A digital illustration course for drawing illustrations with a worldview and story. Learn how to create a worldview ~ how to draw from popular illustrators


In order to be able to draw illustrations with a worldview, this class is an online digital illustration course where you learn knowledge that allows you to enjoy illustrations more, such as how to draw easily with an analog feel, processes and tricks for drawing a single picture, while carefully drawing everything from simple motifs to single-piece pictures with complex compositions.

Please enjoy the curriculum with a story where the motifs that are the key to the story are first, then the characters are drawn, and finally they are depicted within a single story...

[This illustration course is suitable for people like this]

  • Those who feel unsatisfied with the finish of the illustration
  • Those who want to learn how to take composition, coloring know-how, etc.
  • Those who want to learn how to create illustrations with a worldview
  • Those who want to know how to come up with a picture story
  • Those who want to learn how to draw a character's face or the details of a picture
  • Those who want to learn how to draw textures

[Step 1] Learn the flow and worldview of illustration production and how the characters think, and draw motifs


The lesson starts with a lecture by illustrator Yoshioka on the production flow that she usually does when creating works and how to draw (brushes and color palettes will also be distributed, so please look forward to it!).

Next, while learning about the worldview of the illustrations to be drawn and the way of thinking about the story, we will think about the motifs that are the key to the story and draw them by actually moving our hands.

Through creating illustrations of motifs, you will experience a series of processes such as sketching, rough drawing, drawing, and adjustment.

[Step 2] Draw the main character of the story, think about the composition of a one-piece picture with a view of the world, rough → line drawing → underpainting


Once you've learned the essence of creating illustrations up to this point, it's time to move on to the heart of the story.

Think about the main character of the story and draw it out by carving out attractive characters. Learn how to think, draw, and finish human character illustrations here.

Once the character is drawn, then, while looking at the sketches and motifs you drew in step 1, think about the composition of a single illustration expressing the view of the world, proceed with rough → line drawing → underpainting to gradually shape it.

[Step 3] Draw a picture that expresses the world of the story. From drawing people, main motifs, and backgrounds to finishing

The lesson is finally at its climax. Characters are first drawn into the illustration that was primed in Step 2, then the main motifs and backgrounds that complement them are drawn sequentially.

Here, we will focus in particular on how to draw “texture” and enhance the degree of perfection of the work.

Once you've drawn until you're satisfied, make final adjustments and you're done. The works drawn in the lesson are fun only for the students!

Be sure to take the class and check out what kind of stories will be drawn.

<Message from the Creator> We aim for a course where you can gain awareness and discovery rather than “draw and finish”


Hello, my name is Yoshioka and I'm an illustrator.

In this class, I would like to share the painting awareness I have found in my activities so far, so that those who take the course can also gain new awareness.

I will generously share the techniques and ways of thinking I have found so far, and hints that make illustration creation more enjoyable, etc., and I aim for a course where you can get the awareness and discoveries that continue beyond that, not just “draw and finish.”

The work I drew in class was drawn for this time, and I was quite worried and thought about motifs and color schemes that had a lot of fun points to draw.

I would be happy if you could enjoy the motifs and characters you draw in class and see what kind of story they end up with.

Q. What kind of experience do you want the students to have through this class?

A. Look at how to proceed with my own production and how to draw, and ask, “Is there such a method!” I would be happy if it became an opportunity for you to notice that.
