I'm a writer and artist, trying - endlessly trying - to get better at both!
Currently to be found in the north west of England, living in a town in the middle of nowhere next to a sheep field

New Light Through A Long-Ruined Door
This is an acrylic painting of a ruined sheep-shed that I walk past a lot in the countryside behind Kirkby Stephen.
If you want to watch a time-lapse vid of it being painted, check it out here -

Cumbrian Macaw
One of the macaw parrots that habitually fly around the town of Kirkby Stephen in the north west of England.
Painted in acrylics. Tried to make the wings and tail look as if they're in motion and maybe a little out of focus - not sure it worked though, kinda just looks a bit messy. I might have tried reworking it but I was a bit sick of faffing with it by that point.
Not sure why I did the rainbow circles for the background, just felt right. They were a pain in the arse though.

If you want to see a time lapse vid of it getting painted, go here -

Distant Skies
Brush and ink doodle of an alien landscape, with a healthy dose of inspiration from the No Man's Sky game.

Discovered that the top on my bottle of ink was not as secure as I thought it was. 
Managed to create this out of the mess it made of the paper in my bag that it leaked over, the raven-phoenix rising from the dark depths of the Inkpocalypse on wings of ebon-night...or something.

Spider-Woman portrait - copy of Jeff Dekal's work
I fell in love with this awesome watercolour portrait of Spider-Woman by Jeff Dekal (…), who's done work for Marvel and DC, so I decided to try and emulate it.
Obviously not as good as the original but I'm quite pleased with how it turned out!
Done with a Winsor Newton travel set




Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

Hey there, internet person.
I've decided that it's about time I tried to get past my insecurities, get some confidence, and start offering commissions. Also I need money. I mean, like I could really do with some cash - it's amazing how motivating that can be.
Here's a list of prices and what I'll do (TLDR pretty much anything within legal reason) - 
Commission Info! by BigAlien
Honestly, I had no real idea what prices to go for as they seem to vary wildly across the site so I mostly just plucked these figures out of thin air.
If you've any advice, criticism, or you think I've priced things too high (or too low) then please tell me - I need all the help I can get.
