Final impressions

Meet Your Creator
Hi, my name is Maximiliano Cabrera, but I'm better known as Paroro on social media!
I'm a freelance artist from Chile. I'm mostly self-taught and I've been working as freelance Digital Illustrator for about 5 or 6 years now after escaping traditional office jobs for good. I've been drawing anime-inspired works since I was a kid, and I've been going through this journey from creating comics, giving classroom lessons, selling at conventions, printing fanzines, doing art commissions, commercial work, building a social media audience, and more.
I always try to learn a little something myself so then I can teach others. I know there are lots of artists out there with a similar background and I get asked often about how I've managed to push forward and be where I am now, so I'll be happy to help.

This course will teach and guide you on how to effectively utilize different tools such as "digital brushes," "palettes," and "blending options" in Paint Tool SAI.
We will help you adjust app settings to optimize your drawing experience.
