Nikita Tsai is an Asian-American illustrator based in Los Angeles, California. She is a learning artist who specializes in digital art on Photoshop and Clip Studio. Her biggest inspirations are video games, film, and animation ー industries she hopes to contribute her skills one day. Nikita’s hobbies include being a plant enthusiast, petting her dog, and sketching.
Growing up on animation, I am drawn (pun intended) to storytelling and subtle narratives in an illustration. I am fascinated by the concept art and the visual development in games and films; I love browsing through art books that include the behind-the-scenes of a production. It is inspiring and helpful for me to see the process of artists going through numerous changes until landing on the final design of a character or illustration. I am still learning to create more compelling characters and their designs along with environments while still solidifying my own artistic style. I am also learning how to capture raw emotions in my work because I believe that bringing out the range of human emotions is paramount in storytelling and helps make my illustrations stronger by creating a personal connection with the viewer.
