About Will Weston
I was originally an advertising illustrator with agents in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. I eventually entered the entertainment field, where I was trained in Walt Disney Studio’s excellent Feature Animation training program. In the following years, I worked as a layout artist, background painter, and a visual development artist for Disney Feature and TV Animation, Nickelodeon Animation, Warner Bros., and Sony Feature Animation.
I have an MFA from the Claremont Graduate University in California. I am retired from ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, where I taught in the Entertainment Arts and Entertainment Design programs. I won ArtCenter’s Great Teacher Award in 2012, an award granted by student vote.
I teach workshops internationally on figure drawing, costumed figure drawing, drawing on location (plants, architecture, furniture, vehicles, etc.), landscape drawing & film composition. Also, Photoshop painting, composition for animation & film, and style development for animation.
I teach professional workshops for Dreamworks Animation, Blizzard Entertainment and other professional organizations as well as offering online courses through Drawing America.

Thanks a lot, I’m really getting a lot out of these videos. I keep watching them all over and over and they are helping me more than almost anything else has, I really appreciate it
I definitely learned a lot already. Holding the pencil the way Will Weston showed in the videos has helped me do construction and not push too hard as well.
Thank you very much for the demo. Greatly appreciate the clarity of explanation on the structure of the hip relating to the leg. Awesome teaching!
Drawing based on Will`s system for structuring the figure. It is sooooo helpful!!!
Brilliant. The images on Insta were a bit of a mystery so this has cleared them right up. So many ace tips!
