Who is Akira G
-Akira- is an artist, and at one time a Professional Illustrator.
He started drawing in graphite from a very young age and continued refining his talent ever since.
Currently he has been working to develop his style in digital media for the last 3 to 4 years at the time of this writing.
Although he doesn't plan on using his talents for a living at this time, he does enjoy creating anthropomorphic art. Most of his public work can be found at his Fur Affinity page.
He has always been fascinated by mythological creatures and the creativity in the stories surrounding them. However he has always been drawn to the Gryphon since it has such a versatile range, in not only history and mythology but in the various traits that are associated with it. He never has settled on how it should look like as seen with more traditionally created fursonas.
This being because he uses it in his drawings and has felt it allows him the versatility to make it fit character to the work easier.
