Before the Workshop
To get the most out of this workshop, we will send you a face template and instructions to create a mood board and character design before the course. Who is your character? Where do they live? What time period? Are they real or a fantasy character, human or mythical? We ask that these please be sent back to [email protected] so that they can be passed on to Jane to prepare what is needed to create your characters! You can also bring any items or props that will help you to create your head to shoulder look.
