6 Class Exercises
Simple & Stylized Anatomy
Movement Composition with Objects
Hello, I'm 2D Animator and Storyboard Artist,
Sol Ferrari a.k.a SolKorra.
I am currently working on the next
Tomb Raider anime for Powerhouse Animation.
I have also done layout work for Titmouse Vox Machina
and worked as an animation director
in animation studios around South America.
I'm from a small city in Uruguay,
and after extensive effort and dedication,
I improved my art to the point where it is today.
However, even now, I still feel that's not enough,
and always try my best to improve.
I love to draw anatomy and dynamic poses,
and playing with these elements is a lot of fun.
I want to share what I have learned
so that anybody interested in drawing
can achieve their goals.

Gesture Drawing for Sketching
Understanding how to draw gestures is vital for capturing dynamism in drawings and animation. This class will give you the tools necessary to master fast sketching and create character poses that are solid and interesting.
Movement Is King
Action lines are a fundamental part of dynamic drawing. There are many forces involved in the movement, and quickly recognizing these forces allow us to depict action that looks natural and smooth. With practice, you can see and use action lines without thinking, to the point where it becomes second nature.
Movement & Anatomy
Anatomy and structure are generally taught separately from gesture drawing, but this can't be done in the real world. There's no way to create something interesting without movement and rhythm. On the other hand, it is possible to create something understandable with a bit of structure and order. Anatomy and gesture drawing, structure and motion, are just two sides of one reality. The final goal of this course is to merge these two aspects into one and use them harmoniously in your drawings.
Simplification & Clean LinesWe will learn different tools to successfully portray movement: simplifications and clean lines. These tools will help you to best present and improve your gesture drawing.
Simplified & Stylized AnatomyInstead of going over how to execute realistic anatomy, I want to help you create a range of natural-looking character poses using stylized and simplified anatomy. However, there's more to it than just getting the anatomy right. You'll learn how to direct the line of sight of your characters, even in the most exaggerated poses.
CompositionTo bring characters to life, sometimes we need to give them a little something extra—like objects! It's also important to consider how those objects look on characters in action. I'll show you how to apply what we've learned about character movement to movement in a scene.

Expert Storyboard Artist,
Is there a specific reason why you chose this specific topic/themes?
I often see art students and even some art professionals talk about the anatomy or structure of a drawing while others talk about action lines. But rarely are both aspects discussed at the same time, which is the most efficient way of improving. This way of looking at things is the best way to achieve great drawings.
What makes your class different
from other classes?
I have a different approach to art; not so much focused on structure or anatomy but more on energy, flow, and movement. It really helps me, so I think it will also help you find your own path as an artist. Sometimes, you have to sacrifice anatomical accuracy in exchange for motion, since motion is one of the most essential things in a drawing.
What would be the most important takeaway from your class?
I think it would be to take a new approach to art. Be more resilient to drawing frustration and make the best use of your time while sketching or practicing. And finally, to create beautiful drawings full of life and character.
