Interests and passion
I enjoy consuming and producing almost any form of art - 2D/3D, digital/traditional, visual/audial/textual...
I have a particular passion for the bronze and dark/medieval ages, low and high fantasy subjects, creature design, and natural landscape art, but most subjects intrigue me - I adore the in-depth researching phase prior to tackling a piece of art.
While I definitely enjoy the social, action or reflex based game, I mostly enjoy games with compelling stories and great writing and visuals. I see video games as a true art form, with an immense potential, and wish to aid projects that truly move the medium forward.
Art is my passion, I've never had or never will have a plan B, and thats really all you need to know about me!
Also check out some of my many sketches!
I sketch a lot. In fact - I paint every single day of my life. These are often not big finished illustrations, or portfolio-worthy concept art, but rather all kinds of short, varied timeframes spent on varied topics.

My youtube channel: Art Stuff!
Click this button and head on over to my youtube channel for video tutorials on everything to do with art! Dozens of videos, and thousands of subscribers - it is quickly becoming a passion of mine to make tutorials and teach others.
Possum - a UE4 Game
My passion for all things game development have lead me to start casually working on a Unreal Engine 4 game called Possum. Possum is a online-arena combat game with unique directional combat. If you're interested in seeing more of this, check out a dev video

Pennant - a D&D Campaign World
Pennant is a world I've slowly been creating for my RPG campaign. A lot of my personal art ties into it. It has a massive world map functioning similar to google earth, all the way to detailed city maps, a whole wiki describing the history, cities, creatures, vast amount of characters that live in it - and I continuously build and expand it. This will hopefully one day be poured into a a book. For now though, I'm keeping this all behind-the-scenes!
