I'd love to do more generic fantasy/human work, and I hope to get into the industry somewhere someday! My dream is to have my artwork published for a book/company :)

I use my FA more than my DA (if you're interested in anthro art):…

hello are you open for request?

I have some cool Request ideas.

an sexy woman or other normal woman/mann (other?)  slays an pack of werewolves or lizardman

she/he stand on the top of the dead monster mountain with an winning position or sit on some dead monster body.…… <--from american dad ,rpg episode, nice positions

if you dont like to draw werewolves ?

Dinosaurman or lizardman would be awsome too.

lizardman concept here…

werewolf concept here…

If you dont like it im would be really happy to see this Werewolf in some cool position…

or in other color…

if you dont like werewolves , the lizardman from heavy metal 2000 would be awsome too ^^…

It would be so nice when you find time & interest on one of this Request .
Im not an good Artist but have some nice ideas ,it would be so fantastic when an wonderful Artist like you can do it.

Have an wonderful nice day
