Cartooning and Character Design: The Pirate Edition! – How to draw cartoons from start to finish!

In this course I’ll be taking you through my general thought process when designing characters. Starting with their personalities, then bringing in visual elements that will make the character believable, using simple shapes as my foundation, the rough sketch, the inking stage and finally adding colour and shadows!

I’ll be conducting this course using Adobe Photoshop and a Wacom tablet – but if you’d rather follow along using traditional materials, the core teachings in this course can be applied to other mediums as well.
