My Bio
I am a normal (or maybe not so normal) guy who loves monsters, aliens, bizarre biology, anthropomorphic/funny animals and weird/dark things.
With these interests, I use my imagination and drawing skills to produce weird creatures and cute/ funny/cool-looking anthro-animals. As all people have ambitions, I have my own ambitions about my creativity.
When I am in the mood, I always try to think outside-the-box when I´m going to design some creatures. I always try to create the most mind-blowingly bizarre biologies, morphologies, psychologies ever when I’m designing aliens (I am sick of those anthropomorphic imagination-lacking humanoids) and regarding monsters/creatures I just want to make them look as strange and cool as possible.

Higher ambitions is world-building a science-fiction “universe”. I have tried many different stories/settings but my current vision is “Worlds”. It is about how the Terrans (earthlings) had spread beyond their solar system and created/terraformed several worlds and colonized them. These worlds are very diverse as they (thanks to genetic/biological engineering) are populated by many different creatures and sophonts which have adapted to each world’s specific conditions. Even if I have humans in my universe, I focus more on the uplifted animals and splices they have created (I LOVE anthros). “Worlds” is supposed to be “hard sci-fi” but as I want to give my universe a more fantastic fantasy-feeling, I incorporate magic/paranormal elements and turn them into (more or less) plausible sci-fi stuff. These things include transapient “deities”, mind-uploaded “ghosts” and nanotech-based telepathy.
The purpose with “Worlds” is creating a universe that is not like most other sci-fi worlds, a place that is bizarre and fantastic as it is intriguing with its many concepts and diverse worlds and beings.

Writing lyrics is another project I have. Listening to electronic music all day (it is like drugs to me); I want to create my own awesome music to fill my own and other people’s ears. But before I can produce music, I practice with writing song lyrics (and rhyming when I am in the mood). When it is about the theme of my songs, it is dark and aggressive but I hope that I eventually will write something light-hearted and not so very dark. Currently I am influenced/inspired by the beautiful synth melodies and spooky-ness of “God Module”, the gloomy haunting atmosphere of “Grendel’s” first album, the aggressive awesomeness of “Imperative Reaction’s” three latest albums, rock like “Powerman 5000”, twisted psytrance like “Xenomorph” and Metroid soundtracks.

Favourite movie/TV character: The Grinch played by Jim Carrey, Preed from "Titan A.E", Lampy and Radio, Donnie Darko and Frank, Nostalgia Critic, Morph and Chas, Rick Sanchez.

Personal Quote: Of all known monsters of this universe, MAN is the worst one on Earth!

My anthro space sci-fi worldbuilding "Worlds", which I have put on hiatus for some time, might get a resurgence. I have a much clearer idea what I want to do with this cosmic sandbox including trying making to make a FATE rpg setting for it. The first thing I´m gonna do is change the title to something with more flair: Amazon B.E. Ill share more information on its art page.

Hi, fellows. I have read some bad news I feel like I can’t keep to myself because this concerns everyone. It breaks my heart that that something common as increased meat/leather-consumption and mining is what causes the deliberate burning of the Amazon, the so called ’lungs of the world’. The rainforest is crucial to Earth’s biosphere as it absorbs 17 percent of the worlds carbon dioxide and produces 20 percent of the oxygen we breathe. In addition to loss of biodiversity and the forests indigenous tribes being threatened, the destruction of the Amazon would mean more carbon dioxide heating up the planet, spreading wa

Thank you for all the faves.

Thanks!

What do you think about my Happy Ness fan project?

Well, groups like yours are PART of the reason I draw obscure characters---I mean, groups need something to show and collect, right?

So, yes, I approve of the concept. :3

I’m happy you liked it.

thank you for fav (:

Happy holidays, Tektalox!
