TAKE A CLOSER LOOK.

Section 2

You'll dive right into your first character drawings. It's never fun to listen to a bunch of lectures on theory for the first few hours of a course. It's much more fun to actually do. So you'll already be drawing characters by lecture 3.  You'll get to draw a male and female character in this section. You can preview this section for free if you want to get a taste of the course.

Section 3

This section is called Learning The Fundamentals of Character Design because you will be learning everything you need to know in order to build a strong foundation. You'll learn everything from the drawing hierarchy to how line, shapes, and form are used in stages to create character designs.

Section 4

Welcome to drawing boot camp. This sections name comes form the fact that you will go through exercises that will strengthen you drawing ability. This includes pencil control, muscle memory, speed control, and pressure control. All of which are extremely important to character design. We call this section drawing boot camp because you'll change after going through it.

Section 5

Next your going to receive some extremely useful training. This whole section is on drawing the human body. You'll need the ability to draw the human form if your going to create good character designs. Through out this training you will learn how to draw every individual part of the human body from different angles and in different poses. This section breaks down the human body into simple to understand shapes and forms that you can replicate over and over again. And don't worry, you'll learn how to draw the male and the female forms.

Section 6

This section is all about how to pose that body that you're now an expert at drawing. In order to create exceptional character designs you need to know how to draw poses that are dynamic and have attitude. You'll learn all the different ways to make a pose dynamic and how to express a characters attitude, emotion, and just give them that appealing look. Trust me. By the end of this section you'll get it like a professional.

Section 7

The most important part of character design is always telling a story. Here you'll learn how to tell a story through your characters expression. First you need to know how to draw certain expression. Once you've mastered your character expressions you can start mixing and matching eye and mouth expressions to get a wide variety of emotions. Creating good expressions is the secret of the pros.

Section 8

You probably don't want your characters to be naked and bald so in this section you'll learn all about hair & costume design. Hairstyles and costumes are really what make characters iconic and memorable. So you'll learn all about how to give your character their "Thing" that will distinguish them form other characters.

Section 9

This section of the course will give you some very practical knowledge and skills in drawing characters in different genres. Character design is broken up into different genres. You'll be taught in-depth how to draw anime, Disney animation, comic, and Pixar cartoon styled characters over the course of 5 lectures. You won't want to miss this section!

Section 10

At this point you have acquired all the necessary skills and knowledge to design your own characters from start to finish. So now its time to put it all together. You'll get to watch a two part video of me designing a dragon slayer character from start to finish. This section demonstrates a character being imagined and developed right before your eyes. Theres no better way to learn than to watch others.

WHY THIS IS THE BEST COURSE TO BUY.

I wanted to build a course that could take a student with little or no drawing skills and shape them up into a decent character designer in a short period of time. My company Jaysen Batchelor Education is committed to developing courses that exceed expectations and provide value above and beyond what is payed for. If you're not happy with the course you can always get a 100% money back guarantee within the first 30 days of purchasing the course. The refund process is hassle free and you won't be asked why. But I have a feeling you won't want to refund this course.
