I cannot express how happy I am with this commissioned piece completed by @cocotingo. They were so quick, really receptive to my requests for adjustments and were a treasure to work with! I could not have picked a better artist to capture my most important original character.
I highly recommend taking a look at their artwork, especially if you are looking for an artist who isn’t afraid to express the angles and contours of the face. They do some beautiful portrait work and really capture the subtle emotions and facial expressions.
Thank you again, @cocotingo for being so easy to work with. It has been a great pleasure.
And the 2016 Crunchyroll Anime of the Year Award goes to
Yuri!!! on Ice!
And now for some exclusive Viktor Nikiforov reactions:
Congratulations to Kubo, Yamamoto, and all the choreographers, producers, artists, and workers who helped make YOI possible.
A lot of people are angry about this win, but this anime captured all our hearts in a beautiful and artistic manner, whilst proving that love is love and that this phrase can and should be applied even in the fictional world of anime.Fans, your votes made history today, so don’t be afraid to celebrate!

Posted this before a long while back but I just fucking adore it. One of my prouder artist moments. Tried to capture a semi realistic image for this Acrylic Painting.
Would be kinda cool to see what @hajime-isayama-official thought of it too…
