13 October 2018 • Character Design and Layout Workshop

I was fortunate to do this workshop directly following the introduction one. This was a great follow-up, allowing us to work on the one character & build up its personality, as well as working on different physical angles. I found this helped the working process so much, and gave me the confidence to work on my own characters in the future. Tul is a highly skilled and experienced artist and teacher, and made the day enjoyable for everyone. The space was very conducive to learning and inspiration, with many books and hanging illustrations. Thanks for a great day, and ideas to go on with.
