Chibi characters have captured the hearts of many art enthusiasts around the world with their adorable and exaggerated features. Derived from the Japanese word “chibi,” meaning “short” or “small,” Chibi characters are stylised and cute renditions of people, animals, and even inanimate objects. These characters typically have big heads, large eyes, and tiny bodies, which contribute to their endearing charm.
Our Chibi course is designed to help aspiring artists develop their skills in creating these lovable characters. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced artist looking to expand your style repertoire, this course provides a comprehensive exploration of Chibi art.
Throughout the course, you will learn the fundamental techniques of drawing Chibi characters, including their unique proportions, expressive facial features, and distinctive body poses.
