Interview: Mitsufumi Obara
What makes lectures held by creators so attractive? We tried it out!
The main charm of FANBOX is that you can receive personal help from the creators themselves. It's a rare chance to find out more about the techniques and tips your favorite creators have for you. Without further ado, let's check it out.
Learn detailed color pencil techniques! Ryota Hayashi's FANBOX - Tokyo Sketch
In addition to tutorials of his new work, he may be analyzing his old work as well!
My latest illustration tutorial features the process from after the completion of the draft. Adding on to that, I have a recommended question corner. You can ask anything you want to if you couldn't catch something in the tutorial, and it'll be a Q&A section.
Illustrations are easy to enjoy but hard to start drawing yourself. There're many of us who give up because of the steep learning curve. However, if there's someone you can imitate and receive advice from, your skill level is sure to increase sharply.
Packed with techniques in the game industry! lack's FANBOX - The Den of a Coffee Gentleman
Apart from illustration techniques, he also told us more about the unique points of card game illustrations, such as the difference between rare and common (normal) card illustrations. Reading his interview may revive memories of your childhood days.
Apart from art techniques, lack also advised us on things to take note of when in the game industry. He also plans to talk about job hunting, and other topics like the future requirements to be an illustrator. These are all valuable gems you want to keep if you're interested in this line of work.
Also, you might have already noticed, but isn't FANBOX a little too grand.....? Even without any prior experience, you can learn at your own pace, or even just sit back and enjoy the uploads. (It'd be great if you could use it before the official release...)
Not only that! Introducing pixivFANBOX creators that focus on lectures and Q&As!
mocha's FANBOX - Cotton
- Illustrator specializing in game and anime backgrounds. In addition to the fantasy-like backgrounds, school scenes and Japanese-style rooms, mocha is also selling a large range of work at the BOOTH. Most of her uploads on FANBOX showcase corrections for background illustrations.
Houtengeki's FANBOX - Korou-kan
The best thing about it is that you can request for previous characters he has drawn to be in a specific pose or outfit. It's your opportunity to learn how to draw female characters, or difficult positions, or simply for the male fans to bask in....!
Ryota Hayashi's FANBOX - Tokyo Sketch
He summarizes the main points through his lecture reports, making it easy for beginners to follow. He takes questions from participants as well, and is just the right thing for people who want to polish their skills.
