Do you like to read fantasy stories? Watch fantasy movies and/or shows? Do you play or want to play Dungeons & Dragons? If the answer is yes to any of these questions then this is the workshop for you. Emerse yourself in worlds where a barbarian rises to become hero after defeating an army of goblins. Where a halfling is charge with a quest to destroy a magical item, or maybe you just want to be able to cross that terrifying troll bridge.
It doesn't matter what fantasy story you want to tell, the foundational elements are all basically the same and to visually bring your story to life you will have to populate your world with characters. In this workshop I will demonstrate how to create characters that fit in a fantasy world. We will discuss character archetypes and how to draw a character based on their occupation and personality.
