Hello! Welcome to my portfolio website. My name is Miles, I'm an Australian-based illustrator, cartoonist, and designer, and I go by the online psuedonym "Ufochasing". I primarily use Clip Studio Paint and a Wacom Intuos Pro. Aside from illustration, I also create games, code webpages in HTML, and make music. I am inspired by anime figures, goth/punk fashion, FRUiTS magazine, eary 2000s video games and cartoons, toys from my childhood, Japanese artists, and horror media, among other things. I like drawing exaggerated and highly stylised characters and environments, and using bright, high contrast colour palettes with thick lines and angular shapes. I coded this website myself in HTML, and I created every graphic used on this site.

AUGUST 2021 Character portraits and sprites. Made for the engine RPG Maker VX Ace. The portraits were intended to be very stylised, with easy-to-read emotional expressions and a unique design for each character. The portraits, when paired with the sprites, give a player a clear idea of the appearance of each character.

FEBRUARY 2022 Commissions made for a client on Tumblr. They requested visual novel-style sprites of their original characters with alternate poses and expressions.

AUGUST 2022 A concept made for an album cover of ambient music I made. Mxied media using photography and digital art. I photographed a lava lamp and edited it using Photoshop filters, added typography also in Photoshop, added illustration in Microsoft Paint using a USB mouse, and added final adjustments in Photoshop.

FEBRUARY 2022 A reference I created for one of my Dungeons and Dragons characters. The goal was to create an incredibly colourful, whimsical looking character, while keeping him from looking garish or over-complicated. I also designed a weapon for him intended to relfect his personality, themes and motifs.
