If you’ve always wanted to create esports-themed fanart of your favourite champions and heroes, but can’t draw to save your life – look no further than Rachta Lin’s new drawing series.
Introducing “ARTFULLY SIMPLE”
The full-time artist – who shared with us her love for Overwatch last month – has revamped her Patreon to provide a series of 1-minute long modular, step by step videos to guide hobbyists and budding artists alike in their artistic journey. Each video uses simple art materials like those shown below, and focuses on quick drawings that can be done in a day.
She debuted her series with a guide on drawing a quick D. Va from scratch.
Want A More Comprehensive Guide?
Videos will be released every two weeks across her social media platforms, but wait! There’s more for Patrons. If you’re in the Tier 3 Artist Tier on Rachta’s Patreon, you’ll receive a Patron-only version of these videos, where Rachta offers a more comprehensive guide, as well as a copy of the line art so that you can begin colouring straightaway.
The first official term starts on September 1st. Here’s a quick guide by Rachta on getting these Patreon-only rewards:
Why ARTFULLY SIMPLE?
When Rachta Lin was growing up, she found no guidance for her passion in the arts. Looking back, she wished someone would guide her through the early years of her craft.
Fast-forward several years later, she is now a full-time artist with a following in the fanart and doujin circle – and her fans now wish for the same thing: guidance in their own artistic journey.
ARTFULLY SIMPLE is her answer to them, and a fulfilment of her own wish.
