Meet Your Creator



Hi! My name is Mie Ruistuen, an artist from Norway. Currently I'm majoring in art, design and architecture. I've been drawing since I was able to hold a pencil. I've managed to build up my art skills through years of practice and picking up art theory from tons of different artists. I'm specialized within semi-realism. I have great interest in dungeons and dragons and draw a lot of inspiration from both player and npc character. Having build an online audience I often get asked how I make my art. I'm glad I have the opportunity to share my insights on this platform.

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.
