This course is for you

Have you ever wanted to be able to draw a horse? Have you ever wanted to draw a cartoony horse? Or a goat? Or a turkey? Well, then this is the course for you. Each animal has a specific characteristics, anatomy and personality. To make an animal look cartoony we need to consider the above and apply human features and traits to it. Even if it seems complex it is very easy and even YOU can do it. In this course I am guiding you step by step in how you can use a simple technique to create even some of the most complex animals such as a horse or a cow and turn them into believable and great cartoony characters. You don´t need any previous experience in drawing. There is a hidden potential in you that I´m going to unlock and show you that you can be a great character designer. I´m not only going to show you what your hand can do on the white piece of paper but also what your mind can create in form of interesting and fun farm animals. You will also learn how to put emotions to your character, how to design characters of different gender and age, how to design simpler and a more complex design of the same animal...and much, much more.

Maria AvramovaAward-winning Director, Designer and Animator
I am a character design, film director, animator and illustrator. I have worked in the animation industry for over 15 years, bringing characters to life. I have worked with clients such as McDonalds and Ericsson to create a top notch 3D animated characters for the their commercials. I´ve had the privilage to direct actors such as Sir Roger Moore and Peter Stormare among all, as voice actors for animated movies. I´ve worked with renown illustrators and screenwriters such as Iain McCaig, the legendary designer from Star Wars, to breath life to stories and characters. The TV-show I´ve recently wrote and directed, called Space Yoghurt, is having a worldwide success and has been featured twice in the Animation Magazine. I started my life as an artist at the age of 13 when I attended art school. The first year we had to draw 50 drawings a day, after school. It seemed a lot, but now I know it was what it took to be able to draw well. I know what it takes to became an artist, but also I know the struggle of the process. I´m here to share with you the knowledge that I´ve been gathering through my experience on how to draw. I´m also here to inspire you and let you know that each one of the artists you admire today has one been a beginner. Having said that, I´m going to share with you some shortcuts to how you can start drawing and get a result immidiately, because, sure you need to put in the work, but inspiration is what will keep you going. You will see that you too have it in you, but you are not aware of it yet. Welcome to my world.
