My Bio
Art vs Artist

I am temporarily CLOSED for commissions! Please see my journal for more information.


*****


I'm 35 years old, happily married, with a B.Sc in animal biology. I'm an illustrator who prefers work with animal and/or fantasy elements - I use primarily digital media but also some traditional, and focus on realistic and semi-realistic paintings as well as a few varieties of lineart-based art. I largely worked freelance, but now am the lead artist for Endless Realms, a D&D-like pen and paper RPG currently in development.


As for hobbies, I am a huge music enthusiast. I am a classically trained pianist and aspiring teacher, although recent and not-so-recent life events have caused me to fall tragically out of practice. I love listening to music and almost always enjoy finding new and unusual instruments, songs, genres and artists - I collect music not just of my own tastes, but also work that I find noteworthy, unique or extraordinarily different, and I'd like to think I have at least one or two examples of any major musical genre represented in my collection.


I also love food - trying new things and appreciating the foods I like is a simple undeniable pleasure for me. I never really cooked much when I was young, but have since really grown to enjoy it. Like my musical tastes, I potentially like just about anything - it all depends on how it's done.


I'm also pretty clearly a nerd. Besides generally enjoying things like science and philosophy (and being a huge music nerd, as previously mentioned), I love good science fiction, fantasy, and character/world-building, and enthusiastically but infrequently get the chance to practice archery and poi. I also enjoy a number of games, from video games to tabletop to cards to PnP RPGs, but I grew up primarily with video games - favourites include the old X-Wing/TIE Fighter series, RPGs like Suikoden, ChronoTrigger and Super Mario RPG, stealth games like Metal Gear Solid, and music games like DDR, Guitar Hero, Osu and Audiosurf.


I also theoretically enjoy writing, although I have much more of a love/hate relationship with it. While I've never quite gotten the hang of creating good narrative flow, I do enjoy world building and have created an extensive universe called The Tripartitus.

I thought I'd ask you, since you would know: are there blood mages in "Endless Realms"?

Haha, actually, I *wouldn't* know - I'm not privvy to the lore and don't have copies of the books. I don't think so?


My story does, though.

Ooh. What's your story?

The Tripartitus, a fantasy story I've been working on for years and years - I don't really have any current writing posted online, though https://www.deviantart.com/jocarra/gallery/29630282/the-tripartitus

Hey, I just found your gallery, and this "Endless Realms" stuff looks pretty cool. I will watch for more, and also so I can come look at it later.

Hey, cheers! Appreciated :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

In my most honest opinion

You're 1 OF THE BEST ARTISTS ON HERE! Trophy-1
