I am a self taught digital artist and have worked on this and as a freelancer for over eight years now. Passionate about learning, through the years have explored and used multiple softwares (Photoshop, Blender, Affinity Designer, After Effects among others). However, found in Illustrator -my very first one- my favourite tool, so that is the one I stick to.
From the different techniques and styles it allows to develop, if I had to choose one that would be cross hatching, maybe because such complex graphic work offers quite a challenge only exceeded by the awe of the final result.
If there is anything I can help you with, let’s talk. Communications (asking questions and clearing all doubts) are as crucial as understanding your needs here.
