Sharing: Feel free to share my work via social networks, forums, e-mails and other such ways, as long as you're sure to credit me as The Nuclear Jackal and link back to my deviantART page. You may not reproduce my work for commercial means. My work is not stock. Please ask permission in advance if you wish to use it in a piece of artwork of your own.

Information about me: Most of my work focuses on Graphic Novels, Comics and Writing. I am inspired by fantasy, sci-fi, philosophy and adventure and much of what I do involves imagining stories and worlds and creating believable characters (or, in a lot of cases, unbelievable characters made of randomness). I was born and raised in Wales by a Canadian mother and a Danish father. The Nuclear Jackal is a character that I created and he has become my internet identity.

So many people have drawn NJ in their own style that I've made a Hub for all the artwork :XD:

This is in regards to the character Nuclear Jackal B-) NJ was originally a logo I drew in College. I then made a surreal self-portrait I did based on the logo, and he soon became very popular as a character and makes appearances in my comic, Johnny Steve's Miraculous Trip
NJ himself doesn't have a backstory (feel free to make your own backstory if you like). However he's a shapeshifter who can transform into various forms, including a female version of himself, and he can also duplicate himself into many forms, so he can be in two places at once. 
All artwork regarding the Nuclear Jackal that is uploaded by me, NuclearJackal , is official. Artwork done by others is unofficial (and awesome too! :clap:
Are Nuclear Jackals a species? Well officially there is only one Nuclear Jackal, who can take on different forms and multiply itself. However, if Nuclear Ja

Daily Deviation award
Dad's Nostalgia by NuclearJackal
Hello comrades! 


I have decided to start a new method of artistic motivation. First things first, I plan to upload a grey illustration every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Other artwork will perhaps be uploaded on Saturdays if there is any of that kind available to share (I have some comics and colour illustrations on the way, oooh yes eue) so the goal is 3 illustrations every week!


Bring it on B-) 

Here are the ones done so far :la:
