Class Recommended by Gatan's Students
Student A's WorkI highly recommend this course for those who are just starting out with coloring or are struggling to find their direction in it. Not only will you learn about theories like light, shadow, and color combinations, but you'll also receive detailed guidance on areas to improve, allowing you to improve your coloring skills.
Student B’s ArtworkI wanted to draw a variety of things, regardless of age, gender, or genre. This program is great for gradual improvement because the coloring process is broken down so it’s easy for students to follow and learn about the human form. I'd recommend this to those who want to improve the quality of their coloring.
OO Kim (Actual student)The class covered many areas, such as how to get proportions right and how to draw in various postures, but what helped the most was the coloring techniques. Thanks to the instructor's tips, I was able to deepen my understanding of color.
OO Ahn (Actual student)I’ve admired Gatan since the Dungeon & Fighter days. When I heard that he was instructing and offering a class, I immediately enrolled. The class was very useful, teaching how to handle light and shadow to achieve more of a laidback mood, and how to elevate details in a semi-realistic, casual design!

with Illustrator Gatan
What do you consider your strengths when you work?
Most of the artwork I've produced so far has been character illustrations for promoting games and such. Promotional illustrations require not only character emphasis but also a high level of overall completeness in the artwork. I've studied ways to make the character stand out against the background, emphasizing texture and maximizing detail for a polished finish. I aim to share the expertise I've accumulated over a long career through this class.
How are your unique strengths integrated into this class curriculum?
Many people may think that professionals like me use special retouching skills or brushes, but I rarely use layer attributes like overlay or screen. Details will naturally emerge in the final stages if you maximize the lights and shadows in intricate areas of the artwork. My focus is teaching you not just basic theories, but also advanced techniques as a whole.
What is the purpose behind this class, and what sets it apart from others?
I've prepared a comprehensive curriculum that allows you to choose the level of difficulty in coloring to specifically improve your skills. The class is designed to be hands-on—the emphasis is on actual work rather than idle watching. By the end of the class, you'll be able to fully apply color theory in your drawings. You won't just learn bits and pieces of the material. You'll experience completing various character illustrations from start to finish.
Please leave a message for future students and aspiring creators.
This class is geared toward those who want to take up drawing as a serious hobby or even turn it into a profession. It's structured to provide a unique level of difficulty and method of teaching for those who have found limitations in multiple online classes. I'll help you build your skills by repeatedly learning the complicated theories of light and color and by practicing drawing them for yourself.
This course will use Photoshop CS6.
