06/06/2024 Stones and Rocks Workshop

Konnichiwa everyone!

A new workshop has been published on the Workshops page. This time, it’s about how to color stones and rocks, such as how to shade, draw, and color them. I quite frequently get amazed by how awesome cel shading is. If you truly think about it, cel shading truly lasts and ages well. Something that looked great 10 years ago looks great today. Also making a quick announcement that for a few weeks from now, things will be quieter, but worry not, awesome things are coming and just around the corner.

Until next time!

05/06/2024 Announcements Moving To The Membership Site

Konnichiwa everyone!

As mentioned before, June and July will likely be slightly quieter months from me. I do apologize for that already in advance. New art tutorials, as well as workshops, will be published and quite soon, too. I will also make some adjustments to the Discord server just to make it more streamlined and easier to use, etc. I’ve seen so many servers that have 20+ channels, and then only one (or max 3) is actually being used. So, a few changes are coming to Discord, and one thing that I will be implementing soon is an announcements section for the membership site. So, future announcements will be made directly on the site. Then, you have only a few reasons to come to Discord.

Side note: the latest drawing has (yet again) a split-complementary color scheme. It seems I like those the most. Also, I LOVE COLORS. I dunno why, but daaamn, colors are awesome.

But yeah, until next time…which is pretty soon anyway.

01/06/2024 New Pricing Model Launched

Konnichiwa everyone!

I have some super awesome news to share! I was able to change the membership price to $9. I know the change isn’t super huge, but it was something I wanted to do, and now I was able to do that. Thank you again for the awesome support, everyone!

While announcing the change, I also want to announce a new “module” I’m planning. It’s called training, and while it’s the name I’m only sharing, I can’t wait to get on with it. I’m also building the anime art fundamentals further, so there’s a lot in store for you all. However, things take time, so do bear with me. And with that! Have an awesome weekend…and also don’t forget to check a new section called Newsletters in the dashboard. That’s all, have fun everyone!

Oh, and the new price will be starting on July 2, 2024, for existing members.

21/05/2024 Color Fundamentals Launched

Hey everyone!

Today marks the day of launching the color fundamentals lessons to you all. It’s been quite a ride but now the lessons are done and ready for you to enjoy and learn from. There are some seriously interesting concepts and things to learn.

There’s roughly 1h of video content about colors and I sincerely hope you will learn a lot and get confident with colors.

17/05/2024 New Membership Site Launched on Okuha.com

Hello! @everyone Surprise surprise, but I think the membership site is ready for you to experience! There are now NEW brushes for you to download, and I think they might very well be the last line of foundational brushes (maybe). The brushes have been named to what they represent and at what stage/phase they should be used. I will highly likely add more effect brushes to the pack in the future, as those will be needed for background drawing. However, the new site is ready for you to experience as of right now.

Just head over to https://okuha.com/dashboard/ to get started. Remember that as you are a member, all you need to do is do the same thing you did when you first became a member. Refresh and allow access; everything should be good! I can see from the backend if you were able to get inside the membership or not. If something arises just send me a message via Discord, contact@okuha.com, or through Patreon. I will reply and help you if there are any problems.

When I see you all have gotten access to the new site, I will delete the old one and keep updating the new one only. Oh, and by the way, there’s also a new structure in the new site, and I hope it makes sense and is easier to use and especially faster.

The only thing that will be hard to transfer is the previous WIP posts. But I plan on bringing them to the new site gradually but slowly. Also the foundational techniques guide is served as a download file.

All this being said, ENJOY the new site and how things are presented and provided to you. I hope you have a pleasant time. Have a lovely weekend, everyone, and let’s create awesome anime art.



Digital Artist

I’m a digital artist who is passionate about anime and manga art. My true artist journey pretty much started with CTRL+Z. When I experienced that and the limitless color choices and the number of tools I could use with art software, I was sold. Drawing digital anime art is the thing that makes me happy among eating cheeseburgers in between veggie meals.
