Austen Mengler
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
Hey there, I'm Austen Mengler - a concept artist and illustrator from Perth, Australia who's always loved drawing monsters!

Since 2010 I've been working freelance on a variety of international projects, from concept art for film & game productions, to album artwork, comic and graphic novel work. I've also been developing my own IP Projects EXECUTION, My Shadows & SCARY SKETCHES. Other things that keep me busy are exhibiting at conventions around Australia & making art videos and tutorials for my YouTube Channel, where you can find a lot more info about my process. If you have a business inquiry or question feel free to message or email me, and you can also check out my FAQ for more information.

Thanks for stopping by and play nice with the monsters!
(Also thanks so much for the ongoing support, every comment and favourite is greatly appreciated!)

Photoshop Brushes - Free Download


Follow the link to download my brush pack, accumulated over the years from many other artists on deviantART. Also remember that custom brushes and textures are just another tool to speed up your process. Using these specific brushes or relying on them won’t make you a better artist overnight - you still need to do a lot of practise and study the fundamentals too.

Try them out and see which ones work for you. You only really need a good 3-5 brushes for the majority of the drawing, rendering and painting, and then the rest are more to add variety and special effects (that’s my approach anyway). Follow the key to see which ones I use the most and for more descriptions of which are which. Hope they’re useful and remember to have fun!

Friends, Inspirations & Influences


Journal History

- Studies -

To show how important continuous study is and hopefully inspire you to do the same, I'll be uploading as many life drawings, studies and sketches into my "Scraps" section of my gallery here:…

Apart from attending live life drawing sessions, I use the sites and to practise, remembering that it's better to do half an hour of study every day than it is to do a lot every so often.

Hey, it was nice to meet you on Saturday at Brisbane's Oz Comic Con.
First time I've come across you at an event, I was dressed as Han Solo.
I hope you had an awesome day and continued to meet fans of your work over the weekend at the convention.
