Time to Draw Your Own Character!
I'm Lucinelle and I run a speed painting channel on YouTube.
Unlike most of the YouTube videos that only show general, simplified workflow, I try to explain the actual drawing process and share my tips and know-hows.
I usually use SAI Tool, but since the tool itself is quite compatible, my tips would also be helpful for those who want to use other tools or materials.
I'm pretty much self-taught when it comes to illustration. I hope I can share useful know-hows for those of you learning illustration on your own.
