Class101 – Learn How to Design and Draw Your Own Anime Characters With a Tablet by Pesa Free Download
Create your own anime character illustrations
Hello, I’m Pesa, an illustrator who wants to embody happiness and hope into illustrations that tell a story. Little by little, I drew scenes of things I like and wished for and it brought me here to Class101.
The world of art
Art is a tool and a means to express various feelings such as a person’s wishes, emotions, and thoughts in a visual form beyond a simple object, a person, and a landscape, and sometimes express a person and communicate with them. As the possibilities are endless, it is something that many people pursue.
Starting alone can be scary
Are you worried about whether or not you’ll be able to finish even a single illustration or that it’ll take forever to complete it? Don’t worry too much. There is no fixed answer in drawing. I’ll help you until the illustration you want comes out. Through this class, you’ll learn everything you need to know from visualization to the post-coloring editing.
Is there anything I need to prepare?
I usually draw using a tablet with a screen and the Paint Tool SAI program. As I use it as my main tool, Paint Tool SAI is needed for the class, but it is not essential to have the exact same working environment with the exact same tablet as me. The goal is to make the class applicable to various devices and programs. However, you need to know that the characteristics of each program may be different, so there may be slight differences when you take the class using different software.
Controlling the expression of your brushes
Just by adding and subtracting pressure to your lines, you can greatly improve the quality of your illustrations. There are many ways to adjust pressure of lines, but I’m going to show you all the different methods you can use and how I use each one.
Exploring the human body and applying it to your drawings
If you learn about the basic structure and proportions of the human body and how to apply it in my drawings, drawing characters becomes easy! Based on this, I’ll show you how to compose various poses and compositions, and organize your screen to capture your viewers’ eyes.
Draw an ideal face and various expressions
Learn the basic structure and proportions of your face, and express the ideal face that meets your standards and aesthetics. In addition, I will teach you how to portray age and personality of the character, and how proportions of the face vary depending on the angle.
Expressing the folds and wrinkles in clothes
When drawing, there are many people who have difficulty expressing wrinkles in clothing. First, we will practice looking at the wrinkles of clothes as a single flow. It is as if the water flows on the surface of an object, and the silhouette is captured and expressed. In addition, we will learn how expression changes with a bend in the joints, differing thicknesses of the fabric, and varying materials.
Color the way you want
Have you ever thought that the colors you choose don’t match each other and seem to play separately? Let’s learn how to combine natural colors with complementary colors, analogous colors, and use light and shadows to select natural colors while matching. There are various coloring techniques that can work for you. You don’t have to stick with just one method. Take the time to find a coloring method that you like and that suits your style.
Completing a high quality illustration
Take the above process and draw an illustration. Starting with deciding on your subject and creating a story, I will help you envision your screen and express the character you want in the way you want. With me, you’ll be able to draw a unique illustration of your own.
I support all of you
I think that people will apply for this class for a variety of reasons, such as ‘I want to learn to draw for the first time’, ‘I want to restart drawing after a long break’, or ‘I have been drawing for a while, but I feel like I’m still not good enough’. The drawing itself can be difficult and awkward, but I hope that you can have fun and continue to draw through the classes and through your own activities. I will always support my students’ activities!

In closing: Pesa’s parting thoughts
Sharing the happiness of drawing
I was fascinated by the colorful merits of paintings, and so I continued to draw. Drawing to me is a natural act like breathing, and it’s a great thing to cherish in everyday life. That’s why I would like to encourage many people to recognize the loveliness of illustration and pick their brush up once again.
If you can express anything you see and feel without a clear plan or extensive painting knowledge, I think you are already a great artist. If any of these processes are still unfamiliar to you or you lack confidence in expression, I would like to help.
