My Bio
In the summer of 2009, I created this account with "Moygara," my friend from swim team who was also into anime (hence the username). At the time, anime wasn't a phase, it was a lifestyle. That and Neopets. Though they did turn out to be phases, they drove me to continuously practice drawing and inspired me to learn Photoshop and HTML/CSS, invaluable skills.

These days, as a working adult (paint formulator!), I focus on traditional realistic/semi-realistic paintings, most of which are of people and/or animals, though I occasionally dabble in digital painting/graphic design, photography, and sculpture. I have always loved faces, and I am constantly intrigued by the subtle color shifts I see in their skin, driving me to exaggerate and invent color shifts in my paintings, adding dimension and vibrancy. I have also grown fond of fabric patterns and mirrors/fragmentation of reality, and these interests are reflected in some recent works.

Please enjoy my gallery!

Goings on...

I'm taking a new media class, so you may or may not see some of the results of that...depending on how they turn out. We had an animated GIF project, and I animated some of my paintings/drawings since I had taken a bunch of work-in-progress pictures of them. They turned out alright, but they looked a little wonky since there was different lighting and I didn't use a tripod (iPhone camera lol). Most of the class used photographs they had taken with the intention of turning them into GIFs, so they obviously had better quality images to start out with. The other day we had a critique of everyone's GIFs...Who would have that we'd be analyzing and

So yesterday I decided to try out giving points to dAhub in exchange for watches and faves. I was inundated for over three hours with watch and fave notifications - it was something like 250 notifications or so! According to dAhub, I received 51 watchers and 80 favorites, but 51+80 is only 131. Similarly, I had 63 watchers before and have 123 now, which means I actually got 60 new watchers. So I did noticeably better than dAhub gave people credit for, which I know is probably at least partially due to users not understanding that only the first two faves count for points or due to watching or faving after the quota had already been met, but

    1.     How long have you been on DeviantArt?     I've been a member since 2009, so six years, though I haven't been active the whole time.    2.     What does your username mean?     I originally made this account with a friend, and we ran it jointly for a while (but it's just me now). We came up with the name together when we were both obsessed with anime as middle schoolers.    3.     Describe yourself in three words.     Thoughtful, musical, and (duh) artistic!    4.     Are you left or right handed?     Right    5.     What was your first deviation?     The Girl with the Red Hair, followed closely by Naruto-Pikachu, my most-vi

Thank you for the fav! :)
You're welcome. :)
Thanks for the watcher!
You're welcome. :)
:iconllamajumpplz: thanks for the llama :)

Thank you for choosing AbsurdAir, your captain for this flight is KaidokJ. He has no license, can’t see well and is easily distracted so there’s good chance we’ll never make our destination. But since this whole flight metaphor is just a weak attempt at a humorous anecdote, I don’t think that’s going to be a problem. Ah damn, I crashed through the 4th wall.

Anyway, thanks for the watch. :happybounce:

I’m sure you regret your choice by now, considering this madness is basically what you signed up for, but since all tickets are non-refundable, welcome to Crazytown. Quarantine measures come into effect upon arrival. :psychotic:  

Thanks for the fav on The Kevin Chronicles. 001
Will Kevin ever defeat the Crime Lord, Sir Greedypants? Can he save his lovely photographer, Gary, from plummeting 3 feet to his death? Will his slow dancing skills ever help him to clean up the streets of Umbropolis? Tune in next week to find out. Until then, never trust a llama with your browser history, it only ends in tears. :cries:


You can find Chapter 2 here - The Kevin Chronicles - 002
