What's more, this class will also cover some tips on how to draw characters efficiently and effectively. Those of you who have always been afraid to start drawing because it seemed too difficult, this is where you should start.
DRAWING FACIAL EXPRESSIONS
You can express characters with different personalities by giving variations to the shapes of their faces, eyes, noses, and lips. A slight change in the shape of a character's eyes results in a dramatic difference in the impression he/she gives. Let's learn about how to control the facial features of the characters you draw.
DRAWING A LIVELY FACE!
What many people don't realize about drawing a character is that facial expressions are crucial in expressing the personality of that character. Real-life people experience joy and sorrow. Shouldn't your characters do that too? You don't have to always draw smiling faces. The character you draw should also cry, laugh, and get angry.
Many people say that they can't get over that stage when you are first learning to draw and trying not to lose interest. In order to overcome that stage, you have to try out a lot of different styles. At the end of that trial and error, you will finally be able to draw what you really want to draw.
ABOUT THE WRINKLES IN CLOTHING
Drawing a beautiful character doesn't end at drawing an interesting face. You should also draw his/her clothes and body. The crease of the character's clothes depends on the direction of the joint being bent. If you learn to master some tips to naturally express clothes, you will see your character also looking much more natural.
Let's start learning step by step!
Drawing : Rough sketch → Line clean ups → Coloring → Adding Light and shades.

Hello! I am Yu-nana, an illustrator and your instructor! When I was young, I loved Sailor Moon so much that I became interested in painting when my parents bought a coloring book from the stationery store. I read and followed comic books and applied the pictures to combine backgrounds and add colors. Everyone has different reasons why they like painting, but I think I want to draw my own charismatic paintings. I wanted to share those times with you so I prepared this course!
