I’ve got a massive art-boner for all of depingo’s artwork.
Anonymous asked: Hello! I've always wondered, is Charlie your given name or is it short for something?
Technically speaking it’s Charlene. Apparently my biological Father straight up refused to let me have a ‘boys’ name back in 1988, but everyone has always called me Charlie. I prefer it :)
My current phone wallpaper, because it’s the tits!
Anonymous asked: If you were self taught, how did you grasp the human form?
Just through practice. I’ve drawn since I was a kid, as far back as I can remember. I’ve always enjoyed drawing people so I it’s worked out to be an awful lot of practice over the years.

Anonymous asked: hi charlie! i believe you've said before that you didn't study art at university and are for the most part self-taught, so i was wondering how you ended up at your current job as a concept artist? were you actively looking to go into art full-time? i love your work, you are a huge inspiration to me :)
That’s right, I did go to University but I didn’t study art. I studied Multimedia, mostly because I knew I wanted to go into art but I had no idea what kind of role I wanted, so I just jumped into that course rather than floating around. I grew up wanting to be an animator, but soon realized painting was where it was at for me :)
I taught myself how to paint digitally whilst I was in uni. In fact I spent most of my time painting rather than studying for my course! I kept on painting and then around a year after finishing school I was contacted by the Atomhawk director; my boss. If I hadn’t gotten a job there, I would have carried on painting and applying to other places. I definitely intended to go into art full time.

You can get my current brush set here!
Fools Gold Prints turned out lovely! Can’t wait to send them out to people :)
Anonymous asked: I just want you to know that I messaged you a while back asking you to look at a picture I created and you never answered back. I know that you might get lots of messages but I messaged you not just on here, but on Twitter, too. I hope that if I ever get 'famous' for my art I will answer questions as much as possible. It's just common courtesy.
Unfortunately I have hundreds of messages to sift through. If you’d taken a moment to look through my Tumblr or formspring or DA; you’ll see I’ve answered hundreds of them. So, that ‘famous’ line isn’t washing with me. Unfortunately I don’t have the time to answer every query and critique every piece of art I’m shown. It may surprise people but I’m not a feedback machine and I’m not obligated to be one.
Have a nice day, anonymous.
Another commission for the lovely Tillman, of his character Lilith. A character I’ve previously painted.
Photoshop CS5 & Wacom Intuos 5.
So I’m trying to get stuff done but Indi is insisting on falling asleep in my lap. I kind of have to let her because I attacked her with ear drops earlier and I’m pretty sure she hated me for a while…
Just a quick update to let you lovely people know you can buy Limited Edition Fine Art prints in my Etsy!
All prints are limited to a run of 50 each, and it’s the only place you can buy hand signed and numbered prints directly from me. It’s also the only place certain prints will be for sale, period.
