I’m uploading my colored illustration. The atmosphere changes so much based on where shadows are. I guess I need more practice.

I think I'm too busy copying pictures, so I think I'm thinking less about shapes and shades! It's more fun drawing what you like. Thank you so much for your detailed classes the whole time! I was lazy, and I was cramming because there wasn’t much class time left, so thank you for always posting my detailed and detailed feedback quickly!!

I didn't come up with a character that I would like to draw anew. This is a side-by-side of a drawing from two years ago that I messed up while coloring and a newer one I colored during class. After taking your class, I think I can handle the light better using a toned down similar color series! If you have feedback, please tell ~!

Hello! I'm Udon, an illustrator & your instructor.
I'm working on reinterpreting digital painting and the moments I want to remember using Photoshop as a medium. In addition, I've been recently painting in a wide range of styles with various paintings, including characters and character illustrations.
Express the way you want.
Elements of your own are important when it comes to illustration work but, the most important thing is the ability to express what you want, how you want.
There were so many I wanted to draw, but I couldn’t draw them all because of my limited knowledge in artistic expression. So, rather than drawing a picture, I focused on building the basic skills and senses that I need to draw a variety of things. In this class, I will show you everything I’ve learned, and you will improve your basic skills & senses that you need in order to draw.
Let's express our favorite things in many different ways!
A story expressed in a single illustration
So that the people who appreciate the paintings can interpret it in many ways, creating a story and expressing it in one illustration is one of the key points in good illustration. It would be best to start with your story :)
Express in digital painting
The advantage of digital painting is that you can draw a picture in the atmosphere you want in a relatively convenient way, regardless of material and expression. Let's learn the basics of painting and how to use Photoshop, and express yourself in various ways on an empty canvas!
In this class, we will focus on everything you need to know to create amazing illustrations. For those of you who find it difficult to draw pictures with Photoshop, I’ll teach you about various functions to help you with your work, the components that make a picture attractive, and how to achieve effects that vary according to different techniques and expressions, etc.
Lastly, I will show you an easy overview of the important basics of drawing! The goal of this class is to explore and learn the necessary fundamentals and techniques together, find your own style, or broaden your spectrum of expression.
From the sketch to completion
Solely depicting an object well does not make a good illustration. By the end of the class, you’ll walk away with the knowledge needed to know what factors it takes to draw an attractive illustration that catches people's eyes!
Come learn how to create on Photoshop.

Q. I’m new to drawing. Can I still follow along?
A. Yes! For those who are drawing for the first time, I would like to explain the basic theory that tends to be difficult and boring as easily as possible. By the end of class, you should have a solid understanding so that you can fully utilize it by yourself :)
Q. Can I take the class with a program other than Photoshop?
A. You will be actively using the functions of Photoshop for each chapter, but in the process, you need to find replacements for the unique functions of Photoshop on your other program. However, since it is a beginner class, I don't think there will be much difference from other programs in terms of basic functions!
