My Bio
>Hai-yoi-sho~! Daimyo is a Visual Artist extraordinaire. Quite capable in media of Drawing, Painting, Ceramic Figurines & Pottery, Printing, Posters & Signs, as well as Other Traditional Crafts. No job is too much for his legendary artskills, if the price is right! (Even if done for free, expect only the best!)
>Daimyo is a lover and connoisseur of East-Asian Art and Culture. His interests include History, Nature, Folklore, Health, Martial Arts, Beauties, Manga, and Video Games, and he considers himself a Taoist in the ways of life. His cause is to better himself as a person and as an artist, to make friends and to collaborate in art, and to develop new fantastical works that draw from rich Eastern style/philosophy, for the betterment of tomorrow's youth.
>Currently attending college at TCC (for general education) and VCU (for arts & animation). Also enjoys working part-time with father in construction and home-improvement. Once was a pristine fan-artist, helping to herald in the "Kirby Renaissance" to the now-ruinous Rainbow Resort. Today, is creating new original ideas and characters based on his Asian-interests, right here, at the grand ol' dA~!

April Fools Day: Like me, it comes but once a year

I tend to get active this time of year. Please follow me over on Instagram, if you have not done so already. It's so easy, just follow this link--  https://www.instagram.com/matabei Take the bait! Take the plunge! Catch this fish on the flipside, yo! So, I just got done marathon-uploading all of my old Kirby art from KRR, and am I ever exhausted... It was nice strolling down old memory lane, but that place is dead and festering, so let's only look forward from now on :) At least the past can be preserved here (while DeviantArt lasts, that is). Curious to see who actually still uses DA...? I mean, It's nice to archive stuff, as I've said, bu
