A note from Shubham

Hey there! I’m Shubham. I didn’t go to art school or anything, but I’ve taught myself a lot about art. I love telling stories through my drawings & videos, it’s not just about making something look nice. I get really excited about learning all the nitty-gritty stuff like colour theory, anatomy, proportions – you name it. It’s super cool to see how these things affect my art. As for mediums, I’m pretty much into everything. But if I had to pick, I’d say alcohol markers, pencil colours, acrylics, and watercolours are my go-to. I reckon if you’ve got your basics down, you can create awesome stuff with any medium. Art’s all about exploring and learning, right?
