My Name is Brad and I run Monster Ego Studios. I guess I best tell you a little about myself, though as I write this there is no 'You'. I don't mean this in some deep philosophical way, or even a Keanu Reeves Matrix outlook, I mean I have just set up Monster Ego today and have no social presence so I am essentially writing this to myself. (What a Egotistical weirdo).
I have always enjoyed being involved in the creative environment though unfortunately I lack the talent in any capacity to draw, howeverI like to think my strength lies in creative imagination (which does not have any external residual manifestation so you can tell it is really useful). I spend the majority of my time thinking up creative stories for the creatures I create and sculpt, and now I have decided to turn these stories and creatures into something that resembles a mental breakdown manifesting in resin based figures and toys and digital mythical realm with artwork. Very much in demand I can imagine.
I primarily use digital sculpting tools such as Zbrush and then print these in a 3D printer for resin casts, though I do also do the occasional clay/sculpt based sculpt too.
If you take a look at my 'Compendium' section you can see the creatures I have created already and keep an eye out for the new ones arriving all the time. This compendium section will be where I keep all the stories and creatures, like a mix up of Darwin's origin of species and a less commercially driven pokedex. Some of these will be turned into Art Toys to purchase such as the Lacuna Sapling, some will be available as blank sculpts to paint while others remains purely for the story of Amaranthine.
I also am a strong believer in helping push unknown artists, so you will contstantly see as I go along new artists illustrations for the creatures I create. Usually I will have a guest artist for each series, though occasionally we will comminsions a one off just for fun.
I believe the Arttoy and digital artist community is and amazing group of talented and friendly people. I want to try to explore ways of communicating with the community, sharing ideas, pushing concepts and creating new groups.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the world I have created, and please, if you have any questions, chuck them my way. You can see all my contact details in the contact tab.
P.S Dont feed the Zombies after midnight, they become far less cuddly.........Or is that Mogwais
