Bad Intentions, Circle1 BerlinI am happy to announce that I will be part of "Bad Intentions" exhibition at Circle 1 - Platform for Art & Culture in Berlin. The exhibition opens on November 17, 2017. I will exhibit some of my occult inspired art.
Art is not mimetic. Art is not ‘about’ stuff. Art has no role. Art does not ‘ask questions’. People might do those things, sometimes even people who are artists. But not their art, even if they think it does, even if that was their intention.
Were one to be dramatic, they would decree art the pre-Tower-of-Babel mother tongue (thus terming it ‘autonomous’ misses its essence as all-encompassing source), and politics not even one letter within it. They would point out an iceberg that, in contemporary discourse, had thus been forced to balance on its tip. A dangerous balance indeed. But for now, let’s pretend that all we’re saying is that art and politics are simply two different languages, a distinction too of

Sensifer - Those Empty NightsI have music for you...
Sensifer are a prog-rock band from Dresden (my home town), which happen to be friends of mine. Now I have a lot of friends that do music. But this one is a bit different from my usual metal alliances. Some facts:
▪ the band is called SENSIFER
▪ the album is called "Those empty Nights"
▪ the music is post rock in the widest sense of the word, very atmospheric, partly dreamy, partly heavy and epic
▪ they have been doing music together for six years and already released three full length albums
▪ they won and participated in several contests in and around Dresden
▪ people exposed to their music are usually impressed at once
▪ the problem is that only a couple of hundred people are yet aware and actively supporting them
Hence I offered to include their latest CD with my next shipments. There are 30 CDs and when they are gone they are gone. So 30 orders, 30 CDs. Th
Pillars PerichoresisSeveral of my artworks and one essay are featured in the now sold-out “Pillars – Perichoresis” anthology by Anathema Publishing, 2016. The book is a compilation of the first three “Pillars” journals and contains additional material that was not part of previous releases. I have contributed to all three journals and look forward to continue working with Anathema Publishing in the future.

Pillars 1.III - The Ebon Kteis
Pillars Journal 1.III - 'The Ebon Kteis' is out now via Anathema Publishing and as of now there are less than 60 copies left.
The journal contains my very first published essay, Regina Amandrakina – Exploration of the Image and Strange Idol, in which I delve into the concepts and personal motivations behind one of my artworks. The topic is also inspired by the many question I keep receiving about the Mandrake. So now all those, who asked me questions, receive 11 pages food for thought - and of course everybody else is welcome to read this as well, because it’s a heart piece and will help you understand how and why I do what I do!
Concerning the journal: as with the previous Pillars issues, this one has become again a masterpiece of editing and type setting. It’s obvious there was
Two groups need Voters or Contributors:iconMusicPhotography: is in urgent need for voters as wells as contributors! The group is dedicated to music photography in general, but also accepts traditional works. We also try to help new and upcoming artists get the word out. If you want to join as part of the voting team or contributor please message the group! Or you can also note me here.

SummerFirst off THANKS SO MUCH for the birthday wishes! I celebrated with my childhood friend, watching "Zeit der Kannibalen" at the movies and at midnight having a glass of champagne - thanks to the waitor, who spontaneously donated it! The day was spent with my mum and dad and I actually used it for crafting the slip-cases you see above...
Now I've been fairly busy, creative but not very crafty during the first part of this year apart from some commission work. However this ought to change during the coming months. And to celebrate the summer's solstice I am starting with the first card set of my plant sigils. I actually brought these with me for the London Magical Arte event earlier this year. Back then I had printed the cards but not yet made a nice packaging for them. So... on my birthday I made slipcases with paper bought from my local
Commissions + UpdateEDIT: We were able to finally get my dad's death certificate. Thank you all so much for your kind words, encouragement and support and to everyone who have offered to help, I really appreciate it a lot. 💕
I'm still accepting commissions, you can check the details below. Thank you!!! 💛
Thank you everyone so much for your thoughts, prayers and donations. Unfortunately dad did not wake up, he passed away last night. 😢
We still owe a big amount of money from the hospital (around 11 grand) and they might not be able to release him or we won't be able to get his death certificate until we pay the bill. We're hoping that they would at least accept our promissory note but yea, I need to do something. I'm very thankful for all the donations that you guys have offered but I realized I can't really rely on it alone so I have decided to just open a new batch of commissions cause I really don't have any other choice. I'm gonna be accepting slots until I reached my goal s

Using Cross-Figure With Genesis 8Cross-Figure Genesis 3 is a program that allows you to use Genesis 3 Female hair and clothing on Genesis 3 Male and vice versa without using AutoFit. There are some extra steps using it with Genesis 8, but you don't have to be able to use a modeling program (unless you want to make a better ID morph after you're done, but we'll get to that).
Here's a YouTube version. You'll have to turn your sound up. Sorry.
Genesis 8 Male and Female
Instructions G8F to G8M:
Load Genesis 8 Female into the scene.
Load a piece of clothing or hair onto Genesis 8 Female that you wish to convert.
Go to the Parameters tab. If you do not have one, you can create one by right-clicking near your existing tabs and finding it in the list.

F.A.Q. TIME!!I get quite a few messages here on DA with various questions and requests. I don't have time due to work and family to answer all of them individually like I would like so I think a handy-dandy FAQ is in order. This way maybe I can answer a question before it's even asked and/or have a journal I can easily direct people to. So here we go!
Q: Can you give me any tips on how to draw/color,paint/whatever better?
A: The quick and easy answer is that there aren't any secrets to being able to draw well. I know it's not what people want to hear and everyone is looking for a magic trick that will instantly make them a better artist. The truth is that I have dedicated 1000s of hours to art in an effort to get better. I attended figure drawing classes, went to conventions and spent hours talking to other artists, and spent nearly every dime I had on books and art supplies. I lived it and breathed it. When you were out on a date or playing video games or seeing movies I was probably home d
Happy New Year!Hope you're all doing well!
Sorry I haven't been around here at all! Been busy these past few months and I've found that dA stresses me out LOL. I feel like it brings out the worst in me and I definitely feel more relaxed since my time away from it. BUT I'd still like to come back and draw stuff here again eventually. I miss drawing pony stuff and the next gen characters and all that. So maybe soon! I know I'm definitely rusty but it'll be cool to see how much my style's changed I guess.
Just thought I'd throw in a little update. You all know how 2017 went for me based on my journals but I'd like to hear about yours! Go ahead an comment some of the cool stuff you got to do this past year or maybe even the not so cool stuff. Anything! Go for it! I'm curious~
Happy 2018 ✨
