How did you become an artist?


I have been drawing since I was a child but I started taking art more seriously at the age of 15. I mainly started with character art, but have since branched out to environments as well! I attended art school for 4 years, studying concept art for games and entertainment, and recently graduated this year. While in school, I was doing freelance illustration work and gaining experience on that front.





Where do you get inspiration?


I get a lot of inspiration from my favorite media, and I definitely find myself at my most creative when I’m consuming more media. I also make lots of fanart which helps a lot with inspiration. For creating original concepts, I really enjoy looking at fashion and nature.





What’s your hardware setup?


Right now I’m working on a PC setup with a Huion screen tablet that acts as a second monitor.





What do you like best about Clip Studio Paint?


I really love how the brushes feel for painting. I haven’t been able to replicate the feeling in another program. I also really appreciate the Clip Studio Assets store, since it is extremely streamlined and convenient to find exactly what I need and have it sent directly to my workspace.





How long does it take you to make a single illustration?


It depends on the type of illustration. For a fully painted and detailed illustration, it can go upwards of 20 hours. For mid level detail it can be around 8-12 hours. Quick messier drawings can take just a few hours.





Would you consider Clip Studio Paint an industry tool?


Definitely! I really appreciate that it supports PSD as well as many other formats. The new addition of being able to import Photoshop brushes is a huge help as well, as I am someone who often had to switch in between the two programs for school.
