About this Course

In this course you will learn to think like an artist and draw a cartoon guy named Tommy Toon by building up simple 3D shapes. This will give you some firm groundwork to begin learning how to design your own characters and draw from your head.

Drawing cartoons is a great first step in learning to draw without fully mastering anatomy and texture detail. Look for my "Ultimate Drawing" courses where I teach anatomy and other advanced techniques so you can bring your work to the next level!
