Hello all! I'm Pluvias, a self-taught anime artist.
I've been drawing since I could first hold a pencil, but I started taking it seriously in 2009, which was the year I started doing digital art with a drawing tablet, and since then I've kept striving to improve my level. I also draw every now and then on paper using Copic Markers.
If you like my content and want more, you can watch free tutorials on my YouTube channel, in addition to lots of drawing process videos and useful information for anime artists.
