My Bio

Hello, lovely person! Thank you for stopping by my page!
Please, call me Dani for short. I'm a self-taught hobbyist artist, a pharmacist by profession. My current home is Germany, where I live with my fiance, x3mely, but we are both originally from Bulgaria, so you can write to me in Bulgarian, German or English - I always love receiving comments of any kind. :la:

You can also find me here:

Aside from my art I love supporting other artists through features. Here's a list of all features I've posted since the start of 2018.

Just a quick update since I haven't been around for quite a while. For the last few months I've been taking art courses and worked on a bunch of personal and client projects that have taken up practically all of my time. It's been a really exciting and at times trepidating experience, but ultimately very rewarding. One of those experiences was the class on character design I took at CGMA under Mathias Osland, which culminated in my most recent post - Eldiene, the spiritual healer character design. I really hope you like her, she's taken me a whole lot of time and effort, and sweat and tears, and I'm really proud of her. You can see all the progress stages, including thumbnails, sketches, color variations, props, etc, on my Artstation: https://www.artstation.com/danielaivanova Your support would really mean a lot to me. As far as dA is concerned, I'm having a lot of trouble with the new message system so if you want to get in touch with me for commissions or just to chat, I'm most

Let me start out by thanking Kelly (@lovelessdevotions) for featuring my Goddess of Rain on the Daily Deviation page. It really made my day especially since I'd been dealing with a lot of insecurity lately. You might have noticed I've been pretty much absent from dA and social media in general apart from the occasional artwork. I do miss the community but this is probably going to stay like this for a while still. I have been dealing with a lot of bureaucracy related to our move at the end of last year, not to mention a very stressful work environment, which doesn't show promises of improving, and with refocusing my time and efforts on improving my painting skills. I hope at least the latter has been noticeable in my work, though I feel like I've finally hit the ceiling of self-taught and need to find a suitable alternative. Have you got any recommendations for online art schools that are illustration focused and flexible? I have also been working on a secret-not-so-secret-anymore

It seems like DeviantArt doesn't want to let me go without a fight, huh? :D A lot of you must be familiar with the frustrations and inefficiencies of Eclipse, so let's not focus on that (no matter how tempting). The fact is, I haven't been around, not on any level similar to before. That has little to do with my passion for art, or with Eclipse, as much as we love to hate it. In fact, 2020 has been so far the most productive time of my life with over one painting a month, plus countless sketches that I've been too shy to share. But here's one for you, that I only posted on Insta: I've also taken my first commission by the amazing Martin Nenov, who has been a joy to work with. And I have enough ideas and works in progress to last me for the next two years! The thing is, I've been sick. Not sick and tired, though maybe a bit tired, too, but mainly sick. I've been diagnosed with a sort of chronic condition that really screwed with my illusion of invincibility. Not life-threatening

I took a journey through your AWESOME gallery and really enjoyed what I saw... When ever any new member comment; or add my work to their favorites; if I'm not already watching them; I take the time to visit their gallery; commenting on their work that inspires me in return... Even though I get more :+fav:'s with no comments on my work; I still try and leave honest and positive feedback..I enjoy viewing the passion that is poured into their art. ...Thats just how I am...
