My Bio

My name is Benney. I'm 22 years old and have been going to MIAD since 2018. I am primarily an illustrator and love to work with animal-based characters.

I use a Wacom Cintiq 13HD and CLIP STUDIO PAINT EX. The most influential sources in my art more are Art Nouveau, 19th Century Animaliers, 20th Century American Illustrators, and Asian Cultures like Japan and China.

Hey guys, Benjamin here! I just wanted to make a short status update on why my name is suddenly changed. Well the plain and simple reason is, I was thinking about changing it for a while now. All of my art platforms are using my real name because I want my name to be my brand, and it makes it a lot easier for people to know me as me than as 10 different usernames. Nothing is gonna be changing at all with the page or anything, just wanted to use the 1 month of Core I purchased to finally make the change. Hope you guys are having a good day, and I'll see you with the next post!

after getting back into Destiny 2, i decided about what the perks for Devil of Mars would be. i just posted it in the comments section of it.

aside from that, I am glad to see you have expanded from destiny 2 weapon concepts. I can only imagine how much work that had to be.

Hi, did you make this concept? I'd love to make it in 3D!

Yeah I did.


It's one of the older ones from Destiny 1 times, but should still work if you want to do a recreation.

So this is a custom weapon that I made for D1 (or at least one of them) and decided to submit it despite the series being ended. Honestly, I just want to share this thing with other people. The Description is an actual haiku that I wrote specifically for this creation, and the Lore is also a fully custom short story for it as well. The person, Gennosuke, is an OC of mine, too.

The Haiku

Description:
“Spring only comes in brief,

When ice melts and petals burst,

Only to fade again.”


Exotic Fusion Rifle - Linear variant Arc elemental (special weapon)

Looks like the “Praetorian Foil” with extended and reinforced barrel, but in solid white and covered in fine sakura filigree design


Row One, Sights: Steadyhand IS - Focus Lens FLA5 - Red Dot-OES

Row Two, Weapon Upgrades I: Performance Bonus - Rangefinder

Row Three, Weapon Upgrades II: Feeding Frenzy - Metal Detector

Exotic perk, “Nature’s Beauty”: Every enemy you kill has a chance to resurrect for 30 seconds and go berserk, rapidly attacking other enemies. (usually Thralls or Dregs)


Lore: When a young Samurai took a stroll in the mountain pass, he found trees that were not green like the oak, or red like the maple, but pink as the sunset clouds, and he felt a need to write. The words poured from his soul to his heart, from his heart into his arm, and from there to the brush, and ink, and paper. When he finished the scroll, he saw it was not just full of words but beautiful artwork as well. A man in Lord’s armor came upon him then, and upon seeing the scroll fell deeply in love with the masterpiece, but was turned away when he asked for a price. In a rage, the lord drew his weapon and cut the young Samurai down where he stood. Blood flew. It stained the scroll and ruined it beyond recognition, save for one poem: The Haiku.

- Gennosuke, Warlock Disciple of Praedyth.
