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.

MAY 2022 Character concepts for a mythical, anthropomorphized creature.

JULY 2022 Illustrated concepts for some vampiric characters. For both I wanted to focus on dramatic, moody lighting as well as drawing more stylistically than I usually do as an experiment. I intended to draw two very distinct characters that would stand out amongst a lineup of other characters. The second character is inspired by 70s fashion.

JANUARY 2022 A concept of a group of family members. I designed them to appear aristocratic but eccentic, with colours that relate to each other and extremely stylized, unique designs and silhouettes.

AUGUST 2020 Character sprites made for a visual novel project. The characters in the game are inspired by monsters, myths, and legends. The sprites were designed to be clear, defined, and highly stylized, with bold black lines and thick white outlines reminiscent of stickers that help them pop from the backgrounds in the game.
