My pals Bob and Kriota are giving this very interesting workshop:
Understanding the way the body looks and works helps illustrators and cartoonists draw their characters so that the artwork conveys personality. This course will teach students how to create real or imaginary characters — in any style — that are consistent and believable.
Through PowerPoint presentations, in-class exercises, and at-home assignments, students will learn to see and draw the structures and tissues that give the body shape and character. Willberg will — literally! — draw on live models to trace muscle groups and body landmarks. Sikoryak will demonstrate the application of anatomical understanding to any cartooning style. Students will practice drawing from live models in class and learn to apply the lessons to their own characters.
Note: Students will need to bring drawing materials — see MoCCA website for details. This is a life- drawing class, nude models will be employed.
