Quick tips for how to draw anime

Our FREE Youtube quick tips series has been given a makeover! We’ve relaunched the series as “Manga in Minute,” and putting more focus on making the videos quick, concise and full of helpful advice. You’ll now see more of our teacher’s pen strokes and movements as they draw – making the video even easier to follow.

More colourful, dynamic, and student-friendly, but still all under a minute! The next video in our “Manga in a Minute” course will show you how to add detail to clothing like knitted sweaters.

The videos in this series give concise, to-the-point advice that you can immediately start using to improve your work!

All of the techniques are used by professional artists in the anime and manga industry here in Japan. And now we’re sharing them so that you can use them too!
