G'day, mate!


The artists of these Magnificent pieces of art are amazing, so check them out. ^^


Not quite what I expected... by Matakoura
Light's Wonderful Secret by Matakoura
I'm trying this widget out, and I guess I'll see how it goes....Hey, so I'm a poor student. :D If you want to pay for commissions, I'm happy to do them! (It helps me pay for University and art stuff!) 


Wee Scunners by Matakoura
Wee Scunners
Picture a towering, crumbling, ancient castle by a loch in the highlands of Scotland – and one girl, the last descendent of the Bridlen clan, the last custodian of the family estates.
Sick of leaking rooms and thoroughly fed up with her own company, Grizel Bridlen decides to sell her ancestral family home to the state and go forge a new identity for herself out in the world – but she steps out of the front door and under the wheels of the moving truck.

She wakes up to discover that no Bridlen has ever moved on after death – they all haunt the one (rather small) castle. And that, as a ghost, she too is stuck there. However, when a handsome young writer arrives Grizel hatches a plan to escape her mad family and the stifling centuries that await.

The only problem is that something really, really doesn’t want her to leave.

This is a new comic I'm starting alongside Invicta, called Wee Scunners. Think of it as a ghost story with punk rock. 

I want to really experiment with texture and lighting in this comic and so for that reason I'm going to be using ball jointed dolls, 3D printing their heads, and hand-making all the props, clothes and scenery. It's gonna be fun! This is a photo of the main character's outfit.

However, I don't currently have enough moolah ($) to make it, so I was thinking of starting a KICKSTARTER. What do you guys think?
