MATTHEW CHAPMAN

I'm a visual artist and 3D modeller, with a personal stylistic approach towards gothic-inspired themes and environments. In addition to art making, I also create music, costume model and act. I maintain a profile on DeviantArt where I engage in a volume of commissioned work, as well, a Patreon page to feature extra artistic content for paying patrons, to build a community for supporting the progress of my projects.
