Description

We'll begin this course and process by learning how to establish the overall proportions for a stylistic character and how head size relates to those proportions for the intended age. Following that, we'll explore applying additional features to our proportions sketch, allowing us to clearly solidify the age of our character design. We will be learning how to age our character, beginning with a toddler age and progressing up through child, teen, adult, and old ages. Software required: Photoshop CS6.
