It has been a Happy New Year and its time for me to plan what things to do this year. I got a light table in Christmas and bought some thick papers, so there´s going to be a lot of drawings coming here. Things you can expect from me are...
  • Various Mythical/Fantasy beasts. I´m working on several diverse Trolls, Icelandic Ihlveli, Butatsch-cun-ilgs, and a Haku-taku.
  • Some cute Monster Girls based on some of the aforementioned Myth Beasts.
  • Maybe some Fantasy-World Building heavily inspired from old mythologies.
  • Some more characters from my sci-fi setting Worlds; including a cute Dragon-Goat girl, some GIMP drawings of Madame Darkayda and others.

Have a fun year 2016. :)

  • Mood: Optimism
  • Listening to: God Module, Sirus
  • Reading: Mythology, Paranormal, The Out-Of-Placers comic
  • Watching: Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt
  • Playing: Bio Menace
  • Eating: Sugar
  • Drinking: Coffee

I am a normal (or maybe not so normal) guy who loves monsters, aliens, bizarre biology, anthropomorphic/funny animals and weird/dark things.
With these interests, I use my imagination and drawing skills to produce weird creatures and cute/ funny/cool-looking anthro-animals. As all people have ambitions, I have my own ambitions about my creativity.
When I am in the mood, I always try to think outside-the-box when I´m going to design some creatures. I always try to create the most mind-blowingly bizarre biologies, morphologies, psychologies ever when I’m designing aliens (I am sick of those anthropomorphic imagination-lacking humanoids) and regarding monsters/creatures I just want to make them look as strange and cool as possible.

Higher ambitions is world-building a science-fiction “universe”. I have tried many different stories/settings but my current vision is “Worlds”. It is about how the Terrans (earthlings) had spread beyond their solar system and created/terraformed several worlds and colonized them. These worlds are very diverse as they (thanks to genetic/biological engineering) are populated by many different creatures and sophonts which have adapted to each world’s specific conditions. Even if I have humans in my universe, I focus more on the uplifted animals and splices they have created (I LOVE anthros). “Worlds” is supposed to be “hard sci-fi” but as I want to give my universe a more fantastic fantasy-feeling, I incorporate magic/paranormal elements and turn them into (more or less) plausible sci-fi stuff. These things include transapient “deities”, mind-uploaded “ghosts” and nanotech-based telepathy.
The purpose with “Worlds” is creating a universe that is not like most other sci-fi worlds, a place that is bizarre and fantastic as it is intriguing with its many concepts and diverse worlds and beings.

Writing lyrics is another project I have. Listening to electronic music all day (it is like drugs to me); I want to create my own awesome music to fill my own and other people’s ears. But before I can produce music, I practice with writing song lyrics (and rhyming when I am in the mood). When it is about the theme of my songs, it is dark and aggressive but I hope that I eventually will write something light-hearted and not so very dark. Currently I am influenced/inspired by the beautiful synth melodies and spooky-ness of “God Module”, the gloomy haunting atmosphere of “Grendel’s” first album, the aggressive awesomeness of “Imperative Reaction’s” three latest albums, rock like “Powerman 5000”, twisted psytrance like “Xenomorph” and Metroid soundtracks.

Favourite movie/TV character: The Grinch played by Jim Carrey, Preed from "Titan A.E", Lampy and Radio, Donnie Darko and Frank, Nostalgia Critic, Morph and Chas, Rick Sanchez.

Personal Quote: Of all known monsters of this universe, MAN is the worst one on Earth!

I didn´t know there was such a game until you told me. Well, the complexity of the environments and the programming behind it is undoubtly impressive.
The game I´m most hyped for, both in design and gameplay, is Axiom Verge. It´s so fun looking at the colorful pulsating biotech setting and those Giger-style robot heads.

one question, considering the overabundance of human aliens and rubber forehead aliens in mainstream sci-fi, would you think that a plausible alternative would be that all of these humanoids could be Terragen civilizations like in Orion's Arm where they descended from humans?
