You can refer to me as Cy or Cykedelia.
I am a freelance artist based in the US, and I mainly focus on drawing my original characters, with the occasional fanart. You could say that my characters have been the biggest motivation for my art career. I had a simple goal--to illustrate these characters the best I could to present them to people!
I was fascinated with colors more than others because of the way it influences an artwork. The atmosphere, form, and value can all be determined more effectively by colors. In a way, I see art as a means to an end, not necessarily the end itself. I am grateful for this opportunity to share what I have learned to others.
