Zompaws's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
English, Illustration graduate, who now works for an Animal charity. Im pretty sure i'm allergic to people, but not to Guinea-Pigs. And I cannot let go of the past, im pretty much fuelled by nostalgia & J-Rock.
I'd rather like to be a professional sleeper.
Predominately a traditional fantasy artists, but I am hoping to be throwing more things in. 2016 is going way to quickly for my liking but I will be producing more work for the remainder of this year I hope. That;s if i stop binge watching Anime in my time off work.
I realised that I haven't posted any form of journal for a year. Again. I've accidentally slipped back into lurker mode. I think as i had been intending soley to use DA for my completed, full, intricate, taken me 4 months to do paintings. And well, i havent finished one of those in about 6. Then i figured, why the hell dont I just upload everything else I do on here, which is considered complete. I should not be ashamed of my lack of backgrounds!

I have bit of a back-log, so expect some arts soon.

And there we have it.
  • Listening to: Dir En Grey
  • Reading: Earthsea Quartet
  • Watching: Black Butler
  • Playing: Pokemon Go!
  • Eating: Jerk Chicken
  • Drinking: Tea


Winter Ink
So, after a year, or possibly more. I have finally, finally found it in me to finish this. Originally, it was just going to be a little character study. Then I wanted to do some painting on skin tones and using different colours in shadows. Then i started reading about how female tattooing is traditional in iceland. And liked the the idea of ladies having tattoo's as a cultural thing for Goblins, as I'd always designed Takkun (at the front) to have them. So the little tools down beside them are based on tradititional icelandic ones for the art. So, this painting kind of evolved and had bits added and changed as i went along. There was definately no plan for it. Apart from once i decided they were inside, i wanted it to have a cosiness. Because I imagine their homes to be small and warm, and well made. Nice little shelters fromthe outside world.

About the characters:  Takkun is a soldier, with an awful sense of humor. Like you know those people who always come up with a joke or a terrible pun and think they are hilarious? Like they think they are the only person to have ever come up with it ... yeah thats her. Sometimes she pushes a little further than appropriate. Despite her minor personality fault, She's a loyal, reliable character.
Zaihan, who as well as being her tattooist  is her partner is also the village medic. She's tolerant (she'd have to be really) certainly no pushover and pretty shrewd.

watercolours, and a bit of gelpen.
Put him down
Im still trying to finish a painting i've been doing for over a year. So i just doodled my boys as a distraction, my eyes were getting tired for tiny watercolouring.

Jahvir really needs to get less grabby. Khro is probably doing sometihng important like reading in a dishevled state, he ain't got time for being man-handled.

Yes I ...

Fave and Run!

Fave and Run Stamp by Spyridon

I do for a part understand how frustrating this is, as I like many artists always appreciate a comment. But I am often too busy to take the time to write what I would like.

So If I do fav and nothing else please take it as the compliment it is. I loved that piece of art, and want to be able to see it again. (And If i find the time and words, give it a comment too)

Other Stamps ... because I can

Thank you very much for the +fav of my Nature's Fire watercolour painting.  It was done as a gift for a wonderful photographer here on dA as she had let me use one of her other photographs as a reference for a painting I did for a friend of mine. :-) (Smile)
