My Bio
Hey folks!

My name is Melanie, and i´m a freelancer!

I`m mainly an autodidact. My graphical education includes a vocational diploma for art and a few courses, like nude drawing.

During the last 4 years, i dared to go public with my art and worked at several role play conventions. I have mostly drawn original characters for other role players, which I still love to do! :)
I ´m a role player myself and i know how much passion, effort and love sticks in RPG characters. That was and is my biggest impetus: to catch their storyies on paper, to show a unique fictional person with all her strengths and weaknesses.

After drawing for private persons, i applied for several jobs at publishing houses and other companies.

I drew for „Ulisses“ - "Earthdawn":
Earthdawn: Magic by Phantagrafie
Also for "Splittermond" (Uhrwerk Verlag)
Splittermond: Moon Symbols by Phantagrafie
"Myranor“ (another RPG)
Myranor: Myranische Meere I by Phantagrafie
"Prometheus Games "Hellfrost":
Hellfrost: Helfried by Phantagrafie
for „Oldib Verlag“ who publishes dissertations and other scientific works referenced to J.R.R. Tolkien.
Bookcover: Yearning for middle earth by Phantagrafie
and for the winery "Steffen-Lex":
Riesling Fairy by Phantagrafie

I'm always looking for new partnerships, so if you are interested feel free to contact me via my illustrators email address:
