Kathaja's Profile Picture
Hello there (:

I create traditional drawings for the most part, however I like to combine them with digital color and whatever can be used in a digital painting software. My favourite subjects are extraterrestrial or fantastic life forms and creatures of all sorts.

Feel free to leave a comment, I like to hear what you think. Ask me if you have questions and be sure to let me know how I can improve my work in case you have suggestions :happy:

Thank you for your visit!


I'm going to Greeze for a week :nuu: :nuu:

I'll answer comments/notes as soon as I'm back c: (or if I find time earlier )

See you (:
This is one of my aliens of which I have not made a serious drawing yet, well, untill now (: There will be changes regarding the design tho. I couldn't quite nail down what I had in mind for these creeps :ohmygod:. And I can imagine that some of you might not like the weird arms? But they will stay heh^^'
Process of 'Stormy'
I thought it can't hurt to make another process-image (: It's about the digital editing after finishing the drawing on paper. Personally I really like to look at this stuff when it's done by others. Therefore I want to provide a little insight to my own creations, maybe you find them interesting as well. I've kept my descriptions short, so let me know if you need me to explain something in detail.
PS: I've done this steps in Photoshop, but I'm sure there are similar ways in other programmes.

Have a nice weekend! :happy:

I almost forgot: Here is the final work.
And this is where I got the texture from. Thank's Sirius-sdz. Your textures are gorgeous x3
Hey, long time no upload D: I was practising clothing.. because I never felt comfortable when drawing them (one reason why so many of my alien creatures are naked). Now I have tons of fabric sketches and curtains and towels and ribbons and whatnot. Would be worth a sketch dump.
Anyway, maybe some of you remember this? It was one of my first attempts to continue a traditional drawing in Photoshop c: Back then I just played around with values and made a few extra lines. That tousled [Darakay] up there is basically the same character as the one I drew about a year ago, but now he looks more like I want him to look like - it's [Sarkon Ardaris], in a stormy condition plus clothing (:

Edit: I've made a process image of the digital editing. You can find it here.
