Figure Drawing for Cartoonists

Tom Motley Cartoonist

When you're a graphic illustrator, understanding human anatomy is only part of the skill set you need to successfully compose vivid and expressive figures. This course will survey key concerns such as solidity, movement, body language and stagecraft, in an effort to coordinate what you can learn about the figure with what you can see and imagine. Sessions will alternate between life drawing from the model and figure construction from memory and imagination. This is a good course for people who draw well and would like to draw better.
NOTE: Please bring drawing paper and pencils, and your best cartoon character or figure drawing to the first session.
