Instagram sensation and anime artist Yoai, is releasing a book March 26th called Chibi Art Class: A Complete Course in Drawing Chibi Cuties and Beasties and we have a copy to give away to one lucky reader (follow us on Instagram for details, will announce rules this week)!
If you love kawaii, anime, or just cuteness in general, try Chibi Art Class! Chibi means “short” in Japanese and these figures can be recognized by their small bodies, large heads, and exaggerated eyes (kinda like Funko Pop dolls, but not exactly). They are super cute, and made easy to draw with this 144 page paperback in which Yoai teaches you the art of chibi, step by adorable step. You don’t have to have a lot of experience or even fancy pencils/markers.
In this book, you’ll find:
- Tutorials on recreating signature chibi features and props, including dreamy eyes, mini-skirts, vibrant hair, colorful bows, and boba cups.
- Drawing, coloring, and shading instruction to create fully-formed versions of these vertically challenged, baby-faced characters and their kawaii little companions.
- Several pages that allow you to create your own original characters and add your own color and shading to several colorless cuties.
