I started drawing at the age of 3. Since that time I have drawn in my spare time and that is the main reason why I turned this into my career. I have been self employed since 2004. Most people think I am a fan artist but I rather think of it as a great inspiration to draw Original Characters. The most inspirational are books, fanfiction and games. I also like to illustrate new projects or characters.
I always draw what inspires me. Inspiration is depth! Drawing is kind of a need. A way to relax. And an expression of the soul.
And a big thanks to the Lord for giving me that great gift!"An artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures." (Henry Ward Beecher)
"Without atmosphere a painting is nothing." (Rembrandt)
March 2019 EDIT:
Do you take requests, art-trades, or commission?
I'm flattered by the interest, but no I do NOT. On this gallery I post personal and professional works. Fanart is mostly personal, the other artworks are rather professional in nature.
I DO take professional level commissions depending on my availability. Please reach me at art[at]kejablank[dot]net and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
(By professional, I mean work for companies and projects moreso than fun paintings for individuals. Sorry for the unavailibity on the latter)Can I use your work/ one of your existing character designs?
Sorry, no. I'm extremely rigid about the use of my personal work outside of creating icons. I appreciate people sharing my work with accreditation, but please do not edit my stuff or use it as a base for your own work etc.
