Not-so-human boy by hawthornearts
Not-so-human boy
The first piece of what can hopefully turn into a series on Neonmob.
If you like it and would like to see an entire series made following this young man as he journey's across through lands unknown, please leave a like on my submission here:…

Arksong Chapter 3 Page 1 by hawthornearts
Arksong Chapter 3 Page 1
Some people were wondering what the Arksong comic looked like inside, so I'll upload a few pages just to give you an idea.
Here's the first page from the third chapter. I think I probably made this a matter of days after finishing the second chapter, because I was so eager to get on with the story and build on feedback from readers.

You can order all the Arksong chapters from my website:!shop… 
And I've also got my work in progress website for Arksong currently in the works, check it out here:!a…
I Am Sylvari by hawthornearts
I Am Sylvari
Because I'm still getting used to working with my cintiq, I set myself the task of warming up with a drawings of my Guild Wars 2 engineer, Xevo Cide. So we're going to start at the beginning of the game and pick out select parts that I find interesting throughout the game just for fun. 
I think Claw Island might be a good one for next.

It would be great to see any art anyone else has done from this game as well!
Arksong Chapter 3 - OUT NOW! by hawthornearts
Arksong Chapter 3 - OUT NOW!
Yes that's right, the third chapter of Arksong is now out!

Short description:
"Lirika and Fenghuang sought answers, but only found more questions... Without a ship or crew, Lirika and Feng must make their way to the outer rime of Aerisia. This captain wants answers, and she's going to get them"

56 full colour pages of adventure packed in one high quality booklet.

Order your copy:!prod…)
Hooded by hawthornearts
Pencil pencil pencil.
Was to be a prize, but decided to go with a watercolour piece instead, I'll upload that one later.
Saw :iconranasan: Post this up and thought I'd try too since I've been a bit inactive on here this past half a year

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

4 years, feels a lot longer

  2. What does your username mean?

It's my last name plus arts at the end lol

  3. Describe yourself in three words.

Workaholic, tired, optimistic

  4. Are you left or right handed?


  5. What was your first deviation?

Self Portrait by hawthornearts

Hmmm. Don't even know what to say about this lol...

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

Fantasy stuff, which you can really read into, maybe even make a story from.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

Straight up anime/manga style, the superclean linework, the cell shading, all of that.

  8. What was your first favourite?

Commission - CS4 post pro by shilin
Shillin's art stole my heart a long long time ago.

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

Epic stuff, with lots of details and lots of story.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

It shifts and changes, but been feeling :iconjuliedillon: 's  stuff for a while now.

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

:iconranasan: , (I'm his Shroud of Light sidekick)
I've bumped into a lot of others at conventions already so, I'm happy to meet anyone else

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

Many of my commissions and jobs came from here, I got in contact with the gallery for the first Art exhibition I was in here, I learnt many skills from tutorials here, I met the writer of the Shroud of Light (the first comic I ever worked on) here. Many many impacts from many different deviants. 

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

Pencil. Always will be

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

My dining room

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Hmmmm, that's a good question, I'm not sure.
But I guess putting up links to published projects like Shroud of light ( ) or Arksong (!prod…) ) always makes me happy, because I get to share my hard work with people and see the interest.

Phew, that wasn't too bad.
