Chibi Character Creation Online Art Course

Tutored by Monique Piscaer-Bailey

The Chibi Character Creation Art Course is a Diploma Course.

Do you have a love of Manga and everything kawaii? 

Would you love to learn how to create your own original Chibi characters from scratch? 

If you are jumping in your seat with excitement, this is the course for you! 

Chibi is a Japanese slang word describing something short. The term describes a style of caricature where characters are drawn in an exaggerated way. They are small and chubby, with large heads. 

The course is suitable for those working traditionally on paper, and students who prefer digital software. 

 Study at your own pace & unleash your own unique character niche. 


You will learn:

- Drawing fundamentals of both traditional and glossy Chibis. 

- How to draw each body part using basic geometric shapes. Those parts fit together like a puzzle, stage by stage. 

- To keep you characters proportional from head to toe. 

- Tricks to create your characters in any pose you can imagine. 

- How to draw clothes that appear three dimensional. 

- Basic colour techniques with pencil crayons or digital software. 

- How to create Chibi pets. 


 We can't wait to see what you will create!

Students are able to upload their artwork to the 'The Art Room' on our website. Each student is given a unique username and password on enrolment for their own private section in The Art Room.

Students can upload their artwork for the tutor to collect and critique. The tutor will then upload feedback for the student to download. If you do not have facilities to upload your artwork, you can mail your artwork to the tutors centre and receive your artwork back with your critique. It is essential you label all packages/artwork with your student number.

The Chibi courses is written to be complete in itself. However we realise that students may appreciate being able to get clarification about various things as they work through their programme as well wanting reassurance that they are putting techniques into practice effectively. The tutor provides the support to deal with relevant queries.

The Chibi course has its own dedicated Tutor - Monique Bailey. Monique keeps the course up to date and relevant to today's students. She is available to the individual student for advice and encouragement. The course has regular exercises and assignments that are constructed in such a way as to give the student the opportunity to practice the techniques learnt on the course and to test themselves as they go along. The student is encouraged to submit the assignment work to the college for the tutor to critique.

On many courses the assignment work may be suitable for inclusion in a student's Portfolio of Work that could be very useful later. The college will use the assignments submitted as the basis for any award of a letter, certificate or diploma.

If work is posted in it will be returned, although we do recommend using the online submission system.
