This course is about drawing with ink and watercolor - using pen, felt pen, brush pen, and dip brushes. Working directly with ink requires building up your confidence and training to visualize your drawings before placing a stroke down on paper. We will be exploring and familiarizing ink as a medium, and working on the very basics of drawing to build a foundation — line weight, drawing basic shapes and volumes, understanding perspective— and gradually work towards being able to visualize any object in three dimensions.
- Skip the pencil sketch, and jump straight to ink.
- Start portraying the breathing scenery and people in your life, or capturing your imagination on the paper with more confidence, completing a fully finished illustration.
- Build your visual library and apply it to draw with ink from the start, using your visualization skills and imagination.
- After practicing drawing a real-life object, start rotating those in your head without even touching them. (We will go from simple objects to complicated ones)
- Able to plan out, compose, and finish a traditional illustration using ink and watercolor.

1. Tips on How to Create Your Own Style
My name is Bryce Kho and I am an Illustrator and Character Designer. A lot of my most recent work has been for video games, including titles such as Sea of Stars, The Messenger, and Aegis Defenders, but I’ve also shown a good deal of my personal work at galleries such as Nucleus, Qpop, and Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles. As someone who didn’t originally plan on being an artist professionally, I’ve accumulated a lot of my skills over time as a hobby and am excited to share this knowledge with others.
Q: How did you first start doing what you do?
After finishing my first video game, Aegis Defenders, and after more than four years of hard work, I was given something I hadn’t had since childhood— free time to simply draw for myself. I started posting more of my work on Instagram and was delighted to find myself slowly building up a strong enough following that I could continue to draw whatever I wanted and still maintain a decent income. Now, I work part time as a freelance illustrator but still have enough free time to pursue my own personal projects.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Starting from Nov. 1, 2021, feedback will not be provided on a comment/mission basis. This is to ensure that the Creator is able to manage the Class in a healthy and sustainable manner. In the aggregate, however, you will still be getting the kind of input that would take your art-making skills to the next level, as CLASS101 will also be working closely with the Creator to experiment with and offer alternative forms of feedback
