Drawing Natural-Looking Poses
Novoduce's illustrations have a natural grace and beauty. Learn her secret to drawing natural poses that even beginners can grasp.

Have Fun With Your Drawings
Drawing isn’t complete without being able to enjoy yourself! Give your artwork a story, setting, emotions, and anything else that will help you bring your illustrations to life.
The biological structure of the human body will help you when drawing your character's figures. Learn about the critical points to consider when drawing natural-looking characters.
Adding Color and Light
Mix colors together to create a color with your desired value and hue. Learn about color schemes to match the time of day and also how to use colored pencils.
Adding Light and Shadows
Shadows are a realistic part of character drawings that amateur artists often forget to consider. Learn to fill in colors one by one based on the kind of light you want to capture.
Graceful and Realistic Character Illustrations That Even Beginners Can Learn
Have you ever struggled when drawing figures? Without knowing the proper methods, drawing characters can be intimidating and extremely difficult.
What Goes Into Character Illustrations?
Novoduce starts everything from the anatomy of humans. All the techniques you will learn are supported by biology. This class will teach you how to use the knowledge you will learn about muscles and connective tissue to draw characters with realistic proportions.
Learn to draw using natural facial proportions and angles and then move on to drawing the body. Once you have mastered drawing figures, Novoduce will show you how to add smaller details like the shadows.
Using Colored Pencils
No character illustration is complete without colors and a proper background. Colored pencils have a similar charm to watercolors; you start with bright colors and one by one, add on darker layers. If you practice mixing colors with colored pencils, you will be able to color easily when you use watercolors. I don't use a peach color just because it's flesh and sky blue just because it's the sky. Rather, I will teach you how to make the colors without using peach and sky blue. Fill in the colors one by one, focusing on the color of the light you are trying to capture.
What is Croquis?
Have you ever walked down a busy city street and seen someone sitting on a bench, sketching the people walking about? Soon you’ll be able to do the same thing! Croquis is creating quick drawings of live models. From the basics of sketching to the key points, you need to remember, Novoduce gives you everything you need to start croquis on your own.
Sit in a cafe, get out your notepad, listen to some good music, and start drawing. Once you get used to drawing, you’ll be able to draw real people and make your own live croquis.
ALL the Details
Impress your friend with details that they would have never thought to include. Even the wrinkles that form on your clothes! If you start learning with me, and practice well, before you know it, you will have developed your own unique style as well!
Hello, I'm Novoduce, an illustrator who draws out everyday landscapes. I'm trying to unravel the memories I've seen in my dreams and places I want to enjoy. I like to observe people's facial expressions and actions and portray them as if I were recording them. If I match my thoughts with the poses of the characters, I'll develop them into illustrations.
However, if there is an action or image that you want to express but the angle changes, it is very difficult to change the figure. As I teach from my experiences, I can help you learn how to draw characters.
I usually listen to music or watch a movie and sketch out the ideas I have written down while I sit in a nearby cafe. I find subjects, and finish my work at home. I walk outside or do some basic work at my favorite cafe to free my ideas. And at home, I work on post-production.
When I was working as a lecturer at an academy, I met many people who were passionate about painting. I was happy to see those students improve, and it inspired me to draw more.
I have been teaching teaching private classes for 3 years and have met around 400 students. Luckily, a lot of the students liked my work and some even retook my class a couple times. I am always grateful and am working hard to make better classes.
My dream is to do work on a larger scale. I want to plan an exhibition. I want to travel the world on the power of my art.
