Profile & Portfolio
Hello, My name is Seoji,
and I am working as an illustrator.
I have taught many students
while working on different illustrations
for various Netmarble games such as
"How to Train Your Monster", "The Knights Chronicle" etc.
When I draw, I usually focus
on the Deformation (Stylization)
and the lively movements of the character,
As well as on expressing the character's personality
That is especially important
when drawing Anime characters.
As many people pointed this out
as one of my biggest strengths,
In this class, I will show you a step-by-step procedure
on how I create a Anime character
With my own skills on deformation application.
Based on my experience as an illustrator,
I will teach you how to develop
and improve your skills
In the most effective and easiest way possible,
And I will play the role of a guide
So that you can figure out
your own strengths and weaknesses.
So even if you're trying Stylized character
for the first time,
please trust me and follow me.

For which students is this class appropriate?
I recommend it to anyone who knows how to complete a painting to a certain extent, but has difficulty adding techniques or personalities, and who wants to enter into stylized characters. If the character's personality or deformation is not enough to make it look stylized, the painting will look hard in general, but this class will solve all your problems.
What effect does the deformation technique have on the Stylized Character?
Unlike live-action and half-live that focus on drawing delicately, omitting and highlighting certain parts is important in stylized characters. In my class, I'd like to teach you how to quickly and easily understand what parts of the character should be highlighted and omitted during drawing.
In order to level up quickly along with the class, What type of effort should we make?
You should stick to the basics of deformation, the core of the class. Stylized painting is a combination of various shapes, and in order to make the shape look good, I recommend you practice basic straight lines, curves, circles, squares, and triangles. In this class, I will show you all the process of drawing stylized characters with the deformation principle.
What is the main point of the class that you want the student to get?
I can't pick just one. However, I would say the ability to complete stylized characters through understanding deformation, revitalizing the drawing with animated like color expressions, and developing skills by boldly utilizing various effects. After finishing the class, you will be able to catch and draw a scene from an animation.
