My Bio

Malte279 Says3plz Hello and welcome to my Deviantart page

My name is Malte. I live in Germany and while I got a deviantart account back in 2007 it has been only after I became active in the brony fandom (fans of the show "My little pony") that I became more active and started posting new art more regularly. So almost all of the art on my account is my little pony fanart.


It has become kind of "my thing" to try out many different crafts and forms of art. I very much enjoy exploring the possibilities so I am rather versatile concerning the forms of fanart I am creating. Among other these include origami, pyrography (images burned into wood or leather), engravings on glass or stone slates, sculptures made of different materials (soapstone, wire, pipe cleaners, felted wool, clay, starch foam etc.), glass- and porcellain painting and mosaics. I love creating some background sceneries for the different sculptures so I can set them up for images or animations which sometimes can tell a little story.

Streetart with chalk is another thing I enjoy in the summer months and I am particularly happy about the successful introduction of chalkdrawing as a workshop at the GalaCon and the Czequestria (two European brony conventions I love to attend).

I also draw and paint both digitally and traditionally, but in all honesty I got to admit that I do so rather rarely, mostly because I regret the lacking possibilities for corrections in traditional paintings while dreading the unreasonable amount of time it takes me to complete a digital painting. I really admire the great artists who have learned to create beautiful digital art in much shorter time.

It is one of the things I really hope to learn to maybe realize a couple of comic ideas I have in mind.


I am creating art mostly for the joy of creating it rather than as a profession. However, while I am therefore not very active in searching for comissions I do sometimes accept them.


Apart from art I'm extremely interested in history and turned this interest into an actual profession by teaching history (and English) at "Volkshochschulen" (education centers for adults).

Please feel heartily invited to look around and comment on my art (constructive criticism is always very welcome and helps me to improve future projects).

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Forms of Fanart panel at the TrotCon this weekend

0 min read
From Friday (December 4th 2020) to Sunday (December 6th 2020) there will be the Next Saturday (September 19th 2020) there will be the TrotCon Online https://trotcononline.net On Sunday from 6:45am to 8:45am Eastern Time I'm going to contribute (via zoom) with a little panel titled "Forms of Fanart". As you know it is kind of my thing to try out many different types of crafts and I just love learning about many different ways to turn all kinds of materials (e.g. paper, stone, wood, metal etc.) into something ponyish. There are many ways to keep oneself busy and creating something nice to brighten up ones spirit, especially in times when contacts with friends that would do much of the brightening up in regular times need to be limited. I'm going to present many (can't promise all of them depending on the time frame) of these forms of fanart along with helpful tipps for anybrony who would like to try give one or some of them a try. If you have any questions (both before and during the

I'll give a panel at the Ponyfest Online 4.0

0 min read
Next Saturday (September 19th 2020) there will be the fourth Ponyfest Online: https://discord.gg/xJtUGF At 10:30 Eastern Daylight Time I'll give a panel on "Unicorns and other fable Equines". It will be a scientific but entertaining presentation about the development of unicorns and other equine creatures from human mythology through the centuries. We all know and love the ponies of the series, but few of us have examined the role of equine characters in myths and legends predating My Little Pony. I had asked if it was possible for my panel to be set at a time late enough to make it accessible to American bronies as well as bronies from Europe. The staff of the Ponyfest was kind enough to grant that wish :-) If you are interested I would be very happey to see you there.

Hi! Hallo! Do you take request?

Hello Anonnim :)

I don't take requests mostly because it takes me a rather long time to finish a digital picture and I got a very long list of images, crafts and comic ideas I still hope to draw.

It is not quite that I have never ever taken requests, but I'm very cautious about agreeing to requests without knowing what the request will be.

Please making Princess Celestia and Tempest Shadow kissing picture.

No, like I said it takes me a very long time to draw digital images, but very likely other artists have drawn pictures of Celestia and Tempest kissing.

Happy Birthday! :)

Thank you kindly, EbbySharpTwilight Sparkle (wow) plz
