If you want to see WIP's and previews for upcoming projects then please visit my blog:, I will no longer be posting WIP's to DA unless I want a critique on something. I'm more active on Tumblr too.

Thank you for every watch, fav and comment, it's really encouraging to me as an artist. I can't thank all of you in person at the moment but I will try to reply to every comment. :)

You can expect to see punk, military, mercenary and generally psychotic terrorist/anarchist and corrupt police-type characters. I love Sci-Fi and general concept scenery so will be attempting such artworks later.


No favourites yet.



Because I noticed I'm still getting watchers here. I appreciate it don't get me wrong but this account is dead and I hope to de-activate it once my last Nordanners are sold and Baliro imports are switched over to my harpg account. I am going to make a concerted effort to keep harpg and human art split up this time round so here's where to go if you wish to continue watching me:

For animal art, specifically HARPG, Shedu cats, general equine and possibly canine art go to FenwayIntl. Note: I will NOT be breeding Nordanners nor will I draw other people's Nords this time round so don't watch that account if you're only here for the Nords! Please note that leaving Nordanners =/= leaving HARPG. I will still be playing the game but updates will be slow and sporadic at best. I am also likely to go text-based as although I grump about activity rules and how much I hate them I'm not active enough to tell the story I want to tell with art/illustrations. My focus points this time round will be Shedu cats, Thoroughbreds, Irish Sports Horses and Georgian Grandes. My Zorse Jericho will be following me there too. C: I'm plotting to start a GSD breeding programe too but IDK.

For human(oid) art go HivemindzNote: This is a HARPG-free zone. There will be NO animal art what-so-ever. Meaning, No horse art and NO Shedu art. DO NOT WATCH HIVEMINDZ IF YOU EXPECT TO SEE ANY KIND OF ANIMAL ART. This is for human(oid) art ONLY. If you want to see human OC's then by all means feel free to follow me there. :) 
    *** Do not contact Hivemindz with (H)ARPG-related questions. Those should be sent to ChainedOakStud. I will ignore such inquiries sent to Hivemindz and will block repeat offenders if I have to. Hivemindz is my "retreat" if you will, somewhere where I can get away from (H)ARPG. I do not appreciate being bugged about (H)ARPG-related things there. 

I am sort of on hiatus from both accounts, been ill lately and haven't felt like doing much (had a combo-breaker of sinusitis and sore throat). I'm also currently waiting on a tablet pen replacement to arrive but should hopefully be back in action soon the infections seem to be clearing up. :) Apologies if this journal is a little patronizing, I bolded a lot of points here because it has come to my attention that people watch Hivemindz expecting to see animal art even though I feel like I've shouted myself hoarse that for animal/arpg art you go to ChainedOakStud. . . :stare:

I draw, lineart and colour in Paint Tool Sai although lately I've been experimenting with shading in Photoshop Elements. I use a large Wacom Intuos4 tablet. I started drawing people seriously back in 2007 and I started drawing horses seriously in  late 2010 whilst art-blocking. I'm 100% self-taught.

:bulletred: I got sorted into Slytherin on Pottermore. :dummy:
:bulletred: I play HARPG.
:bulletred: I love military, sci-fi and punk themes. I get just as excited over military hardware and super cars as girly-girls get over shoes and make-up.
:bulletred: I am hopelessly obsessed with Death's Head trilogy by David Gunn. Other obsessions include: Avengers, Thor and Captain America: First Avenger.
:bulletred: I loathe mainstream music with a burning passion.
:bulletred: I am a self-confessed metalhead and am addicted to Hardstyle and Hardcore. I'm not a big fan of 'happy hardcore' but I love the kind of stuff that shows up on Masters of Hardcore podcasts. I also like a bit of Drum n Bass every now and again.
:bulletred: Speaking of music, I am a sucker for Zatox, Headhunterz, Noisecontrollers, Avenged Sevenfold, Pendulum, Linkin Park and Metallica. Other musical loves include: The Quemists, Spor, Alphaverb and The Machine.
:bulletred: More of a heads-up than anything, I'm bisexual. There's just as likley to be topless women in my gallery as there will be topless men. This also means I'm likely to make the sort of remarks in the artist's comments a man thinking with his dick would. You have been warned.
:bulletred: For some reason people assume I'm a computer nerd even though I failed GCSE ICT quite epically with an E. On a similar note of assuming, people often get the impression I am a Communist or at least support left-wing politics.

Hi, sorry to bother you, but you had an adopt thing from a while back and i was wondering if you were still selling the horses. I saw quite a bit of others who tried to buy them, but you never responded or updated the artists comments. Here's the ones in talking about:…

Sorry for bothering you ^^

You got a lot of new NWB's! XD hopefully I can snag one later...:c
GunsSmoke Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Actually I don't have any NWB's - gave up with that breed because I don't agree to the activity rules. As said on each NWB's profile "I don't want to know if you now own the horse, nor am I interested in following your new horse having left the group for personal reasons".

I don't mean to sound off but if I do I apologise, a recant experience with that group has left me with a sour taste in my mouth and I don't really want to be reminded of that decidedly unpleasent experience. . .

Planning on doing a few once I've done Ilya's reference sheet - it's a big file so Sai won't co-operate otherwise I'd be streaming now. ^^
