Hey everyone, I'll be at booth #264 at the Denver Comic Con on June 15-17! If you’re in the area come by and see me, don’t be shy! I’ll have all three of my books for sale, along with tons of fan-art anatomy posters and other goodies!
I’m always excited to meet fans and fellow artists.
If you’ve got time we can hang out and talk about life and stuff….
I don't know...
It's not like I like you or anything! (*゚ー゚*) BAKA! 

Stay awesome,
Chris

P.S. We could always play some co-op games. I'm terrible at them, but so charming you won't mind.

Hey everyone, 
I've really been neglecting my social media outlets over the past few months, and Deviant Art especially has fallen by the wayside. But that's all about to change! Right now I'm working on several projects that will come to fruition over the next year. 

- I'm doing a full monster manual for a pathfinder publisher (who has to remain nameless for now). 
- I'm working on two personal science fiction books, one that pays homage to classic godzilla and kaiju movies and another in the vein of more contemporary scifi extraterrestrial adventures! 
- Finally, I'm hoping to publish/kickstart several smaller books on fictional species like werewolves, mermaids, and dragons. 

If you want to keep up with these projects check out my
Instagram- @TopherStoll

I'll do my best to keep everyone abridged as new art and updates come along, as well as listen to fan suggestions and preferences as the work progresses.

Here's to a happy new year. 

Stay awesome, 
Chris

Did it baby by Christopher-Stoll


Pokemon Anatomy and Fictional Biology

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 18, 2017, 2:22 PM


I've been getting a lot of requests to do some dissections (pun intended) of my Pokémon biology process, philosophy, and techniques and talk more generally about biology and its relation to design. 
So here's my panel talk at the 2017 Denver AnomalyCon! It's about an hour long and breaks down my principles of design while laying out the inspiration for some of my Pokémon images. 

Don't worry, the door shuts very quickly and improves the audio dramatically. 
If you want to skip the preamble and jump right into the physiological stuff you should go right to the 4 min 25 second mark.

The final PokéNatomy book is heading to the printers before the end of the month, so expect more Pokémon biology on my page soon! 

-Chris

Hey everyone,
The PokéNatomy book is nearly finished, and I've dedicated myself full-time to editing, tweaking, and fine-tuning the project.
The last major thing that I need is a finalized cover for the embossed Leatherbound Edition, and I think I've got to outsource that particular work in order to meet my deadlines.
So as of RIGHT NOW, I'm currently looking for artists to hire.
Whoever ends up working with me will have their work displayed on most popular edition of this anatomical tome, get their work prominently credited in the book, will receive a free copy of the leatherbound PokéNatomy book, and will (of course) be well paid for their time and effort.

The cover itself is 8"x10" in size, and I need someone who can do symmetrical black and white patterns that are evocative of vintage book covers.
Here's the work I did on the Feminomicon cover to demonstrate what I mean.
Blankfemcover by Christopher-Stoll

If you are interested or know someone who can do this sort of work, please send me an email at- stollart@icloud.com
or message me via Deviant Art!
Please let me know what your rates are, and if you charge per hour, and I'll give you more information about the project upon contact.

Thanks,
Chris
Hey all you people!! :D
I'll be at AnomalyCon this March 17th-19th in Denver Colorado! I'm sitting in on several panels with some incredibly creative people, as well as giving talks on Creature Design, Imposter Syndrome, and Horror-Art.

I've been known to grant magical world-altering wishes to people who come by my booth, but will mostly likely just give you a free little plastic Pokémon figurine and talk to you for 45 minutes about art.
Still, you should come say hi!

Much love,
Chris
Hey everyone,

As many of you are aware, I'm currently working on publishing a full book of Pokémon anatomy art! The project was successfully Kickstarted, and is currently scheduled to ship in late spring 2017! Until recently I was publishing full Pokémon anatomy entries here on my DA profile, but unfortunately I'm going to have to stop. The formatting and content for these full images...

Pikachu Anatomy- Pokedex Entry by Christopher-Stoll

Is different enough from the pages of the final book that it forces me to do a lot of extra formatting and editing. So no more full PokéNatomy Pokédex entries for the foreseeable future. It's too much of a drain on my resources, and I'm already pulling 15 hour workdays trying to get this book out on time (and ensuring that it's incredible)!

There is a bright side, however!! While working on the book I will continue to share the art itself (and basically anything else that doesn't require extra editing).

Dratini Anatomy by Christopher-Stoll
So stay tuned, there's still dozens and dozens of new Pokémon on their way.
Magmar Anatomy by Christopher-Stoll
The book itself is still currently in production (obviously) but is NOW AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER
If you have any questions feel free to ask them in the comments!

I appreciate everyone's patience and support!
Much love, and stay awesome,
Chris
I will be attending the 2016 Nerd Year's Eve Event December 29th through January 1st at 400 N Olive St, Dallas, TX!!

You can find me selling books, posters, and PokéNatomy pre-orders at Multiverse Books in booth C5! I'll have erected a full sized Pokémon GO Poké-stop, so keep an eye out!

I hope you'll stop by to exchange prolonged dialogue and strained eye-contact! :D
Also Stan Lee will be there!!

Much love,

Now AVAILABLE
Eq0Ssro-1 by Christopher-Stoll

The mind-bending monsters in this book include:

  • Blood sucking Penanggalan, flying severed heads with trailing intestines that glow and glitter like fireflies.
  • Mysterious Yuki Onna, whose transparent skin and piercing eyes lure men to freeze in isolated Japanese mountain ranges.
  • The monstrous Scylla, a sea creature who dwells in narrow straits and takes the lives of unwary seamen with her six ravenous heads.
  • Pitiless Succubus, sexually aggressive demons that drain the living of their life force.
  • The obsidian butterfly Itzpapalotl, a fearsome skeletal warrior goddess who rules over the paradise world of Tamoanchan.
 And dozens more, for a grand total of more than fifty unique creatures!!

Xd74ku8 by Christopher-Stoll
It's a great coffee table art book for anyone who loves mythology, monsters, women, and fantasy art! A collection that focuses on diversity and female empowerment while avoiding the longstanding scifi-fantasy tradition of shallow sexual titillation.
