Hello, 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.

Interview with
Illustrator KanashiKumo

Background Images
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.
