I'm a sophomore in college with a passion for manga and anime. I've been addicted to Japanese pop culture since I was 13, and have spend the past five years doing all I could to hone my skills. I can do a wide range of styles, from traditional anime to manga shoujo, shonen, and some josei. I am most knowledgeable in character creation, but I do have some skills in manga creation and backgrounds. My preferred tools currently are my wacom drawing tablet, Adobe Photoshop, and Manga Studio debut. I can do traditional pen-and-ink, marker, and sketch.
I like to start off with the basics of drawing in general. Because anime and manga are stylized art forms, basic knowledge of drawing is the foundation of everything else. Once I think the basics have been learned, we will move on to the specifics of the style. It's up to the student what they will learn first, but I must have the freedom to decide how they are going to learn it.
I will not teach ecchi, hentai, yuri, or yaoi. This is explicit anime. I will keep my lessons clean.
My best skill set would be bishounen (pretty boys), bishoujo (pretty girls), and chibis.
I would do lessons over skype screen-sharing and video conferencing. I prefer doing one-on-one tutoring. I have never done professional tutoring before, but I do give local lessons to other kids in my neighborhood who love drawing as well.
Anime and manga are incredible art styles that has the potential to give life to imagination, allowing the artist to let others catch a glimpse of how they see the world; all that is and all it could be. To me, drawing anime requires love, and that is what I intend to impart to my students.
Art is a skill that can be learned, but the love of anime is something that can't be taught.
