I'm Knight Zhang, a long time participant in the online art community and a character concept artist for video games and entertainment! I've been drawing my whole life and have experienced the gamut of growing up as an artist, including all of the worst parts of having to figure it all out on your own. I've spent the better part of my life learning how to come to terms with all the ups an downs that come with improving and growing up, and I hope my experience can help anyone who's feeling particularly unsure about their future art career.
