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.

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:

JSMT will keep going for another few days. Once Act 11 Chapter 3 is done, it'll once again go on hiatus whilst I work on other things. I will also upload some deleted scenes at the end (all at once too ;D)
