Practice Makes Perfect: Secrets to Improvement
My name is Mint-tan, and I'm an illustrator based in Asia. I'm currently working in a game studio, but I also have experiences in freelancing and managing a merch store. I've been drawing since early childhood, but only started to pursue it as a career in art school.
For some time during art school, I was discouraged from drawing in manga style; due to the criticisms and discrimination it receives for being 'the easy way out'. However, these criticisms have encouraged me to pick up my pen and learn art fundamentals, shape my unique style in art that I have now, as well as training myself to have flexibility of styles in my work.
Therefore, if you are experiencing the same thing, or you are currently feeling stuck in your art, or you are interested to learn to create art (not necessarily manga style) but don't know where to start, or you just want to take an inside look of my illustration process, I'm here to guide you through this class and share my experiences in my own journey.
I'm looking forward to learning and improving together with all of you!
