Sprouted greens look like Veins. by ToolKitten
Sprouted greens look like Veins.
A piece that was done for my Patreon supporters! A lucky few get this exclusive print as a reward!!! Join now for future rewards!

It all started with a thought I had right before I was falling asleep. "Sprouted greens look like veins". I even liked the sentence, so I guess thats what this is called. It took about 19 hours from a blank canvas in photoshop.

Love your art.

Actually searched for your dA gallery after finding your art here (, just making sure you know it's there, as there is no description crediting you or linking back here.

Hello, I am contacting people I have decided to watch and admire to tell them about a project we have underway.

Myself and Traumwelt (visit his DA page here-->nemoalleintraumwelt.deviantart…) have begun creating our first comic book together. It is called Old Harry's tale, and it is a supernatural and philosophical drama. The first six pages of Issue #1 will be submitted to Tumblr and DA

We call ourselves Scapegoat comics and all news of the project will be relayed here at the Scapegoat comics club -->… And I would like all those who watch me to join.

The project is going to be set to a kickstarter which will be linked to the club page later within the month. And all who join the club will have early access to the rewards including the free digital intro comic bening the rules.

If you want to join it is automatically approved, you just need to click a button. If you don't want to, that's fine. It's your choice after all.

Also even if you do not join the club I would be most pleased if you watched this video we made and tell us what you think-->…

Once again, you can ingore all of this. You have free will after all.

The prints deal on your store for the free prints, is the $100 a requirement before or after the discount that gets applied after purchase?  Wondering how many prints I have to buy.  :D
