For a good 4 days, C spent 3 hours each morning learning how to draw manga. Her takeaway from the class - she knew that there was a great focus on the facial expressions of the characters, she learned that light and shading gives the characters different looks and dimensions. Oh, the eyes, she learned to draw soulful, expressive, and sparkling big eyes.
These pictures were taken by Teacher Vernon - he was the one who taught the class.
She enjoyed herself immensely and even though she had to wake up at 7 am each day to get ready for the 1.5 hours of peak-hour traveling, she took it in her stride. I guess, we call that passion. :)
