- About -

My name is Xanthe and I'm a 22 year old female freelance artist from the South West of England. I've been dabbling in digital art since 2013, with a primary focus on realistic portraiture and character design. I am constantly evolving my artistic style, using a variety of mediums as well as digital, and am very passionate about the ways in which art can be used as a way to express yourself. I have used several types of graphics tablets over the years, and am currently using an Xp pen Artist 16 pro which I have found to be a really great piece of equipment. I mostly use free digital art software like Firealpaca, but have also used photoshop in the past. I pride myself on being able to create close likenesses of people, as well as creating new characters from a range of sources. As well as this, I enjoy creating interesting concepts for my portraits, using a variety of inspirations (such as artists from art history, which I have a degree in). So far I am primarily working on my own ideas, but I have done some work experience with a commission for a local musician's debut single album art, so I have some idea of what it is like to work with a client.
