Welcome to my DA account, feel free to go through my work! I am a pretty chilled guy, super interested in digital art despite being a trained architect. I'm a major fan of people with a visual imagination so odds are since you on this site we will get along :D. I like to challenge myself so its rare for me to stick with a particular pattern of work. If you have an idea in your head, especially OC based I am happy to try it out at very standard commision prices.

I try keep it classy but have been known to make exceptions. essentially I just enjoy working out concepts and ideas. If you like my work and want me to do some commission pieces for you just send me a NOTE. heck even if you aren't looking for new artwork and just wanna make a friend I'd be glad to get a note from you anyway!

:The client list so far:

Personal Quote: "I see..."

It's been a while, hasn't it? Well, I'm settled enough in my new home, time to scrap together some sort of resurrection. 'Well, it's about time' I hear you say? Dammit, you're right!

So I turned to Pen and paper inspired by some great artists like Arthur Adams, Ryan Ottley, and Mark Morales. As a result of this and a somewhat flexible schedule, I participated in INKtober 2017! 31 pen and ink drawings later I'm contemplating developing a set of Prints. More on that later...

Now I'm starting a literature project. I'm working up articles where I share motivations, ideas, project resources, updates and fantasy art reviews. So blogging, kinda.

I hope to get back to digital soon however when given Lemons use the citric acid to make fruit batteries. Here's a fairly decent Shadaan reboot.

Please visit the page at @ shdn_studios on Instagram for a steady artwork feed. You'll find the Malazan day to day Inktober submissions as well as a bunch of Worm based artwork and the odd random.

Please go right ahead and give me a shout if you're interested in more of this Ink-based artwork or would like me to try something else? Let me hear you guys out for a change, thanks.

I liked it, did something loosely similar in art class a few years back, I appreciate the concept! Good to know others out there think along common lines :) keep at!

Hi Shadaan!

I know this might be a long shot, but I have this superhero OC named Enforcer whose body happens to be primarily made of cosmic dust, and I've been trying to find someone willing to draw him floating in space!

You think you can give it a shot?
