My Bio

Mellanie Chafe, better known online as Luniara, is a self made digital artist with a distinct style across many artistic platforms such as deviantART and Patreon. Her perception and execution of line, color and texture make her truly unique among others of this genre.

She has gained notoriety worldwide for her annual piece honoring her sister and other victims of the 9/11 tragedy, as well as her pieces benefitting patients suffering from Cystic Fibrosis. She regularly uses her audience to hold events to benefit charities such as child's play which helps children suffering from life-threatening illnesses gain access to entertainment consoles and the gaming community

She enjoys spending time with her husband and their son Jason, as well as with other artists. She is often streaming her work online for anyone who wishes to watch and is extremely approachable for information and advice on her processes and techniques.

I got my start posting on the internet here, in the early 2000s. It was a modest start, but it was also the early days where all people cared about was pageview numbers and drawing for themselves. Back then, I was constantly drawing for ME and expressing what I was going through in my artwork. Which was when I began my yearly 9/11 drawings. Some of them had even been chosen for daily deviations (does that still exist on here), and soon, many of you came to expect it every year and returned to this account, whether I was active or not, as the years went by. Many of you still do. I may forget to post my work here, or any updates at all...but I think of you who return here to see that one single post a year that marks that anniversary of my emotional journey. So this is a thank you to all of those who come here in search of that art and for thinking of me, my family and most importantly, my sister. It tells me my art is doing its job in helping to keep her spirit alive. Your

Remember way back in the day when we would value DA accounts by "pageviews" and not followers?
