Hello! My name is Rilei, also known as draculove on social media, and I am a freelance illustrator and graphic designer! I have been studying art and graphic design all my life, and have several years of experience using all types of programs such as Photoshop, Adobe Flash, and the majority of other Adobe Creative Suite programs, as well as various other programs throughout the years. I also have been creating new concepts and characters for 10+ years, and have been creating comics, illustrations, animatics, and storyboards with them for the same amount of time. In addition, I currently have a self-run art shop on Etsy that has been in operation since early 2020, where I create my own designs, print, and ship them to clients that want custom merchandise of their original characters. My biggest goal in life is to use my art to make other people happy, and to work with a strong team to make that happen. If I could have any job in the art industry, I would like to be a character designer, concept artist, or storyboard artist!Email: [email protected]
