About M. BrookeS



M. BrookeS | The Art of Melody Brooke Safken | @she1badelf

M. BrookeS is an award winning illustrator and instructor at Colorado Mesa University. Born and raised in Grand Junction, Colorado, she received her B.F.A. in Animation and Motion Graphics from Colorado Mesa University with a concentration in illustration and concept development in 2014. Currently, she is pursuing a Graduate Degree at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Located in the heart of the Morrison Formation, she specializes in Paleontological Art and Creature Design with a strong foundation in vertebrate anatomy. Her work can be found internationally, including promotional art for the film Jurassic World, museum reconstructions, businesses, and private collections. She is ever expanding upon her artistic talents and is currently working on her own graphic novels, The Bearer Chronicles, and an educational children's book, Life of Ally.




Life of Ally | About This Project

Paleo Art, or artistic work that attempts to depict prehistoric life using current scientific evidence, is a prolific branch of scientific illustration. Paleo Art is typically divided into three categories, Paleontologic Illustration, Digital Modeling, and Sculptural Reconstructions. These three methods are interwoven and frequently work together to further our understanding of ancient life. As a professional paleontological illustrator, I focus on 2D renderings - such as paintings of reconstructed dinosaurs, extinct mammals, and environments.

How does this come into play for Patrons? Life of Ally 


The Bearer Chronicles | About This Project

Enchanted stones have reduced the world of Amae to toxic ash. Disease, corrupted creatures, and misdeeds run rampant though the dying lands. The god-kings who bear the semi-sentient stones are omnipotent, and their will is unbreakable...Or so it is believed. The Bearer Chronicles is a generational comic cataloging journeys through hardship, slavery, loss, power, and redemption. But are honorable actions enough to turn the tide and save the world?

My long-awaited series, The Bearer Chronicles, will begin release on Weboon in 2020! This comic is made possible through community support via Patreon, which ensures that I can take time away from commissions to work on advancing the project. The Bearer Chronicles has been my vision since 2001 when I was 9 years old. Since that young age, I have been developing the seeds of this world, characters, and creatures for 19 years. The saga has grown as I have, finally culminating into this comic project! After all of this time, I finally feel that I have accomplished the level of artistry needed to bring my story to life.



Why Should You Become A Patron?

On top of ensuring the continuance of these projects, Patrons receive extra incentive! Have you ever wondered about the work involved in creating professional dinosaur reconstructions? Looking for insight about illustration or comic creation? Want to see cool art? Here's your chance! As a Patron, you will have access to exclusive content only available via Patreon, including discounts, exclusive sketches, early access to comic pages, artistic insights, and behind-the-scenes posts about how I create my art.

Thank you for taking this artistic journey with me! I look forward to creating a community with you.
