My name is Buurenaar. I live in a small town near Cologne in Germany.
I started drawing when I was a kid (like most artists, I guess) but it didn't get serious until I got my first manga "Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne" by Arina Tanemura. From then on, my style was being influenced mostly by that mangaka, later on also by You Higuri who's known for creating "Seimaden", "Gorgeous Carat - Virtue of Darkness" and "Cantarella".
Most of my work back then consisted of fanart. I wasn't into creating original characters so much until 2005 when I started doing pen and paper roleplay. That's my biggest source of inspiration to this day.
Work and materials
There's actually not much to say about it.
My first roleplay OC Seth ben Dschadir clearly dominated my creative process for the past years and will probably do so 'til I die.
Aside from my own characters I really enjoy drawing other people's OCs as well as fanart.
I work traditionally (with very few exceptions), using my mechanical pencil, ballpoint, liquid ink fineliner pen and coloured pencils on printing paper. I'm not at all adventurous with my working materials.
Alcohol based markers are new in my collection but I'm usually sticking to pencils.
If you have any questions concerning my art or myself, feel free to leave a comment.
Until then, I hope you enjoy browsing through my gallery!
Aside from drawing, I'm also into Cosplay since 2005 and visit 3 to 4 conventions a year with my friends. I mainly impersonate male characters from various manga/animes and videogames.
