Rai-Kay's Profile Picture
Rachel Perciphone
Artist | Student | Digital Art
United States
My name is Rachel and I'm currently an art student, majoring in Illustration! In only a couple of months I will graduate and start, officially, pursuing professional freelance work. In the mean time, I work as a graphic designer at a comic book publisher and I fiddle with a bunch of things, always seeking new challenges and knowing that there is always room to improve! :)

This year, I am proud to announce that I have won a place in the Society of Illustrator's annual student exhibition, which will go up in May! I will upload that winning piece, along with the other 6 works in my Senior Thesis project, in April 2014. :)

I primarily work digitally, using a Wacom tablet and Adobe Photoshop CS6 or Corel Painter 12. I also enjoy traditional media, especially pencil/ink drawing and oil painting (sometimes acrylics).

My main artistic interests are cover/pinup art and character design.

Hm… I'm not sure what inspired the sudden accent.  But, as usual, here is my "next thousand views update".  My view count has been rather sluggish recently, but to no surprise because I have not really updated my DA gallery in quite a while.  But trust me!  I've been working really hard on my thesis project for school for the past…. going on 6 months.  And my senior show is in less than two months!!  I chose not to release any of my thesis works until the end of April, but you can be sure to expect some pretty cool things coming from my account starting at that time!  I've been trying to work on things on the side but…clearly it hasn't worked out :P

Exciting news: I'm extremely happy to announce that I am one of the 329 winners (out of 9,000 entries) for the Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Competition!!  My winning work will be on display in New York City at the Society's gallery in May!  Whether or not I won any cash prizes is not yet determined…  But, I am just excited to be in the show and very happy for my other two buddies who also won a spot in the show!

In other good news, my work at Dynamite is going very well.  I'm excited to be full time after I graduate; I really love all my co-workers and seem to have found quite a comfortable place within the office.  The "real world" seems intimidating at times, but it's going to be very cool all the same.  On the side I have also been designing a logo for an office-team within Comcast, which is also pretty nifty.  I'm getting kind of pumped about my most recent designs for them and am hoping they like what I came up with!

And some people have this strange interest in the TV I've been watching recently…which would be Doctor Who.  I'm almost done with all the episodes they offer on Netflix and thus far (spoiler alerts?) I'm super bummed about what happened to Donna (she's been my favorite companion thus far because I'm kind of over the whole "romance" thing), I'm sad about Rose but happy at the same time because that beach scene was way too sweet, and… the 9th Doctor will always have a special place in my heart because I love that actor but… the 10th Doctor grew on me for sure!  We will see what kind of opinion I formulate about the 11th Doctor but…with Rose and Donna gone and River entering the picture, I can completely feel a need for some change.


Anyway. I'm sorry I haven't been updating my work very much, but I think you will understand once I've completed my thesis and am ready to reveal!

Thank you for all the love & support!

You are very welcome :D Thank you for providing wonderful stock/reference photos!
Your Harley quinn dosen't take into account the fact that she is absolutely fucking loopy.Completely and violently insane. Even the joker is a little bit scared of her. That' why he likes her, it turns him on. By the way, you have a great mouth.

I do wish you had posted this on my actual piece instead of my profile… but I thank you for your thoughts!  I feel as though I captured the obsessive tendencies of the character in a fun way for the pin-up, though I can understand liking a darker, more violent portrayal.  I can see how this could look more insane.  Thank you for the feedback!  Maybe someday when I have more time I will make another Harley piece and try to combine the insane and sweetheart/fun elements more.
Yes, that's exactly right. It's the combination of insane and sweetheart that some men find so dangerously  intriguing. It's all in the eyes. Sorry that I marred your otherwise perfect profile.
