Hey, I'm Harrie! Nice to meet you!

I'm a disabled white lesbian living in the UK. I'm primarily a comic artist, much of my time is spent towards preparing my comic Heart of the Storm for release.


You can find my commission status and info here. I do not take requests, but if you have an art related question you're welcome to ask it and I'll get to you when I can.

Info about my different brush sets and where to get them can be found on my brushes page.

I've written a number of tutorials over the years, you can find a collection of them on my advice & tutorials page. Periodically I will ask if there's anything people would like advice on if I don't have any new posts in mind, but you can also contact me if you have any art related questions like this. Do be aware that my response may take some time.

General Art: Clip Studio Paint EX

I like CSP a lot because it's:

  • Geared towards making art (unlike Photoshop, an image editor), so it feels very nice to draw in (very similar to Paint Tool SAI)!
  • (EX specifically) Geared towards sequential artists, with features dedicated to making comics and animations.

It's a very nice program! It's very much like a mix of PS & SAI, but with additional features geared towards comic making (perspective rulers, page management, panelling tools, etc), and a nice animation timeline.

My process is pretty program agnostic so if you're trying to get a similar feel to your art using CSP won't help in particular, but it's a nice program and I highly recommend checking it out. It goes on sale pretty often, generally around march, june, & november.

Pixel Art: Aseprite

Aseprite is just a very nice program for pixelling in! It does take a little getting used to, as it has its own workflow, but once you get a grasp on how it works it's very intuitive I think! It's timeline is particularly nice I think.

If you're looking for a free pixel art program, GraphicsGale is a classic which became freeware a while ago! I greatly prefer Aseprite, but hey! It's free, and it has all the features you need :^)

3D Modelling: Blender

I used to use Maya, but then I found out about the 2.8 update for blender actually completely overhauled its UI & reworked the program's workflow to be more intuitive and decided to check it out, and boy howdy! It's SO much nicer to model in than Maya, AND its free. sexy as hell I think! There's lots of video tutorials on youtube which can help you get started if you're interested in learning 3D.

When it's ready! You can keep an eye on its progress by looking at the sidebar. You can also keep an eye on my blog.

I would be delighted! Please ping me on tumblr with @diosmaden, or on twitter with @captainharrie if you do ♥

You can find information about my characters and what projects they relate to on my characters page and on my ToyHouse.

Maybe!! I'm not done with it, but I can't guarantee that I'll go all the way to the league with it as I started it as a way to test the waters with long form comic making and always intended to prioritise original works if I had something I wanted to make—which I do! But while it's currently on the backburner, when HotS launches and I've a little more time and can spread my focus a little more, I do intend to pick it back up.
