Illustrate People in Procreate – Basics of Stylized Character Design Free Tutorial Download
About This Class
Learn to draw people and characters using simple shapes.
Drawing characters is always fun! It can add a lot of personality and stories to your illustrations. Character design is used in many art forms like every feature film, tv animation, video games, comic books, children’s books as well as corporate visuals, and illustrations.
If you want to feel more comfortable drawing characters for your own or client projects, this class is for you.
In this class, I will take you through the journey of designing characters using simple shapes, so you get more confident and have a solid starting point when drawing characters for your illustrations.
We will be placing the characters in an interesting little story setting of a house which we could call “Humans of my neighborhood”, so it’s even more fun to practice drawing characters.
You will gain a solid skill for developing your character design style further. You will learn to draw:
- Heads, hair, and different hairstyles
- Male and female torso
- Arms and hands with a few hand gestures
- The whole body
I will also show you techniques of how you can take inspiration from references and you will learn how to simplify the real-life in your character design.
At the end of the class, you will have an illustration you could print out for your home, give to a family member, or take your design further and even use it in your portfolio if you create your own custom house illustration.
I will be using Procreate, but feel free to use any other drawing software or medium you prefer.
In addition, you will also get a bunch of freebies to practice:
- House template illustration
- Window and balcony frame templates
- Color palette for the characters and the night scene
- Mood boards with photo references for your characters
Let’s get started with expanding your horizons and drawing awesome characters!
See you in the class
