Does this sound like you?
☑️ I often struggle with putting down my first lines, or feel overwhelmed looking at an empty canvas
☑️ I find it hard to transfer the awesome artistic ideas in my head into actual pictures on the page
☑️ I find myself frustrated by stationary tutorial images... Hey! How do you expect me to draw that if I didn't see how you drew the lines?!
☑️ I'm a digital artist, but I only really use the brush tool, and draw everything on one layer. I want to understand how to use the tools more efficiently!
If you've ever experienced any of the above issues, you are going to LOVE this premium course! Just relax and enjoy the course, because we've got you covered on all fronts.
Empty canvas phobia?
Our worksheet-style resources are here to guide you, providing a solid foundation for your practice and serving as a perfect companion to the video lessons.
We provide worksheets in PDF and PNG format, so you can print them out or import them to your drawing software and trace right over our pre-drawn guidelines and even trace the finished lesson images!
If I can visualise it, why can't I draw it?!
We understand that sometimes an image on screen or in your head doesn't easily translate to lines on your own paper, and sometimes however hard you try, your drawing doesn't come out how you planned. Frustrating, right?
90% of the time work "just doesn't look right" it's because the balance is off. Let's fix that, and work towards creating super satisfying results!
Following our perfectly crafted guidelines, and tracing directly over our provided resources will help you get an idea of how to balance correctly and make natural looking characters. In time you will naturally get a sense of what makes a good balanced illustration.
Understanding how to create good drafts and guidelines will take away the guesswork and stress, and put the fun back in to drawing!
Is that a tablet or a sketchbook?
One of the joys of digital art is being able to use all the cool functions available to you. Particularly layers, which will make things like colouring a breeze. But it can be tough to know exactly how to use those features. It's easy to end up just using the pen tool on a single layer and feeling as if you may as well just be drawing on paper.
How do pros use all those features anyway!?
Well why don't we take a snoop inside some pro manga and anime artist's files to see exactly how they get the job done!
With exclusive access to our pro artist's PSD files included with each lesson, you're free to open them in your own drawing software and take a dive into their secret workspace. See exactly how professionals organise their colouring and linework layers, and learn what kind of layer effects they use.
Invaluable for students aiming to develop high-level digital art skills, as well as for students who just want to look at separate parts of the images in detail or create their own custom guideline worksheets.
"Huh? How did you do that?"
One of the key feedback points we took away from our first subscription course is that certain learners find it really tricky to copy images with no moving visual support. Just seeing an image on screen doesn't help when you can't imagine how it got there, or what order the strokes were drawn in.
We hear you!
So this time, we've animated our lessons, and added tons of real-time drawing!
Watch as our skilled instructors put pen to paper, demystifying even the most complex of techniques, so that you can follow along with confidence and ease.
