Nashoba-Hostina has started a donation pool!
9,333 / 7,400
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 do my best to have an extra update! :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.

I do NOT allow unlicensed use or reproduction of my work, in part or in whole.

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: . 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!

Other Places to Find Me


Tumblr: (Werewolf) and (Personal)

Blogspot (For Eldritch):


Weasyl (Under construction! I still need to upload a bunch of stuff):

(And I guess I still have a Nabyn, but I hardly ever visit: )

You can also find me in the woods. If you look hard enough.


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'm sad that Eldritch is done... Even if there isn't any more of the main story, there could be little things on here with the characters, or things to do with the world...

Just thought I should let you know, this person who recently watched you; :iconaddictkilleredd: ~ADDICTKILLEREDD is an art thief/false impersonator who has been stealing artwork from many of my friends, and refuses to remove their art from his gallery.

I have created a journal about him and the artwork he stole, please have a look if you need proof. -->:bulletblue: !Art thief alert!

 Be very careful of this person, and please make sure he hasn't stolen anything from your gallery. Sorry to bother you with message, but it's extremely important to call out thieves who feel like it's perfectly okay to try to impersonate and steal from other artists on dA. Thank you for your time, and spread this message if you can. Peace

I have not read through your whole Eldritch series yet, but I am interested in the story, and very impressed by the art-style that you use.

Hey there! I noticed that you're interested in werewolves!
I was wondering if you might be interested in joining this new group :iconenemies-of-man:

It's about some cool werewolves living in a half urban half wild setting, and it isn't restricted to wolves! You can be a werepoodle, or werefox if you like too.
Were just starting up, but please stop by and check us out. owo/

Thank you for your time, and have a lovely day!

uhm... i just noticed something ridiculous.

you see, i have been planning to start a webcomic, just like you. in which, you guessed, werewolves exist. 

while making studies for the one character that is a werewolf, i stumbled upon your reference for anatomy that you posted, which is, if i might say, phenomenal.

however, i also couldnt stop reading the comics, and... i noticed two things that might be considered an accidental "ripoff" on my behalf... which is even more ironic since i only found you today and have been working on this for quite a while, now.

1 - how lycanthropy works. except for the whole "focus on being a wolf to turn into one" thing, lycanthropy in my setting works almost exactly like yours. it is a parasitic virus that makes a symbiotic relationship with the host, serving as a second layer of virus protection, and turning the host into a werewolf when under extreme emotional stress, adrenaline levels, or rage. and can happen on its own every night, the host having absolutely no control. it is quite different from yours, but it still has many similarities. the character in question is an alchemist who later on finds ways to go around this, being able to develop both a serum that can avoid a transformation a single time (but with high toxicity, making him sick for days, so not something he can abuse) and another serum that allows him to retain his self control when in werewolf form. personaly i think the differences are too much to sound like plagiarism, but i still feel like i should discuss and clarify this.

2 - the "chronomancer" idea. you see, my villain could be considered an accidental chronomancer. he lived no less than 6000 years before the main story! he was a genius at the time, and developed the chronostone, which is basically a gem that allows the wielder to travel in time at will. his lifelong dream, as well as that of his wife, was to explore the future and the past - to know all the geniuses that lived before, to witness relevant past events, to see the future, and so on. however, the chronogem was imperfect and malfunctioned, sending both fumbling through the ages. his wife is lost somewhere (or rather "somewhen") while he, still having the burnt out stone, cannot stay in the same timespace for more than 12 hours, forcibly traveling again forward or backward through time.  this is the root cause behind his motivations, and i do not wish to post everything, but as you might have seen it has many similarities and an exactly equal character dillema to one of your own characters.

i really do not wish to plagiarize you, but i already have all the story written, and it would be a shame if people were to see all that hard work as a mere ripoff.
