My Bio
Hi everyone! My name is Rho, and I'm another one of those guys who like to draw Pokemon fan art! Absol is definitely my favourite, so I tend to draw him a lot. When I play Pokemon, I train a jolly natured male Absol named Shepherd, so I'm trying to incorporate him as much as possible, here. Naturally, I'll branch out and draw others.

My name is a combination of the greek letter ρ (or "rho"), and "ark," which is an acronym for "Acts of Random Kindness," and I try to give out as many of those as humanly possible. Thus... Rhoark lol!

I starting drawing in April of 2018, so I've definitely got some learning to do! But I'm really enjoying it so far! Drawing is pretty calming for me, and I've been pretty pleased with what I've produced. I'm definitely not fast though! It takes me a fair number of hours to confidently finish something and the number of layers I need to use in PaintTool SAI is atrocious! I guess this is part of the learning process 😂

Outside of drawing, I'm a graduate student at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro earning a PhD in Computational Mathematics. So in addition to taking classes, I'm a graduate teaching assistant. This means I tutor A LOT.

Overall, I have a full schedule and don't get to draw as much as I'd like to. But right now, I'm trying to push myself to post at least one piece of artwork every two weeks (a WIP doesn't count, it has to be something finished). Anyway, I hope you enjoy the content I'm posting. Everything here is strictly SWF. I also have an Instagram, where I'll basically post the same stuff.
