I will help you with your animal drawings at any stage, showing you methods to first analyze the animal you want to draw, then to construct your drawing starting from basic shapes, then working toward more details. I will also show you how to capture the dynamic gesture, create believable three-dimensionality, and to think of animal anatomy in a simplified way.

Mike Wiesmeier

I first studied figure drawing and animation at the Brandes Art Institute in Los Angeles, California when I was fifteen years old. My first teacher, Glenn Vilppu, is a world-renowned modern figure drawing master, heavily influenced by the Florentine Renaissance drawing tradition. My training with Glenn continued years later when I worked at Walt Disney Feature Animation in Los Angeles, where I participated in the studio's outstanding artist development program. Artist and teacher Steve Huston was instrumental in also developing my figure drawing skills, and inspired me to pursue classical painting studies years later, from 2007 to 2009, in Florence, Italy, at The Florence Academy of Art. My studies in Florence included realist drawing of the human figure, and realist landscape painting. My teaching method has been influenced primarily by Glenn Vilppu and Steve Huston, and also by many other teachers I have had over the years. I approach teaching every subject by helping my students to analyze their subject and then to record their observations in a logical step-wise sequence that emphasizes going from the simple to the complex. This method has worked very well in more than twenty-five years of teaching. My personal style emphasizes giving feedback in a positive and encouraging manner.
