I’m Illustrator, KanashiKumo.
I have spent a lot of my time
studying on my own,
constantly researching ways
to draw more efficiently.
Currently, I teach at Fevercell Academy, using the knowledge I gained to help other people like myself address the difficulties they encounter when studying art, and I’m grateful that many students have found my class helpful.
Having worked with numerous students over the years, I have a deep understanding of how to help them overcome their weaknesses and challenges. I draw upon my experience in teaching drawing theory and utilizing practice exercises.

Reviews from Actual Students
Student AThe instructor gave us feedback on all the necessary components of stylized illustrations, including the viewer's gaze, the value flow, structural aspects, and how brightness changes depending on the direction of light.
Student BI used to just copy the style of my favorite artist. This class was filled with easy-to-understand instructions that helped me work my way towards my goal based on a solid foundation. I highly recommend the class for people who are struggling because they don’t have a solid foundation.
Student CThe instructor instantly let me know when I made mistakes, which helped me improve my skills more quickly than I expected. At first, I couldn't even draw a box properly, but now I am very satisfied with being able to capture three-dimensionality and light/darkness the way I want to.

Delve into the essentials of creating space in your illustrations, including figure attributes, perspective, light, color, composition, and more. Explore how each theory is applied through exercises and practice materials, and discover the joy of drawing.
Understanding Brightness through Black and White Illustrations
Learn about the notion of brightness and color in black and white drawings. Experiment with different color schemes in your illustrations. Learn layering methods as well to give your illustrations the vibe you want.
Illustrations that Highlight the Charm of Space and Characters
Take into account the design elements frequently included in locations and compositions, such as natural and artificial objects, indoors and outdoors, and hazy weather, and practice understanding how to place them so they look more visually appealing. Also consider the characteristics of light to bring out a location's features and mood.
Placing Figures that Emphasize the ThemeUnderstand the characteristics of aesthetically pleasing figures and explore them from various perspectives, including size, direction, color, and more.
Practice Applying Light and ShadePractice depicting the same object in light, mid-tone, and dark tones, create black and white illustrations that convey a sense of space through differences in brightness, and understand how brightness can be used to create a distinct sense of space.
Designing a Canvas that Captures the Sense of SpaceLearn perspective and a sense of space, and practice depicting three-dimensionality in a two-dimensional space by giving characters a structured three-dimensional appearance.
Understanding the Human Body's 3 Dimensionality & Rotating Characters in the Desired DirectionFamiliarize yourself with understanding characters by three-dimensionalizing them to be naturally structured in space, and learn to practice using photographs.
Choosing Colors and Color CombinationsGain hands-on experience in distinguishing between achromatic and chromatic colors to develop a better understanding of color theory. Practice transforming black and white illustrations into color illustrations using specific color palettes.

What would you say that your forte is as an illustrator?
I believe that my strength lies in understanding the elements to consider at each stage of creating an illustration, rather than simply ‘going with the flow.’ I will share with the students both the technical skills necessary for drawing effectively and a perspective on how to observe the world around us.
How are your strengths incorporated into the class?
I have a deep understanding of the challenges self-taught illustrators encounter, and the reasons why many students struggle to advance their skills beyond a certain point. Drawing from my teaching experience, I will provide an in-depth explanation of how theories are integrated into the illustration creation process, and how they are applied in practice.
What makes this class so special?
My approach goes beyond merely explaining the theories of illustration. This class effectively demonstrates how to control various aspects of lighting and figure environments that are used in real illustrations. Students will have the opportunity to create illustrations for a range of settings, while simultaneously acquiring the skills needed to incorporate the unique characteristics of each location, including its design elements, colors, and mood.
