CG MANGA Illustration in a Nutshell

About the course

Drawing is wonderful. A white canvas represents endless possibilities. You can draw actual people and things in your life; you can draw how you feel about certain person or incident; you can draw your expectations for the future and your memory about the past; you can even create a whole world from your imagination.

However, learning to draw can be hard – even frustrating. Sometimes we have to give up a great idea because our techniques do not allow us to show it on the picture.

Facing this challenge, you first need a method – a method that allows you to easily draw basic things. Then it will be easier for you to stay interested in drawing, and continue you way to becoming a good illustrator.

The purpose of this course is to introduce you to a series of solid methods that you can use to draw manga-style digital illustrations while improving your drawing skills. I hope this course can help you find more fun in illustrations.

About me

Hello ACG fans and fellow digital artists,

I am a digital illustrator, course instructor and graphic designer. In the past 8 years, I worked on illustration and character design projects for computer games, trading card games and ACG magazines.

I started my own studio 4 years ago and have taught digital illustration to more than 140 students in live sessions. Now I am experimenting with teaching digital illustration online based on my live teaching experience.

It took me 3 years to plan, record, edit and refine the courses I offer right now. And I believe a course is never done, but always improving. So I’d really appreciate your feedback and will keep making the course better.
