My Bio

Hi everyone I am no longer actively posting here. Please check my website and other social media:



─ instagram/Twitter: @nyx_aurelia


Hello, I'm a freelance 2D fantasy illustrator. My original/personal works focus on my project ITERATION, my medieval-fantasy style universe. I also do freelance work with projects such as TTRPG/TCG games, fantasy books, and similar media.

Info about my work, commissions, prints, and more are at my website:

NO AI GENERATION: My works are hand-drawn, and you can see my painting process on YouTube. High-res versions/PSD/full process are available by joining my Patreon :) or checking my Gumroad store.

I'm not awfully active here especially since the AI flooding started. If you'd like to talk w/ me or ask a question, I have a Discord server where I and other artists share our works and hang out :D. https://discord.gg/hsmKDhfmuu.

or you can find me by the same name on sites like Instagram and Twitter!

*If you would like to repost my work or use for your own project, please email me directly for crediting/licensing. More information about it is at my website. Thank you!

Hey guys, been a while. I've actually been on a break from art and posting online since January due to a personal crisis. I posted this on YT, Reddit, and my website but my stress spiked high enough that I didn't really want to post anywhere else. welp. better late than never? My plan is to come back by June, or August at the latest. Hopefully everything will be alright then. I'm still open to talk via email or discord, just not checking socials. See you guys in a bit!

DeviantArt isn't supposed to be a repository for AI and stock images. It's supposed to be a community of artists who worked hard to develop their skills and express themselves, and for others to come and appreciate those skills. As a digital illustrator myself, I'm not interested in seeing nor trying to participate in a scene where people spam AI art like there's no tomorrow. If DA's going to do anything about it, they're hella slow on it. As a disclaimer because the Internet can be seriously toxic, I hand-paint all of my own digital artwork. Here is my YouTube channel showing the speedpaint process of my paintings as proof. I'll probably still put my work here for portfolio purposes obviously, but I have and will continue to focus my efforts elsewhere. For all the real artists struggling out there, know that social media isn't your end-all-be-all. It's more relevant if you're trying to turn it into a career, but even then, you're likely going to benefit further from looking for
