How to Draw Animals

Glenn Vilppu is an internationally renowned draftsman, painter, and instructor. In this course, students will learn to draw animals. Glenn’s approach to this subject is similar to his approach to figure drawing–start with the gesture, then construct and use light to describe form and accentuate movement. Instead of copying what you see, you will learn the skills necessary to draw animals from imagination. Glenn will start with Comparative Anatomy between humans and animals, and then break down specifics of animal anatomy. Specifics such as knowing what an animal eats and its place in the food chain can be discovered by analyzing its anatomy and structure. By taking this structural point of view, you will be able to draw any animal from your imagination. This is beneficial to all artists, whether their interest is in Fine Art, Animation, Comics or other fields.
