Meet Your Creator

Hello everyone!

I'm Karen or also known as Chii from @cremechii on Instagram. I'm a recent early childhood educator graduate and about to start my career later this year to teach young children with special needs and disabilities.

Aside from that journey, I also love drawing! I started digital art in 2012 where I primarily posted on a deviantART account. Since then my adventure has taken many turns and a very long break until recently in September 2020 where I decided to start an Instagram account with my new simple art style. I've grown quite fast in these last few months by applying previous knowledge from posting online and engaging actively in the art community. I'd love to share both my drawing and growth knowledge with you guys and hopefully put a smile on someone's face everyday with my art :)

This course will teach and guide you on how to effectively utilize different tools such as "digital brushes," "palettes," and "blending options" in Procreate app.
We will help you adjust app settings to optimize your drawing experience.

*Please Note: Students will have to purchase Procreate application ($10 in Apple Store). It is not included in the course package.

  • People who want to learn a basic coloring
  • People who want to learn and apply digital drawing skills
  • People who want to learn designing characters from A to Z
  • People who want to add colors and values to improve their drawing
  • People who want to begin their shops on Kickstarter or other social channels
