In this article, I will go over some useful tips and tricks for making your profile look professional but also personalized! :heart:

:note: In addition, for those who are new to profile decoration, I highly suggest reading my Decorating Your Profile tutorial first, as it goes over important basics of profile decoration.

PE: Presentation matters
Presentation matters
It's not just the artwork that tells you something about it's creator - on the internet, the way you present it is at least equally as important.
