Description

In this class you’ll learn everythig you need, from the ground up, to create the type of cartoon characters you see in modern tv shows like Dexter’s Lab, Fairly Odd Parents and My Little Pony. All by using the free, open source program Inkscape, and the mouse.

The class starts with a fairly in depth view of the program Inkscape. After that it goes into drawing the features of the head step by step. Then you’ll learn the techniques and methods to build different types of body that you see in cartoon shows all thetime. And finally you’ll learn how to make your characters nice looking by applying line, color and shadows.

You will learn

All along the class we’ll be applying what is tought inmediatelly by creating this five characters, each representing a different comon body type you see all the time. You should follow along and after you’re feel more confident try your own.

An Inkscape file for each character is provided with the different stages of completion so you can better follow along. Also the file with the head features so you can easily assemble your own heads.
