What are your strengths and what makes you unique as an instructor?
I want to help students who are unable to express themselves through their drawing skills. I plan to show my students a variety of ways to create amazing drawings with the skills they already have. I also prepared a number of actual drawing exercises to show students how to self-examine their work and provide their own feedback.
What makes this CLASS+ special?
While the original class mostly centered around illustrations, I focused more on the characters for CLASS+. I think this will make the class more easily accessible, even to those who struggled to follow the original course. Also, since it concentrates on the essential parts of characters—such as facial features, hair, and body shapes—I hope it will help those who are struggling to start drawing a character.
In what ways do you think students will improve through this class?
Interestingly enough, artists are more likely to repeat the same mistakes again and again rather than make new ones while drawing characters. That’s why this class explores aspects that one can easily get wrong, as well as those in which they may fall into the trap of subconscious, habitual drawing, and then how to deal with that. I believe this will allow students to improve their weak points and cut down on mistakes through practice.
