How did you become an artist?

Art has always been a part of me since I was born. I started drawing before I could even walk, it's who I am and what I need to do to be happy. I started posting my art on social media and, eventually, people started asking me for commissions. Thanks to that I now can say I'm a sustainable full time freelance artist.

Where do you get inspiration?

I feel inspired just scrolling through social media, seeing my favorite artist's work. What I always do when I need a little "inspirational push" is Pinterest. Usually I enjoy looking at Pinup art and fantasy related illustrations.

What’s your hardware setup?

For work, I use two monitors and a HUION tablet. When I want to just sketch a little bit, I use my iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil.

What do you like best about Clip Studio Paint?

For me, it's the brushes and the Clip Studio Assets page. Clip Studio Paint has an amazing range of brushes that work so perfectly smooth. Also their Assets Page is a true fantasy, being able to download such a huge range of brushes, textures and poses makes drawing so much more interesting.



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

It really depends on the drawing, it can go from 12 hours to a week. Maybe 10 hours is the fastest I can get something done if it doesn't have much details.

How has Clip Studio Paint improved your workflow?

Clip Studio itself it's a very intuitive software to use. Everything is easy and fast, so it really makes it easy to work smoothly. Also, as I said, having this huge range of brushes and textures makes it even smoother.

Where can we follow your work?
