I'll write a critique since you asked for one. Ignore the star ratings... I personally think they're stupid and unnecessary and I'm nev...

I hate having to fill out the little stars on DA's crit feature... they seem kind of pointless. Anyways... I have a few detail quibbles...


  • Listening to: "Fake It" -- Bastille
  • Playing: Breath of the Wild
  • Drinking: Diet Coke
But there's been art! Lots of figure skating art! Yeah!

If you're not into Yuri on Ice, though... sorry. Can't help ya.

And I'm not really sorry.

The main point of this post is to remind anybody who still watches me here on dA that I have a tumblr account where I am far more active. It's right here, also as KrisCynical.

I'm going to be uploading the old InuKag artwork that dA axed all those years ago due to their asinine "epilogues don't count" witch hunt policy very soon. So if you're not into Yuri on Ice -- which is what my blog is primarily about along with some politics -- there will be some Inuyasha thrown in there as well. All of my artwork is tagged with "art post" and all Inuyasha posts are tagged with, of course, "Inuyasha". If you only want to see the Inu stuff you can blacklist "yoi" because that's what I tag every Yuri on Ice post with without fail.

Updates-wise, after seven long years I finally managed to beat my depression this past fall. I no longer consider myself depressed, and the two major factors behind that are 1) finally getting my own studio space and 2) Yuri on Ice. My studio did most of the job, Yuri on Ice just finished pulling me the rest of the way out of that hole. 

My grandmother's old bedroom across the hallway from mine is now my studio, and I love it to bits. It's my sanctuary. The walls are teal with a dual toned purple accent wall, and those walls are covered in the Aladdin fine art that I've accumulated for years but had nowhere to safely display. I also have a display cabinet with all of my favorite Aladdin sculptures, glass, and jewelry. The finishing touch is a 40" TV with every gaming system I own hooked into it at once via an 8 port switch box so I can relive my retro gaming childhood any time I please (although lately all of my free time has been consumed by Breath of the Wild dear God that game is absolute perfection that I have been waiting for since I was 14 and first popped Ocarina of Time into my 64 in 1998). 

Having a place to escape to where I can work without anybody else bothering me has been wonderful for my mental and emotional well-being, and my productivity has skyrocketed back to near what it was right after I graduated from Ringling ten years ago (yes, it has actually been THAT long... I am getting old). I spend the majority of my day in here and I love it. 

Also as one last note: I will be at A-Kon this year as always. This year we're moving to the Ft. Worth Convention Center and as far as I know we're actually going to be in the same room as the dealers, which I think is awesome. Now that I'm no longer depressed I'm planning on having several new prints this year so if you're going to be there, please drop by and say hello! 

So... yeah. I think that's about it. 

Come follow me on tumblr!

BFA in Illustration
Ringling School of Art and Design

Freelance Illustrator, Designer, and Colorist

Hello there. I'm Kris. I've been drawing since I was three years old and grew up with every bit of art supplies I could ever want thanks to my incredibly supportive parents (who didn't say "Oh, God, where did we go wrong?!" when I told them I wanted to go to art school for college). I earned my BFA in Illustration from Ringling where I met some amazing artists in my classmates and learned some amazing things. I now work as a freelance illustrator, designer, and colorist for individual clients as well as Brown Cow Productions and ARC Interactive. I specialize in children's illustration but can do just about anything a client could ask of me including graphic design. I enjoy illustrating stories and conveying emotion in my work through facial expression, body language, and movement. I also love playing with light and shadow.

When I was growing up I didn't really have any other artists around me to learn from despite how hard my parents searched for an art tutor for me. Because of that, I'm always happy to help younger artists through answering questions about art school or giving constructive critique when asked. While I don't sugar coat my crits, I'm not mean, either -- I do my best to offer solutions and suggestions for art books and artist resources in order to encourage improvement. If you would like for me to critique something for you, don't hesitate to note me!

On the fandom side, I draw fanart in my free time for my own enjoyment and dA is where I showcase it all. I am also crazy about Inuyasha. It was my first true anime love and over 10 years after first discovering it, it's still by far my favorite series. Kagome and Inuyasha are my OTP which is why 99% of my Inu fanart is of the two of them. I'm best known in the fandom for drawing them in my own style rather than the anime canon style, or at least that's what I've been told.

