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.

Thanks a lot! The sword was the one bit where there was a lot of back-and-forthing on the specifics with the game designer :)
