What can you learn on our courses?

Let's learn some new skills to help us take our illustration up to the next level! We'll be using what we've learnt in Lesson Pack 1 & 2, and building on this knowledge with lots more advanced professional techniques.

This lesson pack includes some of our most requested lessons, like how to draw characters in modern styles that are most popular in Japan today, detailed lessons on digital colouring, and a mini series of lessons on how to compose Japanese style manga comic strips!

Course Description

This standalone course includes a full series of advanced illustration lectures taken from our super popular subscription course “How To Draw Anime and Manga”. The lesson pack includes lectures on modern character illustration, digital colouring, manga creation, and much more! As always, our lessons focus on little-known techniques our lecturers have learnt from years of experience in the Japanese anime and manga industry.

This is the 3rd in our standalone lesson pack series, and we recommend that you first complete both Pack 1 and Pack 2 before beginning this lesson pack.

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!

Learn how to draw anime characters at your own pace!

This course grants lifetime access to a chunk of lessons from our super popular subscription course, so you can take your time, and get better at drawing anime and manga at your own pace!

There is no "sign up period" or "school term" that all students must stick to. Join whenever you want, and study whenever you have the time! Perfect for students who want complete freedom in their study schedule.

Course Contents

1. In the Digital Colouring lessons, we'll be using Clip Studio Paint Pro to study how to colour digitally on a computer or tablet! We've adapted the lessons to fit all different digital illustration software, so even if you don't have Clip Studio, you'll be able to follow along and learn super helpful tips for your software of choice!

2. We'll be looking at how to draw faces and expressions using the most popular art styles and techniques in the industry today. As well as learning how to draw all kinds of anime classics - including school uniforms, maid outfits, and "chibi" characters!

3. Learning how to create beautiful backgrounds that help your characters stand out.

4. In our highly requested Manga Illustration mini course, we'll be looking at the whole process that Japanese professionals go through when creating manga comics. From planning the story, all the way through to illustrating and printing your work.

5. How to take on and complete commissions. A big part of many pro illustrators' careers is taking on and carrying out job requests. We'll be going through the process step by step, so you're ready to take on commissions of your own!

6. Taking your work to the next level! We look back at some of the areas we studied in past lessons, and use some simple yet effective techniques to give our illustrations an extra professional touch. From drawing to colouring and composition, these lessons will introduce you to all kinds of techniques used by professional illustrators in Japan.
