Introducing sakimichan


Hello Everyone. My name is Sakimichan. I first started posting my art on DeviantArt 11 years ago and it's an honor to get such a reward from a community I've been apart for many years.

I'm mostly a character focused digital artist, my favorite tools are Photoshop CS 6 and Wacom Cintiq 21 UX. I'm well known for my fantasy pieces of mermaids, Horoscope girls and Disney Gender Swap pieces. These days I enjoy drawing pinups of characters I enjoy from animes, games and movies.

In my down-time I enjoy observing the world around me to gain inspiration for my work (daily surroundings/movies/games/shows/other artists).

I'm always looking to improve my craft so I paint daily and I enjoy it. I'm thankful to my fans and supporters for allowing me the opportunity to do so.

I will keep it up and hopefully provide my fans with pieces that they can enjoy for years to come.

December 2017

Deviousness Award Winner

The highly talented sakimichan has earned every single watch, faithful comment and devious feature they have received in the eleven years they have been actively present within the community on DeviantArt. There has not been a time when their artwork has not amazed me for its diverse range of beauty and painstaking creativity. Here you will find outstanding interpretations of well known Anime, comic book, Disney characters and much more, impressively presented. It is doubtful you will find an artist who can find quite the perfect aesthetics to match sakimichan I offer my heartfelt congratulations to them on a well-earned deviousness award, they truly deserve the spotlight!

Her amazing drawings have been taking part of my inbox notifications for quite some time, I absolutely LOVE her works!!! Everything has a beautiful set of intricate details; something that always captures my eye immediately. sakimichan understands human anatomy really well, and all it’s demonstrated in each one of her works. I also follow her tutorials; this amazing artist shares her knowledge, her brushes, everything!!! Her generosity in doing whatever she can to help other artists benefit from her own knowledge makes her a wonderful human being!!! I am super happy to see her being honored by this sweet Award!!! CongraSUPERtulations, my dearest sakimichan!!! Keep up the great job you’re doing.

sakimichan is a force. I knew her work from the early days on DA and it is great to see her grow as an artist and become successfully independent. In that regard, she was and is a constant inspiration to me. Her sense for creating a business out of her art is far beyond astonishing and something every artist can learn from. It is easy to see why especially the younger, emerging artists seem to be inspired by her, but she got skills that even keep more experienced artists in awe. Even if her style and topics polarize often, you gotta agree that the sheer amount of output and high quality is insane! Keep it up sakimichan!

sakimichan is one of the most recognizable digital artists nowadays and author of hundreds of awesome artworks. She inspires me as well as lots of other people to keep improving and moving forward despite all odds. Beautiful forms, vivid colors, her every work is worth seeing. If you haven’t visited her gallery yet – go do it right now! I’d like to congratulate Sakimichan with this reward. You deserve it.

I think I found sakimichan by browsing the extensive DA categories many years ago and fell in love with her works. Her works are uniquely identifiable to her and are wonderful with various colors, textures, poses, and composition. Her environment pieces are brilliant and make you think of a backstory! sakimichan is a great example of how to promote and market ones’ work, being a very successful person using artist-admirer based sites like Patreon for example and has been widely known on DA for many years. Not only that, she also provides, tutorials and resources for artists and there are many who take inspiration and help from her resources! Whether it is her personal works or fandom/fan service works, she shows her skills and personality equally well in each work! Congratulation on your Deviousness Award sakimichan!


sakimichan has been an active part of the DeviantArt community for as long as I can remember. Her passion for painting shows through clearly in her expansive gallery, and it's been wonderful to watch her career blossom. I had the chance to meet her at a convention and her kindness remains in my mind. Congratulations on the well-deserved award!

sakimichan's painting style is obviously one of a kind which stands out and is easily recognizable. To produce such amount of quality artworks probably needs quite a bit of sleepless nights... a hard work is something to admire! Her early works of fantasy characters and fanservice is something that took attention of many already years ago and probably influenced many other artists out there :)

I've been following sakimichan's artwork both here and elsewhere for years now, and always look forward to something new from her. Her work is a like a fireworks show of color, light, and drama, and her characters seem to come right out of the screen. What she does is dreamy, impressive, and inspirational.

Her art style is distinct and beautifully refined so it's no wonder that many other artists look up to her and draw inspiration from her creations. sakimichans love for art and the hard work that she has clearly put into improving over the years show through in each piece she creates. I believe her immense success, not only on DeviantArt but also on other sites like Patreon, is just further proof that she is passionate about her art. Since I am not very good at writing things like this I think the only thing left to say is "Congrats sakimichan! Deviousness well deserved!

Congratulations to sakimichan!

Eclipse Change Log: December 12, 2018

This week, nearly the whole DeviantArt team — encompassing staff members from Los Angeles, Tel Aviv, Kiev, and Vancouver, to name a few — has come together at our HQ in Hollywood to focus on Eclipse and plan what’s in store for 2019.

As a reminder, we’re continuing to work on the bigger community feedback concerns — including customization and improvements to Feedback — and we hope to share more soon.

Since the holidays are coming up, and many people on our team are traveling or taking time off, we won’t have a change log to share for a short while. But we want to let you all know that we are continuing to review and analyze your feedback, and we look forward to sharing more updates with you early next year!

Change Log

Literature descriptions are back! (Popular request!)After replying to a comment in Feedback, the notification is now automatically removed. (Popular request!)Comment link pages now have "parent" and "top" buttons, and are now centered for easy readability. (Popular request!)Scraps are back!You can now mention a deviant just by typing (rather than selecting them from the list).The Gift dropdown on profile now tells you when you've already given them a llama or they are full of cake. Removed minimum character count in Status Updates and Journals, allowing deviants to share a post that simply includes a deviation, gallery, or video.
