Learn to draw perfect portraits with this primer from Fernanda Soares de Carvalho, the artist behind @creativenanda.

Fernanda is a self-taught artist with a passion for creating semi-realistic portraits that are almost cartoonlike in nature and inspired by manga, anime, and fantasy art. In Dynamic Character Design, she shows you how to work with digital or traditional drawing tools to create faces, facial features, poses, facial expressions, characters, and more in her signature animated style. This easy-to-follow book includes:
 
  • A review of drawing tools, whether you work with digital apps like Procreate or prefer to use pencil, pen, marker, or colored pencil
  • Portrait-drawing tutorials, including how to simplify facial features, hair, anatomy, and poses
  • Sketching tips and techniques, including how to use reference photos, ideas for what to sketch, and more
  • Instructions and tips for the digital drawing process, including creating layers, base shapes, background colors, and shadows
  • Tips on finding your drawing style and how to design your own cute characters
