Carousel Rhinoceros by nasubionna
Carousel Rhinoceros
Second in what I hope will become a series of animals inspired by carousels, the Black Rhinoceros.  Featuring the Cattle Egret and the flag of South Africa.
Copic marker on 11 x 14" smooth bristol board.
Engorgio, REDUCTO! by nasubionna
Engorgio, REDUCTO!
My interpretation of the scene in the "Deathly Hallows" movie in the tent where Harry is messing around with his newly acquired wand (I think it belonged to a snatcher, no?)  Anyway, this is how I would have drawn it if it was a book scene rather than a movie scene.  Lots of fun.  :)     Copic marker on paper, 9 x 12".    
Carousel Tapir by nasubionna
Carousel Tapir
First in what I hope will become a series of animals inspired by carousels, the Malayan tapir.  I wanted to have flora/fauna that are from similar regions as the main animal in the saddle/bridal/harness, so featured in this one are the durian fruit, the banded broadbill, bamboo orchid, Malaysian rail babbler and the flag of Malaysia.  
Copic marker on 11 x 14" smooth bristol board.
Baxter Stockman by nasubionna
Baxter Stockman
Commission of 2012 Baxter Stockman, aged up a bit.  This is still a pretty experimental coloring technique for me, so I think my attempts at texture made him look a bit older than I intended.  But as long as the client is happy, then I'm happy!
Prismacolor pencils and Copic marker on smooth bristol board, 9 x 12".    
Hey, so this doesn't happen very often, but I am accepting art commissions.  I have a little bit of time, and am feeling artistically inspired, and need some money.  So, affordable commissions are open!  
Please send me a note or email ( and let's talk about it!  I think a good way to go is to look at my existing work here on Deviantart and tell me what sort of style you're looking for.  But I'm thinking that a relatively straightforward B&W figure/portrait should start around $25 or so.  Keep in mind that my art is 99.9% traditional media on paper, so I can either email you a high-res scan for free, or for a few extra bucks mail you the original (recommended - my art always looks better in person than scanned).
I hope to hear from you!  :D

I'm mostly self-taught, sometimes do professional work, but don't get to draw as much as I'd like to these days because I am usually tired and/or at my day job and/or tending to my small flock of sheep and goats. But it's fun when artistic inspiration strikes.

Hi, thanks for the invite!  I don't usually participate in these kind of things because I don't have a lot of time.  But it sounds fun, so I hope it's a big success!

Alright, perfectly fine. No problem at all with you not joining. You're choice, not mine.
Just one more thing: If you have any friends that are also Disney fans & are great artists, please spread the word! The more people that are interested, the more chance this Walt passing art jam will happen!

Do you take free requests
nasubionna Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
No, I'm sorry I do not.  I barely have time to draw what I want, let alone free stuff.  I sometimes take paid commissions, but very rarely.  Sorry!
