zero808w's Profile & Portfolio


Hi there, I am Illustrator zero808w.
I specialize in monochromatic character Lineart.
I'm also a game developer on the side.
I've always been a huge manga fan.
Naturally, I learned to draw with G-pen and
became familiar with digital illustration.

I'm proficient in many digital illustration software,
but I mainly use Procreate or Clip Studio Paint
depending on the art style I'm creating.

I've received so many questions on Lineart techniques
ever since I've been on social media.
It made me realize there aren't a lot of tutorials
that go in-depth on the subject of Lineart.

As an artist who loves the Lineart illustration style,
I want to share the knowledge
I've acquired throughout the years with you guys.

I'll teach you how to step up your illustration game
by learning how to use Lineart techniques.
Lines are the most basic yet powerful technique you can
apply to make improvements to your drawing instantly.

Interview with

Is there a specific reason why you chose this specific topic/themes?

I chose this topic because my expertise is monochromatic Lineart illustration. I've been drawing for a long time, striving to acquire the elements & qualities of a good Lineart illustration. Early on in my drawing journey, I noticed there weren't a lot of Lineart specific tutorials. Even now, most classes only mention Lineart on a side note as an off-topic discussion. I designed this class specifically for artists who share my experience, those who struggle to find help on improving their Lineart quality.

Could you please share how you started your journey in the industry?

I've been drawing my entire life, but I also have other interests like computer science. I worked full-time as a software engineer but realized I wanted to do something more creative. So I got myself into making games while doing freelance illustration on the side. I think the first step in getting a foot in the industry these days is social media. The more reach you have, the more opportunities you will get, as it is largely a skill-based industry. Now, I am just constantly trying to improve my skill set and learn more about illustration, as art is a never-ending journey.

Please share your thoughts on the industry's job market and what you see in the industry's future.

There are so many paths artists can take in the industry, ranging from concept artists, background artists, and character designers to contemporary jobs such as convention artists and social media art influencers. The skillset required for each discipline varies widely, but the concept of creating engaging and creative art still applies. Artists have to keep up with newer technologies that can help enhance their art, as older methods will eventually die out as individual creativity and expression will be more important in the long run.
