My Bio


If you've got any business related inquires, please send me an e-mail. Please do not send me a DA note or comment on my front page with job information.


I am a former full-time character designer for DreamWorks TV and a freelance designer.

My clients include: DreamWorks TV, Nickelodeon, Intel, Sesame Street and GameLoft

I also have a Tumblr and an Twitterand an Imgur account

Do you take requests, art-trades, or commission.
I'm flattered by the interest, but no I do not. I DO take professional level commissions depending on my availability. Please reach me at and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

(By professional, I mean work for companies and projects moreso than fun paintings for individuals. Sorry for the unavailibity on the latter)

Can I use your work/ one of your existing character designs?
Sorry, no. I'm extremely rigid about the use of my personal work outside of creating icons. I appreciate people sharing my work with accreditation, but please do not edit my stuff or use it as a base for your own work etc.

That being said, since I get this request from time to time: you're totally allowed to turn my stuff into 3D works (with credit/ non-profit)

What programs and equipment do you use?
Photoshop CC, Cintiq 22'', and a Cintiq Companion when I'm on the go

What brushes do you use?
* The custom non-integrated PS brushes I use are from the following:………

What are daily paintings?
Daily paintings is a self-imposed challenge on myself to paint something every day before 12:00 --no excuses (unless it's a serious emergency)

Deviousness Award

Cryptid-Creations DeviantArt story is a perfect circle. Inspired by other artists she found on DA to experiment with Digital Art, she has gone on to craft a successful, artistic career for herself. You have likely stumbled across one of the many images that Piper has drawn as part of her "Daily Paint Series"; a personal daily task she set back in 2012 that is quickly approaching its 2000th installment. Her gallery is a treasure trove of color, whimsy, humor -- and the mark of a truly creative mind. The inspired artist of yore has now become the inspiration for many and there is nothing more kindred to the community than that. It's obvious that Cryptid-Creations is "punstoppable" and we are tickled pink to award her Deviousness for May 2018.
Awarded May 2018
