I'm a concept artist & illustrator from Perth, WA with a love for drawing monsters. As well as working freelance in the video game and publishing industries, I'm currently creating artwork independently for my personal art book projects EXECUTION, My Shadows & SCARY SKETCHES. Other things that keep me busy are exhibiting at conventions around Australia & making art videos and tutorials.

If you have a business inquiry feel free to message me at austenmengler@gmail.com - or you can check out my FAQ. Thanks!

Interests





A bunch of new videos from My YouTube Channel. A new timelapse version of my hour long monsters sketch demo and some behind the scenes of some older pieces. I've been recently working on getting the web store at my site setup, a couple of commissions which I'll be sharing, and renovating my work space at home with a new desk. I'll also be exhibiting at Evolve in Perth & Oz Comic-Con Brisbane and Sydney next month in September, so shall let you know more about that soon.
Thanks for all the support and all the best!

- 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.

I'm really bad at finding stuff on people's profiles so I'm sorry if it's right in the open but... where/do you do commissions?

Hey thanks for asking, I don't generally do personal commissions but occasionally do when I have the time - so best bet is to email or note me to inquire with as much information as possible about what you've got in mind. Thanks!

Hey awesome, yeah looking forward to the show tomorrow too! I'm at Stand 45 in the Alley for the Perth show this weekend. I've also got a live demo on the Saturday at 2:30pm - 3:30pm at the Imagineer's Playground Stage where I'll be going through how I make monsters. Should be a ball! Hope to see you there! :)
