Do you dream of someday becoming a professional manga artist or anime director? Of creating the next Attack on Titan, Sword Art Online or Sailor Moon? Manga University is here to help you bring that dream to life!

Over the past 12 years, the Manga University Home Study Course has taught thousands of students of all ages the fundamentals of drawing manga, and given them the rare opportunity have their artwork critiqued by professional Japanese manga artists!

No previous experience is required — we'll teach you what you need to know right from the beginning. The six-lesson course is designed to be done on an individual basis, and can be taken any time, anywhere.

TAKE THE FIRST STEP TOWARD MANGA STARDOM!

The Basic Course features six multi-page PDF lessons that can be viewed on any computer, tablet or smartphone. The lessons included in the Manga University Home Study Course are designed to be simple, fun and straightforward:

  • Lesson #1: Introductory lesson, featuring a brief history of manga.
  • Lesson #2: Studying other artists work, and copying it to learn how to draw your own original characters.
  • Lesson #3: Character design — creating your character's personality before drawing.
  • Lesson #4: Understanding body sizes and "head counts"
  • Lesson #5: Rough drafts and story design.
  • Lesson #6: An overview of the art critique, featuring a previous student's artwork and instructor's comments.

Each participant is also invited to submit one drawing to have it reviewed, critiqued and and redrawn by one of Manga University's professional manga artists. You will learn not only what you are doing right, but what you can do to improve your drawing and take it to the next level!
