Feen Convention

Sun Jul 5, 2015, 6:56 AM


Hey folks,

this weekend was FeenConvention at Bonn and it was absolutely freaking hot. 40°degrees outside and really a hard time to work.
But i survived and wrote my (german) Convention-report.

There is not much left to say, but thank you for a great time in spite of the temperatures! :)

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.

Examples:
I drew for „Ulisses“ who publishes „The Dark Eye“, the biggest German Pen & Paper RPG.
DSA: Arms and armour by Phantagrafie
Also for "Splittermond" (Uhrwerk Verlag)
Moon Symbols by Phantagrafie
"Spherechild“ (another RPG)
Spherechild: Spaceship 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":

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

FeenConvention: Half-orc by Phantagrafie
FeenConvention: Half-orc
A lineart, drawn at my latest convention.
This guy is a half-oricish priest of storm and thunder. He loves the sea and travelling with ships and holds his magical sword wich can cast lightnings and has the ability to show cardinal points.

FeenConvention: Godess Hesinde icon
I had a lot of fun with this one.
This picture was made for an player of "The dark eye" and should show a little icon, wich his character (a mage) carrys around. Hesinde is the godess of wisdom, knowledge and magic, and she is shown with her son Nandus, the Half-god who stands vor national education and understanding.
Her holy animal is the snake, her symbols are books, quills, the lotus flower, and the little unicorn is anoither symbol for her son. :)

First: the convention was freakin hot. There was no air conditioning and outside 40° degrees (104°F). It was very difficult to work and i was really really happy that i had my smudge guard, to prevent my hand from sticking on the drawings.

I´ve got a very beautiful sketchbook with wooden cover and the owner asked me to draw my "Riesling fairy" for him. She is (of course) not exactly like the original piece, because i had copics at the Con and no possibility to use PS, but i´m happy with the result. :)
The original fairy can be seen here:

Waiting list issues

Tue Jun 23, 2015, 11:58 AM


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)!

Feel hugged! :hug:
