Learn to sketch your character and sculpt it in clay with professional designers, as they take you step by step through this first, fun and easy sculpture project.

Even if you can't imagine becoming great at character sculpting, this workshop will help you advance because you will learn the entire process step by step.


The creation of animated characters begins after the completion of a story. Transforming a 2D sketched character into a 3D figurine using modeling clay allows for the creators to get a 360° view of their character.

During the workshop, you will be working on modeling your clay figurine, focusing on forms, features, and adding personality to your character. Then, you will be combining hands-on and digital techniques by photographing your character using professional equipment.
