"kurrypai012" on dA, "Kat" in real life. Represented by my own original character; "Luxtar".
Born and live in the UK.
Been drawing since I was about 6 or 7, and draw as a hobbyist. My main topics are fan-arts, humanoid figures and characters, animals, original character creations, artisan crafts and landscape and moment-capture photography (seeing something cute or interesting and just taking a snap XD).
My style is quite raw - it's traditional though I mainly work with digital programs and a tablet, because I like lines and I like definition and being able to see hard edges in my drawings. My figures are similar to comic panel characters, and often my backgrounds and the final piece looks freshly done, new and defined clearly with lines, so not exactly realism. My ideas can be quite abstract, but enjoy anatomy and body lines, so in that sense I try to get the shapes as realistic as possible. I most often shade with segments of colour, not brushy strokes. TOOLS OF THE TRADE: Pencils and markers and sometimes paints, fineliner pens and sometimes felt tips. Bamboo Wacom CTL-470 A5 tablet + matching digital pen. PROGRAMS: MS Paint, Photoshop SE, Gimp 2.0, sometimes MS Word.
I like to create my own characters; sometimes just as virtual-reality imaginary friends for stories or scenarios, or to reprensent someone who in real life is close to me. At the bottom of my deviantID section you will see an area where I have listed all of my characters.
