glwcld asked: Your Babylon just got reblogged onto my dash and so naturally I was intrigued and stalked your blog a lil bit. It took me about ten minutes to realise you were the artist at MCM back in May who my friend and I saw & even though we were too intimidated to come take a look at your stuff/say hi, you looked awesome and your art is incredible uwu

I’m always a bit sad when people find me too intimidating to approach, because I promise you, I’m really nice!  I’m always at MCM - come over and say hi next time :)  I won’t eat you, I promise :) I’m all bark, no bite!

Babylon, my sweet darling void horror friend. I’ve drawn it a couple of times.

Hooves (??) claws and mask by me. Bodysuit is a pearl white one from AliciaZenobia on Etsy.  It’s nearly complete - I have plans for a dribbly slime collar to conceal the zip, but I need to learn how to work with liquid latex first!  I’ve never used it as I’ve been allergic to latex most of my life.

Only 12 more demons to draw and I’m done.  And then it’s just text editing and the foreword and it is complete.  The whole fucking thing.

Another gorgeous one, #33, Gaap.  This one had issues with translation: I got two sources, both of whom had translated the latin differently, and the latin itself is ambiguous because it’s handwritten.  So he either appears “when the sun is in the southern signs” or… “in the form of a doctor”.  I went with the latter because how the hell do you illustrate the former, come on.
hahaha the amount of work I’m putting into this is ridiculous. let me tell you how irritating I find the Dictionnaire Infernal ho ho ho

Anonymous asked: okay so get ready for a really strange ask BUT hi I really really love your art because goddamn it's wonderful and SO MANY BEAUTIFUL MONSTERS BLESS YOU but so I'm a genderweird person with a vagina and really intense dysphoria but your drawings of your character Babylon make me feel less insecure about my previously mentioned organ. I hope that doesn't offend you, I don't know if the association was intended, but thanks. Your art is just fantastic in general.

stammsternenstaub:

This isn’t a strange ask at all.  Babylon has a monster cunt :)  I love drawing things with monster cunts, because a) I too have a monster cunt and b) you get lots of drawings of phallic monstrous genitalia but preeeetty muuuuch no monstrous cunts.  But those are the best kind!

I’m pleased Babylon and I could help a little :)  I’ve done lots of it, if you care to peruse the archives…

An ask sent to my personal that I think would benefit my art blog…

And now, #24, Naberius!  “Appears in the form of a crow, fluttering about the circle”.  Handy, thanks.  Gives me the license to make a manglecrow.
There are so many demons that appear in the form of birds, I swear to god.  Good job I like the bloody things.

murdermilesuperstition asked: It's not only that, but they make you sell a small print for at least about 13 dollars, I think and that is the minimum price where you don't even make ANY profit, not even a cent, so you have to go higher than that to actually get money for your work. Overall, not worth it, plus, it seems like there is a certain... type, so to say, of artwork that sells well there, while the rest is pretty neglected. Hope that made sense.

Urgh :/  I’m better off sticking with grotesquely miniscule con prices over that, ha ha.  Not sure what “type” of artwork sells there neither. Thanks for your input!

crowsight answered: IIRC Society6 takes an *enormous* cut of what you make.

Oh man, I didn’t know that.  Thanks for the heads-up.  And also thank you SO MUCH for the order just now!!! :D :D  I wonder if S6 is still worth it, though?  Ugh, profit-working-out :/  I’d probably have to sell lots before it became worthwhile and… yeah.


atr0cityexhibiti0n answered: It might be worth a try, but I had no luck with it :(

I’m sorry to hear that :/  crowsight says they take a massive slice and I think I’d need to be way popularer than I am to make it worthwhile…

saxifraga-x-urbium answered: do you have a redbubble or a print all over me account?

I don’t, no.  PAOM looks *amazing*, especially on the stuff you’ve done with them, but also kinda expensive and I don’t know if my work’s worth it!  By which I mean, not by quality - by will-people-buy-it-itude…

Thanks so much for your input, guys <33333

PS. If you were thinking of buying anything from my shop, give me this evening to work out what stock’s left then go for it, hahaha

Should I get a Society6?  I mean, I’m debating because it’s an easy way to make wearables, but literally bloody nothing ever gets sold from my existing shop, so should I bother???
