Yesterday I entered the marvelous world of character design class. I am learning alongside several friends from previous classes and am being taught by Nicolas, one of the best teachers at the Academy and who is also very funny.

We started off with several notes and a general discussion on how to create a character and what traits and mannerisms certain archetypical characters all possess. Then Simone modeled for us and we were encouraged to “push” a few of the drawings, as you’ll see below. We also had the opportunity to draw several 10 second drawings, which I had never done before, set to AC/DC’s “Shoot to Thrill” – the best way to draw fast EVER.
