Animal Drawing emphasizes developing an understanding of the anatomy of wildlife and domestic animals. Students will learn to construct quadruped skeletons as well as rendering fur and reptilian skin. Furthermore, there is an exploration of form and perspective with an analysis of gestures and expressions. Learning to draw animals is a vital step in creating populated landscapes as well as building a foundation that strengthens believability when developing creature designs.

Awesome instructor! She’s really nice and even takes the extra time to post additional resources. Also quite patient and understanding.
Shannon is a wonderful person and teacher. Her love for her craft does nothing but inspire to be better and I will ALWAYS be thankful to her for that!
Shannon goes above and beyond. She visibly puts more time, effort and energy into each student’s work and critique than anyone else. Her critique and QAs are always lengthy (in a good way), she explains things in simple terms, and she is constantly sharing resources, whether on the forums or in the QAs or your critiques. Her caring and commitment to her students shows through in all she does.
