My name is Melissa. I am a hobbyist digital artist who’s crazy about character design. I have a degree in Business Computer Technology with a preference for software but I’m hoping to move into desktop publishing and being an author. I mainly use manga art but I also love fantasy art, manwha and fine art styles.
I decided to begin my streams because I’ve seen a lot of sources that tell you how to visually develop a character but they seemed superficial. That’s why I wanted to show that there’s a way to develop a well rounded character and that you need to tie in the intangible elements with the visual ones to create a character with impact. My main goal is not to teach people how-to-draw but to teach people how to truly create.
I’ll be using a lot of different programs,styles, and approaches to character design because mainly I want people to create their own processes for creating great characters. Characters and their quality can really impact a creative project and I hope I can help people learn to truly bring characters to life.
