Iron Dragon Sketch
It's been a while since I've last drawn a dragon. I'm working on a big illustration right now and since it's going to take a while till it's finished, I thought maaaaybe I should share at least the sketch with you. The lines won't be visible on the final piece.

Good news! I have my own shop now! You can buy my designs on various items, now:…
I am glad for any support :heart:

Woohoo I'm back again! Sorry for the lack of content. I am halfway through my paperstuff and finally had time to draw again. Model for this white fluffy kitten was my moms cat. I had the idea of creating a series of "cat's & flower's" paintings that would look beautiful on t-shirt's and mug's.

I'm opening a shop soon where you can actually buy these things. Just need to modify my website a bit first. ;)
The next one is going to be a bengal cat with red-brownish flowers.
If there is a cat breed you'd like to see as a painting like this one please tell me in the comments!

Spontanous idea for a mythological creatures design inspired by Final Fantasy's Carbuncle.
The Carbuncle is a very mysterious creature. It appears in form of a small herbivore and can transform iron into gold and is hunted for the jewel on it's forehead. It may not look like much, but it can create dangerous illusions to scare away it's enemys.

Only a small drawing but I hope you enjoy it anyway. Lot 
bureaucratic stuff to do at the moment and less time to draw but that's also part of the job. I'm currently working on a redesign for my phearox creatures:…
There will be a big reference sheet about their new design and way of life.
Hello dear fellow deviants!

Some still remember me, to some I'm unknown. I've been on deviantart for many years now but have been inactive since my last post in 2015.
I had to take a step back from deviantart because my life was a complete mess. I had to work very hard for my future without any help from outside. There were times I wanted to give up but today I'm glad I made it through and it made me stronger than ever. 

However I wasn't totally inactive in the art section. I made a further education and recently became an illustrator, which had been my dream for a long time. Back in the old days I hadn't had enough self confidence to do this. I always thought I wasn't good enough, not only at art.
Today I can look into the future much more positiv. Some of you may now I had been sick with depression. It still gets me sometimes. Some days are good and some days are like hell. Other people with long term depression can probably relate to this. I can't get rid of the black dog, it will always stay a part of me but I've learned to accept it and to live with it.

When I came back to dA a few days ago I was worried if I would have been completely forgotten but luckily that wasn't the case! I was so happy when I was contacted by a few people and they were happy I was back. I even gained a whole bunch of new followers and now I'm very close to having 3000 watchers!

...And so we are coming to our little question round that's directed especially to the newer followers. Is there anything you want to now about me or my art then you can question me now as much as you like.

Also happy international cat day! I made a little something to celebrate this:

I really like the 'derpy' looking one in the middle above. :P
