Hello, My name is Mon~!
I’m a Middle Eastern artist currently studying Games Development in Australia. I’m a fully self-taught and hobbyist artist for almost 6 years now. I always had a passion for telling stories, and I found my happiness in creating my own original characters who thrive to express themselves and tell their own stories. If you know me, you know that I’m just a big lover of original characters and the artists themselves! I really wish for more people to dive into this awesome world that you are fully in control of yourself, and get in that zone where you just cannot stop drawing your own characters and having fun with them! like most artists, I’ve have my ups and downs and learned many things the hard way, so hopefully I can guide you to an easier and more enjoyable road to fully loving your own art and characters! So don’t be scared, take my hand~ ( •̀ᴗ•́ )و ̑̑
