My Bio

Hello, my real name is Ian Denney, I am a cartoonist, graphic artist and Illustrator.

My artist talent started when I was in Middle school when I see my first comic book. When I was 17, My Little Pony and Studio Ghibli helped make my art style better. Now, I am doing art for school, myself, and later a career in animation and comic book illustration.

I am also on the autistic spectrum with high functionality. Which means, I can communicate but social interaction is slightly challenging. I can talk to other people at times but sometimes I find it better if people come up to me.

Artist Timeline:

2007- I read my first manga "Megaman: NT Warrior. I started drawing Pokémon, Mega Man, Bakugan, and Digimon.

2010- I watch my first Studio Ghibli movie "Secret world of Arrietty."

2013- I got my certification for Adobe Illustrator. Plus my graduation from high school. Also started watching My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

2014- Went to my first Brony convention and met Comic artist Tony Fleecs and Andy Price called BronyCon.

"WOW, You did my job!" -Tony Fleecs complementing my work.

2014-2015- I made my first complete My Little Pony comic "Once upon a dream."

2016- Graduated from Rockland Community College and got into a comic book school called the JOE KUBERT School.

2018- Tony Fleecs at BronyCon 2018 reccomemends me how to start in the comic book art field.

”Your a better colorist than my colorist.”-Tony Fleecs

2019- I sat as a third year at the Kubert School table at NY Comic Con for the FIRST time.

2020- I graduated from the Joe Kubert School.

Hi koolfrood, my name is Noah-Firebreath and I came to ask you about a Art Request, well here it is: I was wondering if you could do my two main characters in your art style (maybe you could do it in MLP movie style from 2017) please and thank you, here’s what they look like:

Noah Firebreath (revamp 7)
Breez Waterlow (revamp 7)

Noah's eye color: Red

Breez’s eye color: Blue

Info about Noah and Breez’s heights, lengths, and weights.


Also I want Noah Firebreath and Breez Waterlow together in one picture. Second I want full bodies of them. One last thing, Noah and Breez are Kaiju (Japanese word for Giant Beast).

here’s a link to know more about Kaiju: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaiju

Here’s a Image example of MLP movie style from 2017 which was drawn by MrRexyy846 to get a idea of what I’m talking about.


Watching the stars

One more thing, can you put Noah on the left side and put Breez on the right side of the picture, like this image example to get a idea of what I’m talking about.
