Silvana Dettmann
Artist | Student | Traditional Art
Switzerland
I'm an ongoing scientific illustrator studying Scientific Visualization at the ZHdK in Zurich and I'm currently in my second year of studies after I studied Biology for five semesters at the UZH in Zurich. Though I study and live most of the week in a flat in Zurich with my roomies, I spend most of my weekends and holidays at home in Zernez in the middle of the Engadin valley.

My interests are biology, especially zoology, paleontology and evolution, since I always loved to know about nature and it's inhabitants. I'm also interested in medicine, history (Vikings, Germans, Romans, Rhaetians and other ancient cultures), enviromental science and geoscience ranging from Earth to extraplanetar systems. I also keep pets (birds, fish, amphibians), go hunt, hike and dive. It's safe to say that I got a very vast field of interests.
One of my other great passions besides of science are sci-fi and gaming, meaning that I'm a sucker for the Aliens (AvP) and the Halo franchise. Though I tend to draw a lot of fanart in my spare time, I'm not one of those weird fangirls. I'm quite a reasonable fan.
If you look at my gallery, you'll mostly find either scientific stuff like paleontology or zoology I do at the university or sci-fi and fanart I do in my spare time :)

My mother tongue is Rumansh but I speak German fluently as well and I'm quite good with English. I also understand a good part from French and Italian and to a certain degree Spanish. As you see, communication shouldn't be a problem if you do want to speak about my art. Comments of any kind are welcomed! :D

Fair use: You are free to spread my art and show it wherever you want, as long as you're not selling or making profit with it. However I'd then like you to credit me for it by linking to my profile or at least mention my name. Ask me first, if you want to use parts of my art for your own non-profit artistic projects (collage). Do not trace my art, use my art as a base, remove my signature from my art or pretend it to be your own art.
Interests
I'm trying to get all my stuff a little bit more professional and since I had many issues with art theft and what not, I decided to add an improved and bigger signature to all my art with my full name and year of submission on it. Not a huge watermark covering the entire thing though. At least not for now... I'm creating some business cards as well to hand out on people and businesses interested in my art, so that new improved signature comes in handy in my hunt for a long time job in the scientific field.

Also I got a Twitter profile now, since :iconvienquitonm: wanted me to join it, so if you're interested, you can follow me there as well.


It's currently still empty though but will eventually be filled with art during the next days. The art will be about the same as here though, except for maybe a handfull of naughty parodies I can't submit to DA for obvious reasons. You're free to share it though if you want. I'd definitely not say no to that =)

Here on DA I'm adding my new signature on all my art, so sorry if I'm flooding your inboxes. Youtubers and Facebook users sharing my art without credit kinda left a bad taste in my mouth, so I want my name to be a bit more visible. I hope you understand. Also I'm now allowing you to buy prints of my art via DA if you're interested. Fanart and art I did using references such as photographies are excluded though due to copyright issues. If you really want prints of my art where I used references from, let me know and I'll try to contact the owner to see if he'd be ok with giving me the permission to offer my version as a print. As for fanart though, I doubt Microsoft or Fox would even react to me making such a question. I'm sorry.

So sorry for the chaos in your inboxes during me building stuff here. Have a good day! =)

Could you link me to your commission info or give me an idea on how much your artworks cost? because I'm trying to decide on a price for my artwork & because your artwork & mine are as good as eachothers I need a better idea of how to decide on my prices.

Sorry, I don't have any fix prices or commission info. I usually decide on a case by case on how much something may cost, depending on style and amount of detail :/

Thanks for your :+fav: on 'Daft morning', Silvana

the night sneaks away the air faded
the shadows flee in silence
and on the far horizon
the sun begins to rise
and there pulls out the mist
the bright part of the dawn
with his salvation
the daft mornin'
