My name is Jennifer Miller, all though some may know me by my online alias or "penname", Nambroth.
I currently reside in Western NY state, near lake Erie, in the USA. It's a pretty rural area and I spend a lot of my time out in the woods. I draw a lot of inspiration from the land around me! I paint mostly wildlife (with a focus on birds) and fantasy creatures (such as dragons, gryphons, etc) and won the Federal Duck Stamp for the 2015-16 stamp. I also craft jewelry, sculpture, and realistic bird masks.

If you are looking for prints, originals, or jewelry, please visit my online store! featherdust.storenvy.com

I also work for Windstone Editions. Check them out if you are a fantasy fan! www.windstoneeditions.com/


FAQ stuff:
You may not use, alter, or re-post my work in any way without specific permission. Please see this journal entry for use guidelines if you are curious. nambroth.deviantart.com/journa…

Commissions, trades, requests, contests, features, etc:
Commissions: Closed until late 2016 - Early 2017
Professional Work: Very limited availability through 2016
Trades: I regret that I rarely if ever have time to take new trades.
Requests: I am sorry, but as you probably guessed, I don't have time to do requests.
Contests: Thank you for asking, but as is the trend... I don't have time to participate in individual-run contests.
Features: I have been getting a lot of requests for me to feature people, causes, events, and so forth in my journal. While I am strongly dedicated to try and help people, at this point there simply isn't enough time in my day for me to research each cause (to make sure it is legit and feel comfortable promoting) and write journals for them all. It would then be very unfair for me to feature some and not others. This means I have a "no features" policy.
Interests
After talking to schools, helping students, and talking with other artists over the last two years, I realized that there is a need for guidance in this subject. More and more, both students and teachers turn to the internet for aid. I created this guide for two main reasons: 1) To give junior artists and duck stamp art newcomers a place to start, and 2) To help explain how to legally and ethically reference photographs (especially if one is unable to get their own, which is the position for most Junior artists).
This is not a perfect piece of literature, and there is no One True Way to make a nice duck stamp artwork– this is truly just meant to give beginners someplace to start.
Please do feel free to share this with anyone that you know that might benefit from it!

Hello, Nambroth! As you probably know, there is a contest for Kubo and the Two Strings in which has a 3,000 USD Prize (along with lesser prizes).
I'd like to collab with someone with great skill it the digital arts, and you are one of the several artists I picked to ask for help.

What you'd be doing? The digital art/coloring/detail/making it awesome!
What I'd be doing? A digital sketch of the scene.
 I don't have anything to offer, other then the prize itself.

Let me know if your interested. :3

Your drawings are just gorgeous. I was wondering if you'd be willing to help me on a tattoo I'm doing I've got the face down and stuff like that but I'm struggling with the feather work.

I can't seem to find any information on your pricing for a bird mask. How much does it average out to be? Do you do the sculpting most of the time, or just the feathering? I'm interested in a mask of a Montagu's harrier.

Oh, thank you very much, I didn't see that link. I understand you are not open for commissions currently, but I'm curious how you would estimate the head of a harrier. The document says a basic head of a raven is about $900, being solid black. A male harrier is a BoP with greys for the most part; would this be in your lower or upper scale of complexity for pricing? Thank you very much for your time.

I cannot say at this time, due to the variable availability to an appropriate blank (base) to work upon. Grey furs of good quality and length are also hard to come by, but this too can change. Montagu's Harriers (males) do not have terribly complex markings on the head so I would very tentatively guess middle-range for pricing.

I can't tell you how many times I've seen your art on Google images, and wished I could know if the artist had a dA.
When I found you here, I was overjoyed. You are a great artist. Thank you for being awesome!

Also, you really need Core. You deserve it. I'd totally share a Give-and-get core with you if I could.

Thank you very much, that's kind of you! I wonder if the google images have my signature/website removed? Alas!
