Hello (:

My favourite topics are extraterrestrial life forms and creatures of all sorts. I've created my own characters, their species, worlds and stories since I was a child. Now that I want to improve my artistic skills, I started to draw more often, including the ideas of my personal characters.

Furthermore I like to follow the process of other artists. Most of all I love to read the stories behind the pictures, characters and whatever is shared. There are so many worlds to discover...

Thanks for your visit. :happy:

I'd be glad to read your feedback and thoughts!


As this is my very first journal entry I wish to say hello and thank you to everyone I've met so far :wave:  Somehow using this account was NOT a mistake! (I was suspicious first -- showing my drawings to people I don't know.. To be honest, I was afraid that no one would care about them anyway) It was a surprise then. DA turned out to be a welcoming and amiable community. I'm glad that I gave the whole thing a chance Innocent 

Unfortunately I was rather absent during the last weeks and did not submit for a while. It's not because I lost interest or something, but I'm going to have my master's degree in a few weeks and there is still endless work to do.. I try to comment and fav as best as I can, but there won't be drawings for the next weeks.
On the contrary I'm looking forward to be more creative afterwards! Its depressing without art..

Have a nice day :happy:

Pencil drawing + overpainting in Photoshop
Zhaikes by Kathaja
Zhaikes, the Azskor

I think he is a mixture of all the creatures I like^^'
(He is naked cause I can't draw his clothes yet... :ohmygod: not in color)
Sylran by Kathaja
Another drawing of Sylran (previous: here)

Sylran is an approved member of 'Skay Nova, the guild he belongs to since he was an infant. He earned his name with the invention and execution of the so called "student-contracts", a tricky agreement between his guild, a student and a risk taker. In short words his guild will pay the tution fees for the minimum duration of studies. If the student is successful, he will pay off the depts in regular instalments right after graduation. In case the student fails, the risk taker will pay - with money at the best.

I used one of Sirius-sdz 's beautiful textures to get a slight color into the drawing. It's not really visible, but it's somewhere between the digital layers and adds a bit of structure to it - therfore thx to Sirius (:

Let me eat it
The original is a traditional drawing. Colors are Photoshop (:

I wish I had more time to do something bigger/more specific at the moment, but university keeps me busy..
