In our Manga workshop you will be taught construction techniques to strengthen your artwork and how to pose your Manga characters. You will explore how to draw Manga and Chibi heads including facial expressions. After developing your skills in the use of ProMarkers, you will go on to work on authentic imported Manga Comic paper to create a final illustration using our ProMarkers and highlighting in Posca pens.
At our animation workshop you will be taught to storyboard, character design, build your characters and animate your ideas! You will use HD industry animation technology to animate your film and be taught by the animation directors of Turnip Starfish. It doesn't matter if you are new to animation or experienced, we have taught people that have gone on to animate at Disney, Aardman and many other animation studios across Britain! WANT TO SEE MORE.
