A special heartfelt sincere welcome to any who have stumbled on this art gallery on purpose or accident. My name is Shad brooks. I consider myself a comic/graphic/commercial artist and writer from Australia. My specialty is comic book art and my favorite genres are medieval fantasy (a lot inspired by dungeons and dragons), superheros and martial arts. Many if not all my artworks are of my books and stories. If you're interested in watching some commentaries of my art as well as some other nerdy stuff, feel free to visit my YouTube Channel: What classifies something as art is self expression and in

Hey Shad! Just want to show you that I made my own Shword. Or as I call it, a Cavorite Kite Sword. Cavorite being a metal found in the scifi novel, First Men in the Moon by H.G.Wells that has anti-gravity properties. Though with my version, another, stronger metal had to be mixed in during the forging process due to weapons made of pure cavorite are more like an aluminum prop sword and can easily bend when you hit something with it hard enough as well as having negative gravitational mass which means that they can easily float away if you don't secure them properly.

Open Source: Cavorite Kite Sword

Also I made a different kind of Kite Sword that is more on the fantastical side of things. In that it would probably make your head spin when you see it.

May I present, Urthona's Formula Blade.

OS: Urthona's Formula Blade

I know, this looks ridiculous. But hey, sometimes is not a matter of "Why?" it's more of a matter of "Why Not?"

Dear Shad

Will this work as a arming sword?

And wat do you think about the design of the sword?

It is star wars the old republic inspired (the blue bits on the blade is part of its ability to create plasma around the edge of the blade so it works and function like a lightsaber/Darksaber)

Metakros Blade V2

Well this has made my day, finding you on here, only after someone commented on one of my images "Red sonja - shadiversity" saying you were here on DA... the vids btw...

Hello fellow Australian, love your channel.

& your work I would like to let you know how much I aprecheat your work, your channel has relay helped me with my writing & your autopsy of a fight are brilliant.

I have just finished your Medieval weapons a Giant would use & i an applying it to my character, a Galieth.

Greetings Shad,

I'm a fan of your YouTube channel. Submitted for your approval, a drawing of a sword and dagger set I drew back in 2017:

Sword And Dagger Set

I'm watching your 08/29/2020 video on the Master Sword at this very moment! You're always PASSIONATE and ANALYTICAL at 100% MAXIMUM POWER!


Didn't know you were on DA til you mentioned it in that video. Btw, I'm "Judson Gaiden" on YT.

Edit/Note: Did you ever play Faxanadu on the NES?
