I'm an illustrator and designer who lives in the Bay Area. I still draw from time to time, but you're more likely to see my work on hevromero.tumblr.com!
This is going to sound strange, but I was on kind of a reminiscing spree of a time long past, in a place long forgotten (KRR artboards), and I noticed that you had pictures of an individual who once knew of a long time ago (Aqua Kirby). I doubt you would remember me, as I didn't really make a big impression on anyone back then, and my user name has changed a few times. First I was Mega Kirby, then I became Joe Kirby. But uh...to try and stop sounding weird, I just want to see hello! Nice to see you're still doing art! And...thank you for inspiring me to do so as well all those years ago! :D
The name sounds vaguely familiar! It's been a long time, and I think KRR recently imploded (at least, the forums and anything running databases appear to have died). I was indeed Aqua and still go by that name as an option. Glad to here people still think about KRR. And thanks, nice to hear that I inspired you! Your art is really nice. :)
Thanks! Once upon a time, I learned about drawing tablets from you...and then I eventually got my own. Though, its taken me a while to get good at digital art, and I still feel like I have a long way to go to improve. As far as KRR goes, a lot of people I used to know (including myself) kind of left when they made the decision to remove the artboards. I know they still had the Oekaki, but for whatever reason, it just didn't appeal to me. Oh, and you're right. It has imploded! Last time I checked the site, it was "mostly" still intact, with slow update posts from a single staff member. I wonder what happened...🤔
