Hello fellows!


I´m recently quiet because i have had to finish many deadline works for Earthdawn and Myranor (both Pen&Paper RPGs).

Finally i´m done and i start tow work on other things :)
At the moment on my desk:
- a little map illustration for "The dark eye" (P&P RPG)
- several comic-ish cardillustrations for a cardgame for kids (this is gonna be fun! Very different from my usually style)
- and of course my next character art from my commission list

Much to do, much to do!
I´m happy about that but i discovered something during the deadline works that i wanted to fix: i´m nearly clueless about digital painting.
Of course - my works got much better but i have no good workflow and everything takes too long.
Unfortunately, I have no time to take courses at the adult education school, because of my job (wich still pays my bills because art is more or less a semi-professional hobby for me).

I decided to take private lessons. I´m very lucky to have an very nice artist buddy around. She is very skilled and very experienced in digital art and she lives from being a freelancer. I want to reach that point once a day too, so I asked her to teach me (of course for good money! I know what time is worth in the freelancer buisness)
And she does! :)

So, i maybe will submit here some practice works soon!
Take a look at her profile! She is awesome and deserves MUCH more attention!

:iconstephanieboehm:

Next thing to come is a tutorial.
Yes. Sounds odd because i talked about taking painting lessons, but i made a tutorial for the first time! :)
It´s meant to be a gimmick for the kickstarter campaign of "Packs!"
It´s about how to draw a rat character for the game, and will be in english! :D
I hope the corrector of Prometheus Games won´t have a heart attac during reading my tutorial XD I will sbmit this here as soon it is published!

You have read this whole journal?
here is a hug for you! :hug:

Thanks so much for watching, reading and supporting me!

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":
Riesling Fairy by Phantagrafie


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

Teaser: wondering girl
Just to show that i´m alive and why i´m so quiet lately!
This is a tiny detail of one of the pictures that i´m drawing for the new german edition of the RPG "Earthdawn"!
I´m very happy to be a part of this book and i love the motives that i´m drawing. It´s a bunch of work, but it´s also a pure joy! :)

Association time: what do you think is the thing that she´s smiling at? :)

Kickstarter campaign is running!!!!

Mon Feb 9, 2015, 10:13 AM

Hello dear watchers and friends!


The countdown is on!
Prometheus Games releases the great german P&P RPG "Ratten" ("Packs") in english!
Do you want to see the world through a rat´s eyes? Do you want to explore a abandoned mall and discover the wonders of "the builders" who suddenly left the world? This is your chance!

Why do i post this?

Well, i drew the alternative cover for the exclusive "Art Edition"!


The "art edition" will include besides the new cover, some fine paper art prints, and if the pledge does not reach unbelievable highs (1000 and up), i will sign every print of the alternative Cover for you.

So join the backers crowd, this RPG is totally worth it!

Kickstarter campaign for PACKS!

PS.: You can take a look at the alternative cover at the kickstarter website! ;)


Upcoming event and some news!

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 28, 2015, 1:46 PM

Hey dear watchers and friends!


I´m sorry for being calm the last days but i´m fighting with a deadline monster XD

Away from this there will be a cool event with me and my best friend at the fantasy-pub "Voyager" at Bonn (near cologne, germany).
Take a look at this and feel invited!

Art meets book Event by Phantagrafie

When the deadline monster is finally beaten, i will overhaul my commission terms and will add some new features like the "house convention" and possibility to order digital portraits, like the two that i did for my last kiribans.

Kiriban: Theo by Phantagrafie

You see, there is much stuff to come, stay tuned and wish me luck in my epic battle! :hug:
