Hi there!

I'm just a random artist lost in monsters, original characters and other things. Well, I’m known by Alphares/Alpha/Al or Shawn, an artist and all around weirdo living in the little country called Austria.

Most of the time you will find my stuff being centred around creature design/drawing/headworld design (on my artblog, Inkblotches) or on photography. I work as an illustrator in the educational sector but in my free time I enjoy many things like music, games, trips to the zoo or simple hikes with my camera equipped.

Interests:
- Art (Concept Art, Writing, Photography, Drawing, Comics)
- Games (RPGs, MMOs, Hack n Slash, Beat em Up, Virtual Petsites/Sims, etc)
- Music (Metal, Folk-/Pagan-/Vikingmetal, Electro, Synth Pop)
- Books (Non-fictional works, Lord of the Rings, Eaters of the Dead)
- Biology (Zoology, Cryptozoology, Genetics)
- Religion (Spiritualism, Shamanism, Religions in general)
- Mythology (Human mythology, Creatures and Beings of all sorts)

Fandoms:
Monster Hunter, Resident Evil, Bloody Roar, Folklore/Folksoul, Red Dead Redemption, Jurassic Park, Pokemon, Tera Rising, etc


Have fun and enjoy your stay!

A bunch of "Thank yous" and apologies!

Seems like Weasyl is becoming more and more popular these days. Awesome to see so many lovely people and artist gathering here. I'd like to say thank you to all the new followers and for all the favourites and comments. I'm flattered by all the attention my work gets lately.

Also I need to apologize to some of you who might have received random friend requests, favs and de-favs, and so on. Weasyl seems to be malfunctioning a bit on my laptop causing all this ruckus. I'll look into that as soon as possible. I hope nobody feels offended by those notifications. Please know that I didn't mean any harm by that.

Well, I hope all you new faces have fun here on Weasyl <3
