Character design course

I wanted to share with you one of my students, Klaus-Martin Gareis's final assignments from my last semester online character design course on He amongst others had made huge improvements in just nine weeks. The drawing on the left was the first assignment based on a character description I gave with no teaching yet. The pic on the right is the final assignment to draw this character again with their new found knowledge. My June 21st semester is all filled up and my next on which starts on September 6th has already started to fill up, so reserve your seat today.
