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.

I give an origami panel at the next pony fest

I give an origami panel at the next pony fest

Hello, I hope you are all well and spared as much as possible by Corona and its effects these days. Due to the current situation many brony meetups are held online these days. While this of course is not the same thing as meeting friends and fellow bronies in real life it comes with the great advantage that long distances are not much of a problem. One of these meetups is the pony fest online which is conducted on Discord and which will be held next time on Saturday May 30th. I applied to offer a panel on my little pony origami there (similar to the ones I have given at the GalaCons in 2017 and 2018) and my application was successful :) Unfortunately my panel is scheduled very early (7:30 am Eastern Daylight Time), but in case any one of you (refering to fellow bronies on the western shore of the big pond) are early birds I would be very happy to meet you there.

Concerning Eclipse - a petition

Concerning Eclipse - a petition

As many of you will have seen by now it has been decided by the admins of deviantart that from May 20th on the eclipse version of our beloved side will no longer be an option but an obligation to all users of Deviantart. I see this decision with great concern and admittedly with some anger and frustration. I am not principally against any changes. On the contrary, there are things that could and should be improved (for example it is unnecessarily complicated to submit older art to groups and to see which art you have submitted to a group already). However, I have tried eclipse and deliberately decided against using it. The layout made mostly

Digital Art and the pains of autodidactics

Digital Art and the pains of autodidactics

This journal is a bit of a rant on my recent efforts to live up to some resolutions I have had for quite a while already. I appologize for the possibly somewhat whiny tone. I would like to create some more drawn art. In particular I have a huge list of comic ideas I would like to realise. What deters me from realizing these comics is mostly that creating digital art takes and unreasonable amount of time for me. So up to this point this is the only actual comic strip I have ever put up here: My hope is to get faster by using a grafics tablet (which I have had for a while but which I have woefully neglected so far) and employing softwares ot
