Hi, I'm KETO, a freelance illustrator and instructor.
Drawing is a field that's easy and fun to get into, but it's also full of stress and prone to artist blocks and plateaus. However, if you build your skills via a wide-spread foundation of art theories, your artistry will know no bounds, no matter what external pressures may come your way.
Through this class, which incorporates all the insights and expertise I've gained working as a concept artist for major gaming companies, I will teach you how to infuse your characters with your own unique style and elevate your drawing skills to the next level, as long as you’re ready for the work involved.
