Hey my dear watchers!

I finally can show you why i was so calm the last weeks!

Workworkworkworkwork.... by Phantagrafie

Besides all my work here, my "normal" job is still very time-consuming. I do a lot of overtime, but the situation relaxes sloooooowly.

Last weekend I was at the "Krähenconvention". I had a lot of fun there and met awesome people!
4 different characters were drewn, but as always I was too scatty to take pictures from every illustration. Meeh.
I will try to get my hands on scans and will submit them during the next days.

I also will try to catch up favorites and other messages, but please be patient with the busy bee. ;)

Feel hugged everyone! :tighthug:


Phantagrafie's Profile Picture
Artist | Varied
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 3 years, i dared to go public with my art and worked at several role play conventions. So far 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 several jobs for at publishing houses. I drew for „Ulisses“ who publishes „The Dark Eye“, the biggest German Pen & Paper RPG. Also for „Spherechild“ (another RPG) and for „Oldib Verlag“ who publishes dissertations and other scientific works referenced to J.R.R. Tolkien.
I'm always looking for new partnerships, so if you are interested feel free to contact me via my illustrators email address:


Wanderer by Phantagrafie
A young mage on his journey to wisdom.

Many other commissions from publishers deferd this piece but i finally had the time to finish this! I struggled with all the tiny details and it took time to plan this. I tried to compose this picture as a journey for the eye of the viewer and i hope that you all can get lost in the vastness. :)

Traditional lineart, greyscale in PS CS2
The summoning by Phantagrafie
The summoning
Badabaaammm! :D My third bookcover!

It was SO MUCH fun to draw this!
I love monsterdesign and this was a very special task for me because i had to do this under more time pressure then usually. I learned a lot during the process.

The cover is for "Prometheus Games" and their first novel that will be published in November!
It´s about a mage named "Feywind" wich is also the name of the book.
Follow the light by Phantagrafie
Follow the light
My first Illustration for "Prometheus Games"!
This is one out of two new archetypal rats for their new edition of the "RATS!" Pen & Paper RPG.
The rat had to fit into the style of the old basic rules and  this one discribes a special kind of pack who lives under an artificial lightsource that the "builders" left in their abadoned world.
A little something by Phantagrafie
A little something
This is a detail of my just now finished project for Prometheus Games!
I´m allowed to share a teaser, you are! :)
The original piece is much bigger and i´m very much looking forward to the printed version!
Kraehencon 2014: Necromancer by Phantagrafie
Kraehencon 2014: Necromancer
Drewn at the Krähencon.
I forgot to take a photo from the result and luckily the commissioner send me a scan. Copics are always hard to scan and the original picture has much more vibrant colors.
