phantos's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
Illustrative artist focusing on creatures and animals of all shapes, sizes, and textures.

My preference of media genres is mostly in the sci-fi and fantasy areas though I do love a few realistic fictional topics as well.

Also, I am always open to critique! If you feel like you need to write one about a particular piece please feel free to do so. I am always grateful for any advice or words on how to improve C:

Portfolio // Art Blog // Sketch Blog // Weasyl // Behance

Please do not contact me about unpaid projects! I am currently taking commissions.

Couple of things:


I have recently re-done my commissions and am currently accepting them!
I've lowered the prices by a bit and am sticking with very specific styles (as displayed in the example pieces). I'll draw just about anything as well (see exceptions on the commission page).


I forgot about the features I was supposed to do months ago on another journal so I'll continue them here (as well as a few added ones for some artists friends of mine)

Weedy Seadragon by Ama-Encyclopika Glyphis glyphis by Ama-Encyclopika Endangered Species Day 2014 by Ama-Encyclopika Flying Painted Wolf by Ama-Encyclopika
A good friend of mine since highschool, Ama's focused a lot on wildlife art. She's a huge supporter and contributor towards conservation and focuses primarily on ocean life (sharks being her favorite). Her art has improved tons over the years and I'm a pretty big fan of her scientific illustrations. She has a penchant for more traditional media and her paintings have a lot of life to them. She also does a lot of Pokemon fanart (with a Pikachu-centric comic she's been working on for some time and a lot of Fakemon for a fan-region she created (this right here is my favorite Fakemon of hers it's so cool just look at it)).

ACC Ch20.33 by Shizuko2 Chalk board dragon doodle by Shizuko2 Archeska ink by Shizuko2 Okami brush stroke by Shizuko2
Shizuko is a great example of practice makes perfect. They've been working on a comic/OCT-thing since 2010 and though I have not read through the entire thing I can see the visible differences in quality between the 2010 and 2014 pages (and the ones in-between). They work in traditional media and, especially with the comic pages, I'm really impressed by both the quality and tenacity of this artist.

Lonely Deer by GoddessOTU Ducks in a Row by GoddessOTU Violin by GoddessOTU Ascending the Green Monster by GoddessOTU
One of my college buddies and roommates, Jeni is a skilled photographer. Though she'd complain about trips to the studio to work on things (then again, who didn't?) she'd always produce some amazing works. I particularly enjoyed pieces from her senior show and leading up to then depicting small figurines in landscapes made with pretty much anything from outside and inside, created in her room at like 11PM the day before it's due. The ones depicting singular figures or the same type of figures are my favorites among those. Though she doesn't post as much stuff as when we were still at college give her gallery a look through, you won't be disappointed!

Through The Desert On a Horse With No Name by KazultheDragon Put the Lyme in the coconut by KazultheDragon Lost by KazultheDragon Did Somebody Say Chocolate? by KazultheDragon
I've known Kaz for a while now and she is one of the people I have really tracked the progress of. Her style is instantly recognizable and she has maintained and improved that same style for years. She specializes in dragons and horse-type animals and is active enough on Neopets. Personality is overflowing from each image and the colors and shading are vibrant and eye-catching.

Finally Free by spiffychicken Rose Nouveau by spiffychicken Fire Piggies by spiffychicken The Spiffy Chicken by spiffychicken

Elsie is another long-time internet friend. She started out primarily with Pokemon art and then one day became this amazing 20's-inspired art machine pumping out piece after piece of wonderfully stylized characters. Whether it's papercut digital pieces or old timey black-and-white Mickey Mouse style characters or just really vibrant pieces of fanart this gal's got everything going on in her art.

Kendra went to Alfred with me for a bit and then ended up elsewhere (boooooooo haha). She was an exuberant and delightful person to be around and that transfers over into her art art well. With bright colors and well designed compositions her pieces are not only eye-catching but an absolute delight to look at over and over again.
