Hi I'm Nachoz, and I like drawing cute girls. I'm a self-taught freelance illustrator and character designer and I've been in the industry for about 7 years drawing nothing but cute girls. I've done artwork for a handful of games such as Danmaku!!, War of Zodiac, and Crush Crush. I have also previously made illustrations for a how-to-draw-anime art instructional books, and a couple of children's books as well. I love giving art advice and encouraging developing artists to achieve their dreams. I hope my small contribution of the knowledge and experience I've accumulated over the years will connect to an emerging artist.
