Drawing characters

When you’re a comic artist, you don’t have to draw realistic, but you can make your characters realistic with some tricks. I show and tell and give out drawing exercises on how to draw faces, bodies and movement. If there’s extra time, I also show some basics in hands, feet and animals. The workshop is suitable for children between the ages of 9 – 12.
