Meet Your Creator

 
Hello!

I'm Yuette, also known as Silyue/OneiricBlue. Having grown up with a childhood passion for drawing anime and fantasy characters, I currently work as a freelance concept artist and illustrator. I initially started out as a hobbyist posting original character art, but now with over 8 years of character design experience, I actively sell my designs online as "adoptables" and continue to create new concepts to cater for the interests of our art community. Over these years, I've been asked to offer my advice and opinions on various original concepts and designs, so I'm really honoured to finally be able to open a course which addresses the process and knowledge of character design from square one!
