I'm Pluvias, a full-time webtoon artist and content creator.
I've been inspired by anime since my childhood days it's the main reason I started drawing.
And as I grew up, without much thought, I was creating lots of characters and stories in my head, dreaming of seeing them come true one day. Yet, while I've been practicing digital art for 13 years, I kept thinking that drawing a comic is too much work and that there's no way for me to do that, so I kept pushing that dream aside, doing random artworks and illustrations, until I reached a point where I was barely inspired to do any single artwork.
I would stare at the blank canvas for a long time not knowing what to draw. That's when I remembered my actual dream that I set aside for years; I have characters and stories waiting for me to embrace! And hence, I decided to delve into the colorful world of webtoons and start my journey.
And you guys, since then, I no longer stare at blank canvases. I've been hardly holding myself back from drawing too much! That is the power of pursuing your passion! I want to deliver those techniques I've learned to you as well because I can safely assume that as you're reading these lines, your heart is wavering with excitement to make your dream story real too! I want to let you know that no matter your skill, there's always room for improvement.
So don't let self-doubt stand in your way and get going, you can do it too! As I created online courses and countless tutorials that were well-received and inspired many, I am hopeful that I can deliver what I've learned clearly to you to help you kickstart your comic journey
