Congratulations on Completing the Course
I'm Yuelight, but you can call me Yue for short! I'm a Vietnamese self-taught artist who will be going to college soon. I've drawn for as long as I can remember, but got more serious about it in middle school.
After years of experimenting, learning from other artists and periodically breaking out of my comfort zone, I've managed to develop a style that I can be happy with and which allows me to comfortably experiment with things that I want to do.
I'm very thankful to have this opportunity to share what I've learnt with everyone!
