Eldritch Tipjar

Since the previous goal was reached (Oh my GOD you guys are so awesome, thank you!), there's a new goal! Same as last time, if the goal is reached, I will have a double-update week. :3

The purpose of the tipjar is to help me maintain my DA subscription. When more people watch and comment nicely on Eldritch, I'm more encouraged to continue making and sharing it (as opposed to keeping it under my hat.) Being able to display it nicely and slideshow my favorite pages helps me attract readers. Thus, having enough points to have a paid subscription helpes me make Eldritch. Roundabout and strange, yet true.

You must be logged in to donate.

A Blank Page is an Adventure That Hasn't Happened Yet.

Come Adventuring With Me.

Hehe, you know, once, one of my professors told me that if you’re an artist, art is like breathing --You have to do it whether you like it or not.

I disagree. If you’re an artist, art takes your breath away --You can’t wait to try things out, good ideas or not.

Art is a passion, a discipline, and a livelihood. I’ve scratched out my share of grunt-work. This or that for professors who wanted drippy paintings. But it’s these, my real pieces, that I find myself not illustrating with pencils or markers or paint. The soul, the spirit, is the greatest artistic tool anyone can ever own... and thankfully, we all have it, ‘Trained’ artists or not. Art itself is the unending adventure, and at the same time, it is also the means of recording the adventure

Thanks for being gentle with my work, my records… thank you for sharing my adventures with me. And thank you for encouraging me to keep having them.


About my gallery:

You’ll find a variety of things here, ranging from crafts to costumes to flatwork and comics. However, most of it is fantasy themed in one way or another, so, I consider myself to be a fantasy artist. There are several available folders to the side of my gallery, to allow you to skip just to what interests you.

You may note that in many of my deviations, there is a lengthy, italicized description, or story-like narration to the work. Unless otherwise stated, these are not quotes, but are my own writings, as told by a character of mine, “Seamus.”

I love to learn and research a plethora of subjects and will often incorporate what I know to my pieces, by writing stories to go with them. However, please understand, that while many of these are based off of mythology, history or science, I will reinvent history, modify mythology, and will twist science as I see fit to tell the story I like. I have no desire to mislead anyone, please, don’t take these writings as “fact.” If you are curious, I will be happy to inform you which tidbits are true, which are invented, and what my sources or inspirations are for any particuar piece.

Along with my normal plethora of pieces and stories, you may notice a lot of comic pages. These belong to my webcomic project, Eldritch. If you’d like to read it, please visit the first page here: fav.me/d1tgytj . Please note that it is intended for mature audiences, but I will try to keep it fairly family friendly in most cases. It updates on Wednesdays and incorporates a plethora of characters and concepts from my gallery, ranging from werewolves to good ol’ Seamus.

Once again, thanks for visiting!

About Comments

If you feel like commenting on my art or front page, yaaaay! If you wanna swing by and say hi, thank me for a +watch or a +fave, say something nice, give a polite bit of constructive criticizm, whatever, that's great! I love receiving relevant comments, and so many of you guys are so kind and awesome it hurts!

However, this is not a place to spout off political or religious agendas, ask for free art, pester me for not making enough art, advertise your own work or other's work, (This includes posting images of other's work) bash someone else's work (that's super unclassy guys), or post chain letters. Also regarding ‘ideas’ I have plenty of my own, and quite like them. I neither need nor want any from anyone else.

I know no malice is meant toward me with such things, but I find these sorts of comments irrelevant; so, I tend to hide comments of this type even though I know hiding the chain letter will cause sterility, give me bad mojo for my next three thousand incarnations, and make me rot in hell. (Can you tell I get a LOT of chain letters? ;3 )

Thanks for reading!

I'd just like to ask if it would be alright to add Faith as a short little nod to your story for you helping inspire mine?

I've read a lot of werewolf stores and they all tend to be the same story with only different names attached to the characters.

I realized just now that I haven't commented and properly thanked you for all the work you've done. Seeing a new page of "Eldritch" in my deviantwatch folder is definitely one of the highlights of my week! The moment I started reading it, I was hooked, and it's even more impressive when you still find enough time to update regularly even when there's so much on your plate, like going to cons and things like that. I've re-read the "Eldritch" series many times since and it never gets old, and I very much look forward to seeing what happens in the near future. On a more personal note, I wanted to say that it was in large part due to reading your series that I finally got enough courage to start writing in the first place; I'm even taking a creative writing class this spring! And...thank you for being so patient. What I mean is that almost a year ago, when I first joined DA, I posted something asking you to read something I wrote and...yeah, that was really amateurish on my part. I should have taken the time to read the rules. But looking back, I'm grateful that you were so patient with your response, especially to a then-wet-behind-the-ears newbie. So thank you, Nashoba-Hostina. Thank you for everything, and know that you've gained a loyal reader in me. :D

Mon dieu I love your comic.  The art is lovely, but its the pacing, character development, and your weaving in of historical peoples and folklore that takes my breath away.  Fantastic, please keep it up!  And if you ever print Eldritch in book form, I would love to own a copy!
