My New Years resolution was to make a DeviantArt account and share my work. So, I've made a DeviantArt account! I hope that you may find something of interest in my work. And please feel free to leave comments/suggestions/critiques. I don't bite.

I know I've got next to nothing up at the moment but please check back soon - lots more work is coming.


Art nut, quite short, and likes weird stuff.

In particular designing creatures and pondering strange scenes.

If you have any questions and would like to contact me please feel free to email me at

Hey again!
I keep looking at your drawings and am just like "how" for about 15 minutes straight.
I just started doing digital drawings, but how do you get texture into your drawings? especially like dragon scales because I've just done a speed drawing of Toothless from How To Train Your Dragon and I dont know how to get the texture to make scales! or make realistic eyes~! Send help? plz lol

Hope all is well and so are you!

Hi Mel, nice to hear from you! Hope you are well. Sorry for the late reply. A lot of the texture you see in my artwork is actually from the brushes I use in Photoshop. If you look up Texture Brushes here on Deviantart I'm sure you'll find heaps to choose from, there may even be one that emulates scales specifically. Otherwise, I just draw very messily, and the act of doing so sometimes gives the illusion of depth and texture. :)

Gosh I haven't done anything in a while... I need to get around to posting something new....

Thanks so much I've been looking into it because I've started doing my own digital drawings and I'm doing one of Toothless from "How to Train Your Dragon"
and I just finished drawing a Harry Potter picture which is going on my new youtube :)
So I've been trying to master skills more so I can begin developing my own style

Thanks for your help!

What are you going to draw next?
JohnPatsakios Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2016
No problem Mel! I don't really know what I'll post next. I've been experimenting a lot recently with sculpture and traditional paint in my spare time... Have done some commission stuff which is great too, but they're kind of "exclusive" so I can't show them here... Gosh it's been a while since I posted something. I will definitely get around to putting something up soon!

That's great that you've got a youtube channel! Your Harry Potter artwork is really cute and quirky, I love it. :D And I really look forward to seeing your Toothless! I'll keep an eye on your gallery for sure. :)
