This class is designed for illustrators who create sequential art for comics, children's books, or graphic novels. Achieving character consistency in your work is paramount to success in creating projects where characters repeat from page to page in different positions and perspectives. Dan gives you the basics to know what materials and tools you will need as well as simple techniques - to be able to sculpt your own characters to draw from. How much easier would it be for you to work from a 3d model of the character you designed? Follow along with Dan and learn how he quickly mocks up a character and then you will be better equipped to do the same with your creation.

I've always struggled to draw my characters consistently in different scenarios and I've tried to do my own sculptures to help out, but I did that by trial and error. This video explains to you the basics on how to do the armour, tools, clays etc. I found it super useful. Can't wait for another video on how to refine the sculptures more.
