My gallery of artwork, illustrations, sculptures and jewellery, all arranged by category, and guaranteed not to damage your eyes too badly.

Random Favourites

Thousands of images from my favourite artists and friends here on DA. I have well over a thousand images in here. When i decided to sort them by category it took about three hours. :)


my wishlist is another folder for me to put my favourite artists work in, and thereby make my page more colourful and sexier.


See you in the New Year.

Hi, I'm D.Millar/Borntothevoid. I can and have worked in a professional capacity as an artist, although for now I'm concentrating on developing certain skills, (in between moving to a different city) so I'm not planning on taking on commissions or jobs for the next few months.

I have spent most of my life studying art, (six of those in education), and have a list of qualifications six pages long. Because of health issues I have never studied above Hnd/first year art college level, there were times I couldnt commit four years of my life to college, and at 36 I doubt I'll go to art college.

My experience covers painting in most media, sculpture, various styles of drawing and design, welding/forging and jewellery, although my focus is entirely on drawing, painting and sculpture right now.

Once I have moved I'll start considering working in fine art or illustration again.

I am trained in various techniques/styles. This page isnt representative of my current level, I will update with a new collection soon. I am also planning on launching a website and facebook page dedicated to my art.

I have a great many other interests - staying fit and healthy, playing and writing my own music, writing short stories and periodically attempting my novel.

I have some health concerns, so as an artist/designer I'm not currently looking to commit to anything that would take more than a couple of months to complete, however, i do hope in future to run evening classes, and pass on what I know of art (and hopefully my love of the creative arts) to the next generation, albeit in a small way.

I'm building up a new folio for a revamp of my page, and kinda a relaunch based on the work I have produced in the last couple of years. Then I'll start looking for work based on that.

Not bad man. Sorry, I was away up North with Alison for a couple of weeks. I'm going to start checking in every day again.

You still into 40k?

Hey man, sorry I havent been on DA again. I've meant to, but someone I knew has died this week and everything else has been secondary. Also DA doesnt seem as important when I'm not uploading stuff, and my page is long overdue for a revamp, which I've been putting off.

I was just asking about 40k cause the last time I saw you I remember you saying you wanted to display some of your skills through GW painting. I've kind of got back into it and other sci fi modeling, and I'm going to use that to push for page views on DA. I havent been doing as much drawing and painting lately, but I never stop for long, and I'm just about finished a five year mission project to develop my skills and put together a folio that really shows what I'm capable of.
