About the Instructor


Hello! My name is Dani, and I am a freelance illustrator and character designer! I have been creating art my entire life and studied drawing and design in college. After working as both a traditional artist and a digital designer, I began to combine these two passions and started creating digital illustrations. What I learned in my past experiences studying art in school and working as a designer contributed to developing my skills as an illustrator and character designer.

I have always had a passion for creating characters that grab the attention of people and make them want to know more about that character’s story. Luckily, as a freelance illustrator and character designer I get to do just that, and I would love to share what I have learned with anyone who has that interest too!

Q: How did you first start doing what you do?

I started drawing at a young age. I have always had a fascination with people and faces, so as an artists I usually created portraits. Growing up and while attending school, I always drew people and characters using traditional mediums, such as pen or pencil. Once the Procreate application was released and I illustrated using it for the first time, I was immediately hooked on digital illustration! I love the possibilities that digital creation provides an artist, and once I had these tools available to me in Procreate, my passion for illustration continued to grow until it turned into the freelance career that I have today!
