Description

What is Manga Art School?

Manga Art School is a 2-6 week learn-anywhere video course where you learn to become adept at drawing professional and authentic Japanese Manga and Anime character stylization. I’ve hand-crafted the Manga Art School: Anime and Manga Style Character Drawing course to be the only course you need, to learn all the core fundamentals and advanced stylization and proportional knowledge needed to draw and sketch Manga and Anime style characters well. If you’re an absolute beginner or you’re already at an intermediate level, the course will advance your current ability to not only a professional level, but help you achieve an authentic and appealing manga or anime style in your character work. You won't end up with Anime or Manga characters that don't look "quite" like true manga style - no, this course will show you how to achieve a real Japanese Anime and Manga stylization of your work.. The course is a comprehensive 6 module guided video course, where the only limit to your progression is your determination and engagement in learning the concepts and engaging in the rewarding assignments.

Whether you want to draw stylized characters for Manga, Anime, or Manga genres such as Shoujo, Shounin, Bishoujo, your own Doujinshi, or Kodomo manga style characters, this is the course you need to get you there.

I’ll teach you to draw in a true manga style without fear. I’ll teach you to draw an authentic manga style well.

Finally, Learn Manga and Anime Style Drawing Well

Whether you’re a complete beginner, or intermediate at drawing Manga styles, you’ll learn things you never knew you never knew. Immense time and research, as well as years of drawing experience have gone into creating a course that distills the core information you need to know, in order to draw convincing and authentic manga or anime style characters. I’m so convinced of this, I’ll give you a no-questions asked refund if you’re not satisfied.

Clear, Easy to Understand Lessons

Crystal clear in fact. Learning Manga and Anime stylization effectively means having information presented in a logical and coherent way. The Manga Art School Course is modular by design, easy to grasp, and allows you to learn in a well paced, structured way. Engage in the course chronologically, then revise each module at your leisure. Grasp concepts faster than you ever have before – there’s no fluff here. (and really, this no fluff promise is in all of my courses!)

Assignments that are Rewarding

Bridging the gap between theory and practice, each module’s assignments have been designed to both reinforce theory, and feel rewarding. I’ve taken the core of the theory, and purpose built each assignment to help you rapidly progress, and you’ll see the difference in your own work almost immediately. Art is about doing, so let’s get started.

What's Your Style?

Anime and Manga is not simply one single style, but has many, many variants. This course teaches you the foundational stylistic rules that are common among all styles, allowing you not only to draw authentic manga and anime characters, but create your own style that is still true to the original Japanese principles. I'm not teaching you a 'method' or a 'way' to draw the styles, I'm teaching you to be a fundamentally good Manga and Anime style character artist.

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone who wants to learn to draw authentic and appealing Manga and Anime style Characters
  • Individuals who love Anime, Manga, Manga Drawing, Shoujo, Shounin, Bishoujo, Doujinshi and Kodomo Manga
  • All Otaku are welcome!
