About this course

Christmas is almost here but as we know, not everyone likes it. Especially the anti-Christmas monsters! In order to channel their negative vibes we're going to create a rock band in which we can integrate our anti-Christmas characters and give them a customized and very rock music themed touch. If you like music and especially creating characters, this course is for you!

In this course you'll learn to design your own rock band based in the fundamental elements of a music group, character references and body stereotypes of cartoon style.

In this course you will learn:
