These are my classmates from last year. They gave me this idea!! They asked me to draw them all, but if I had this method, I would have drawn it for them before, but it's too bad! They are so pretty, so I drew them with a happy heart! I didn't put shadows in because I was too tired.

I found out when I was fixing it, and I was habitually drawing crooked lines. Thanks to you, I think I will be able to take more care of my next drawing. Thank you.
-by Jongho Kim
I took a picture of the sky, drew me and my boyfriend on the sky, and gave him a present! It's not a realistic painting, it's a character painting, but it was easy for me to draw
Create illustrations that warm your heart
I want to draw a blanket-like picture that can warmly cover my viewers. So when they need something warm, they can grab it and cover themselves in the warmth.
In the past, I only thought about drawing “well”. The composition of the background needed to be perfect, and I studied anatomy because I wanted my characters to look as realistic as possible. I could paint well, but I think I couldn't draw good illustrations.
I thought a lot about how to make my art stand out among the millions of works of art already circulating through the world. After worrying for a long time, I put down the things I had been studying and started looking for more important things with a child-like mind. That’s how I developed my own characteristics and strength.
To tell you some tricks..
First is simple but powerful colors.
You can express the story you want to tell in a rich way without using all the brilliant colors that exist in reality. I will teach you how to create depth with a few, simple colors.
Second is the story.
There are so many stories in the world and you may be wondering which one to draw. I focus on the story of people’s daily life. It's the charm of everyday life that shines simply without great adventures or fancy formulas.
The last is speech bubbles.
Speech bubbles in illustrations are just as important as the drawings themselves. They express the emotions and situations of the person in short sentences. It captures memories in a different way from the diary I used to write when I was a kid.
You can keep your own stories and everyday life as pictures. You can remember those moments for longer, in a more precious and sweeter way.
Here’s what you’ll learn
Create your own character and easily draw the human body
Vintage food illustrations emphasized the texture and appearance of food by exaggerating the crunchiness of bread or the glistening of ice cubes. You will learn to capture the same feeling in your own drawings by the end of this course.
Draw a background around and fill it with color.
From the small items around you to drawing your neighborhood landscape, learn how to think and express complex objects simply. In addition, I will show you a coloring method that allows you to express deeply with only a few simple colors, without having to use a bunch of complex colors.
Tips so you can record your daily life by yourself!
I have included all of my personal tips and tricks so that you can continue to record your daily life even after class is finished. From tracing techniques, getting richer colors, how to use layers to express light, to how to manage files! These tips will not only help you create easily, but also increase the quality of your illustrations.
Capture your happy moments.

Artist Grim B
Hello, I’m Sungtae Bae (Grim B), an illustrator and your instructor.
I live with my wife and three cats. I write stories and write books based on the life that we live. In the theme of happiness and love, I am creating various works starting my wife and I, and our cats.
One day on our honeymoon, I suddenly decided that I wanted to hold onto our precious daily life, so I started drawing it. Unlike special stories that are easily remembered, everyday life seems to pass us by and disappear if you don't try and remember it.
I like it when you look at a drawing and you can reimagine those moments like a video playing in your mind. You can think of it as leaving a drawing for moments that you can’t capture in a photo.
I want to draw a blanket-like picture that can warmly cover the reader. When you need something warm, you can grab it and cover yourself with it.

Q.Can a beginner easily follow?
A. Of course! This class is not an in-depth process for those who are already good at drawing, but it was created to open the way for those who are new to painting to enjoy their future as artists. When you first learn the features of Photoshop, there are a lot of things that you need to learn, and it can be difficult, but in the part where you paint on your own, you will learn how to think easily of drawing and I will help you draw complicated things, so it will not be difficult! Since it is difficult for those who are not familiar with painting from the beginning to draw the same as me, I made it a goal to find my own painting style in easy forms.
Q. Can I take lectures on an iPad or a tools other than Photoshop and a tablet?
A. Yes and no. Because I use a lot of Photoshop tools, functions, and shortcuts, if the devices are different, you may not be able to use the method I teach. But the important thing is learning how to draw a picture! This class explains how to draw a picture easily, so even if the tools you use are not Photoshop and a tablet, you can take a lecture even if it feels a little uncomfortable. However, it is probably best to take the class using same tool I use: D
Q. Can I continue to paint on my own after class?
A. I would like to tell you how to draw in your own style easily, rather than making it look the way I draw from the beginning. So the most important thing is to continue to practice alone after the lecture. While listening to the class, if you think about and draw various ways with me, it may be a short time, but your daily life will become richer in the future!
I hope you will enjoy sharing your progress even after class is over :)
