My Bio
Hey everyone.
My name is Erik and I am a Photoshop hobbyist from Germany. I have started practicing Digital Art around 2005 and since then I have come to love the genres of Photomanipulation, Space Art and Matte Painting.

In the past I have pursued a digital art career more seriously, joining up several renowned art collectives such as Depthcore, SlashThree and EvokeOne.
Besides, my work has been published in various books and magazines, among them the official Advanced Photoshop Magazine, The Book of Creation and even Ballistic: Exposé.

By now I have another job and practice digital art solely as a hobby. So no use to ask me about commissions.


Thank you for your interest in my page!

Yeah, I, too, have considered deleting my entire gallery from deviantart after being a member for 16+ years on this platform. There's not so much we can do about our art being used as training material but it's moreso the attitude of deviantart towards this problem and the 'jumping on the bandwagon mentality' that leaves a foul taste in my mouth. But I'm not going to add more fuel to the fire for now after the shitstorm that has been going on yesterday. Instead let me make a constructive suggestion. What sets us oldschool artists apart from people creating images using AI generators? The creation process! Give us the option to include multiple images in one post so we can show people how our work was handcrafted. Let us complement our artworks with sketches, concept arts, wips or process videos. Artstation can do it, even Instagram does that better than deviantart. Speaking of. Instagram is where I post more regularly these days. Find me there in case I decide to delete my gallery
