STUDY PLAN AND EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

Through the sign, the hatching, the management of lights and shadows, passing through an introduction to anatomy, necessary for the understanding of proportions and masses, we will work on the expression and acting that each character must have to be convincing. The techniques used will be both manual and digital and, through them, the potential of black/white and color will be explored within a stylistic research that helps to tell “who is my character”, “how he is” but above all what is his personality.

The ultimate goal is to have the tools to enrich one’s portfolio and be able to present it in various working environments (animation, video games, cinema).
