C. "Kit" D.
Artist | Student | Digital Art
Hello there! You may call me Mr. No Name, No Name, Kitling, or Kit if you like. My current name is a result of other variations of Mr. No Name being taken already, which was a little bit upsetting. I wanted my name to be consistent with forums that I had been a part of at the time of creating this account... in case you were at all curious about that. I am aware of the negative connotations associated with x's being placed before and after a username
Currently, I'm studying at college to become a graphic designer, as working with art and artistic forms is where my skill set best lies. I have been drawing and painting for a short time though, roughly 6-7 years, but I am fairly young and have much time to learn. I also dwell a little bit in photography, but I've only got a year's worth of experience there. One thing I like to convey in my art is some form of integrity. That is to say whether the art is saying something specific, telling a story, and/or leaving it purposefully vague for the viewer to decide what it means. I do have my fair share of kitschy pieces though. Everyone has their share of that.
On this channel, you'll mostly find fan-art. I do have several pieces conceived entirely by my own thoughts as well, but fan-art, as of this moment, is more dominant. When it comes to fan-art, my personal interpretation of great fan-art is when the character(s) are interacting with and being affected by their environment and each other if there's more than one character (there can also be a certain amount of lack of interaction if appropriate). Most importantly though is that the fan art should say something about the character(s). Otherwise, that character could easily be swapped out with another character, and the image wouldn't have any meaningful change. But I am also fine with appreciation fan-art, where it's just a simple picture of the character(s). Those can be good too, and I've done my fair share of them, as I've mentioned previously.
Though I still try to say something about the character(s) involved.
I'm slowly shifting out of fan-art because my schoolwork requires a lot of more original ideas and I'm having less and less time for projects that aren't school related, and my Deviant Art page is a bit of a mess because of that. I'm thinking of making a second account and putting any new original ideas there and keeping this account my fan-art account, but I haven't decided on anything yet.

Personal Quote: Visions of the past clog the visions of the future; visions of the future distort the experiences of the now - but the friends of the now can guide you back and keep you on track.
