My Bio

I'm Simone Grünewald, I'm an illustrator and character designer from Germany. You might know me as "Schmoedraws" from Instagram, YouTube, or my Patreon?

I've worked in the game industry for over 10 years as Art Director, Character Designer, 2D Animator and Key Storyboarder.

With the birth of my son Remus a lot changed. I went from working fulltime to fulltime mum for a year but i always kept up my habbit of drawing!

I went back to working part time but quit in November 2018 to do freelance work and have been doing that next ever since.

Excuse me, I tried doing your hand tutorial thing and I uploaded onto DA but I don’t see my badge popping up! Did I do something wrong?
