Anatomy, form, storytelling, and character development aid in creating believable and appealing designs. In-class demonstrations and lectures on the applications of biology to design are used to establish an understanding of how to illustrate complex creatures. Discussions of industry experts fosters inspiration for students' own methodologies. Students are expected to cover the cost of supplies, estimated to be between $0 to $20.
