I know it’s super late, but I recently bought “The Search” comic series. Aww, it makes me miss the old Avatar series (maybe it’s time for a re-watch)I decided I’d do some fanart, but what I didn’t expect was as I drew each character, it made me think back to my friends in our Avatar cosplay group! Lots of love to all the amazing people I got to cosplay with, to this day it’s the most fun I’ve had in costume!

Because I still find Daleks strangely adorable for evil heartless killing machines. Which is your favourite?

That’s sweet but the best one is missing: PROCRASTINATE!

Yeah, I didn’t get around to painting that one.

This one’s a combination of wanting to paint lesser known fantasy creatures and finding a lovely set of watercolour brushes. Kirin (or Xirin) are mythical hoofed creatures, often with horns and scales, from East Asian cultures (Wikipedia link). When I was living in Japan, I remember being surprised to find that the Japanese name for giraffe came from the same source …so I snuck in a little giraffe print to my design.

I’m still on my semi-ukiyo-e-style binge, so here are the creatures and spirits of Ghibli as obake! Do you know all of them?

'Forest Creatures' Nursery mural!

I’ve been absent for a little while because I was busy painting a mural for my baby nephew’s nursery. The colours aren’t very good (since I took the photo in the evening once I finished it) but I’m pretty happy with how it worked out!

The room walls are a very light blue/green and the carpet (under the orange drop sheet) is a beautiful dark blue, so I came up with a forest type scene centred around a large oak tree. The main wall has most of the tree, and features a clever little fox, a curious yellow bird and a cheeky chipmunk!

The second side has a little family of owls representing the parents and the baby, and further along is a little wolf (that I took from one of my earlier artworks) and another little bird. The walls also have soft white clouds that I spray-painted before everything else.

It took forever to do, and everything was done by hand, and the grass and tree were murder on my spine, but all in all I’m pretty chuffed with the results!

D’aww, that’s so sweet!

no but the best part is how he got the name:
his name was originally “potatoes,” and his owner, willoughby bertie, told the stable lad who helped him to write the horse’s name on a feed bin. the boy misheard it as, literally “pot-eight-o’s” and wrote it with 8 o’s. bertie found it so funny that he kept that as the horses name.

This is the most beautiful horse-related story I’ve ever heard.

omg i am laughing so hard

'Stud career', Wikipedia? I think you mean… SPUD career.

It’s the last day of the Steam sales! Why is this important? Well, for those who don’t know me through DeviantArt, I’m the creative director (artist, writer & level designer) of a game called Freedom Fall.

It’s an indie story-driven platformer game, which is essentially a reverse-Rapunzel setting - the unwilling hero finds himself at the top of a prison tower that is ruled by a tiny, evil princess. Find out why you’re both there, why the princess leaves passive-aggressive graffiti everywhere and hopefully, find your freedom at the bottom of the tower.

It’s just $6.49 USD during the Steam sales (or $9.99 after that).

While I was in Sydney a couple of weeks ago, I got to go to Kinokuniya (amazing bookstore!) and buy a lovely Princess Mononoke artbook! I really wanted to draw some fanart after flicking through it.With so many spirits and traditional imagery, I thought I’d have another go at an ukiyo-e like style for it.
