I am a man with a passion for art, music and storytelling. I'm trying my hardest to do what I love for a living.

Please enjoy my gallery, or if you'd like to hear my music, check the links below:

Natahan Studios on SoundCloud!

Natahan Music on YouTube!


Also, comics! I make them. Read the one I'm currently working on, "WuWanan and the Man who Croaked", here!

You may also be interested in my shows, such as Gadgetry, which can be found on my Natahan Studios Channel on YouTube.

Oh, and a Facebook page thingy as well: Natahan Studios on Facebook

Thank you for dropping by!

YOOOOOOOOO

I got my comic test-printed! It's such a weird, yet inspiring sensation to hold two years of work in my hands (and kinda disappointing that 124 pages makes for a relatively thin book, haha).





Even though I'm super psyched to have it in printed form, it's far from perfect. I accidentally made the entire comic using the wrong dimensions, so for this print, I had to shrink full-bleed pages into a non-full-bleed format. This, understandably, confused the good folks at Ka-Blam, and some round-about compromises had to be made. Not only that, but I left errors in the submission, so two pages are swapped while another is entirely missing. But, that's why this is a test print. The actual quality of the print is fantastic -- I just need to do a bit (as in a lot) of editing work on my end to make it even better.

My family is urging me to submit this to a publishing company, but... Yeesh, I dunno. I'd love to, but I just don't think it'd fair well, in all honesty. I think the first handful of chapters would need to be redone for it to be considered, but we'll see. Either way, the ninth chapter is officially in the works, so be looking forward to that way on down the road.

If you've got a comic you're thinking of printing, I can now say that Ka-Blam is a very good service to use. However (and this probably goes for every other service out there), it's balls-to-the-wall confusing trying to understand and remember the required specifications. My only complaint with Ka-Blam is that they don't have all of this information conveniently consolidated in one, easy to find place on their website. Other than that, I like'em. They were patient with my illiteracy.

I'm gonna go back to fawning over my comic now.

Evelin's Mirth Promotional Poster by NatahanKataka
Evelin's Mirth Promotional Poster
"Evelin's Mirth" is a horror exploration game a friend and I are working on. We've gotten pretty far in production and are planning to have the whole thing wrapped up after a few more months. The game will be playable for free once we get to that point.

The game itself is being developed in GameMaker, which forces us to work with limited features. However, we feel that these limitations give the game a bit more character.

[Some Side Notes]

This game has no canonical relation to my comic, WuWanan and the Man who Croaked, despite the similarities. My friend and I simply borrowed a lot from my comic series to essentially use as placeholders in the game, but they eventually stuck.

On the Brink of Death [Comparison] by NatahanKataka
On the Brink of Death [Comparison]
Then and now.

The original I did of this always bugged me. I did such a poor job on the anatomy -- I'm not sure what I was even thinking. It's crazy how much of a difference four years of practice can make. It was pretty fun coming back to this piece. I plan to do more like this.

Hey, would it be alright if I drew Wu and Croak some time, man? I especially would like to have a go at drawing Wu.

ey!!! 

Im gonna steal one of your characters for a meme, kthxbai!!

HAHAHA. I was wondering if I can feature either Natahan or Kataka (Since it is indeed fall) in a character meme. I'm one character short and I need a male.

You can use Kataka, since that guy has been given even less attention than Natahan.
