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!

So, the Audition Deadline has finally been crossed and the judges have subsequently set our fates into motion. Out of the staggering 190+ entrants, only 32 will be chosen, which makes for a pretty cut-throat final roster considering the amount of talent that has auditioned. I'm still excited for it, regardless if I make it in or not, because a tournament of 32 will make for an intense, high-production 5-round race to victory. Whether I participate or watch, it's going to be a blast either way.

Clearly, I'm excited for this. I will consider getting into this tournament an accomplishment in and of itself.

Best of luck to us all!

Wooow...

The reception for this new site layout has been overwhelmingly negative -- nothing but hatred, disgust and threats of abandonment. Good goddamn heavens, people.

"I hate the new interface! Bring back the old one!"

It hasn't gone anywhere. All of the old ways of browsing artwork, sorting through your deviations and so forth are still intact. You just need to click "Browse" and BOOM; there's your old beloved, grid-styled way of perusing the site. And heaven forbid that they move the Message Center and profile menu to the right, just like most other sites are oriented. If you look at things from a business standpoint, their actions make a lot of sense. By mimicking the layouts of other popular social media websites, they in turn make this one more familiar and accessible for newcomers. The more newcomers we get, the larger our overall audience becomes. I don't really see the problem with that.

The Watch Feed plays a massive part in furthering our exposure. Being able to see who has +Faved what in their "Collections" is particularly helpful, although some people claim that it is an "invasion of their privacy". I can understand that, and they should make it so you can hide your activities from your Watchers. However, despite the always-existing ability to browse through peoples favorites, the Watch Feed delivers it to us. That's key. A lot of media that used to go under our noses is finally being surfaced through an easily digestible format.

Status Updates are also very helpful. You can keep people up to speed with small updates without having to write a full-blown journal -- basically, it just makes it easier to keep in touch and interact with one another. Nothing wrong with that.

And with all that said, yes... dA is becoming more and more like Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter -- whatever the hell. Why? Because it's honestly a smart move. Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter have all proven, with their layouts, that they can circulate media well, which is why they're the juggernauts of social media. I'm sure many would vehemently disagree with me on that, but the statistics don't lie. They are indisputably some of the highest-trafficked sites. They work, and dA is no fool for trying to follow suite.

DeviantArt still needs to make many improvements, but I understand and like where they're going.

It's been a while since I've actually just drew a simple, stand-alone, unrelated-to-any-story-or-franchise picture. So, here's this.
