<Message from the creator>
Nice to meet you, my name is Ponzu. Thank you for your interest in this class.
There's no shortage of color worries when drawing digital illustrations. I also used to be bad at applying colors, and there was a time when I was satisfied with simple paint. However, after learning about the fun of placing colors through trial and error while hesitating about coloring, illustration improved even more, and drawing pictures became fun.
I would like to deliver to this class packed with points and know-how that make painting fun, which can only be conveyed because I'm at a loss in coloring like that. Let's have fun together!

■Graduated from Nagoya University of Arts, Faculty of Art, Department of Fine Arts in 2021/freelance at the same time as graduation
I wanted to become an illustrator when I was in college, so I started Twitter activities from scratch. I paint every day when I have time so that I'm not satisfied with my current level of painting. Also, I do not spare time drawing on each illustration.
Q. What kind of activities do you usually do? Please introduce yourself briefly!
A.I have been working as a freelance illustrator since I graduated from university. I post my work once a week on Twitter. I posted my work to an account that was barely active from 2021/3, and I was able to gain around 20,000 followers a year. I am self-taught about all digital illustrations, and I am immersed in creating ideas and works every day.
Q. How did you get into illustration?
A.It wasn't until I entered university that I started drawing digital illustrations. I was drawing illustrations all by myself, and I noticed colors and the fun of drawing boys along the way.
Q. What points did you put the most effort into planning your classes? Who would you recommend this class to?
A.What I place emphasis on in my illustrations is the use of colors and boys, so I put my focus on that and put a lot of effort into it. I would recommend it to those who are having trouble using colors or those who say boys can't draw no matter what.
Q. What kind of experience do you want the students to have through this class?
A.I want people who are not good at placing colors and who think that their pictures will be ruined if they put them down can see how they actually draw and explain, and find fun and joy in putting colors on them.
Q. Please give a message to the students!
A.Placing colors certainly takes courage, and there are many things that don't go the way you want. However, I think painting will be even more fun if you experience that adding color makes the illustration even more wonderful. I definitely want them to learn.
