Hi I go by Rainbow Ichi / Ichidoodles010101 Let's see, I consider myself in between of hobbyist with a little bit on freelancing on the side now and then. I draw/doodle more for fun. I used to do a lot of digital art years back, but long story short a good friend of mine encouraged me to give watercolors another try ( watercolor had a bit of a uh...bad experience when I was younger ) and you know what? I enjoyed it. I've been playing with watercolor for more than 6 years now, and I love how gratifying it feels to finish a piece. So most of my recent works are in watercolor, and I still continue my journey in having fun with them. As to why I'm here, well I like...lurking and checking out art videos..for future studies when I have the free time. Nice to meet everyone ^_^ I lean towards anime-style stuff, my recent obsession are corgi and shiba dogs because of my plush animals - they are one of my sources of inspiration.

Nothing like a good intro thread. :) Hey there fellow artists, I'm Levi from Washington State. Mostly been a sketch artists these last few years as I've found myself coming back to a love of art and creating. A lot of my drawing and what painting I do comes from life or imagination and while I'm not 100% sure where I want to go artistically, be it a profession or something else, I do know I want to continue to get better, grow my range of subjects and mediums, and overall make sure that it's always a source of joy for me. That said, I'd love to start stepping my game up and doing more "Finished" work and start taking some of my ideas and creatures a bit further. Someday I'll get a scanner to start scanning things in from my sketchbook but here is a sampling of what I tend to post on instagram, which is where I put most of my work. :) Nice to meet you all.

Corie Krumnaker
Hey everyone! I love having a place to do introductions for us, so thank you for doing that. My name is Corie, and I’ve been drawing on and off since I was young. Over the years I’ve picked up and put down my drawing tools so many times, and I think that’s something a lot of people can relate to! So my hope and wish is to see where I can push my art if I stick to it for more than a few months at a time. Art as a whole has always captivated me, and more so the gaze/mind of the artist. So here’s some sketches I’ve done on and off over about three years, ordered from newest to oldest. Any thoughts/advice is always welcome. Nice meeting y’all!!

Kat
Hi! I'm Kat, and I'm 13, based in the USA. I've been drawing "seriously" for 2 years while trying to manage my school life as well XD. I looooove history and I like to draw my own characters as well. A lot of my art is based off of the movie "Amadeus", though I frequently draw characters from other movies/time periods/etc, such as French Revolution inspired pieces. I'm not the best at anatomy or color, and I hope to learn more from here before starting my webtoon. I try to make something every 1-3 days to keep my art grind. I hope to have fun with you all here! Edit: My art inspirations are PeanutMGN, Pilzpilzchen, Achooshi, and finnidis on instagram. I also like the color palettes of baroque paintings!

Marina Heinsohn
Hello, my name is Marina. I live on the east coast in the US and I'm working as sock designer and packaging designer, though a went to school for illustration. Most of my work involves very small pixels of animals, food and such (for the socks) and graphic design for packaging but what I really love to draw is people. Not sure if I'd try to do it as a career but I'd like to improve my anatomy and painting skills as I've neglected them quite a bit when I started my current job. Rendering and realistic art was never my strength but I won't give up because I still love trying them. Excited to be a part of an art community where I hope to learn and grow as an artists and meet new people.

Hi my name is Olga and I'm from Israel. I hope to learn from this community and maybe finally get that "classroom" feeling again. In the last 4 years, I created stylized characters, assets and backgrounds for slot machine games. At my free time I try to improve my fundamentals and finally work on some personal projects to find my true potential. It's really hard but I think I'm on the right path. Still not sure which world I belong - rpg fantasy or casual gaming. Nice to meet you all! :)

Graciela Hinojosa
Hi! My name is Graciela and I'm from Mexico. I've been looking for an online artist community for a while, and after hearing the announcement at the beginning of the week at Proko's channel, I'm glad I finally sign in. I'm looking forward to see everyone's work! I'm a designer at the moment, I love drawing, painting, bright colors, and contrast. Since I do a lot of advertise graphics in my day job, I'm used to work with vectors and I did my digital paintings like that for while, but this past year I've been trying to walk out of my comfort zone and improve my digital painting skills.   I would love to make art my full time job, still not sure what path to take, so for now I'm trying a little bit of everything to see what I like more. I feel kinda stuck at the moment in my art skills, so any critique to improve is highly appreciate it! These are a few of my studies/works from the last 2 years. Hope everyone have an amazing day! ♥

Ish Whatsittoya
Hi everyone! My name's Ish. I'm a dabbler, doodler, and been spinning my wheels in place with art for a handful of years. I love traditional mediums for the most part but have recently branched out into digital. Also have pumped the breaks on "just drawing" and have decided to actually get some form of legitimate education outside of free videos and watching others draw. My final, ultimate, unattainable goal is to do whatever art comes to me on a whim and somehow have that turn into a legitimate income. I also have aspirations for making my own comic (who doesn't?). Its about this past 14 months. I fell ill with a disease after getting hit with COV19 and have been struggling in every facet of life since. Financially, spiritually, artistically....grammatically. What saved my @$$ early on in my struggle is being able to make some money off of pet portrait commissions. Helped pay the bills and gave me purpose. I'm slowly getting better and crawling out of a hole with a brand new love of life and art and want to hit the ground running with it. Here's my stuff. Enjoy it. Or don't. Mwah

I think the best I could do is give advice, and the best advice I can give to younger artists is to keep a sketchbook and draw everything you can from life. This will help you as much as anything as far as improving your drawing ability, your observation skills, hand eye coordination, your mental library, your imagination.... I can't stress how useful it can be. :)

I'm 28 now, but one day I hope to quit my day job and do art as a full-time career. I'm glad I found this place because no one else in my life loves art like I do :D
