Hi, I'm Mika. I draw things. I am 21 years old and specialize in Digital Art. I am skilled in character design and story telling. Normally prefer to stick to a semi-realistic style, however, I don't shy away from attempting something more cartoon-y. In terms of software I use Photoshop and Paint Tool Sai. I am very passionate about what I do and always strive to improve and broaden my horizons! As a person I am rather shy but I do love meeting new people, especially those who are like-minded and share my interests which include dorky things like TV series/shows, video games and comics. I am a huge nerd when it comes to fantasy, fairy tales/folk lore and mythology.
