Illustrator Zipcy


Hello! I am Zipcy, an illustrator with 722K followers on Instagram. It has been 10 years since I started working as a freelance illustrator with the purpose of doing everything I can with painting. I have been working as an adult art instructor for 5 years. I’ve done a variety of things, including publishing magazines, advertising, games, movies, album covers, posters, corporate collaborations, etc.

Since I was a child, I loved drawing cartoon characters, so I pursued a career in cartoon animation, but I soon realized that it wasn’t for me. I realized that there was more to cartoons than just drawing; creating a story was important. It was hard for me to admit that it wasn’t the career for me. I loved cartoons as a child, I thought I was good, and it was because I had never considered doing anything other than becoming a cartoonist. I had to consider what else I wanted to do.

I was working at a bookstore when I came across novels with beautiful illustrations on the front cover. It was fascinating to think that the whole message of the book could be conveyed through just one scene, and I decided that it was something I wanted to try. That is how I started my first steps as an illustrator.

“Touch” is an illustration based on “Skinship,” which has been published in over 100 stores in 2017-2018. It was loved at home and abroad and was published in November last year. It is being sold on online bookstores nationwide.

I gained recognition through this work. The 10 years of relentless work was somewhat long, but I was able to build solid experiences and internal skills and gained recognition after 7-8 years.

I usually enjoy drawing characters. You can design different impressions according to each element of the neck, including the angle and length of the eyebrows, the shape of the tail, the weight of the eyelids, and the shape of the lips.

For the most part, I have heard that the characters in my paintings are "realistic, mysterious and attractive." I have been asked a lot about how to draw such a face without looking at it. I think that it means that people who see my illustrations also see the character I brought to life.

I’ve created a class that covers how to draw the basic front-facing portraits.

  • Struggle to draw people
  • Want to draw realistic and captivating facial features
  • Know how to draw people, but feel like they’re lacking somehow
  • Want quick ways to draw portraits
