My Bio

My Name is Robert Powell. I am a South African born concept artist and illustrator that currently resides in Canada. Since I was young I have had this fascination with animals whether they be those that live with us today, those who have lived in the past or those that exist only within our imaginations. As such I have developed into a specialist in Creature Design and have a passion for creating aliens, monsters and beasties of all shapes and sizes.

Currently available for Commissions, send me a note or contact me through other social media platforms.

Lately I've been getting a lot of requests for doing commissions from people on the site. I am appreciative to those of you who would consider me to bring your ideas to fruition and I am grateful that people are enjoying my art. Currently I'm fairly busy with various non-art related responsibilities in life so I don't have as much time to put into commission work as I'd like to. Which is why for a time I have been turning down these requests. However keeping everything in consideration, I've been contemplating these requests as well as the possibility of doing commission work for potential clients. I have also been researching and revising my pricing and rates for the possibility of commission work if I were to take on such projects, although there would be no set rates since pricing would have to be case by case depending on the project. With that said, for the time being I am indeed going to be making myself available for doing commission work. So for those who are interested, you
