RotG + GoC AU → zombie apocalypse

The outbreak turns the adage ‘things get strange after dark’ into a punch line.  Strange would have been welcome when death became relative.  Inside the quarantine zone MiM’s Guardians are spitfire forces against the undead and a comforting go between for the uninfected survivors and the reclusive man who keeps them as safe as the world allows.  A petty Russian criminal and a sharp-tongued Australian-  a withdrawn dream expert of a scientist and a woman who should have been made of fire and feathers.  At the end of the world it doesn’t pay to be too choosey about your lieutenants.  In a year’s time, with any luck, Katherine and Nightlight will join them.  They’re copper bright and snow blind white when they stand watch on the walls.  They’re the future.  They almost make it look shining.   

It’s in the Out Lands, the yawning mouth of the world outside the safe zone, where the nightmares fester and evolve.  Recon and supply teams bring back rumors of infected survivors who haven’t died.  They’ve changed.  The ghost stories bring whispers of phantoms inside the walls.  Pitch- a shade of a man who makes the dead part around him like a king and his serfs.  And his daughter… she’s alive- but terrifyingly so like a storm front in summer.  Some people say they walk side by side- others mutter that they only way they look at each other is down the barrel of a gun.

There are no shortcuts from point A to point B anymore.  The dogs are always at the door.  Jack knows most people would consider the boy at his side dead weight.  Even now though, he can’t bring himself to do anything less than what’s right. He only hopes he can get Jamie to MiM’s people before his own mutating infection catches up with him.  There’s an unshakeable chill at his core and each passing day makes it harder not to think of it as a clock counting down.  Counting down to an end he can’t see.

The dead don’t sleep so living learn how to forget what resting easy is.

I’ve gained an incredible amount of followers recently, and had a whole load of amazing support and lovely messages from people, so as a personal thank you to all of my followers, I’m running a giveaway for some of the goodies that I’ve gathered recently. There are four sets to give away, which means there’ll be four lucky winners!

Set One (Brave) includes:

  • Six official Pixar postcards with concept art from Brave
  • A Brave pencil case and two pencils, which was only given away at UK cinemas
  • A copy of the Little Golden Book version of the Brave movie (the art in this is gorgeous!)
  • A copy of the Brave DVD: this is a region 2 DVD. If the winner is outside of this region, I’ll give this away to a fifth lucky winner and replace it with a hand-drawn, signed Brave sketch.
  • An A4 print of any one of my artworks (winner’s choice)
  • A selection of random art goodies from me (likely comics, postcards, badges and/or greetings cards)

Set Two (Rise of the Guardians) includes:

  • An official, framed set of cells from the Rise of the Guardians movie - certified and limited edition of only 300
  • The Rise of the Guardians movie novelisation
  • A copy of Nicholas St. North and the Battle of the Nightmare King (book 1 of the Guardians of Childhood). Alternately if the winner already owns this then I’ll replace it with a hand-drawn, signed Rise of the Guardians sketch.
  • An A4 print of any one of my artworks (winner’s choice)
  • A selection of random art goodies from me (likely comics, postcards, badges and/or greetings cards)

Winners three and four will receive:

  • a sketch or simple line art of their choice, which I’ll make into a print and ship to the winner
  • any other goodies that I can magic up inbetween now and the end of the give away

I’ll run this until 11:59 PDT June 15th, and then select winners via a random generator website. All followers get an automatic entry to this, and every reblog is an extra entry. (Although please be considerate of your followers and don’t spam their dashboards too much) You don’t have to be following me to be included, but it sure is nice!

I will ship internationally. This giveaway isn’t associated with Tumblr, Pixar, or DreamWorks. Winners will have a week to respond or I’ll pick another one, and give away blogs won’t be counted

Ends June 15th!

I’ve been getting a lot of asks lately about the brushes and textures I use in my work, so here’s a BIG FAT REFERENCE POST for those of you who were curious! Bear in mind that I’m really lazy and don’t know what half the settings do, so don’t be afraid to experiment to figure out what works best for you :>



I use the pencil tool with SAI’s native paper texture both for sketching and for applying opaque color with no blending. Lower opacities give it the feel of different pencil hardnesses, while full opacity makes it more like a palette knife, laying down hard-edged, heavy color for detail work or eventual blending with other brushes.

Ink Pen

Mostly made this because I’m lazy and I didn’t want to have to keep turning my textures off/opacity up when I wanted to ink something (even though I don’t do it very often), or lay down flat colors. I find the line quality to be much more crisp than Photoshop, and you can manually adjust in-program stabilization to help smooth out hand wobbles.

Round Brush

The plain ol’ brush tool acts as sort of an in-between for me in terms of brush flow. It’s heavier than my usual workhorse brush, for faster color application and rough blending, but not as heavy as the pencil tool, which has no blending at all. I like to use the canvas texture on this brush to help break up the unnatural smoothness that usually accompanies digital brushes, but it works just fine without.

Flat Brush

A brush tool set to flat bristle is by far my favorite to paint with. I don’t use any textures with it because I think the shape of the brush provides enough of that by itself. I use it for everything from rough washes to more refined shaping and polish. It’s just GREAT.


Best used for smooth blending, washes, gradients, and smoky atmospheric effects.


Basically a grittier version of the watercolor tool, because too much smoothness weird me out. Good for clouds and fog, as the name suggests, or just less boring gradient fills.


To further stave off the artificially smooth look of digital painting, I almost always overlay some sort of paper texture, and it’s almost always this one, which I scanned and edited myself. You’re all welcome to use it, no permission required!

Using overlays in SAI is just as easy as using them in Photoshop. Just paste the texture into its own layer above everything you want it to apply to, and change the layer mode to Overlay. That’s it!

Want a more prominent texture? Up the contrast. Something more subtle? Lower the contrast or reduce the layer opacity. You can also use a tinted overlay to adjust the overall palette and bring a little more color unity to an otherwise disparate piece! Just be aware that too much texture can hurt the readability of the work beneath it, so I’d err on the side of subtlety.

Hope that helps!

I want you to imagine a ten year old version of yourself sitting right there on this couch. Now this is the little girl who first believed that she was fat, and ugly, and an embarrassment.
