Caden Reid
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
I am a freelance artist from Dublin, Ireland who studied at Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology. My preferred medium is charcoal but I also work with oil paint, pen and ink, coloured pencil, and photography.

I have done album covers for black metal bands including Elysian Blaze, Lyrinx, Niflheim, and Sombres Forêts. While the work I do presently still reflects that style, most noticeably my preference for near monochrome colour pallets, I usually draw from themes and subject matter that resonate with me on a more personal level.

My artwork often serves as a creative outlet for aspects of my inner world which I attempt to translate into the language of imagery. Because of this I am usually more attracted to creating atmosphere and mood in my artwork than concentrating on detail and realism.

Much obliged.

Do you take requests, kind sir?
CadenReid Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I am afraid that I would have to say no. When I first began online I was doing requests (mostly album covers) and not only did I discover that I could not keep up with them, but that having deadlines hanging over me is stressful and quite negatively impacts my work. Perhaps more importantly, I also found that once I did one or two thing that many people liked, it quickly became all anyone ever wanted me to do, and that gets boring very quickly.

Now, that said, I am fully open to suggestions that people have of things that they would like to see (even if it is more of the same), just understand that I am an absolutely terrible procrastinator (I have about ten unfinished projects from over the past few years that have yet to see the light of day on DeviantArt - something I intend to finally remedy this coming year), so, even if I do like an idea that someone suggests, it may be a very very long time before I actually act on that inspiration.

My apologies.
