Tutorials

Welcome to my tutorials page

Please note that everything I write here is how I've learned to draw over my journey. It's very possible that are mistakes here and there. Sometimes mistakes are a part of style, sometimes they're just things you don't notice as you go. To me learning is a personal journey, I love to find out about things myself. You could say that it's the part of drawing which makes it fun for me myself, while in other aspects I usually seek to affect and get reactions out of other people. Because of this I ask you to not send me critique of my personal styles, but if you find a mistake about how a program works or a really bad typo / sentence that doesn't make sense - do tell me about that!

With all that in mind, remember to make your own learning journey and be most free to do things how they work best for you! But I hope these little tutorials I write will help you forward, motivate or whatever they might do!

If you'd like to see a specific tutorial in the future, feel free to message me and suggest!
