This is a sample of one of my weekly video critiques I give my students on my online character design course @ www.schoolism.com. It is a nine week one on one class with over 18 hours of video instruction. I can work with you privately weekly or you can take the self taught where you get to just watch the videos and other student critiques. The next class is starting on April 5th, seating is limited and almost full. To view dates, lesson plan and student testimonials go to www.schoolism.com,courses and lessons,character design with stephen Silver.

I loved your class and learned so much from it! I'd love it if you made a DVD with similar instruction.

I love your work but as a lesson this wasn't very coherent. You were drawing over without explanation as to why they were wrong how they were before.. Just loads of red lines and 'draw through your shapes'? What on earth is anyone to learn from that?

Faye -- I've taken the class, the example he is showing is just a short extract from what is probably a longer critique. You have to take the class to really understand everything he is talking about!

When Stephen says "draw through your shapes," it does explain why they were wrong before... because they haven't drawn the shapes all the way through. It's implied.

Part of what you learn in the course is basic construction of characters.

And personally, I find what he's doing with the redline very instructive. You need to learn to see detail and digest it.
