Meet Your Creator
Hello my name is Ariru! I am a university student who has been drawing since I was little. I am self taught, and I started off as a traditional artist with copics and then. moved into digital art in the last 4 years using my ipad pro. At first, I started posting my art onto instagram and twitter and now I have currently I have moved into streaming as a vtuber to show my art process! Art has always been a way for me to express my creative desires and a way to relax. Being able to bring my imagination to a visual form that can be shared with others has brought me so much joy and wonderful friendships. It's a wonderful skill that I appreciate having developed because it has given me a comfy place to be in and so many aspirations and goals. I hope that this class will do the same for you and I look forward to meeting you all!
