Illustrator, Sungmoo Heo
Still unable to grasp how to draw the human body?
The more of a beginner you are,
the more you require a systematic curriculum that
points out only the practical core knowledge.
Sounds intimidating? Don't worry.
I will be your personal guide to drawing
the human body for natural expressions and poses.
Starting with human anatomy,
we will be composing a stylish character
with the basic theory of angles and clothes.
Sungmoo Heo’s Profile & Portfolio
Hello, this is Illustrator Sungmoo Heo.
I have been active as an artwork creator on social media
as well as an instructor with years of
experience at ‘Arteum Academy’,
which specializes in Game Concept Art.
My main goal in the drawing is to constantly
challenge myself, learn, and improve in other styles of artwork
whilst focusing on exploring illustration with
line art and character-based drawings.
I decided to launch online lectures to share
the expertise I have gained through
my experiences of being a freelancer and off-line instructor,
and to support the common concerns of students.
From the worries, being impatient,
and the limitations of drawing alone to
managing emotions and mindsets,
I hope we can solve them together through my lectures.

What Are the Strengths and Differences of Your Course from Others?
I am going to share my secrets and analytical approaches to drawing a character by applying various angles/poses/body shapes and expressing them three-dimensionally. In addition, I will talk about the difficulties often encountered as an artist, and help students develop the power to actively observe through the process of interpretation and demonstration of references.
Who Would You Recommend
the Course To?
This will be a good course for beginners who want to draw characters that are applicable in webtoons/games/animations or intermediate users who want to create colorful/diverse characters with three-dimensional and dynamic poses, to broaden the limits of their human body drawings.
What Do You Think Are the Most
Crucial Attitude And Competencies
for an Artist?
I believe a 'healthy mindset' is crucial. The conditions for learning the technical aspects of graphics have improved more than in the past; nevertheless, there will be challenges while studying. The challenges can only be gradually resolved when supported by willpower, critical thinking to solve one’s problems, and the mental ability to execute them consistently.
This course is conducted with Clip Studio Paint; please purchase and install the program's latest version for an optimized learning experience.
