At the same school I am a tutor, I help new and old students whenever they need help!

NGS 2022 Graphic designer.
I've worked with lots of games lately, since 2019! Most of them are school projects but one of our games, Wasting Away, is now published in Steam!

All of my posts are from 2019 to this day. I do have a bit of knowledge using Python and C#, though I don't work with them that much. Have started working with Blender lately but my main working point is 2D graphics. I don't mind 3D modelling, still have to learn the rigging well.

I also do video edits whenever I have time!
