About

Hello, I’m Kuro!

I’m a self-taught artist from Portugal and I specialize in visual novel-type illustration, with clean lines and smooth shading. I mainly draw summery things and pretty anime girls, and I do regular livestreams of my drawing. I love storytelling, video games, and learning about interesting things. :>

Random facts:

  • I’ve been drawing since 2006, and digitally since 2011. I use a Wacom Intuos Pro M tablet and Clip Studio Pro as the software.
  • I make visual novels in my spare time, where I draw, write, and program. So far only Cuttlebone is out (get it on itch.io!), but I have other stories in the works that should hopefully see the light of day soon.
  • I’ve made many timelapses of my pieces, which you can find on my youtube art page.
  • I have a degree in computer science.
  • I’ve made some handy user scripts.
  • I was a prolific Dustforce map maker and some of my maps come pre-installed with the game.
  • I’m an avid Skullgirls fighting game player and you can see me streaming my tournaments most weekends.

If you’d like to reach out to me for whatever reason, please feel free to use the contact form, or hop into my discord server where I hang out all the time.

p.s.: In case you’re wondering about my username, it’s actually pronounced Kuro-One-Half. Kuro was inspired by the protagonist of the same name in the animated movie Tekkonkinkreet, and One Half came about as a subversion of the common string+integer username convention, by having a fraction instead. Initially it was actually 1/2, but most websites don’t allow special characters on usernames, so it became spelled out. :p
