Glen Vilppu's Anatomy Class

Life drawing has always been tough (am I preaching to the choir?), but the first session of Glen Vilppu's 12-week anatomy course at the Animation Guild has given me hope...hahaha.
Anyways, he gave us some basic proportions and easy measurements that REALLY help you construct the model on your page, not just copy everything you see. I'm really glad I get to take a class with the master, and I'm looking forward to the next 11 weeks!

In these next ones you can see some of the measurements I'm using, as well as more of the underlying bone structure of the model.


  1. Hi Emily,
    Was the class in person, or his online version? Would be curious to know what you thought about.

    1. Hi!

      This class was in person. Glen is a wonderful teacher, and his classes are really good value if you take them through the Animation Guild in Burbank. So cheap compared to other places. Check it out at

      As with lots of teachers, you'll have to ask him questions if you want to learn! He is so good at what he does, asking him to explain what might seem simple will often lead to mind-blowing new knowledge!!!! KABOOM!
