This year I tried to approach art differently and rediscovered the fun in it. I'm working on personal projects again and can't wait to share it with you guys. But there's one thing I CAN share with you right now: my new website!
I coded it from scratch and learnd tons while doing so. With the launch of my website I also introduce my new identity design which I'm talking about on my first blog post: Branding in art
Right now I'm working on another blogpost which will be an animated video about overcoming artblocks starring these two:
Let me know what you think of my new website!
With deviantArts long overdue new apperance update it follows the movement of clean design while still holding on to a few characteristic elements (like the pixelated Llamas) that make deviantArt the place we all know for so long.

There is some stuff I've never uploaded here so it may be worth a visit.
I designed and coded this wordpress theme from scratch (besides some plugins) so I'd greatly appreciate any feedback about design or bugs.
Also some other new years resolutions:
Sketch more. Past months I was super busy with work and other unfortunate things. Be more active on
Some weeks ago I was asked if I'd be up for an interview with deviantArt. What a great honor this was! Of course I've said yes and this week it was posted on dAs facebook page accompanied by some of my artworks. You can see the original post here: Interview on facebook
And here's the full length interview: "I noticed that I loved to create art about 11 years ago when a friend and I developed our own little card game. This, as well as my sister, who is also a phenomenal artist, kickstarted my art career.
My inspirations came and went. While I was really into anime and manga in the beginning, I noticed at some point that I was paying more att
Hello guys! Long time no see, eh?
I'm currently busy with freelance work so not much time for personal art which also means not much to post here.
Anyways, some of you probably remember this old Dark Souls fanart of mine:
It can now be purchased as a print in a unique framing style here: https://thrillingcanvas.com/product/artorias-sif/
I also updated my website: http://fabianrensch.com/
I'm also working on a digital painting blog with lots of helpful articles. Stay tuned for that!
