I'm MkLXIV, and I aim to be "an artist who cares." By which I mean to say I draw things because I care about them rather than draw things just for money/attention, that I put care into the things I do, and I care for my friends and the communities I'm a part of. I'm a sucker for cutesy things. I do both SFW and NSFW artwork.
You can also find things I did experimentally in my Scraps folder. That's where you'll find stuff I made to experiment with different techniques, styles, etc. that may not fully be fleshed out.
A little about me
Most people online refer to me as just "MK" or "MKL," particularly on Discord where the bulk of my Internet friends happen to know me from. I'm no professional artist, but I strive towards making things that look professional, even if it's not my career. I primarily draw Pokémon as of now, but I'll be drawing my own characters as well eventually; I'm particularly interested making cute kemono-ish characters.
Outside of that, I'm also the one who helped many popular artists out during an incident on Twitter in 2019, in which a troll impersonating a Nintendo representative was sending fraudulent DMCA claims over NSFW art- I helped artists get their artwork restored and pages unbanned with the counter-notification templates I created.
Professionally, I... Well, I don't have a career yet; but I'm currently working on a Bachelor's degree in Game and Simulation Programming- so basically I'm working towards being a game developer or a software developer. I'm wanting to do software development more as of now. Android development seems fun, low-level stuff in C sounds good too.
Commission and Request Status
I don't do commissions; I do art purely for fun and to meet new friends. If you give me a suggestion I like, I may make it.
I do have hobbies other than drawing and artsy stuff! I enjoy playing fighting games; especially Touhou 15.5 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Fox main, reporting in). I like tampering with tech stuff like Raspberry Pis and console homebrew as well. Besides it being my intended career, I also enjoy programming. I'm being taught Java, but I'm ready to ditch it for something not terrible (C? Python? Both?) ASAP as soon as I don't need it for any more courses.
I don't mind if you put my art on e621/Discord/etc. as this is something I do for fun- no need to ask. Just source the posts properly and tag me properly if you're uploading to imageboards. Do note that I'll be uploading my stuff to e621 myself though; if I don't do it promptly, don't be afraid to do it for me.
I've taken out the trash. I'll post again when I don't make rubbish.
