What you’ll learn

  • You will learn how to draw HUMAN PROPORTION and how to make humans look CARTOONY.
  • You will learn how to find your own style and design your own cartoony humans.
  • You will learn how to keep the same style of cartoonying if you are designing your book and characters for your animated movie.
  • You will learn how to put emotions to your characters.
  • You will learn how to make a character sheet – how to draw your character from different sides.
  • You will learn what is an Archetype and how you go about to design one.

Wonderful course. Sections 3 and 5, in particular, which show you two techniques for developing characters from scratch. It’s less than a week since I purchased this course and my notebook already contains a bunch of characters which I would never have discovered had it not been for this course (and those 2 sections in particular). It’s like my art has been fitted with booster rockets. There’s something very wrong with Udemy’s search algorithms when a course of this quality doesn’t have more students. Thank You so much, Maria.

-Sam Pollard

The course is great fun and has really good instructions. I am surprised that my characters already look like cartoon figures.

-Birgit Gaede

I found this course very helpful. It was exactly what I was looking for to learn to create some cartoon personalities. Thank you very much!

A message to my students:

Obs. In those difficult times for all of us, it´s easy to lose hope. But we´ve made it through tough times before. Yet, when are in the tunnel it´s hard to see the end of it. Creativity will keep you grounded, happy and will give you a focus of faith and hope.

I hope you can use this time to develop your drawing skills, coming out of this crisis stronger and with more knowledge. Stay safe all, and keep drawing.

Have you ever dreaded the art class, but not because you hate drawing, but because you love it so much and you feel that you can not meet your own expectations? Not only that. You´ve had your childish dream alive to become an illustrator, but you find that drawing humans and even cartoony humans, is the hardest thing of all.

I hear you. I was just like you. But now, after 17 years of a successful career in the animation and illustration industry, I have discovered that the problem is not in your hand or whether you have a talent or not, but it´s in your mind. Yes, you read correctly. Even you can draw and become a brilliant artist if you have the right approach.

And that´s what I´m going to show you here. This exclusive offer with change the way you think and therefore the way you draw once and for all.

So what will you learn in this course:

– You will learn what are male and female proportions

– What makes a human look cartoony

– How to approach cartooning depending on the outcome you are desiring

– How to use shapes and shadows to design cartoony humans

– How to evolve your character from being a generic human to being a specific character with a personality

– What is an Archetype and why is it important to know when you work with cartoony humans

– Different types of Evil and Good characters, how to draw a Hero and a Villain

– How proportions change the way we perceive characters

– How to dress your characters – why are costumes important

– How to brainstorm with simple shapes and how to find the characters suggested by your subconscious mind

– How to bring your character to life – creating a Character Sheet

– How to put emotions to your character

This and much more you will find in this course, as well as I, will share with you some insights from the kitchen of an illustrator and an animator while I guide you, step by step to exploring your own creativity, finding your own style, and become the artist you´ve always dreamed of.

I hope to see you on the other side of this course.

– Bonus videos on how to draw a cartoony face of a Hero!

– How to translate human proportions of the face and make them cartoony.

– How to make various of different faces and find the right cartoony character for your style or archetype.

Who this course is for:

  • All beginners in drawing. If you think you can only draw stick figures, if that, I´m here to prove you wrong. There is an artist in you that you are not aware of.
  • If you already have some experience in drawing, this course will be good for you too. You will learn a lot about character design and how to break your own bounderies to take yourself to a new level of drawing.
  • If you are an advanced artist, you will get some insights from a different point of view. If you´ve been drawing the same style for ages, maybe you want to try a different approach but you seem to be stuck at the same patterns of drawing. Here, you can learn some new tecniques of how to approach your drawing and explore a different side of your creativity.

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela

  3. Jiaqing Fan

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.


  9. Chendaniel

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
