What kinds of comics are there, and how do you start drawing one? In this course, you will master the basics of creating your own comic character, led by professional artist Irina Richards.
In Session 1, you will learn more about characters in comics, graphic novels and manga. You will start developing your characters, learn how to draw different head angles and add features. In Session 2, you will practice drawing facial expressions and poses to add dynamism to your characters. In Session 3, you will add details and colour to your characters, and design an environment for your characters to have adventures in!
