Hello, I’m Pinn, an illustrator that draws warmth in the cold, depicting places that aren’t in front of your eyes, but are alive in your imagination.
When I first started painting, I was a coward. I was scared of what to do if the lines were not properly drawn, what to do if I painted in the wrong color, what to do if it turns out strange, etc. However, as I learned from the basics step by step, I changed the parts I was afraid of into parts that are easy and fun to draw, and after a lot of trial and error, drawing became fun and I’m not afraid anymore.
I think there are a lot of people who think about the same things that I did while drawing. In this class, I would like to take the time to help you overcome your fears and share the tips I learned to draw a great illustration.
Before I create, I have a lot of worries about what to draw. The longer you worry, the more vague your picture feels and the narrower your scope of thought becomes, making it more and more difficult to draw.
The first thing you need to think about when you have these concerns is, “What are some of my favorite things?” I think that painting is a great way to create a new world by adding your imagination and colors to ideas that you like, landscapes, situations, etc. Whatever you like best, I will do my best to help you express with confidence and without hesitation :)
When starting something new, it is most important to learn the basics first. Step by step, step by step, you need to build the basics and find out what you can do best
Learn about the basic human body and muscles needed for drawing character illustrations. After drawing the skeleton and simply drawing each human body part, practice drawing a natural human body by adding details step by step. I will briefly teach you about the human body with a lesson on muscles and help you master the process of drawing natural body lines.
In addition, I will help you understand and change the basic shapes of the human body easily by drawing the hands and feet, which are important parts of the human body, in the simplest way possible, and by using the deforme technique to create your own character. Once you know the basics, you can draw more textured characters and make drawing faster and more effective.
I’ll show you how to find inspiration from the world around you and design your own character. Let's create an in-depth picture together with an object that can show your character's personality and mood with your own feeling and style.
I mainly work with Photoshop when creating illustrations. It is a program that allows you to draw rich illustrations with various texture brushes with convenient functions for photo editing and color correction.
Using the color correction function, you can color your line drawings to enrich the colors of your drawing and further create your own color. I will introduce Photoshop's gradient map function, and how to express the mood and atmosphere of the painting in a more colorful way while using colors directly.
Furthermore, while drawing and coloring the face, I will help you gradually understand how to capture the shapes of the face and the expression of light and shadows on it. Also, I will tell you how to create a custom brush that fits your coloring style. In addition, I will help you draw a more comfortable and unique picture by showing you various Photoshop tools and how to use them when drawing illustrations.
Just by drawing a background that matches the character's features and situation, your illustration becomes much richer. When working with the background, you can compose a more interesting and magnificent screen by working with dots, lines, and texture elements.
A background using nature is drawn by setting the time to match the situation. Take a look around what natural materials are available and set a time zone to depict different atmospheres. Learn how to express different times of the same place, and learn how to complete an illustration using various layer correction methods that harmonize characters and backgrounds.
I will teach you to create objects and materials, themes and concepts filled with your taste and personality when drawing, and arrange characters and objects to create an illustration with the atmosphere and feel you want. Through this process, you can draw a detailed picture with a story.
The goal of the class is to complete an illustration with a textured background to bring the image you planned to life, the way you imagined it. I would like all of my students to feel the joy of completing a rich and full illustration by putting together various lines, shapes, and points and line elements.
Create your fantasy world.
