Kathaja's Profile Picture
Hello (:

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 sofware. 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!

20-02-2017: If you are waiting for a response to a comment you've made, I'm going to answer soon.
I'm just experiencing a huge lack of free time right now.


Is this yours?

"Is this yours?"
His voice cut the silence like a knife. There was no need to turn; she already knew what the question was about. Nevertheless she spun around and met his piercing gaze. It gave nothing away, no surprise nor any hint of anger. If this was her first day around his presents, she might even believe that his words had been kind. But they weren’t.
The necklace was dangling from one of his fingers. He was holding it like something unimportant
—a random item he had just found.

“No it’s not…”, she whispered and tried to back away.

Drawing on A4, processing in Photoshop (:

Well, this is quite similar to the other drawing I've uploaded last week. I hope you don't mind, I like to draw those creatures way too much^^' It's a female [Karytar], an original alien species.

I've used a very smooth paper (Strathmore 400, Bristol Smooth A4), pencils and blenders for the original drawing.
Pencil drawing + processing in Photoshop CS6.

The [Karytar] live in the deep oceans of a planet called Yr'tapia. It was a beautiful place and peaceful life until the first explorers dared to crawl ashore. They were prepared for the air they could not breathe, the arid soil and the lack of cool, calming water. It was unpleasant to overcome the hights of the mountains and frightening to see the vast lands of the plains. But the most terrifying aspect of the whole exploration were the others. From that time on the Karytar knew they are not alone.

Here is a digital version of a Karytar I did about a year ago. The design changed a bit and will certainly change again. The body looks like that of a snake if you can't guess (:
Hey, is anyone experiencing issues with the gallery? Some of my deviations do not show under "All". Even if they are shown in the subfolders.. Also it seams to be a problem with the web version only. Can someone help me out?
Process of 'Lizard-like'
Finally done :happybounce:
This describes the digital processing of Lizard-like in Photoshop CS6.

I'm not sure if you can make any use of it, but at least I had fun with the making. Also how I did the processing of this drawing is just one way of doing it. I bet there are easier ways or maybe more efficient ones^^' Anyway, if it was helpful and/or interesting, let me know (:

Thank you for all of the favs! I'm glad you like my original alien sketches for my story 'Clyssus'. I hope to make more concepts for it in the future- worldbuilding is quite the endeavor! I see your creatures have a story too :D
