Artist | Professional | Digital Art
My name is Daryl Toh Liem Zhan. I'm an illustrator and concept artist, also specializing in character-design, background design and storyboards. I hold a Diploma in Animation and Multimedia Design, and a Bachelor of Illustration degree from NMIT in Melbourne, Australia.

Currently a work-at-home freelance illustrator-for-hire after previously worked in the animation industry for five years in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Well, first of... I've been busy with a couple of freelance comic projects which are all fun. Just for starters, I've done a couple of character design and comic work with the folks of Imp House for their upcoming board game: Night of the Saucers. Be sure to check them out!

Second, I'm out in the middle of Egypt on a secret dig (No I'm not). I'm working with a talented writer from Canada named Luc Labelle on a four issue graphic novel full of Lovecraftian horrors. It's still all hush hush, so I'll be disappearing for sometime back and forth on it. But I promise to post some news about it when it is done (or when I survive from being eaten alive by whatever Eldritch creature out there).

Third but not least, I'll be setting sail to face some pirates in the upcoming prequel to the Aurelis Award winning graphic novel The Deep.The news was out on July 10th during Oz Comic Con in Melbourne, Australia during Gestalt Comics panel where they announced a slew of new comics and projects for the coming year, including the prequel I'm gonna work on that is: The Deep: Voyages of the Aronnax; revealed as the upcoming prequel to the all-ages comic The Deep: Here Be Dragons and The Deep Volume 2: The Vanishing Island. Set several centuries before the Will Nekton took his family exploring the titular depths of the ocean, the piratey adventure will again be written by award winning comic book writer, Tom Taylor! 

Also, my partner and I are in the midst of producing a horror comic anthology so that's something for you guys to look out for at the end of this year. So yes, many strange places to explore this year. I hope it isn't the last. For my regular watchers and friends, I'm always hanging out on Tumblr and will do so often from now on. For my new visitors and watchers, welcome to my gallery, thank you for enjoying my work, hope you had a great time, and be inspired. 

I'm still taking commissions but via Gmail BUT with very limited slots because of my busy comic work schedules. I will ignore all notes send through the DevART notes here so heads up on that. (Don't say I didn't warn you guys). 

I think I cover it all for now. Till then, take care and be kind to one another.

if you do fav the entire gallery, civilization will be in a standstill, empires crumble and politicians choke on their own lies and bleed from their asses.... well that's not a bad thing. Do it. 

Yes I love sharks.
