I constantly do. That's why I want to present you GoryZombies
. Here are some examples of her beautiful work:
When a beautiful dream turns into a nightmareWe met in a world which is not real
You were impressed with what I love to do
So was I with you
We began to talk, you told me how you really feel
That you were hurt and harrassed all your life
In alcohol and cigarettes you try to drown your pain
Sometimes you even take the little knife
We call razorblade
You paint this ugly world with your tears and blood
I wanted to ease the mess your enemies made
By being your caring friend
By being there for you
Until the end
Sure I didn't know you
Though I had sympathy
With this lost boy, so blue
There was a time when you were absent
You were at the lowest point
All the hope went
Down the hill
I thought all the time of you
Worried, hoped and blamed myself
Drowned me in sweet compliments
Which were so hard to believe
Made me hopes of a bright future
That turned out to be fateful
There were promises
Now I will start with the questions:1. At first, could you please introduce yourself.
Hi, I am Mina, a seventeen-year-old girl from the south of Germany.
At the moment I'm absolving an educationas a veterinary specialist but I still try to persue one of my favourite hobbies: drawing.
Another hobby of mine is archery.
2. What brought you to deviantArt?
I found deviantArt through downloading pictures from the Internet.Back then, I always wondered where all these great pictures come from.
3. How did you pick your username?
Actually, I find my username completely dumb.
Before I created my account together with my father, I unfortunately didn't think about how I wanted to call myself on Deviantart.
So my father got mad and said: "If you don't get an idea in the next view seconds, I'll cancel all this.
And that's why I chose the first thing, that came into my mind as my username.
Thereby this really imaginative mixture of the words "gore" and "zombies" was created.
4. You use in your works preferred motifs from the fields of Gothic and horror.
Which specific theme do you like most?
Most of all I like using motifs like vampires ( That was not to be expected otherwise ^^);
mysterious, nocturnal and dark landscapes;
characters and scenes from my favourite movies/books/series/stories;
characters of other artists from dA;
the pictorial representation of death;
zombies, werewolfs, bats,
5. Your two OCs Ravyn and Aurel are both vampires from past times.
Could you shortly describe them?
Aurel is a 142-year-old romanian vampire.
He is a very charming, yet spiteful and easily irritable villain.
One quickly thinks that he is arrogant.
But that is partly just a mask to cover his inner fights with himself.
In short: He is one hell of a gentleman
He became a creature of the nicht through Ravyn, another vampire.
She is 140 years old and originally from England.
One the one hand she is calm, lovely and cautious.
On the other hand she is through her vampiric nature the opposite of friendly to her victims.
Before she became a vampire, Ravyn was the innocence in person.
A little bit of it has stayed.
After she became a vampire, Ravyn fled to Rumania, where she met Aurel under highly unusual circumstances.
You can read the full story of both of them on my website.
Fun fact: Ravyn is largely based on myself.
Either the look and the personality.
6. How will their relationship with each other develop in the future? (Personally, I'm really looking forward to it)
Oh, dear lord, that is a difficult question.
Honestly I didn't think much about it yet.
I actually wanted to write a story about that at a later time, but I don't have enough free time to do so.
Ravyn and Aurel are a couple for over one century and that probably won't change (except one of them or both are being impaled or cremated :-P xD)
Of course they sometimes will argue, but that's part of it.
Maybe the'll marry in the futere ... Let's see
7. Speaking of vampires, do you have specific films, books, music, or even other artists that inspire you?
to be inspired by films like Dracula, Nosferatu, Robin Hood, Braveheart and of course all works by the genius Tim Burten.
Animes lik Hellsing and Black Butler influence me as well.
When it comes to literature, I get inspired through Stoker's Dracula, Isaac Marions "Warm Bodies" and Edgar Allan Poe.
Some of my favourite bands like Wednesday 13, Powerwolf, Motionless in White, Nosferatu, HIM, Cradle of Filth, Xandria etc. and also composed music play an important role in many pictures of mine.
In fact I almast always listen to music when I draw.
And I occasionally steel characteristics from my friends to use them for my characters.I also get ideas from you every now and then, when I don't know what to draw again ^^
8. In your gallery everyone can find your beautiful pictures. Which materials or techniques do you prefer to use?
Thank you <3 !
My drawing utensils usually contain crayons, a pencil, copic markers, ink, watercolors, coal watercolor paints, but also artificial blood and eyebal...shadows.
I don't use any specific techniques. If you want to know, in which style I like to draw: I partly draw in Anime style and partly in semi realistic style. And of course à la Tim Bourton.
9. Some time ago, you considered selling some of your patches on etsy. Have you already decided?
My mother only allows me to sell it on Etsy when I'm of age, because then I'm really capable of business ...
It's a pity, but she's right somehow.
