Rojo's Profile & Portfolio



Hi, I'm illustrator Rojo.
While working as a freelance concept artist,
I am juggling multiple tasks and
offline lecture activities.

My goal is to organize what's necessary
for a better picture and encourage you
to solve it yourself.

I prepared a simple and enjoyable curriculum
to help you learn as much as possible
about light and color.

Through my lecture, I hope to inspire more people
to experiment with light, color, and digital drawing.

This is a class you won't regret taking. You will be able to upgrade your skills while being filled in on some of the background knowledge you might be missing.

Student B

It's a good lecture for beginners, as it covers the fundamentals of perspective, composition, and color, as well as how to apply them. In particular, I liked how she suggests specific training methods so that you can study alone. The various methods that I learned in the lecture helped me fix my drawings more efficiently.

Student C

There's a lot of knowledge that comes along with the class as the instructor shares what they learned from years of working experience. The class provides systematic solutions to composition issues that were very helpful in terms of learning and producing work as quickly as possible. Where I faced unforeseen diffcutlies or obstacles, the instructor placed extra tips that helped me continue moving forward.

Background Images
Who are the target audiences
for this class?

I think my target audiences would be those who communicate with images on social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter, those who want to express light and color in an appealing way, and those who have difficulty seeing the image. I am confident that my class will make drawing easier and more enjoyable.

What are your strengths
as an illustrator?

My strength is that I don't take a long time to complete a task. The initial work speeds up dramatically as you recognize the basic shades, borders, and coloring for background illustrations, as well as the rough composition. You'll learn a range of strategies from my daily work routine in this class. In addition, I will provide various resources, brushes, sketch samples, and coloring guide PSD files.

What tips can the students get
from the class?

As we aim to repeat learning in numerous ways through configuration, value, perspective, and color consecutively, our capacity to notice and judge pictures will vastly improve. You can also have a positive painting experience because accurate theory and purpose produce measurable results.
