Introducing Cryptid-Creations

:iconcryptid-creations:

Hey there! I'm Cryptid-Creations, also known as Piper Thibodeau. I've been active on DeviantArt since 2008 and the website has been an integral step in my career as a character designer and illustrator. When I started off initially in the 9th grade, I wasn't familiar with digital painting and stuck to drawing traditionally. DeviantArt thankfully allowed for me to discover great artistic influences like nicholaskole, TastesLikeAnya, Etoli, and RobbVision (to name a few). Seeing the high quality, creativity and evolution of their work deeply influenced me and sparked my interest in painting digitally. Had I not developed these role-models as a young artist on the site, I don't believe I'd have gotten far in my pursuit to become a character designer.

I started the daily painting series in 2012 and have been working consistently on it ever since. While I post my work on many different platforms, the series very much had its genesis on this site and I'm extremely grateful for the viewer-base that it's accrued over the past five years. As a content creator, I don't think there's anything more encouraging than reading comments or messages telling you that your artwork cheered someone up :) DeviantArt provided a great platform for me to grow artistically as a budding designer, and I've made friends and connections off of the site that I still keep to this day. It's a great online community and I believe that it is an exceptionally useful platform for artists who are starting off and are looking to be inspired.

Deviousness Award Winner

Cryptid-Creations DeviantArt story is a perfect circle.  Inspired by other artists she found on DA to experiment with Digital Art,  she has gone on to craft a successful, artistic career for herself. You have likely stumbled across one of the many images that Piper has drawn as part of her "Daily Paint Series"; a personal daily task she set back in 2012 that is quickly approaching its 2000th installment. Her gallery is a treasure trove of color, whimsy, humor -- and the mark of a truly creative mind.  The inspired artist of yore has now become the inspiration for many and there is nothing more kindred to the community than that.  It's obvious that Cryptid-Creations is "punstoppable" and we are tickled pink to award her Deviousness for May 2018.

Showing some love

Cryptid-Creations has a gallery filled with creativity and an overwhelming sense of joy. Her daily paints series is an impressive project showing an amazing sense of dedication to her art as well as to her thousands of watchers. Also,can you really go wrong with this many puns?

Where do I even start with this Deviant? Talk about TALENT! I love all her works. So creative and fun I wish she would create a coloring book for her fun creatures! I sure would buy one or 5!

Before I saw Cryptid-Creations art, I never thought it was possible to come up with so many animal puns! Her creativity seems to have no limits with adorable creatures and beautiful execution and her dedication to posting daily is alsoquite inspiring! Cryptid-Creations has some of the funniest and most beautiful pictures on DeviantArt, bringing smiles and inspiration to thousands of deviants on a regular basis. Her exemplary membership has definitely earned her the award! Congratulations!

Every day, since October 2012, a cute critter pops on DeviantArt. It’s one of the marvelous daily paintings by Cryptid-Creations! Piper Thibodeau’s art has become a part of our lives, bringing a smile to an impressive amount of people. She is one of the most prolific, skillful and beloved artists on DeviantArt, and absolutely deserves the Deviousness Award for sharing with us a bit of joy every day of the year!

Ohhh my goodness!!! Each one of Cryptid-Creations’ illustrations is filled with so much creativity and imagination,that it is pure pleasure when I find her work in my notifications, I am IN LOVE with her work!!! There are so many details, such beautiful colors, such ingenious concepts in her gallery, that visiting her page is something I always do, expecting to fave bomb her!!! I am very happy to see her being celebrated today, it makes me joyful to see the people I admire so much, being honored like this. Congratulations dearest Cryptid-Creations, may you keep transporting us into that lovely fantasy world you SO creatively build for us!

I don't recall how long I've been following the work of Cryptid-Creations, but I've loved watching her deviations for a long time. They're so adorable and colorful, they just make you smile! If you haven't checked out her work before,make sure you do. And when you do, don't just check out the artworks, but also the titles. They're always relatableto the deviation and they've often made me laugh! Definitely very deserving of Deviousness, if you'd ask me. A great artist!

I really appreciate when an artist doesn't try to fit in a 'generally likable' style but has his or her own style.It needs just a glimpse of the eye to recognize Cryptid-Creations cute and fresh style. Her drawings are full of imaginationand colors. I also appreciate her dedication to publishing her work that frequent on DeviantArt. She really deserves the award, she's an inspiration not only because of a good quality art but for creating work every day and posting it on DA!

Cryptid-Creations is one of my all-time favourite deviants on DeviantArt! The creativity never seems to run out and I look forward to seeing every single piece! Every creation is unique and so much fun to look at. The colors, play onwords and how each theme is made is super inspiring! I feel they represent what the core and feel of what DeviantArt is all about for me! This award was made for Cryptid-Creations! Congratulations!

Cryptid-Creations is a fascinating artist to watch. Apart from her spectacular art and general warmth and friendliness, she also produces a daily painting, which is what initially drew me to her work as most of these are heavily based on puns - a form of humor I adore with all my heart and soul. These images are so creative and so varied that it is an absolute joy to see them in my inbox daily. (As an aside, she also sells these daily paintings in books...check them out!) She puts extreme effort into producing quality art over and over again, and is always welcoming. Congratulations Piper on your Deviousness - it couldn't go to someone more deserving.

What a well deserved Deviousness award! Cryptid-Creations has been inspiring artists for years with expertly crafted shape language, vibrant colors, and charming character design. What first strikes me when browsing their gallery is the fluidity of style and the beauty to be found in simplicity and shape. Jolly forms come together with beautiful patterns. The intricate rendering of pattern overlayed on top of wonderfully refined shape language really is something to behold. Congratulations on the award!


Congratulations to Cryptid-Creations!
