I have a brand new class on Skillshare! This is the fourth entry in an ongoing series about art style and character design.

This course in particular explores the different ways that lines are used when designing characters. We'll take a look at the lines of well-known characters from various media, and we'll even consider lines that exist in the real world to gain an understanding of why they work the way they do. You might use a line to scribble a smile onto a character -- or you might use it to give them a leaping motion in a still drawing. You can even use lines to give flat drawings the illusion of 3 dimensions! The class is designed for anyone of any skill level, so no prior experience is required to get into the lessons. All you really need is a simple drawing instrument to follow along with the key concepts. The class assignment will allow you to design a set of twin characters who look alike -- except for the fact that one of them has no outlines!

It's a free class until June 13th, so please check it out.
