About the Instructor
My name is Mumemomo, a watercolor illustrator and character designer. I started to draw and color my original characters just because of my love for these styles of drawings and my passion for drawing like the artists I loved. As a self-taught artist, I had to figure out all the Dos and Don'ts by myself. During this course, I want to share what I had learned as an illustrator and watercolor artist. Also, I want you to enjoy the charm of analog mediums of drawing and coloring. This is something that I am passionate about, and I truly hope you can take part in this journey.
Q: How did you first start doing what you do?
I have always liked the Manga illustrations since I was young. I started to draw the well-known characters I loved, and soon I wanted to design my original characters. It started with finding a way to get the spark and the inspiration to create a character with its own personality. Then, adding the atmosphere and vibe that would make my illustration unique. I just wanted to find a way to make my work different and special from any other character designers'. For me, it was watercolor. I think watercolor suited me very well with its textures and its distinct characteristics of blending and spreading.
