'A picture is worth a thousand words’. How many times have you heard that? I’m here to tell you it is true. Many ideas can be conveyed by a single still image, which conveys its own meaning and essence more effectively than a mere verbal description. I will teach you my visual storytelling techniques and character design skills that I incorporate into my illustrations, in which you can apply to yours!


This class is for anyone interested in anime-style illustration. You will learn techniques that I have developed over years of illustrating characters and scenes. If you want to unlock your own creativity to its fullest, this class is the right fit for you!


By the end of this class, you will have a greater understanding in drawing your original characters with their own unique stories in anime style. You will know the fundamentals of composition and perspective. Upon completion, you will be able to tackle your own illustrations and ideas with confidence.
