I’m Monika Zagrobelna, a freelance artist with passion for both learning and teaching. My specialty is drawing animals and fantastic creatures. I try to achieve mastery of depicting unreal creatures realistically by studying animal anatomy and learning techniques of digital painting. Because I learn the fastest by teaching, I like to create tutorials about the topics that interest me. I’m an author of hundreds of tutorials and articles focused on drawing, digital painting, vector illustration, photo manipulation, and graphic design, published mainly on Envato Tuts and Sketchbook Blog. I created this blog to share some shorter, more personal tutorials, as well as for a better, closer contact with my readers and fans.

My tools:

  • Autodesk SketchBook Pro
  • Adobe Photoshop CS6
  • Wacom Cintiq 27QHD
