Hello there!
I am Krystaki, but you can call me Krys, and I am currently a university student. I am a self-taught, freelance illustrator who resides in Canada. Growing up, I loved drawing as a hobby and I decided to get serious about it. After years of experimenting, I realized that I enjoyed drawing original characters and fashion in general. With this knowledge, I decided to expand on my understanding in this field and I am confident I can share this knowledge with others as this is something people seemed to love! I love teaching and helping others, especially if it is in my field of interest. One thing I struggled with most was developing a style, but I was able to address these issues and I hope to share these issues to help others. I am thankful to have this opportunity!

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.
