Description

< Back

This workshop teaches a clear, simple and accurate figure construction technique that suits today’s modern educational (and professional) environment where students have a lot more to learn in a short period of time. It is updated from more classical drawing traditions, but is easier to grasp in the beginning and can be more quickly learned.

The approach also allows students to address figure composition more easily, and assumes students will soon want to draw figures in motion, composed in groups, and as part of a narrative story.

The techniques learned in this workshop can be applied to animation, graphic novels, children’s books, game design, or in character design. The workshop is based on courses Will has developed at ArtCenter (where it is considered an essential class) and in seminars for professionals at the Society of Illustrators in LA, for DreamWorks’ TV and Feature Animation, for the Animation Guild and other organisations in Los Angeles.

Homework & Feedback

You will work on your assignments together with fellow students. While you are working, Will moves from group to group to give all of you feedback. He will also talk to each of you individually! We make sure that everyone can talk to Will in person, which is why we take no more than 20 students.
