Eggutarto’s Drawing Workflow from Sketch to Finish

From the initial concept to the finishing touches, you’ll learn the steps of line work, shading, and detailing that give your artwork personality. This section specifically focuses on rendering commonly drawn subjects such as hair, eyes, skin, and more. You will also learn tips on animation planning before diving into your illustration.

From Illustration to Animation: Layer Separation Explained

To avoid creating a stiff animation of your character, you must understand the basics of layer separation first. What layer comes on top of the character’s head or their eyes? In this section, you will gain a better understanding of the importance of layering as well as learn how to use masks that can help you achieve specific effects during the rigging process.

Rigging and Animating: Key Steps to Breathe Life into Your Characters

The key skill of this course is not only to learn the basics of the Live2D software but also to learn how to make your characters move smoothly. In this section, you will learn how to use different parameters, curves, and physics to create a live 2D animation of your character.

You’ll Learn:
  • Illustration Drawing and Rendering Techniques: Explore the steps of creating a character illustration, from sketch to finish. Discover methods to create depth, intricate details, and captivating visual rendering in your artwork. Along with illustration techniques, you will also learn how to plan your animation during the sketch phase.

  • Thought Process of Layer Separation of an Illustration: Understanding layer separation is the key to a wider range of motion for your animation. Upon learning the thought process as you create your illustration, you will find layer separation much easier to understand.

  • Introduction to Live2d: Deformers, Parameters, and Physics: This class will teach you the basic functions of Live2D to animate your illustrations. As the workload is comparatively lighter than that of a regular VTuber model, this class will be a fun introduction to the Live2D software!
