Pinned toot

Hi! My name is Jay Holloway, and I am a freelance illustrator with a love for landscapes and monsters. Just as a heads up, some of my illustrations may contain horror/surreal elements, and body horror.

The past few days I did warmups where I was suggested 2 colors and a character! It was a lot of fun to play with limited color palette and I can't wait to revisit these in a few months after studying!

MP100 Season 2 Show more

More of my favorite side characters, this time is Claw lackey and Pokémon creepypasta enthusiast Matsuo.

I am enjoying the hell out of MP100 so here, have an AU where everything is exactly the same but Sakurai has a foam Minecraft sword.
The best way to warm up is through shitposting.

To the person who gave me unsolicited advice on how to deal with my “blotchy” cheeks: thank you for inspiring me to do a quick self portrait to remind myself how gorgeous my blush is. Also, go suck 20,000 lemons.

users! Doesn’t Procreate have a way you can create shapes/panels easily? And you can split the borders of them with a pen stroke? Or am I thinking of a different tablet drawing program?

Have you ever been so bored at work that you draw a Cymothoa exigua furry?

(Don’t google them unless you are ok with weird fish-tongue eating isopods)

I’ve had a lot of downtime at work, so I’ve been doodling a few of my OCs!

“-El” (they/them) is a seraph, and a pretty intense being overall. Mostly on account of angels being freaking terrifying
“The Hermit” (they/it) is a fey who is composed of a lantern and an animated deer skin. While not malevolent, they aren’t exactly the best help if you’re lost, but they will appear in dire situations.

I’m gonna make sure to do a post to feature a random artist each Sunday! Since there’s so many amazing artists here in the Fediverse, I will be sure to have enough features for the foreseeable future. I’d like to spotlight classical artists someday, but this Sunday post will be for artists who are currently living and definitely would appreciate your patronage.

If I can consistently do one a week for a few weeks, I’ll try to do 2-3 each Sunday thereafter.

Art Spotlight Sunday! (SFW and NSFW art in link) Show more

Was experimenting with fire/glowing and it kinda ended up a bust. I definitely want to do a big piece of this in the future!

I’ve been starting all my most recent watercolors with a super wet wash. I feel like it lays a great foundation!

Here’s something I learned about painting plants: it’s extremely uncommon for plants to have no warm undertones, so adding little bits of reds, browns, or purples makes them look much more realistic!
