Empress | Kudu | 25 | Digital artist | Vaporwave | Commissions CLOSED | I do not exist | Ⓥ

Hello. My name is Empress.

I take inspiration from subcultures that often make use of bright colors, such as vaporwave and outrun, as well as darker, more surrealist themes such as found in David Lynch productions like Twin Peaks and media such as The Twilight Zone.

Currently, in between client work, I am experimenting with various new mediums and styles, both physical and digital, ranging from traditional oil and acrylic paints to spray can art to 2D animation.

I hope to begin a comic in 2021, though I have plans for a few comics to come when I have time.

I draw using an XP-Pen Deco 1 tablet on SAI.

Please don't be afraid to chat with me, especially if we have similar interests. I enjoy making friends.

I would like to note that my name is inspired from, and taken from, the song 'Empress Rising' by Monolord. The song is great, as is the band. I am offering their links below to show support, since I have taken the name to myself. I took it two years ago for my fursona without much consideration and feel it's right to share their work.

You are a nice artist

Thanks for the fav + watch! I love your style and will be watching you ;)

(that still sounds creepy after 10+ years on dA haha )

Merry X mas!!! :)

Hello! I was a frequent contributor to the group until the past few months my submissions sit in limbo, neither accepted or declined. Is there any particular reason for this?


SO, DeviantArt Eclipse does *not* give me ANY notifications when I get submissions to my group. It's such a lacking feature, but I have to manually check if there are notifications, which I'm honestly so bad at doing. DA also recently fixed a bug where my pieces couldn't get properly voted on, so pieces were getting lost in limbo or expiring.

Please, resubmit your pieces, and I will check them as soon as possible! If after a week, your pieces are still in limbo, please don't hesitate to contact me and I'll do my best to get them through as long as they abide by our guidelines!

I am so sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you so much for being a part of the group!

I submitted my Godzilla anniversary art to the correct folder, ”Multple Kaiju art” and it sat on review for a month until today when I saw that one expired. I’ve re submitted it for review. Please find the time to see If meets your parameters for submission.

Thanks for your time.
