My Bio

I am an aspiring game developer and artist from Ireland, but currently based in Spain. Despite the age of this account, I only started learning to draw and paint in earnest in October 2015, mainly with the goal of improving my game art. However, I found I really enjoyed traditional media and now I do a mix of drawing media, pastel, acrylic and oil painting, digital painting and pixel art.

My goals over the next while are to learn to draw the human form with less direct reliance on references, improve my use of colour, and then execute designs that are more original and surreal than I have been managing up to now.

I made this pixel art animation a couple of weeks ago. I did the design and animation of the separate components in Pyxel edit, and brought them together in Godot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PqFIOkhUSk Here also is the timelapse of the process. It's a long one! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-AyVe297fA

I'm not a big fan of Black Friday, but if you want to support my creative work, or have been undecided about buying a print, now is a good time because there are deals everywhere. Details below... RedBubble have up to 60% off with the code CYBERDEALS. They print on all sorts, including apparel, homewares, and wall art. Displate print metal posters exclusively, and plant a tree for every one sold. A good option if you are after wall art. Buy 1-2 Posters get 33% OFF, 3-4 get 37% OFF, 5+ get 41% OFF Use the code BLACK at checkout InPRNT are offering 15% off and free shipping with the code THANKFUL. Use the code IVCBJG as well for an extra 10% off. They do art prints, including framed and acrylic mounted, and canvas prints. Society6 have 30% off plus free shipping (with some exceptions, apparently). They print on all sorts. Pixels.com have 25% off all wall art. I don't have as many designs there as other places, but if you like one of them you might get a bargoon.
