Fan Art

This goblin is supposed to be decked out in, I guess, some kind of Ursula/Shepard-gentleman cosplay? It made sense in my head.

So I’ve been yearning to do lots of fanart lately – who knows why. It must be a self-soothing mechanism.

First of all, here is Ursula the Sea Witch. This is actually my response to a thing I’ve been seeing all over the internet, where some people did these fashion-y versions of various Disney villains for a make-up line, or something (I can’t find a link to it, and I don’t really know what I’m talking about, so hopefully you have seen this around too and can fill in the gaps), and they made Ursula all skinny, and replaced her tentacles with a purple skirt. How dare they not do that godly chin the sweet justice it deserves! I remember being a kid, and having a kind of terrified fascination with Ursula, who had weird bloody-mollusc lipstick, and knew what “the men up there” liked. I owe her this one.

By the way, if you’re going to cover up Ursula’s awesome tentacle body, at least give her an enormous, ripped and stained and seaweed-knotted tulle skirt, or something. GEEZ guys.

And here’s the Mass Effect comic I did a while back, which I might as well post here while I’m talking about fanart. It was eight pages long, but way too embarrassing to publish in full! I crafted it out of my raw, tender emotions, you understand, which does not necessarily lead to the best and most polished writing.
You should also check out Yuko’s Mass Effect comic – extremely pleasing. She understands about these things.

You can buy the originals of these pages on McConnell Art.

Finally, I should mention that I mercy-shot my poor old Facebook account. I hadn’t logged on to it in a couple years – so if you you ever wrote me on there then I definitely missed it, and I’m sorry that I never got back to you!

    Oh man, I know. Ursula is the only good character in that movie. I should try drawing her too.

    Wow. Just awesome.

  4. I was looking forward to the devastated Turian comic since I saw these pages in Brandon´s blog. But sigh , I understand. Great work, so good.

    So absolutely stunning! I adore the Ursula and the Garrus…. I just can’t put into words. Gorgeous!

    Okay so now that I’ve looked around, where can I buy your comics? I don’t have a comic shop close anymore (just did the across-town move myself) from which to request it, and I’m a little tipsy and can’t figure out if I can buy it from the Image website.

    I wouldn’t mind helping to fund (a few dollars at a time) a shiny forest or two by buying your work. It’s amazing and how I always want my more illustrative stuff to come out but it would never never come close. I’m too much a designer, so it goes flat, but anyway, yes! Thank you!

      Ack, I’m sorry I’m so bad at checking my comments! is an easy way, if you just search my name + Beast. Or if you have a local comic store, they will probably order you a copy.

      Shiny forests for all of us, I say. And you should put some of your illustrated stuff out there, because I bet it’s awesome.

    Can we pretty please see the entire Mass Effect comic? D= These three pages are absolutely beautiful.

    I just wanted to let you know, I just finished reading your “Beast” book last night and was totally blown away and creeped out. I really felt everything in that book, it was truly amazing. I couldn’t put it down and just read the thing in one sitting. Really Terrific, can’t wait to get more of your stuff. This was the first thing I ordered after I read about it while reading through Brandon’s blog.
