Character Poses in Pencil
I have been working on some new character ideas lately. I have been practicing drawing characters in different poses. I am also getting excited about a bundle of new art courses I am taking in 2022. They will be through an organization called Make Art That Sells. I saw an ad for it on Instagram and decided to check it out. Then I found out they were having a huge sale on different bundles of classes, so I decided to find out more about them.
The teachers all seem very knowledgeable and fun. There are seven “live” classes that go from January through November but not all at the same time. A couple of them overlap with each other, though.
Then we have nine self-paced classes that we have two years to finish.
I am looking forward to all of the challenges in the new year ahead. I decided I am not feeling as inspired following classes taught by artists who are teaching from their own styles. However, I have definitely learned many great things from artists I have taken other classes from.
I think what will be different about these new classes is that they are also going to be teaching us how to build a portfolio of art and make pitches to try and sell our art to different companies. We will even be taking a class called “My Toy Pitch” where we will be learning how to invent original toys and games, but all we need to worry about is coming up with the ideas and art. So the companies who buy the ideas and art are the ones who build them, and that sounds fun!
Actually, it ALL sounds fun, and I am so excited! It will also mean I will be spending more time in town to attend the LIVE classes since our internet usage is limited at home.
So I may not be posting as much here on my blog, because I am expecting this to take lots of time!
I hope you are all doing well and are thinking about new goals for yourselves in the New Year!
Have a wonderful day! 😀
