Anime Art Academy is the one and only online course led by professional Japanese illustrators, with full English language support


Our course is brand new, so all of the styles you will learn are up-to-date and in touch with the latest anime trends

Once you have completed the advanced levels of our course and gained all the skills you need, Anime Art Academy is here for you! We will evaluate your work and find our most excellent students. If we think your work is the right level to make it as a professional illustrator in Japan, we will support you on your path to becoming a popular artist in Japan!

Did you know that a top-level professional illustrator in Japan can earn over $5000 for just one page of work?

To reach that top professional level, usually you would have to go to school or collage, paying expensive tuition fees and attending lessons on a strict schedule. But with Anime Art Academy, you can enjoy lessons at your own pace, in English, in the comfort of your own home - all for a reasonable monthly fee of $35.

The first lesson is totally free, so why not go and take a look


User Reviews

"Wow I am very surprised that the course actually is teaching important stuff, usually anime and manga tutorials or courses or even books just suck at teaching for beginners especially when it's in English, but this course actually has value and is teaching things beginners should know. This first lesson did a very good job at teaching the students to understand 3D and learn proportions, anatomy and technique (ghosting, drawing with shoulder, drawing arcs/curves) that will be very useful, while providing a very fun method to practice it. The method is not the most efficient but people will do it more just because it would be fun and you will improve multiple skills at the same time. So far I'm really enjoying this and it is obvious the instructor knows what he is talking about."

"I was a total beginner so I wasn't sure if I could follow the content, but everything was explained so well, I never felt left behind. After a year at the Academy, I'm proud to call myself an anime artist!"

-Ellie Townsend

"It's such a help having teachers on hand to give detailed advice in the comments section. Thanks to the feedback I've made mad progress! Thanks so much!"
