Gold Sun Lion Mask by merimask

This is quite an excellent mask, both in concept and excecution. You've got the likeness of the lion down very well. While the idea of ...

Mad Max: Furiosa by smokewithoutmirrors
Mad Max: Furiosa
"We are not things."

Finally got around to seeing Mad Max: Fury Road last night. I don’t think I’m quite myself again yet.

I’m… I’m going to need a minute. Or two. Or, like, a week to recover and remember how to function like a human being again. And, like, tickets to the next showing because oh my god.I can’t even. I have ceased to can.

I’ll, uh, I’ll be in the corner over there staring at the wall trying to find inner balance again.

Birdman by smokewithoutmirrors
Birdman
Acrylic, ink and watercolour on watercolour paper, 19.5x14 inches.

This was one of my last big projects from 2014. It was a nice change of pace in between all the comic-pages I was sketching, inking and colouring.

Available on Society6!

Eyes Blind to the Sea by smokewithoutmirrors
Eyes Blind to the Sea
Poor Mary was never the same after what happened at the well - after that dark, wicked thing got to her.

What happens when your friends on Twitter talk about mixing Lovecraft with Little House on the Prairie? This. This is what happens. I started drawing, and this is what came out at the other end. It also made me finally get around to listening to HP Lovecraft audiobooks, and I'm enjoying them so far, even though I wince at the frequent and blatant racism.

This image is available for sale on Society6! Get yourself a shiny Lovecraftian horror for your wall, or your phone-case!

Patreon-presentation comic! by smokewithoutmirrors
Patreon-presentation comic!
Hey everyone! I don't post much here any more - there's only so much time I have to spare, and I spend it on Twitter, Tumblr and Tapastic - but I thought you might like to see this. :) What better way to pitch a Patreon for a comic artist than... through a comic!

You can find my Patreon-campaign over here.

Tapastic 100 subscribers-kiriban
I reached 100 subscribers on Tapastic this week! So here's a picture of little Akane in a field of flowers to celebrate. Poor girl needs a break - she's having a tough time in the comic right now.

I also reached my first milestone goal on Patreon! Now all backers, regardless of level, get a shiny hi-res PDF of my comic Waystone, with a bunch of nice extras. Go check it out! Any donations made via Patreon go towards paying for my website hosting, paying my bills AND keeping my stash of tea in good order.

So, :icongeminick: tagged me to do this, and why the heck not. As always, if people want to keep track of what I actually do these days,come over to my Tumblr

RULES
1. Each person must share 10 things about them.
2. Answer the 10 questions asked to you, and invent 10 new questions that shall be asked to the people you will tag.
3. Choose 10 people, and put their icon on your journal. (... We'll see how many people I tag)

10 things
1. I started drawing in kindergarten, and drew nothing but horses for 10 years.
2. I have never dyed my hair.
3. I am very rarely ill.
4. I kind of suck at swimming, but still go swimming once a week.
5. I am a cat person.
6. I am a bookworm.
7. ... and yes, I have read the entirety of Moby Dick, from cover to cover.
8. My hometown has only 600 inhabitants.
9. I kind of suck at video games, but play them anyway.
10. I am a real scatterbrain.

:icongeminick:'s questions:
1. Do you like goats?
Yes! I mean, who doesn't? *Fainting goats* are a real thing! If that is not pure joy, I don't know what is.
2. What is your opinion on VATMOSS?
Fuck. VATMOSS. Thanks for eliminating any hopes that I, a freelance comic artist, could conceivably make a living off my work.
3. What is your middle name?
Maria. It's a family name.
4. Can I have your credit card number, please?
Hahahahahahaha - no.
5. What is your biggest dream at the moment?
To somehow get to make comics for a living.
6. Do you have any pets?
Yes - one huge, fluffy, grumpy cat.
7. If you were a fruit, which one would you be?
Pineapple.
8. Do you drink tea?
Only all the time.
9. If you draw/paint, what is your ideal art style or goal with your art?
To achieve a good balance between drawing pretty pictures and getting the story across. Hyperrealism is impressive, but I don't actually like it that much. Give me cartoonishly expressive art instead.
10. Name five people here on dA whom you admire for their art!
:iconnicholaskole:, :iconhira-geco:, :iconeleth89:, :iconjuliedillon:, :iconmakani:


My questions:
1. Do you have any personal projects going on right now? Comics, making your own game, etc.?
2. If you like movies, what kind of movies do you like best?
3. In the same vein, what sort of characters do you like best in stories?
4. Favourite ice-cream flavour?
5. Preferred software for drawing digitally? (PS, Manga Studio, SAI?)
6. What's your soundtrack?
7. Early mornings or late nights?
8. You can have coffee/tea with any three people in the world - who do you pick?
9. How many books do you have in your home?
10. What is something you'd like to learn more about?
