Aki Smith
Artist | Student | Traditional Art
United States
Feel free to call me Aki Smith. It's not my birth name, but there's another illustrator who already has my birth name, and I don't want to have to fight for that in the artistic world.

I'm planning on majoring in illustration. I have a passion for drawing humanoid characters and I'm starting to really love sequential art and visual storytelling; I plan on selling prints or publishing my newest web comic.

In my art, I obsess over fantasy and theological themes-especially Christian and Jewish concepts. I love drawing angels, but I also love illustrating darker conception and creatures too. I always try to invoke an emotion in my drawings-so I hope that's clear.

Favourite style of art: Traditional illustration
