About Me

Kei • 19 • Any Pronouns • Varied Artist


djinnfriend is my mate, check him out! ❤

I thoroughly enjoy drawing characters that are of "unattractive" qualities (overweight, scarred, etc.), or are trans/intersex. Having said this, I draw a lot of nudity without fetishizing or sexualizing the characters. I want to aid in the creation of a more body and mind positive community, because my art and characters are an extension of myself. I put the utmost care in all pieces, and though some are better than others, I cherish each piece knowing that it's another step closer to reaching my goals.

Feeling down about your art? I've been there. We all have. As artists, we must go through a journey to find our style, our themes, and our attitudes. My philosophy is that no matter how low you may feel, you should always remember that each drawing is another step closer to being the best artist you can be. Don't look at each drawing individually. There are going to be days when you can't seem to get it right, no matter what you try. But that doesn't mean you stop trying - giving up will only hinder your growth as an artist. Don't compare yourself to artists who you deem better than you. Remember that they, too, went through low points and pushed through to become better at what they do. You CAN do it.
