A while back, I started drawing random characters from some of my favourite games as A3 drawings. It was just for a bit of fun and to use my hands for once, as I rarely get to in my very digital career.
After a while, I kept posting my progress on social media and started getting a lot of positive comments about my work and a few even asked to buy them. So I took my favourite designs and got them professionally printed on to A3 and set up an Etsy store. It’s barely been a week and the response has been amazing! I never thought there would be much interest but i’m now starting to plan another batch of new designs and even have some commissions lined up. So expect to see more of these.
These designs cover games and anime such as Overwatch, Final Fantasy, Full Metal Alchemist and Pokemon. I’m planning on doing more Final Fantasy related ones and i’m a bit late to the game this year, but maybe a set of Christmas cards next year if all this goes well 😀
To be honest, I was just doing these drawings for myself to put on my very bare wall in my new place. I find it quite fun though and very relaxing to just draw again as it’s been so long since I’ve done any hand made arts and crafts.
