Critiques


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...

Friends

  • 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.

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, Smoking Mouse Design Studio, 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.

I just want you to know you've been an enormous inspiration to me over many years. I was struck with InuYasha infatuation a while back and I came across your work before I was a deviant. And then I come to find out a few years later, I was accepted into the same art school that you were. Coincidence? Maybe. I don't know. But I think that it's really cool how Ringling's just followed me this entire time, given my family roots are also in Ringling.

You do such wonderful work! I'm very sorry things have been so disappointing for you around here; for me, that's a demo in short of the problems with dA overall. I hope you've found other places to post and be happy, and am glad that you still have so much loveliness here as well. Best wishes!

Yeah, he started spreading this obviously false rumor I was one of "da evUL atheists" when I'm Christian. Ironic that considering he follows the same religion what he did was a giant sin. That and he would just stalk me wherever I went and would slander me in any comment I made. It got pretty ridiculous.
