Expert Illustrator
Rinotuna's Profile & Portfolio


I am illustrator Rinotuna.

I am currently teaching Human body
drawing/Illustration classes in Arteum Academy,
as well as working as a character designer
who creates characters with different concepts
in social media and several game projects.

I believe that people who draw
will inevitably want to create
their own characters at some point in their lives.
And I often saw people who were upset
when the results came in lower than expected.

We will learn about the process of character design
from observation to completion in this class,
and we will help you feel more confident
so that the challenges of character design
feel more liberating and exciting.

What are your intentions of planning
this course?

The goal of this class is to complete an original, satisfactory character design. I'd like to explain the broad process of making a character that people can sympathize with, and come by with a story within the character's props and silhouette beyond simply drawing a great character. I will explain in detail based on my skills and technique learned from actual illustration work, so you'd be able to create higher quality work.

Which point differentiates this course
from others?

I believe it's the ability to tolerate various tastes and genres, and then reinterpreting them into one's own style. When you're designing different characters, I believe one has an advantage when he/she has widespread interests. I too have discovered different charms from surrounding objects, animals, and plants, and then sympathized with the tastes of people around me. That has led me to get inspired from much more places. Through this class, I want my students to have the eyes that observe the world, and grow one's curiosity as an artist as well.

What can students gain
from this course?

Students can gain overall skills in character design, where you can check for yourself room for improvement, and make the illustration better. As you study you will have moments when you'll have to depend on feelings, such as design and color. If you lack certainty here, your artwork will only seem passive. It is necessary to have experience from lots of work and intense theoretical lessons to develop your artwork in your desired direction, and that's exactly what I want you to gain from this class.
