The Peril of Kush
For the first time in his life, Teriahi laid one foot upon the summit of Amun's Mount. His leg wobbled under the burden of nervous shame the instant his leather sandal contacted the sandstone. Only royalty and priests could set a single step atop this ancient plateau, the first outcropping of land the Creator had drawn up from the floodwaters of primordial chaos. Any mortal commoner, even a captain of the armies like himself, would profane this hallowed ground with his mere presence. So had maintained generations upon generations of tradition.
Nonetheless, desperate times called for desperate measures. And seldom before had times been so desperate for the people of Kush. Amun, in all his divine wisdom, must have understood that. And indeed, despite Teriahi's worst fears, the Creator had not dissolved his leg or inflicted any other punishment for his trespassing. He sighed in relief.
His soldiers marched behind him, some equipped with gleaming bronze spears and ox-hide shields, others w

While working on a $25 commission for DinoArt65, it occurred to me that I could do more of them. So if you have enough money to spare, I'll open up four slots for the next couple of weeks (not counting the one I'm already working on). Each commissioner gets one slot per round.


The base price is $15 for a single character or creature on a simple background. Add $10 for any additional character and another $10 for any kind of environment.


* Please do not send me money until you have privately messaged me about what you want drawn. I reserve the right to refuse any commission.

* From this point on, all commissions will be linked to you view note. You have the right to upload it on your own page as long as you explicitly credit me for it.

* My art isn't your soapbox or pulpit, so I'm apprehensive about doing anything explicitly political or preachy. I can draw characters from religious scripture or mythology, but keep in mind that I am an atheist (so nothing promoting creationism or fire-and-brimstone stuff, please).

* For reasons that should be self-evident, don't ask me to draw anything racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, etc.

* I am willing to draw couples, heterosexual or homosexual, as well as pin-ups. Explicit porn or fetish art, not so much.

* Anything with graphic violence or gore will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

* Unless you happen to own the copyright to the characters in question (or if they are public domain), I'm not doing commissions for fan art. Also no "fan characters" for copyrighted franchises. I'm more than happy to draw the characters from any original stories or comics you're producing though.

* If you want anything mechanical or futuristic, I might tackle it so I can get out of my comfort zone, but keep in mind that I don't have a ton of experience with that subject matter. So it may not turn out as good as my historical or fantasy stuff.

I'm an amateur artist and writer who has a B.A. in Biological Anthropology from the University of California in San Diego.



Finally got around to seeing the new Kong movie. It was on the better side of OK. The human characters were a bit thin, but we did get to witness the spectacle of a giant ape fighting a giant lizard.
Repost from FB:

So I just got out of the new Beauty and the Beast. Amazing that a cartoon from the early 1990s could have so much more soul and majesty than its live-action/CGI reboot. But at least I have an informed opinion on why it sucked.

So sorry for the art slump...will break out of it this week, I promise!
For those of you who are Muslim or of Middle Eastern descent, all I know how to say is that I hope everything turns out well for you in the end.
Now this is what I reckon ancient Egyptian music must have sounded like. It's from the old computer game "Pharaoh".

Can i get one tiny nitpick off my chest?
DaBrandonSphere Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
What would that be?
Helixdude Featured By Owner Edited Mar 17, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You're blackwashing your Egyptians, while ancient Egyptians certainly weren't pasty white Caucasians but they weren't the same racial stock as the Sub-Saharan Africans either. I'm not sure if you're aware of Tutankhamen's reconstruction so here's the link:…

Hell, if you want to know more about the controversy surrounding what the people of ancient Egypt looked like Wikipedia has a page on it:…, feel free to come to your own conclusion.

Sorry for not responding sooner, but I find these debates to be as fruitful as arguing with young-earth creationists or flat-earthers. So I'm afraid we're going to have to agree to disagree.

Out of curiosity, who is your favorite African Cretaceous carnivorous dinosaur, Spinosaurus, Rugops, Eocarcharia, Carcharodontosaurus or Suchomimus?
DaBrandonSphere Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Out of that selection, probably Carcharodontosaurus, since it's the dinosaur that resembles T. rex the most (on a superficial level).
ChinchillaChris67 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2017  Student Traditional Artist
Just wanted your opinion. Thanks!

Hi. I was watching a new Netflix show called Edgar Rice Burrough's Tarzan and Jane, and there was something about it I'd think you'd like. In that show Jane is actually of African descent.

Block this. I dare you. Do it and you prove him right.
DaBrandonSphere Featured By Owner Edited Feb 27, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, excuse me for not wanting to listen to trolls!
Sekley Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2017
It's not trolling, it's constructive criticism. Trolling would be me just saying your stuff looks butt ass ugly and not giving a reason why or suggesting any critique to help you grow.
DaBrandonSphere Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
What he posted on my profile was a whine that I had comments disabled on one of my deviations. I think I know which one he was talking about. The kid could've saved himself a lot of trouble by sending a private message with his critique instead of picking a fight with me on my public profile page.

Great things are based on constructive criticism and by disabling comments, you've hindered your own improvement. If you cannot listen to criticism, even if it may put you down, then you don't have a good mind set. Open yourself to the opinions of others, whether they are helpful, or not, just listen to what people have to say.

I know that you may end up blocking me, (which is cowardly), though, that is all I have to say.

You ever played Command and Conquer? Can you draw Kane as a Middle Eastern man since he's suppose to be the Abrahamic Cain?
