Welcome back to Fan Art Sundaes: the weekend segment more persistent than a bratty child. This weekend is dedicated to the works of Airand Zachari Rabaria, who goes by her online handle "Creachivity" (which is a play on her name and the word "creativity").
Chi is a self-taught, 20-year-old freelance artist who specializes in 2D digital works and layout design. Though she uses the usual means of getting her art around (like online social media), she has recently been tabling at local conventions and doing art commissions there.
Her love of drawing started at an early age, where she used crayons and watercolor palettes to copy pictures from her favorite storybooks.
As she grew into her teens, she started posting her fan works on DeviantArt under the name "sweetcandyteardrop". It was around this time where she discovered Photoshop and was known for using a mouse to create her works. It wasn't until she turned 16 when she got her first drawing tablet and started using Painttool SAI. She was able to gain thousands of followers under the same account until one day it got hacked and her gallery was deleted.
Since then, she has been using Tumblr as her main art platform under the new name "Creachivity".
Her art style has been told to be dynamic, versatile, and very neat. Considering that she mixes art styles from both eastern and western influences (which often contrast), her style is very flexible and befits the character she is drawing.
She draws inspiration from international artists like Wenqing Yan (also known as Yuumei), whom she looks up to for the emotion and creative interpretation in her works. She is also a fan of Mi-eau, who is known for her cutesy art. As for local online artists, Rosuuri is one of her favorites for the detail she puts into her work.
By far one of the biggest influences on Chi's art style is the Attack on Titan anime. Since she got obsessed with it a few years ago, she unconsciously adapted some of the art techniques into her current style.
But her biggest influence? That comes from the people who support her. There have been times at local conventions when young artists would tell her they admire and get inspired by her works. This is what gives her the inspiration to do better and create more art.
You already know she likes Attack on Titan, but she is also currently into Yuri on Ice, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, My Hero Academia, and Steven Universe. She recently finished Final Fantasy XV, so expect fan art of the game soon.
You can see some of her works here and find the rest of them on her website. Though her main platform is Tumblr, you can also find her on Instagram and Twitter. You can also watch her speed drawings on her YouTube channel.
