Hello, I'm Kari Avalon. ( ´ ▽ ` ) I'm a hobby illustrator that is currently based in South Korea, but I previously resided in California, USA. I like drawing dreamy and ephemeral things. On rare occasions, I dabble in graphic design and other creative mediums. I previously tabled in artist alleys and contributed my work to various things, too. Anyway, it's nice to meet you all!
Hi! I was commissioned by
nyamomask (at twitter) to draw an updated concept design of Lepus in her Eternal stage. She'll get there someday!
And, thanks for continually supporting me! Lepus's design was intricate, but I think I managed to make it work somehow, haha.
Ahhh I exerted way more effort than I thought, but here's a quick redesign of my cute longtime alchemist character named Opalia.
Until now, it didn't occur to me to just... incorporate various aspects of her collection of designs into one look.
Anyway, I hope that she'll be making an appearance in future works!
Forreal if you're "tired of anime" and its "common tropes" try watching some shows or movies that don't have a target audience of 12 year old boys.
Watch shows like Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju, A Place Further Than The Universe, Shirobako, Princess Jellyfish, Girls' Last Tour, Chihayafuru, Laid-Back Camp, and Baccano.
Watch movies directed by Naoko Yamada, Mamoru Hosoda, Satoshi Kon, Yasuhiro Yoshiura, Masaaki Yuasa (do I even have to mention Miyazaki and Makoto Shinkai at this point?).
Hi! I like to draw and whatnot. I've previously contributed art for some indie CDs and artbooks, dabbled in graphic design, once drew a picture book dummy, and more.
