Hi there! Barbarian-JK is my artist pen name, and my real name is Alexander. Nice to meet you! ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
I'm a self-taught anime-style illustrator and a writer, and my dream is to one day publish his original stories. As you can see, I'm still following my own path of learning and honing my own art style. I always try to learn more and more by looking at the works of my favourite Japanese artists.
My source of inspiration for drawing and writing comes from listening to JRPG game soundtracks, which help me immerse in different worlds of imagination and fantasy. My current favourite soundtracks were done by the GUST Sound Team, and my favourite singer is Haruka Shimotsuki, who also worked with the GUST team in series such as Ar Tonelico and Atelier. And I'd like to mention Akiko Shikata and Noriko Mitose, who also worked for Ar Tonelico. They're awesome! Aside from this, I also enjoy listening to artists of traditional Peruvian music such as Lucho Quequezana, who masterfuly uses several classical Andean instruments and Edith Ramos, who sings in a way that revives the classic feeling that the traditional music from my country has.
My favourite writer is Tolkien, who created the High Fantasy genre as we know it today (and who hasn't been surpassed by anyone yet, in my opinion).
Other random data about me:
I'm shy in real life, but I can be very outgoing when I feel there's enough confidence with a friend. I can't live without chocolates, ice-creams, Dr. Pepper, Coca Cola and a fruit from my homeland called Chirimoya (︶ω︶)
I have a special character called Mina-chan, who for some reason I love to draw!
I must admit I like ecchi to an extent, as long as the work has a good quality, so don't be surprised if I make that type of work from time to time, or to see them among my favourited works.
I hope you like my gallery ヾ(｡･ω･｡)
