Module 3 –  Figures

I hope you are happy with the heads you have drawn. It is time to put your heads on a figure, so you can tell more stories!
We start with very simple figures that are not difficult to draw. But anyway it is a bit different from the heads we have done, and therefore it might feel like you are not making progress. 

It might feel like you are starting from scratch again. 

This is normal. I see it all the in my studio classes. People are happy with the heads they do, and feel anxious if the figures they draw don't look as good as the heads. But keep at it! 

You'll get through to the other side, if you just follow the lessons and practice a bit. 

I recommend that you play with the "thick yellow line" when you reach module 3, "let it come alive". It helps a lot!

Module 5 - Real world illustration!

In this module I'm going to show you how I go about making my illustrations - technically and  conceptually.
