About Chaesu


I'm Chaesu, a self-taught illustrator that specializes in anime-style female characters.

Due to my red-green colorblindness, I spent the majority of my life assuming that I could never excel in visual art despite my love for anime and illustrated works. It wasn't until late 2018 that I found the motivation and determination to try and learn how to draw despite my condition and lack of any kind of formal training.

For three years, I have dedicated my time and focus to the study and practice of character illustration, and have been able to improve my skills as an artist and express myself through the illustrations of my original character.
