CURRENTLY STOPPED BECAUSE OF WORK FOR PUBLISHING HOUSE

Jan Malte Weber
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“ who publishes „The Dark Eye“, the biggest German Pen & Paper RPG.
Also for "Splittermond" (Uhrwerk Verlag)
"Spherechild“ (another RPG)
for „Oldib Verlag“ who publishes dissertations and other scientific works referenced to J.R.R. Tolkien.
and for the winery "Steffen-Lex":
I'm always looking for new partnerships, so if you are interested feel free to contact me via my illustrators email address:
Hello dear friends and watchers!
I have to make a little announcement for all people who wants to order a commission.
As you might know, i always accept orders for private people and put them on my waiting list. That system was, until now, well-tried and i felt comfortable with it. I ´m happy for every new chance to put your ideas on paper.
Generally, i have to set work for publisher on priority one, because they work with strict deadlines that i have to adhere. That´s why your commissions sometimes delay.
You will get your picture, but you have to be patient if you want a commission done by me.
During the last year i luckily had more and more commissions from publishers. I definetly want to push that forward, to go further on my road as professional artist.
Bad thing is, that your commissions delayed more and more and the waiting time on my list exploded. I´m totally booked out until end of next year.
That´s why i decided to close my Waitinglist for now.
I will not accept new requests until i worked off that mountain of commissions, wich was still growing during the last months.
It wasn´t easy to make that decision,because i don´t want to say „No“ to anybody, but i also don´t want to loose my overview about all the commissions i already have.
I hope you understand my point of view and that i don´t dissapoint someone.
There is still the chance for all german fellows to get a drawing at Conventions. The „FeenCon“ (Bonn) is close and i will be there!
The „Con-drawing“ is not as complex as the drawings you could order on my waitinglist, but you can get your picture on the same day and tale it with you!
Away from this, i´m still working on some projects for publishers. My drawing time is little at the moment because many people are on vacations and i have to work in the store more then usually.
That´s the reason why i won´t thank for all the faves i´ve got during the last weeks. It´s the first time since joining DA that i have to do this.
I just don´t have enough time.
It makes me a little sad, because it was always important to me to show my appreciation for faves. Especially my latest work (the tribute for Christopher Lee) got many many faves and i wish i could answer them all, but it is just beyond my time quota that i have for DeviantArt.
I´m very sorry and be sure I ´m very thankful for you support!
I hope to meet some of you guys at the FeenConn (Bonn, germany)!
