My Bio

Biography



~

Originally from Northern California, I now live in the beautiful, albeit cold and soggy, Pacific Northwest. My passion for art started at a ripe young age like everyone else's, but was immediately combined with a near equal appetite for books. It wasn't until I was 11, and finally old enough to understand that animated movies weren't real but were instead a plausible career option combining both of my loves, that I knew I couldn't do anything else.

Prior to college, I was largely self-taught, devouring books on animation and experimenting on wintery nights with a light table my dad assembled for me in the garage. Formal training began when I was 16, and I tried everything from Animation and Writing, to Painting and Digital Art/Graphic Design, ultimately finding my niche in Storyboard Art. I graduated in 2008 with a degree in Game Art and Design, specializing in what I found to be the perfect blend of my two passions--Visual Storytelling.

Most artists classify themselves by their favored medium; I consider myself a storyteller. My goal in art has always been to give people that same feeling I used to have leaving a theatre after the latest Disney film--goosebumps of joy at something magical, an escape from everyday life, and a momentary pause to savor good entertainment.

I founded Nightwolf A.D.E. (Art, Design & Editing) in 2011, and am currently the Lead Artist for this freelance based company. We offer a range of services, from freelance Writing & Editing, to Graphic Design, Illustration, and of course, Animation. Currently my Animation abilities are restricted to the traditional style, but I am hoping to expand into 3D soon. I am open for commissions, (prices listed below), so if you see something in my galleries you find interesting, please contact me. I can be reached at kisa.whipkey@gmail.com.

Please note: I DO NOT DO TRADES OR REQUESTS AT THIS TIME

Thank you for visiting my page. I hope you've enjoyed your stay!

It's been awhile since I've updated my journal--nearly a year to be exact, eek!--so I thought it was high time I announced something new. First, I'd like to thank those of you who are patiently waiting for me to update my gallery. I promise, it really is going to happen soon. It's been a long process of refining images, learning how to present them properly and setting up various websites that I lovingly like to call my Online Empire. **Evil Laugh** But in all seriousness, I'm super close to finally being able to regularly release new images, writing and other awesomeness. So please be patient just a little longer. Your support really means

I have a limited number of copies for each of my published short stories that I am making available as Autographed Editions. Each Shelter of Daylight issue has a limited production run, and once Sam's Dot Publishing sells all of their stock, they are no longer in print. Of the three issues I've been lucky enough to be featured in, one has already sold out completely, making the copies I have for sale here even more rare. If you are interested in purchasing an Autographed Edition, please contact me via kisa.whipkey@gmail.com. I only accept Paypal and US Currency at this time. All prices include shipping within the United States--International

The following excerpt is from my third published short story, "Confessions." Released in October of 2010, "Confessions" graced the cover of Sam's Dot Publishing's Shelter of Daylight Magazine, Issue 4, under my maiden name of Kisa Rupp. Told in an unconventional format more frequently seen in film, "Confessions" is a story about losing faith. The action-oriented format and pacing of this piece was one of the more challenging ones I've done, and I'm proud of the outcome. I hope you enjoy the dynamic opening to Constia's struggle. Thank you for reading! (Disclaimer: This story touches on some aspects of religion, but none of it was based in re

Cheers for the +watch and the advice on ISBN's :D
Wow, you have a lot of cool stuff :D I will have to go through everything! x3
Thank you so much! I don't have much of my own work up yet, but I'm hoping to fix that soon, if I ever have more than two seconds off work. ;/ Anyway, thanks for stopping by, for the llama and the watch. I really appreciate it. :D
quite welcome :aww: haha well good luck :3
I'm replying to your post [link] here because a mod locked my thread.

Currently, we don't have a critique forum, we have a critique thread.

The difference between a forum and a thread is that a forum is the place where you post threads. For example, the Literature Forum, or the Complaints Forum, or the Help With life Forum. The threads are the links you click on in the forum--the topics of conversations.

What we have right now is one thread for everyone to post in.

What I am asking for is that we have a literature workshop forum, so that way we can be more organized and different people can start their own different threads, instead of being forced in to everyone using the same shitty one we have now.
Ok, I think I see the difference now. Thanks for explaining it. I agree that it would probably be useful to a great many people. I hope they take your suggestion. :)
