Australia
Hey I'm Austen, a concept artist & illustrator based in Perth, Western Australia. I love creating horror, fantasy, sci-fi, and surreal concept art, character & creature designs and illustrations. Since graduating Curtin University in 2011 I've done freelance work for several years, and have been developing my own IP artbook project 'Execution' and exhibiting at pop culture conventions around Australia.

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.

- Mr--Jack's Brush Pack
- Dan Luvisi's Brush Pack
- Anthony Jones' Brush Pack
- Darek Zabrocki's Brush Pack
- Michael Ivan's Brush Pack
- algenpfleger's Brush Pack
- Fenris31's Brush Pack
- Deharme's Brush Pack
- Rahll's Brush Pack

Just stopping by to say I love all your work. Imaginative, fascinating, beautifully crafted, deeply macabre, and visceral in every sense. I haven't found art this compelling in a long while.

You have some very creepy stuff in your gallery. I love it!
May I ask, how do you get the inspiration for conceiving such creations? : O
