You can find me here, on Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram, as well as Ko-fi as DeathMcHandsome! I generally post more finished pieces here, but you can watch my sketching process daily on those other sites.
Thanks as always for stopping by here. I've been on and off this site in particular, but this community has remained the tightest and most inspiring of all.



Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART


Nothing profound, just wanted to draw more of the inspiring character designs from Darkest Dungen.
I saw a tweet by their creator- something about wanting to design something horrible and attractive at once- and boy did they achieve it.
Dark God Boss Rush p.2: This Time it's Personal
Sketched scene from last week's DnD, where my character let her nemesis, the Dark God of Rot, free AGAIN by playing into his hands ;-;
Wanted to break in my new fountain pen with a sketch of the BAE... I mean the Butcher.
Harvesting the faces of the fearful for his arts and crafts.
"You have nothing to fear, my friends. The beast is not for you."
Sketching all of these designs gives me so much life...
Seeker of Secrets

"Can't stand the thought of cutting her down? How positively naive of you..."
A workday drawing from last week that got out of hand. I somehow missed this Lance McDonald cut content vid from the summer that reveals other possibilities of how Maria's death in the Nightmare could have played out. After watching it, I regret that we did not see this version of the game! Most cut content is cut for good reason, whether mechanical or storytelling; but I actually feel that Simon's quest and motivations, as well as his tragic death, would have been better fulfilled and more fulfilling if he had had the chance to see things through himself :0 
I had my own emotional reaction to his request and to Maria upon meeting her, but giving the player the option to interact with her one of several ways could definitely have created some serious 'roleplaying' opportunities, and drive home how invested in you all the Old Hunters NPCs are. I guess a lot must have been lost when the two planned DLCs were sandwiched into one :p
I just felt so inspired to draw him after this, one of my favorite characters in the narrative and a true friend! 

I know, I know. I've done this like a billion times. But this time it's personal.
I'm trying to remember why I stopped using this site as much. I think I found it difficult to justify, given the art I've been making. I spend most of my time in my sketchbook, so an interface like this, which is really so professional and beautiful looking, seemed better than the art I was making for it! So I migrated to tumblr, pouring my pages out there for like no one to see. Instagram, too, was a place I felt more comfortable being just... mediocre, you know?
But I think I've evolved in confidence since then, and this place has evolved in ease-of-use and functionality. There's never been a better time to hop on back, especially given how many amazing friends I still see here supporting me and each other. Bless you all.
I'm still trying to decide what I will include here. I think I would go crazy posting and reposting and cross-posting everything from my blog here every day. I may save this for a more retrospective look of things, more like my personal website. But we'll see as time rolls on how much patience I have for bouncing back and forth! I'm really excited to try and be active again, this place has given me so many great experiences.
Thank you all for listening. Hopefully we can catch up in the coming months!

I've just figured out who you are. We used to draw stuff on Ragol forums a few lifetimes ago.
Your ballpoint pen drawings are seriously amazing!
