Meet Your Creator
Hey there!
I'm Cain and I've always had a passion for drawing. I would draw characters from shows I liked or make my own stories and illustrate them ever since I was little. I started posting my art online late 2016 and ever since then I've been focusing on making eye-catching character illustrations. I'm a self-taught artist and figured out a lot of tips and techniques along the way. I hope I can share them with you and you'll be able to start off with some things I wish I had known when I was first drawing!
