Escape to your own fantasy world for a while by creating these three magical characters!

About this course:

If you love everything fantasy, you'll love this course. We'll be drawing an elf, a goblin and a troll. Together, we'll go through the different types of bodies our characters can have and we'll create three magical creatures.

As a general rule, there are three body types we use when designing characters. On this course, I'll show you how to draw an elf with a strong or athletic body type, a goblin with a slim body and a larger bodied elf.

What project are we going to develop?

On this course you'll learn how to design you very own fantasy characters basing yourself on three basic anatomy structures. We'll take our designs to a detailed pencil phase and then we'll arrange them in a nice presentation. 

You'll learn:

  • The three basic anatomy types for drawing characters 
  • How to draw an elf
  • How to draw a goblin
  • How to draw a troll
