidence to draw expressive people of all shapes and sizes, providing you with the tools to design unique characters and pose them consistently.

I’ll be using pencil and paper as well as the iPad Pro and Procreate to demonstrate this class, but feel free to use whatever materials or software you’re most comfortable drawing with. While I’ll be explaining my process in Procreate as I go along, the primary intention of this class is to teach you how to draw people using any medium, so I won’t be covering too many technical aspects of the software. I look forward to seeing you in class!
