Tools

I’ve started drawing back in 2016 when I bought a Surface Pro 2 to make some vector art in Adobe Illustrator. Then, after some hesitation, I bought a wonderful Cintiq 13″, which changed my life. As of 2018 I’ve been mostly using this to make art. I have a sketchbook of course, but I mostly do practices or doodles in it.

My main program is Adobe Photoshop. I use multiple plugins :

I also have a lot of brushes, but the main ones I use are from Michelle Czajkowski (author of Ava’s Demon) and Kyle Webster Brush Megapack.

In 2018 I also bought an iPad 5th generation with an Apple Pen. I use Procreate with it, and mostly use it when I am out of my home or while slouching on my couch.

 

Career Smirking Raven

Career

I’ve studied in Multimedia in College, where I learned to use a whole arsenal of software for video, programming, design, etc. When done with my studies, I’ve worked as a web programmer. In 2016, I connected with one of my old passion: drawing.

Since then, I haven’t stopped learning and improving in my drawing, mostly by myself and with the help of all those wonderful artists on the internet who share what they do.

As of 2018, I will be starting animation classes at Cégep du Vieux Montréal.
