It’s your character’s world, and we are just living in it.
This course will be all about telling stories through the eyes of your characters, whether it’s with a series of images or a single frame.
I’ll be sharing some of my favourite tips on how I approach anatomy, character interactions to illustrating engaging character spreads that will help form the emotional connection from your audience to your characters.
Whether you love drawing original characters or fan art, they are all welcome!


This class is for both beginner and intermediate artists who wish to bring out the appeal and successfully capture the essence of a character through fun character interactions and stylized expressions.
If you’re struggling with translating emotions and bringing movement to your drawings, I am here to help you break out of your comfort zone and push your creative mind into bringing your visualizations to life.


By the end of this course, you will learn how to apply the knowledge from anatomy practices to create dynamic character illustrations that are adapted to a style of your own.
I hope my course can help you learn to enjoy the process of creating art - it is a long and chaotic journey, but I promise the result will be something worthwhile.

Meet Your Creator
Hello! It’s Ryu here~
I am a professional doodler (who is often doodling at the wrong time, ie; inside my notebook during long uni lectures) as well as the master of starting 5 different pieces at the same time and finishing none of them.
My art journey has always been chaotic with countless amount of times where I fell into deep slumps, but at the end of the day, my love for art is too strong and that’s why I am still here! As someone who has been sharing her art on social media for almost 7 years, I hope the philosophies I’ve gathered through my experience can be of guidance for your art endeavours.
I am still on a constant learning journey with my art and I hope to use this opportunity to create a space where we can inspire and learn from each other! I look forward to meeting everyone!
