Draw Compelling Characters and Bring Them to Life with Animation

Digital Drawing with Animation by
Artist, Devanshi


Ever wanted to create your own original characters, build a story centered around them, learn anatomy, and develop your own stylized art? From learning how to draw a face to dynamic full body poses, I will teach you how to develop your own original character that you can draw consistently while also teaching you how to add animation to them on the iPad using Procreate!


This class is for beginners who want a deeper understanding of how to create dynamic character designs while learning how to animate them.

You will learn how to form anatomy while being consistent within your designs, and even get a grasp on how to subtly animate details that bring your character to life!


Creating a character is one thing but bringing them to life and showing how they interact with the world is another!
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to create eye catching character designs, learn how to draw your characters consistently, the basics of animation, and create well colored and shaded pieces to grow into your portfolio!

Step 1: Drawing on procreate with the iPad

Step 2: Tackling the human body

Step 3: Learning consistency

Step 4: Rendering characters

Step 5: Animating your character on procreate

Meet Your Creator



My name is Devanshi and I, like many other artists, have been drawing since I could hold a crayon! Growing up with parents who were medical professionals, there were only 3 things you could pursue as a career - doctor, lawyer, or engineer. I put art away for a long time and focused my attention on studying instead.

Years later, I picked it up again and I realized how much art never left me. I wanted to express stories and share my Indian-American culture with the world, but I knew it would take a lot of convincing to show my parents that not only was the art world beautiful, but that there were commercially viable careers in the field. I showed them endless animated movies and made them stay till the very end and let the credits play. My mom turned to me and said “I can’t wait until we see your name on that screen”. I sat there overwhelmed and happy with the knowledge that I could finally pursue what made me happy with my parent's approval and full support.

I promised to work incredibly hard and I continue to do so even after graduating art school. The art journey is tough and it’s never really over, but the satisfaction of learning how to bring your imagination to life is something I wouldn’t trade for anything. I can’t wait to share my process with you guys!

This course will teach and guide you on how to effectively utilize different tools such as "digital brushes," "palettes," and "blending options" in Procreate app.
We will help you adjust app settings to optimize your drawing experience.

*Please Note: Students will have to purchase Procreate application ($10 in Apple Store). It is not included in the course package.
