Quit looking at my art, pervert.


Is your art in here? Well, consider yourself welcomed.




NatahanKataka's Profile Picture
Nathan Kartak
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied

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.

I am also a gamer and co-host of a gaming channel called HorseFeathers! Come check us out if you'd like!

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 speedpaint videos, which can be found here:

Thank you for dropping by!
It's been a while since I've scrawled out another journal on here detailing the status of my well being, as per the usual, so I'll spare the apologies and get right to it.

I've gotten so, so incredibly busy.

For the first time in a good handful of years, I've somehow managed to get myself a job. This is a pretty big deal since my deeply rooted anxiety previously kept me from obtaining and maintaining a job. This new job I have have, however, seems to be something I can handle. To sum it up as quickly as possible, I drive back and forth between a Napa storefront and their warehouse, retrieving what they need and delivering parts to certain locations. Driving is something I very much enjoy, so it's been working out for me.

Also, a YouTube Gaming Channel.

Some of you may be aware that I am the co-host of a Let's Play channel on YouTube called Horsefeathers. It was something I kicked up a few years ago just for the hell of it, but it's slowly becoming something much bigger than I had anticipated. A lot of my time has been put into it as a result, which is certainly something I'm not complaining about. I get that Let's Play channels have been running rampant on YouTube for the past several years and have thoroughly exacerbated the attention spans of many people, so I won't ask that you watch it if it's not your cup of tea. However, you will be seeing bits and pieces of it on here since I design thumbnails for our videos.

A good amount has already been uploaded. Mostly Splatoon stuff. I love Splatoon.

Oh, and my Comic.

Eeesh, this is painful for me. How long has it been since I released the latest chapter? March 30th, 2015? Ouch.

I have been miraculously still working on it. The ninth chapter is in the lining stage, which isn't terribly far. With all the aforementioned things going on in my life, it's ridiculously hard for me to set aside some time for my poor comic. I know a few of you are very interested in the series, and it means the world to me. It bums me out that it has to be pushed aside constantly. I can't make any promises on release dates, but I will promise you that I won't give up on it.

Anyway, that's about it, really. Life is changing in many unexpected ways for me right now, and I'm having fun trying to keep up with it, even if it does scare me a bit.

See you guys around.

Stay beautiful.

Journal History


I think it's rather hysterical how there's just an explosion of colors happening in my gallery thanks to Splatoon.
Valentines Milk by NatahanKataka
Valentines Milk
After sneaking in as much sketching as I possibly could while at work, I managed to finish this.

This is milk-ko's persona/mascot which you can see here:

I thought her design was really cute and felt like I had to try drawing her. This was a fun exercise. Hope you like it, Milk! I also tried to enhance her boobs a bit -- not sure if they're still too small, haha.

Happy Valentines, y'all!

Team Future! Splatoon Splatfest by NatahanKataka
Team Future! Splatoon Splatfest
Aaaand here's the artwork for Team Future. If you haven't seen the episode yet, you can watch it here.

Not sure how I feel about this piece, to be honest. Inspiration was running low.

Clip Studio
Team Past! Splatoon Splatfest by NatahanKataka
Team Past! Splatoon Splatfest


Okay, so this is my first time trying to draw a dinosaur of any kind and it turned out... Okay? So I can't draw horses or dogs or cats... But I can dish out a half-way decent distinct creature?!

This is bullshit.

Also, naked inkling.

Sweirde's Inkling by NatahanKataka
Sweirde's Inkling
Whenever I see an Inkling off into the distance flinging ink wildly with absolute reckless abandon, I know it's either milk-ko or Sweirde.

But this is Kira S -- Sweirde's Inkling. Happy Birthday, Sweirde! Hope you like this!

Man, I am absolutely in love with your art work and comic. I'm so happy I was able to find you! Keep being awesome, my man!

Thank you so much! It means a lot to hear that, and it means even more that you like my comic.
Darkesper Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2015  Student Digital Artist
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.
NatahanKataka Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I'd be ecstatic if you drew fanart -- I always enjoy getting fanart! Go right ahead, and thank you!

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. 
NatahanKataka Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
You can use Kataka, since that guy has been given even less attention than Natahan.
Ari-Uzumaki-Elric Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2014
