Austen Mengler
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
Hey I'm Austen, a concept artist & illustrator from Perth, Western Australia. I've been drawing all my life and since graduating Curtin University in 2011 I've done international freelance work on a variety of projects from album covers to concept art and illustration for video games, film projects and other publications. I'm also constantly developing and working on my own IP art book project 'EXECUTION', my own post apocalyptic mix of science fiction, fantasy and horror, with a whole world of characters and creatures. Other projects I keep busy with are releasing yearly 'My Shadows' sketchbooks and attending pop culture conventions around Australia.

To read more about my work you can check out my FAQ. If you have a question or business inquiry please feel free to email me at and I'll try and get back to you as soon as I can.

Photoshop Brushes

Below is a selection of some of the brush packs from other artist that I use and recommend. Generally using better brushes won't make you a better artist, and it's not essential to being good (look at Adrian Smith) but it does help give your paintings more texture sometimes and helps a lot with speed. I really recommend only to try custom brushes once you have a strong understanding of art first (traditionally especially), as there's no real shortcuts and you're only able to use them effectively once you've learnt the hard way. I find that I use 2-3 brushes for most of my painting/drawing work, and then use a lot of these others for custom effects and textures.

- Dan Luvisi's Brush Pack
- Anthony Jones' Brush Pack
- Darek Zabrocki's Brush Pack

No worries, keep up the awesome stuff.
How is it that I've been following you on twitter, tumblr, and YouTube yet had no idea you owned a deviantart? I've been a blind, ignorant fool. Sweating a little...
