Meet Your Creator
Hey there!
I'm Eikyrona, but you guys can call me Eik! I'm a full-time graphic designer who moonlights as a freelance artist on the side. I've always loved creating art since I was a child, and there is absolutely nothing that can make me more energised than the times where I can sit down and express myself through drawing.
Everyday, I'm always craving new ways to improve my art style, but sometimes I would just feel stagnated—completely lost about how I could develop my technique and art style further. So this course was created especially to help others who might be lost on their way; those who need a guiding hand and a little push to reach their full potential!
I'm ecstatic to have an opportunity to share my artistic journey with everyone, and look forward to meeting all of you soon!
