1. Congratulations on Completing the Course!
I go by tfvkne, but you can call me Tiffany! I'm 20, and am currently a student full time. I've drawn since childhood, and taken art seriously when I received my first and only Wacom Bamboo tablet at 12. I've recently started drawing again this year, and have worked on a few prints for voice actors.
I'll share with you my workflow and how I stay motivated to start and finish an illustration. I hope this course will help you gain a better understanding on what you want to achieve!
