Oooh! Welcome welcome~ I'm Starlaa! I'm the head teacher of this lil art academy! Here is where the art senpais
Senpai is an upperclassman who mentors an underclassman. Can also mean "earlier colleague" or "teacher"
share their art secrets. I'm still obviously not the best at art, but I have been drawing for some years now, roughly 4-5 years maybe? Well so at the very least I can help beginners out! Please read all the tabs below, these all are useful info if you wanna be a student or teacher!

The academy is currently accepting both new students and teachers

Rules

  • Follow PFQ Rules
  • Do not be mean or rude to others and do not put others down. There is a fine line between just being hateful and giving contructive criticism. Don't go into the hateful side.
  • Tracing is only allowed for PRACTICE, do not use traced work for assignments unless specifically asked to trace. I think tracing is good for practice as it help you memorize how a thing ACTUALLY looks like and stabilize your drawing hand.
  • Bases are also only to be used if you credit the base you used AND the base you use has nothing to do with the assignment (taking a hair assignment, and using a base so you don't have to draw the body BUT drawing the hair completely by hand is okay!)
  • To apply as a teacher you must have AT LEAST 2 years of experience in art
  • More can be added
    The password is: Your Fave PKMN Starter, if you have multiple pretend it's a fusion of them and say a fusion name
    at any time, please do your part to stay up to date wit the rules.

StarlaSketch's Classes

Guidelines and how great they are

"What are guidelines?" You might ask, well they are what an artist first draws when making any piece, they are a base of sorts. I will teach you how to use em to help make your art more precise!

Cartoony Anatomy

aksdhask I am trash at actual anatomy, I can only do cute cartoony anatomy for ya.

Shading

wwooooo my fave! If you master shading, even with silly lineart your art will look cool! Shading can also help express emotions or where the character is at!

Character Design

Character design is complex and opinionated take everything I say as just another perceptive~

Redlining

This is just a critic class, if you just wanna occasionally stroll in and ask for critic or redline of your piece, where I will point out the parts I think is odd or needs more improvement on!

Basics of Cute Art

Here is how to be cute in art!

H A I R

Ah, yes hair, lovely, lovely hair, I shall teach you the art of hair.

Ava’s classes

✦Basic anatomy

Basic knowledge of the human body helpful for drawing.

✦Basic composition

The composition is how you arrange all the items in your drawing. It’s important to know how to place everything in a drawing.

✦Shading

I will teach how I do the shades/lights.

✦Eyes

People often struggle drawing the eyes and I think it’s the most important and expressive part of a character. Study of different kind of eyes.

✦Hands

Hands are difficult, but there are some tricks to draw them better.

✦Hair

Tips and tricks to drawing hair.
Here is where a bunch of tips and tutorials by the teachers will be placed~ Teachers please PM me if you wanna add onto it!

Starla's Tip no.1

Try learning to use an art program that isn't MS Paint. As it's very limited, it doesn't even have the life-saving layers ;-; Try using Medibang Paint, Ibis Paint, Fire Alpaca. And guess what? Those 3 are completely free. Of course, there's also Photoshop, Paint Tool Sai
My fave <3
, and Clip Studio Paint too. But they aren't free. Tho if you don't mind spending money on them then go ahead ^^

Starla's Tip no.2

Try flipping your drawing as you sketch, it helps you see mistakes more cleary! Sometimes your eyes get used to your mistakes and kinda fix em for you, but flipping the image makes it seem like you're seeing it for the first time!

Ava’s tip 1: More sketches

✦When you start with a drawing try sketching three different poses/angles, it will work as a warm up and it will help you to see more points of view you didn’t think about at first. Maybe your second or third sketch will be better than your first one and you will end up using that one!

Ava’s tip 2: Layer modes

✦Don’t be afraid of using layer modes. Layer modes are really helpful, they can make gorgeous effects. I use them for highlights (shine/luminosity modes), playing with the colors (overlay mode), giving the whole drawing an atmosphere (multiply, shade modes)... The best thing you can do is experiment with them, that way you will know if you like it or not.

Ava’s tip 3: Take a break

✦If something’s off with your drawing but you don’t know what is it you can zoom out. Sometimes you need to see the whole drawing from a distance to see the mistakes. I like to flip the canvas as well, but if nothing of that helps the only thing you can do is take a break. If you still can’t see what’s wrong, you can always ask for help to friends/other artists.

Ava’s tip 4: Art style

✦Don’t worry too much about your personal art style. I’ve seen a lot of people obsessed about it, to the point that they get frustrated by their art and they stop drawing. Your personal style will develop itself. Everyone has an art style, it’s in the way we see the world and draw it. You can change it, of course, just don’t worry too much about it!

Ava’s tip 5: Start with a base

✦Draw “naked” people/characters and then add the clothes/items. Don’t start drawing directly the clothes, hair, etc… there’s the possibility that you make more anatomy mistakes if you do that. Doing a sketch of the body without anything else will help you to place everything later.
Do I have to be very active? Nope! Not at all, come whenever you want and learn here.
Do assignments have deadlines They do not, please work and finish them whenever you'd like.
If you have any questions feel free to pm me or comment on the forum!
