Beginner

The Ultimate Digital Drawing Class Part Two: Steps after Beginner Basics with INHYUK LEE

with Artist, INHYUK LEE

WHAT IS THIS CLASS ABOUT?

Hi! I’m Inhyuk Lee.

Since 2012, I’ve worked with Marvel, DC Comics, Boom! Studios, Dynamite, IDW, and other comic publishers.

Over the past decade, I’ve completed more than 300 cover arts, 100 game illustrations, while still working on other projects. I started my career in 2006 and worked in different countries such as Korea, United States, and the European region.

Much like the human figure, we will learn the human muscle attachments from multiple angles: front, back, and side. However, if it is difficult to add too many shapes at once, we are able to add additional stages for students to easily approach concepts. We are adding curvatures and applying complex shapes.

WHO IS THIS CLASS FOR?

After much thought, I’ve decided to put together an intermediate course, following my beginner course. With much preparation, I was able to produce a second course that will further help students in illustration.

In this course, we go over the basics of illustration then transition to more complex elements such as shapes, proportions, symmetry and inclination of the human body. Then, we will attach human muscle figure segmentation, facial expressions, and clothing - nearing a more complete and detailed character illustration.

WHAT WILL THE STUDENTS ACHIEVE?

After learning concepts of natural muscles, we will transition to color conversion. Students will learn the basics of coloring, various tools and layers, and the properties of different filters. You will eventually be able to control the tones of the desired area and brightness from the black and white mass source.

Next, we will learn facial expressions and how they affect facial structures. You will be able to consider differences in facial shapes and ratios based on the kind of expression. I will provide examples based on what characters students like the most along the way!

 

After that, we will start learning about clothing. It is important to note that the intricacy of clothing designs is not what gives clothes value - it is rather the opposite! Even with a simple white tee and jeans, a beautiful character can be illustrated. That is why it is critical to first be able to draw clothes naturally. Students will easily be able to implement different designs that combine textures and structures.

Lastly, we will learn the 3D sketch process. Based on what we have learned up until this point, students will be able to draw a standing character illustration. You will be able to illustrate your favorite characters with 3D elements. Students will be able to apply dynamic poses, silhouettes, weapons, and other effects!

Hi! I’m Inhyuk Lee.

Since 2012, I’ve worked with Marvel, DC Comics, Boom! Studios, Dynamite, IDW, and other comic publishers.

Over the past decade, I’ve completed more than 300 cover arts, 100 game illustrations, while still working on other projects. I started my career in 2006 and worked in different countries such as Korea, United States, and the European region.

I often get questions asking why I’m teaching a beginner class with the expertise I have. It would’ve made more sense for me to teach at an advanced level. However, since I’ve been teaching for more than a decade, I believe I can share what I have learned over the years to those who are just starting out.

I continue to teach a beginner-level class because the fundamentals are extremely important when it comes to drawing. I was fortunate enough to strongly learn the basics, so I was able to begin my journey as an illustrator with the knowledge I’ve gained.

I can’t emphasize enough that learning the very basics is essential, especially when it comes to learning the art for the first time. My goal by the end of this class is for students to comfortably and skillfully illustrate on their own.

What’s difficult is not learning the basics, but more so practicing and making it your own. I will help navigate your journey in becoming an illustrator. It may be tough, but will be highly rewarding!

Throughout this class, I will help you understand important principles of illustration and advance your art skills. By the end, you will be able to comfortably illustrate on your own!
