What can you learn on our manga drawing courses?

From face and body to posing and clothing - let our professional Japanese artists take you through all the techniques you’ll need to get started as an anime artist!

Course Description

This standalone course includes a full series of character illustration lectures taken from our super popular subscription course “How To Draw Anime and Manga”. 

From beginners who have never drawn a full character illustration before, to artists who are already confident in their drawing ability, the content in this course is suitable for all levels.

For the best results and progress, we suggest subscribing to our monthly course and studying at our recommended pace, but we have seen that some students like to work at their own pace, without having to wait for the next lessons to be released every month. We understand that each of our students has different needs, so we've created these Lesson Packs to allow for more freedom in your study routine!

All students who have purchased this course will also have access to the comments section in each lecture page, where they are free to post any questions they have about the lesson, or even post pictures of their own work. There our professional Japanese lecturers will answer your questions, and give you personal advice and feedback!
