Anthony Francisco is a Senior Development Artist at Marvel Studios, but he’s also known as the “Visual Father of Baby Groot.” With over 20 years of industry experience, Anthony firmly believes that anybody can draw. And he wants to teach you how, in just four simple steps.

When you learn to draw from your imagination, you can easily bring your ideas to life. And if you think you can’t learn drawing fundamentals because you don’t have expensive software, think again. All you need is your imagination.

And this is coming straight from the man who has designed heroes, villains, and creatures in some of the world’s highest-grossing films: Avengers, Black Panther, Thor, Spiderman, and Superman.

Anthony has his own superpower that allows him to be the creator that he is – and it’s not fancy equipment. It’s the ability to take everything around him and turn it into art. Now, he’s turning his knowledge into a step-by-step course on “How to Draw From Your Imagination.”

We Are Excited To Announce The Launch Of The Anthony Francisco Academy

Whether you’re a hobbyist or want to become a visual artist, you will learn everything you need to know about creature design, through Anthony’s principles of design.

Go from being a complete beginner to making complex illustrations… in just 30 days. Learn to combine design principles and cultural inspiration so that you can construct your own masterpieces. And, at the end of the day, apply these techniques to any kind of design.

When you’re a creator, inspiration can come from anywhere. Most people assume that art is only about visuals, but there’s so much more to it. As an artist of any kind, you have to find your own unique style and preferred medium.

Growing up in the Philippines, Anthony developed a deep passion for reading comic books, specifically Marvel Universe comics. Today, he pulls a lot of his inspiration from those childhood memories as well as stories from Filipino folklore.
