In this course, our pro manga-ka will be correcting artwork created and sent in to us by students! (Art submission is optional)
Students enrolled in this course can watch the whole correction process, as our manga-ka explain what they are correcting in the piece, why this correction is necessary, and the techniques they are using to carry out the correction. The teachers will correct the work whilst staying faithful to the student's style, so this is a great opportunity to study all different original styles of manga art!
Our first subscription course "Learn how to illustrate in manga style from Japanese professionals" has a structured, step-by-step "textbook" style curriculum, taking students through each technique and study point in order. This "Practical Advice..." course format is different, as it allows students to actually see how those techniques can be put into action, as pro manga artists use them to illustrate and correct.
This course provides a great insight into how professionals really work, and the kind of areas they would choose to fix or change. Observe and learn these skills, and you will see a dramatic improvement in your own work too!
Think of our first course "Learn how to illustrate..." as a textbook, teaching you all the skills you need, and this course as a "practical" course - giving you the opportunity to watch those skills in action, carried out by a pro!
Each lesson will have a different study focus, allowing you to pick up new skills each time.
Examples of some of the themes we will cover are: shading hair, drawing accurate clothes, colour schemes, balanced anatomy, natural composition, and facial expressions.
Every lesson will have a new useful focus area that will help you improve on a specific area of your work!
Students enrolled in this course will also be able to receive unlimited personal feedback and advice from our pros in the comments section of each lecture.
This course is recommended if any of the following points apply to you...
・I'm not a beginner, but I'm not totally confident in my art yet
・I'm interested to see how a good artwork can become even better at the hands of a pro!
・I can draw well, but sometimes my finished work isn't quite right, and I'm not sure what needs to be fixed
・I want to see pro artists in action, actually drawing, so I can learn how to draw clean linework, colour professionally and other advanced techniques
What areas will we be learning how to correct in this free lecture?
In today's lesson, we'll be learning how to make a character's appearance match with their personality, and looking at how their clothes and hair style can affect this.
