Doe-eyed damsels and cold, hard steel have never looked more beguiling than under the tender mercies of an old master of modern anime known simply as Kuratch!. While honoring the time-tested foundations of this noble cartoon art, he’s deftly applied the latest painterly techniques and cutting edge technology, earning a position at the pinnacle of his chosen genre.
A theme featured frequently in Kuratch!’s portfolio is lovingly-crafted fetish costumes, including tight battle harnesses, improbable armor, and mechanized maid uniforms. Catgirls, doggirls and cyborgs can also be seen, but even these extreme extravagances are rendered in meticulous detail.
The hybridization of painterly techniques, incredible detailing, and wild fantasy and science fiction themes is fully realized, and consistently appealing when executed by this exceptional artist.
