I had a phone from Manga School Nakano on 31st Oct, one day before the class. He said if I could come to the school and have a class on 1st Nov. Just happened to I could and I went, fortunately.
She came to the school and asked if she could have a class tomorrow because she saw the school's FB page which I made. (^_^) It was same with the others, but she was the first one who visited the school directly!
The student was a young women from Australia, during her sightseeing.
Although she was interested in manga, she didn't draw manga/ manga-like-drawing. She wanted to try drawing manga-like character.
I suggested to her drawing chibi. Drawing chibi is easier, compare with serious manga character. (It's difficult as well serious drawing f you did it in serious, but it's a good one for beginner)
They are her work during the class. I k
now from my experience, it is very difficult drawing manga-style characters (especially chibi. It is a kind of contradiction, but if you drew manga style character well, drawing chibi is different matter. I've sometimes found some - sort of awkwardness - from chibi drawings by people from West. It's funny thing, but east Asian people have a big advantage of it)
She didn't used to draw manga-like character, so it wasn't easy. Yet, she work hard and done very good job!!

It's my 4koma (comic strip) which are collected from this blog with some columns. You can read all of them here, but having them as a book is not bad idea I think! It's free, anyway. ;)
