Manga Character Drawing

Discover the secrets to creating authentic manga style artwork! This class will cover figure drawing in the manga style with lessons in anatomy, proportions, facial construction, expression, and poses. Step-by-step instruction and invaluable drawing tips will help you simplify and personalize your manga drawing style.

MANGA CHARACTER DRAWING will be modeled after Shoujo/Shonen style manga which is frequently favored by teenagers and adults alike. These characters are much more lifelike in appearance and behavior although there are many story lines that feature supernatural people and creatures. Gender becomes much more of a factor at this level since boys are attracted to Shonen (competition, sports, warfare, supernatural characters, etc.) stories, and girls favor Shoujo (socialization, relationships, dating, fashion, etc.) stories. The literal translation of Shonen is "boy" and Shoujo is "young girl". 

CLASSES ARE SIZE LIMITED to eight students. The studio environment is managed so students learn to accept challenges, solve problems and judge their own artwork without debilitating self-criticism.  Please call (608) 513 8134 for more information.
