This is the cover art for my new Five Nights at Freddy's fanfiction, The Butterfly Effect. It took two attempts and a week of painting on and off to complete, but the result is so, so worth it. Painting bokeh by hand is an experiment I didn't expect to work, but it did!Read More
This painting is a small, quick one that I made to experiment with coloured light sources. It's messy, but I'm pleased with how that stark red came out. Follow the step by step below to see how I did it! I listed the pigment numbers on all of the paints I used to help you find the closest match in your own brand.Read More
A little Christmas gift I painted for a friend. I find it a lot of fun to take something that would normally be frightening and turn it into something cute (or vice versa!)Read More
This is a Christmas gift I painted of a friend's cartoon succubus character. She was a lot of fun to paint! Sometimes it's nice to experiment with a different style.Read More
I completed this painting as a raffle prize on Tumblr! It was fun to try out painting a human character again and I got to test some new techniques.Read More
It's not every day I'm commissioned to draw the iconic and horrifying springlock scene from Five Nights at Freddy's 3. And, well, let's say I took that task and ran with it. These types of commissions are my favourite because I get to cut loose and have a bit of grisly fun!Read More
I was commissioned to draw this fan design of a Nightmare version of Springtrap from Five Nights at Freddy's. It's drawn in graphite, white pencil and ink on grey-toned card. Overall a very fun piece to work on!

Faber-Castell 9000 2H, HB, 4B, 6B
Mechanical pencil, HB 0.5mm lead

Five Star India ink, white
Just in time for Halloween, here's a free colouring sheet of Jack O Bonnie from Five Nights at Freddy's!Read More
I was commissioned to paint this piece as a wedding anniversary gift for a close friend. The request? To represent the happily married couple's travels around the world in bird form! It's just a shame that 'Birds of South Africa and New Zealand Plus One Robin' was too long a title!
Birds featured, from top-left clockwise: brown-headed parrot, African fish eagle, New Zealand fantail (piwakawaka), tui, New Zealand falcon (karearea), European robin.Read More
Toy Chica is one of the animatronic characters from Five Nights at Freddy's 2. She's not often drawn as the friendly children's character she's meant to be, nor with her beak, so I thought I'd try something a little different with this piece. I think it's a bit of a victim of overworking and muddy colours. I guess it goes to show that everyone makes mistakes sometimes!Read More
The third entry in the Five Night's at Freddy's series released on Steam on the 2nd of March, 2015. I painted this to celebrate the game's second anniversary! It took two days, about ten hours in total, roughly. I have to say that I really enjoy painting dark, dramatic lighting like this, though it can be difficult to pull off in watercolour, and had a lot of fun with this one.
I can't believe it's been two years already! Time's flown, and what a ride it's been! Thank you Scott for this game series through which I've met so many friends, which inspired me to finally start putting my art out there and start writing a story I can stick with. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the series from now on, as well as any other games you make. Thank you!
This watercolour painting is a paid commission of Thunderbirds 1 and 2, from the classic sixties TV show about a family using futuristic machines to rescue people in peril! Working with the lighting and colours on this one was a lot of fun. I enjoy painting dawn scenes.Read More
This painting was a Christmas gift for my mother, so though I finished it a few days ago I had to wait until now to post it to avoid spoiling the surprise! This horse, Spud (Touch of Frost is his official name,) is retiring from shows at the end of this season and I thought I’d do something special and paint him.Read More
A completed watercolour commission of a Eurasian blue tit! I was really happy to be commissioned to paint one of these, as they’re very common British garden birds and I have fond childhood memories of seeing them hanging around the feeders. They're agile little clowns!Read More
All up I think about 50 hours of work went into this, spread out over a month. It's been one long, painstaking effort but absolutely worth it in the end! All I need to do now is squish this under some heavy books for a day or so, seal it with UV blocking clearcoat and ship it off to Canada.Read More
This is actually the second time I've made a Millennium Ring; I never took good photos of the first before giving it to its new owner. It's made from air dry clay and measures roughly eleven inches from the bottom of the lowest point to the top of the upper ring. I love the finish on the Vallejo liquid gold paint but it's alcohol-based and horrible to work with. I'd say the result is worth the hassle, though! It's very shiny in person.Read More
Even dragons need to relax sometimes!
I've had the sketch for this sitting around for a few months now and I finally decided to go back and paint it. It was fun to experiment with colours and see what worked and what didn't. I originally planned for a red dragon, but realised it wouldn't stand out very well against the background, so I picked green as it's a not a colour I've used anywhere else in the picture.
I was asked to draw ALL of the Toy animatronics, so here's Toy Bonnie! He was a lot less troublesome than Freddy and didn't take as much work, thank goodness. I decided to make all of them shinier than they are in the game, firstly to match Toy Freddy (I did that to him out of necessity) and secondly because high gloss finishes are really fun to paint! I want to get some white India ink because my gel pen doesn't work well for large white spots, I might revisit this with the ink once I have it.Read More
So this started out as a joke/gift sketch for someone on Tumblr, but I just couldn't leave it at that and ended up fleshing it out into a full painting. The watercolours went haywire on this and I had to work around some pretty bad pilling on the paper, hence the extensive coloured pencil highlights and high gloss sheen. Just imagine that this dapper bear has been freshly turtle waxed for a big show!Read More
