The Manga University Home Study Course is designed for students of all ages who want to learn the fundamentals of drawing manga, and have their artwork critiqued by a professional Japanese manga artist! This six-week class is done on an individual basis, and can be taken any time, anywhere. Best of all, it starts at only $39.99!

Once a week for six weeks, students will complete a multipage, printable PDF featuring a lesson plan developed by Manga University instructors to teach the basics of manga drawing techniques and character design.

Midway through the course, each student will be invited to submit one of their drawings to have it reviewed — 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!
