Interview with
Joonhyung Ahn

배경 이미지
Which student do you recommend taking this class?

It is suited for beginners who are just starting and intermediates who want to improve their skills. It is also recommended to people who cannot draw in 3D, have difficulties drawing without an example, have not been improving for a long time, have a deficiency in the basics, and want to learn digital tools and drawing at the same time.

What is one aspect of drawing that beginners struggle the most with?

The most difficult aspect for beginners is getting good-quality lines and making exact observations. Even after observation, it is difficult to draw it in the right form. In this class, you will be learning both 2D and 3D measuring techniques to develop your senses. You will also learn the essential skills of perspective, all the efficient tools, and tips that I have acquired through my years of experience.

What is the essential point that you want the students to obtain through this class?

I want students to have fun and gain confidence in accurate perspective and drawing. Basically, while understanding how the perspective technique was created through the human field of view and the camera lens, you can learn in-depth and accurate perspectives to create interesting results by mobilizing various themes and your imagination. If you develop a solid sense of shape through basic skills, you will naturally gain confidence.

What must be done along with the class for a faster level-up?

First of all, there is a point that you have to stick to the basics, which are the core of the class. It takes a huge amount of practice. It's not just one drawing and it's over, you have to draw at least 5 or more. It is also important to get into the habit of always morphologically analyzing the objects around you. If you practice constantly with the belief that painting is honestly proportional to the amount of practice, you will eventually see a leveled-up picture.
