Illustration Class

2 hours Class size 1 to 6 label $70 or 4 payments of $17.50 Afterpay

If you actively would like to improve your artistic skill and senses, develop your creative eye or are hoping to work in the creative industry, my classes would be suited for you.

I have worked both in traditional and digital forms, depending on where your skill is at I can guide you to push your artworks and strengthen your art base.
If you are working on some artworks, please bring them along, and I'll provide exercises that will strengthen your art foundations.

For more structured approach:
I usually run by half the lesson focusing on foundation (sketching, anatomy, basic colour, simplification etc) and the other half more focusing on working on illustration and composition

For standalone to 2 classes :
If you are looking for a short class to complete an artwork such as portrait or a gift illustration, please bring references as well, and we can work to achieve a finished illustration

For digital artists / remote:
I can schedule fortnightly online classes with exercises and review of your art that you have sent or working on, and more based on lecture/demonstration and ways to develop your art through video recordings.

Knowledge Required
What to bring
Sketchbook, your artworks, pencils or pens. If you prefer to work digitally, please bring your relevant equipment, tablet and files.

Hello! I am Sydney based illustrator. Most commonly known on my online artist alias "Miyukiko"
For me, art is a way to express, communicate and inspire. Bringing a smile, captivating and moving others with my art is something I find joy in.

Although I am best known for my anime and manga illustration works, I draw a range of illustrations I adapt to different art approaches depending on what I want to portray to bring an illustration to its potential.

My career experiences include a variety of illustration work ranging from storyboarding and portraits, comics, novel covers, promotional works, tattoo designs and apparel, to game artwork and animation.
I also work as a university lecturer and tutor for game illustration/assets and animation.

I enjoy holding workshops, mentoring, teaching and encouraging others to pursue what they truly enjoy!

Excellent! I learned and practiced many things that for long time I struggled in at that part, and she teaches me with very well explained theories and gave me examples, and that's made me understand. Very friendly and comfortable course

Kenny Beer • Jan 2020

The class with Fiona was brilliant. She spent time to understand exactly what my needs and interests were and what styles I wanted to draw.

Her teaching style is open and friendly. She gives a good grounding in theory, with examples and exercises to help get techniques right. I’d thoroughly recommend this class to aspiring illustrators.

My son was very happy after his class, Fiona helped him with several concepts. He is keen to go for another lesson now.

Fiona is really amazing and she taught us tips and tricks. What I really like is that she also explained the reasons on why things are drawn that way and many more. Would definitely recommend.

Fiona was very friendly and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was laid back and comfortable and just within 2 hours, she helped me to become a lot more confident in my ability and taught me so many simple but effective techniques to enhance my work.

Fiona was incredibly welcoming and friendly, made me feel comfortable right off the bat. She was also very understanding of the issues I had with my own work and provided insight on where I should begin to improve. Looking forward to booking another class in the future ! :)
