This is a fundamental drawing course designed specifically for children's book illustrators. In this video and PDF manual/workbook you will be shown how to use the "bean" shape to create 3 dimensional figures. The object of this class is to help you learn how to begin drawing a figure from any angle, attach limbs and head, and pose your character in any direction and from any angle. This is extremely helpful when creating comp sketches for dummy books and final sketches with your characters. Learning how to deviate from your reference to get the camera angle you want for the perspective you want is invaluable in the creation of original children's book illustration.
