Ranging from sketches in class to Digital drawings to even writing, my gallery has just a mixture of everything! I love Romance and that's normally what you'll find as my "theme." :P



Death the Kid x Mai by SpyroShurtagul
Death the Kid x Mai
Like I said with my Stein drawing, I was talking with my friend "Animal" and she has a thing for Death the Kid. So Mai is her OC, but she asked me to draw her with Kid so I did XDDD She finished her homework so she was allowed to see it haha!

So yeah! Soul Eater! Death the Kid! <3
FrankenSteinmetz (Stein and Me) by SpyroShurtagul
FrankenSteinmetz (Stein and Me)
I was talking with a friend of mine who just recently finished Soul Eater and didn't know how to move on in life (which I totally understand after finishing up such a great anime) so we were talking about our favorite characters and how we would draw them with us XD

So... I'll be honest... I had this weird fascination with Stein... Idk what it is. Maybe it's his craziness... Maybe I really am into a little more violent nature... Haha! Either way, his character always sparked my interests.

So I decided to draw myself with him in the style of Soul Eater for some fun. ^_^ Hope you guys like it! I sure do ;P
Never Had A Friend Like You by SpyroShurtagul
Never Had A Friend Like You
When I heard about Robin Williams... man... I can't tell you how devastated I was... I mean... You hear about celebrity deaths rather often... But this one took the cake. I have never felt so much pain from a celebrity death. I mean... I barely knew the guy. But, let's face it. We all basically knew him. He showed his true self IN his movies. He didn't hold anything back...

I was especially transformed by him in the movie Aladdin. Aladdin came out in 1992 (the year I was born) and that automatically gave me a sense of kinship. Genie's song "Friend Like Me" was always my favorite; one that I would sing very often while vacuuming... lol...

It was my dream to someday meet him. I wanted to talk to him so badly because he was such an inspiration. He was kind and courteous to others and shared laughter like no one's business. I miss him terribly... And I'm very sad that he would choose the path of death over life...

So in honor of one of my favorite actors, I decided to draw him in his most influential role to me with me in the style of Jasmine (i don't really look like that... the eyes especially... but once I had already drawn them, I was like "eh" and moved on)


(By the way, I'm collaborating with a friend of mine, Freedan90, with this drawing. He wanted to color it :3)
Portrait of my Boss XD by SpyroShurtagul
Portrait of my Boss XD
I was practicing some drawings of my boss and coworkers because I want to make portraits of each of them and put them on tshirts for them to wear as a surprise since I don't work there anymore... Well I was working on drawing my boss. I messed up a bit, but I did draw this in all pen so it's alright XDD

As I said, this was drawn in pen.
Portrait of a Friend by SpyroShurtagul
Portrait of a Friend
I was skyping with a couple of friends and I ended up drawing one of them... It doesn't look exactly like him. I could have put more time into it, but I just kinda doodled. I mean... He didn't know I was drawing him and he kept moving so I did the best I could... XDDD

Drawn with graphite in maybe an hour?

United States
I am an alumni now at Concordia University, Nebraska in Seward, Nebraska with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design. Although I have this degree, as a child I always dreamed of being a character designer or illustrator at entertainment companies for television, movies, video games, etc. Lately, however, I have recalled the love I had for illustrating children's books when I was a kid sitting in my mom's office drawing.

I prefer hands on illustration using primarily colored pencils, oil pastels, graphite, charcoal, etc. I love learning new mediums, however. I'm very open to trying new things. I am also able to work on digital illustrations as well, though I still prefer the tactile approach. My next favorite design aspect I enjoy is Typography.

Along with art, I have a passion for music. I listen to basically everything and have gained admittance into the A Capella Choir at Concordia. I would love to get a chance to maybe do some voice acting and singing for the entertainment industry at some point in my life. I think it would be quite a fun adventure!

I am a fast learner so though I may have no idea what a certain program does, my computer skills that I've gained through years of sitting here, give me the advantage to learn and understand quickly.

Current Residence: Colorado
Favourite genre of music: Techno/Electronica/Dance
Favourite style of art: Disney, Anime
Operating System: Asus: Republic of Gamers
MP3 player of choice: 7th Generation Video iPod
Favourite cartoon character: Spyro the Dragon, Sora, Demyx, Sly Cooper, Crash Bandicoot
Personal Quote: “The inclination of my life—the motto, you might call it—has been to do things and make things which will give pleasure to people in new and amusing ways.” —Walt Disney
