AKB48: Isohara Kyoka - Bokura no Kizuna by Sumo0172
AKB48: Isohara Kyoka - Bokura no Kizuna
Kyoka Isohara was promoted to SKE48's Team E on December 6, 2010. On April 13, 2013 during SKE48 Team Shuffle she was Transferred to Team S. On February 24, 2014 at AKB48 Group Daisokaku Matsuri she was transferred back to Team S.

When you meet Kyon you feel a bond. Even if only for the brief connection of a handshake, you feel it. She holds your hand, looks you in the eyes, smiles and helps you know "At this moment we share life, this will always be our bond".

I am self taught artist but I did study graphic communications at the University of Southern Mississippi. My preferred medium is illustration with pencil being my preferred media, namely the Pentel CLiCK 0.5 PD275 JAPAN 9G Mechanical Pencil. I also paint and sculpt when the muse takes me. I am here on deviantART to share my work but also to be inspired by my fellow artists.

Thank you so much. I really appreciate you taking the time and telling me. To hear how much people like my work means a lot to me. The little "cat" dragon is a little character I'm working on named Little Tiger. He is gonna become a constant in many of my fantasy artworks.

Thank you again, I will do my best

I try to take the time to encourage other artists to keep working on their craft because I know it can be discouraging sometimes. Everyone deserves a little pep talk from time to time! He seems like a great character, looking at the picture he seems very curious, maybe you should do a complete story about him sometime?

You're very welcome
