About This Class


Hi!

I'm Rachel. I'm a devoted artist of fantasy and manga and I hope to share what I've learned works best when drawing and sketching!

This class teaches drawing female characters in the style of "Manga", a stylized japanese art, intending to create fanart, or art devoted to popular media. Fanart shows how much a fan you are in an artistic way. I'll teach you how to draw portraits of manga styled girls, express emotion, draw hairstyles, and usage of lines using photoshop. However a sketchbook and pencil are great if you prefer.

I can't wait to teach you!
