Oh, I've finally finished! It feels like this is the only thing I’ve done all day. I think the class was about an hour, but I did it for more than three hours. I'm so proud even though my back feels like it is about to break! The apartment windows were really hard, hahahahaha.
I was curious about how to draw a transparent glass. I’m happy that I was able to learn from this lesson. Now I can draw it on my own! I’m looking forward to the next lesson

It’s so fascinating that I can make an animation so easily.
In what style will you draw?
Hello, I’m Jay, an illustrator who focuses on character and character-oriented drawings.
What do you want to draw? I like to complete the picture by adding elements from my own imagination and scenery I fell in love with. I want to share with you this inspirational process.
Record the things you want to draw as photos
Objects, scenery, and people, Everything into an iPad drawing.
In this class, we are going to combine 3 elements into illustrations: objects, people, and scenery. By drawing materials that we encounter in everyday life, we will overcome your fears of painting and develop your drawing skills so that you can draw moments in everyday life or while you travel!
Step 1. Drawing Objects
Recreate your coffee table
We will start with easy steps, practicing with small objects to warm up.
I like to draw a memorable object each day; a diary, a cup of coffee at a cafe, a delicious snack, or a cute new accessory. Drawings can capture the feelings of your day stronger than text. Start by drawing the little elements around you.
Step 2. Drawing Scenery
Record moments that you don’t want to forget
Draw the moments you've captured in your photos into illustrations. Photos don't fully capture the scenery in the way you see them. They don’t capture the sheer awe of a sunrise on the beach, or the brilliance of the lights on an empty track at night. I’ll show you how to draw scenes with bolder colors and composition.
Use vanishing points and Procreate's drawing guides to make drawing scenery a little easier.
I'll also show you how to add shadows to enhance the depth of your drawings and how to color to increase the quality of the illustration.
Step 3. Drawing People
Drawing people add stories to illustration. But it can be difficult, and so I practiced endlessly. I have found that drawing with a few tips will make it easier to draw a character. I’ll teach you the tricks I’ve learned for drawing any person in any pose, flawlessly.
In the class, I'll teach you about simple lines and shade, and drawing people using only a few colors. We will start with special characteristics and lifestyles as a concept, then work from there. You’ll be able to practice various poses, and even beginners will be able to master drawing people.
By the end of class, you will walk away with many skills, such as how to express faces according to the angle, how to portray the wrinkle in clothes, and easily drawing your hands and feet. I want to show you how to simply draw what you see with pictures and take away the pressure of drawing according to specific rules.
I’ll even show you an easy way to add animation
In ProCreate, it is possible to convert files to gif and mp4, making it ideal for creating animations.
The above animation expresses the feeling of wind blowing blowing through hair with a total of 4 images. I'll show you how to easily create animations by changing only parts of your illustrations. The biggest appeal of digital drawing is that you can easily draw anywhere, anytime!
In addition, it is possible to erase and redraw lines, so there is no burden of making mistakes, and you can try out various techniques, so even beginners can easily find their own style!
Create special illustrations of your own.

Here is a photo of the book.
I think I have been drawing pictures as a habit since I was very young. I have spent time practicing while always trying to draw better. Painting is still my best hobby. You can see my work in more detail when you come to my Instagram.