Oh, and contrary to what most people on dA assume, I am not a boy!
I have the boobs to prove it.

"The greater the artist, the greater the doubt; perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize."

Hi~ As a former Disney Employee, and one recently laid off in August 2003.... Here is some info. :)

Continuing Walt's Legacy

ORLANDO, FLORIDA (January 8, 2004) - Legacy Animation Studios, a new
animation production studio in Orlando Florida, opens its doors in Winter
Garden, Florida close to Orlando later this month. The studio will offer a
full-range of traditional hand drawn (or 2D) animation services for film,
television and commercials. Legacy was established by a group of animators
and artists formerly employed by Walt Disney Feature Animation Florida.
Legacy will also be dedicated to developing original properties for
television and film. In time the studio hopes to produce its first feature
film project.

"We believe that traditionally animated films are still a viable form of
entertainment," says Legacy Animation Studios Directing Manager, Eddie
Pittman. "Our goal is to create quality animated films with compelling
stories and strong characters and to continue Walt Disney's legacy of hand
drawn animation."

The Legacy team has the talent to back up their claim, with the combined
experience of over 25 animated films including The Little Mermaid, Beauty
and the Beast, Aladdin, Mulan and Lilo& Stitch.

Pittman has worked on such animated features as Mulan, Tarzan, and Lilo &
Stitch. He has taught for the renowned Computer Animation program at
Ringling School of Art and Design, and his popular drawing classes taught
around Central Florida have been recommended to aspiring animators by Walt
Disney Feature Animation Florida. Recently, he directed Legends of the Night
Sky: Orion, the world's first full dome (360°;) traditionally animated movie
for AV-Imagineering.

Also joining the management team as Creative Director is veteran assistant
animator David Nethery. Nethery has nearly 20 years of experience as an
animation artist, most of those years at Walt Disney Feature Animation. His
credits include such characters as "Meeko" the raccoon from Pocahontas,
"Mushu" from Mulan, "Cobra Bubbles" from Lilo & Stitch, and most recently
"Tug" and "Koda's Mom" from Brother Bear.

Legacy currently has three projects in development including a short film
that will begin production in late January 2004.

Ah yes, Legacy Animation. I've heard quite a bit about them in the last week or so. I'd definitely work for them... at least someone has the insight to know that 2D animation isn't dead. It's just suffering from plot deficiency.

Thoughts? Hmm...

Well, to start with... I'm Kristin Bergh. I'm an artist, and within the next few years I'll hopefully be able to tack on "professional" to the front of that if all goes according to plan.

I'm currently a freshman Illustration major at Ringling School of Art and Design in Florida. I have hopes of being an animator after graduation, eventually getting into Disney Feature Animation. I'm a born and raised Texan, so having to relocate to Florida has been a little tough.

I have two main websites right now. All of my artwork can be found on my main art studio, Kristin's Studio, at [link] . All of my Harry Potter work can be found on the currently dormant Chamber of Keys, at [link] . It isn't dead, mind you... just dormant. I also have journals at the following places:

uJournal: [link]
LiveJournal: [link]

My current obsession is the anime series "Inuyasha", original Japanese with subtitles, of course. ~_^ I'm also into Harry Potter, Aladdin, and various other movies and animes. I like playing RPGs like Final Fantasy X and Zelda when I actually have the time to sit down and do so.

I also complete the Aladdin fanfic partnership Nevi Publishing, the other half being my best friend Evi. You can find our work at Kristin's Studio as well as [link] .

it is my regretable task to inform you that after this cow movie that disney is puting out, they will no longer be doing traditional animation. i know, i'm an animation major right now myself and that's what we've been hearing.
however if you can prove me wrong i'll love you.
KrisCynical Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2004  Professional Digital Artist
I don't think I have the material to prove you wrong right now, but I know that the Cali animation studio is still up and running. I've heard about future projects, but I don't know what style of animation they're in. True, right now it looks like I'm going to be stuck with television animation since I really do NOT want to work for DreamWorks for personal reasons.
sarabi Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist
they're going 3d to go head to head with east that's what the rumor mill is saying. I wouldn't mind not being an animator persay, but i'd love to be a character designer ^_^
