I’ve been drawing since I was three years old. Over the years I’ve learned techniques and secrets from lots of different places, and have invented some of my own.
But the information I came across in my search for better skill as an artist always seemed to be lacking in the same way, that being … the amount of explanation given to instruct on how to achieve a particular result was limited. When you want the answers to certain questions, quite often many of the crucial steps are missing from those instructions, and many important questions go unanswered.

Having had to learn these steps myself over a long period of time, I’m excited to present these anime/manga drawing techniques in a clear, concise and well-explained manner, so that even the most inexperienced artist will be able to increase their skill exponentially in a short amount of time.

This class is suitable for children, teens and adults – as my skills extend beyond school level. The skills you will learn here will not limit you to just drawing comics or cartoons, but you will learn very real art skills that can apply to many different styles, ie: accurate human anatomy and proportion.

The reason this course is presented in anime style is to capture the attention of children and to offer a style that is different from most art teachers. It also helps them to learn accurate artistic skill, in an interesting and simplistic way.
