Drawing is wonderful. A white canvas represents endless possibilities. You can draw actual people and things in you 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.
This is the third volume of the 3-part digital illustration course. You can find other volumes and a complete bundle on Udemy.

Drawing hands is difficult. But there are still some skills to help us to draw them well. We will talk about this in the coming two lessons.
The first thing is learning the proportions. Relation between hand and the whole body is also important to create great works.
More examples are included in this lesson to show you how to use the skills to draw natural hands.
We are going to draw a complete illustration by the end of the course. Before that, let me quickly introduce you to the basics of composition. Refer to Lesson 2.10 in the Learning Guide for full content of this lesson.
At last, you make it here. You’ve put a lot into your head and practiced a lot to improve you drawing skill... In this last section of the course I will show you my workflow to complete an artwork. I will introduce most important skills to draw like I do and I hope these skills can help you improve.
As always, the first part is about designing composition, line art, and some basic coloring skills. Also, you can see the process of drawing a simple background.
Best skills for you in the final lesson. The video is really long because I can’t find a point to cut... But believe me, it’s worth the time.
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 like a software: it is never done, but always improving. So I'd really appreciate your feedback and will keep making the course better.
