Die Toteninsel - The Isle of the Dead
Guess what's one of my all time favourite paintings? Jupp, that's right, the "Toteninsel" bei Arnold Böcklin. I just love the calm atmosphere, that can be both sinister, or peaceful, depending on how you look at it.
Since I'm still on the path of training my digital painting skills, I decided to do a copy of it.
I have to say, I'm quite pleased with this!
Detail: Kirchner - Fuenf Frauen auf der Strasse
This is a reaaally old picture back from art class at school! I found it recently, when I was visiting my parents and thought to myself: "Hey, that's actually quite nice!" So here it is. It shows a detail of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner's "Fünf Frauen auf der Straße" an expressionist work from 1913. It's made with oil pastels (my version, that is. The original is an oil painting ;) ).
Vincent-Immanuel Herr
Practicing my digital painting skills. I feel like I slowly get the hang of it.
This was done after a photograph of Andrea Grambow & Joscha Kirchknopf for the German magazine NEON. I love the lighting of the photo and tried  to catch it in the painting.
Mini Selfportrait
My Photoshop crashed while painting this... All I could do was snapping a screenshot from my frozen screen. I didn't want to start over, though, - thus the tiny dimensions. I'm trying to get better at drawing with photoshop and this was an attempt at a self portrait. Actually I did quite like it. PHOTOSHOP WHY??!!?
Rimat Ulai
Rimat Ulai is a Kerrishiter from the western continent of Myranor. He is a high army officer and priest.

Made for the DSA (The Dark Eye) fanzine Memoria Myrana, Issue 49.

If you speak German, you can learn more about Rimat Ulai here:

Hello and welcome on my site!

I really love art in all ways. That's the reason I'm doing some small little artworks and that's the reason I'm a Conservator for paintings.
Besides art I love Pen & Paper roleplaying especially DSA (Myranor), Shadowrun, Call of Chtullhu, and much more. Sometimes I also work for a fanzine named "Memoria Myrana", a fanzine for the Dark Eye (DSA) specialised on the continent Myranor:

Current Residence: Somewhere in Germany
Favourite genre of music: Dependent on the mood
Favourite style of art: Art Noveau
The last journal is like... 5 years old, but since I'm not a big journal writer, and therefore am pretty sure that this one will be outdated very quickly, too, I'm doing something more universal this time. 
I just have to think of something. 
Oh, I know, maybe a little history of my drawing "career". So, here we go: 
I started drawing as a kid and was quite convinced to become a famous painter later in life. That's why I kept all of my drawings and collected them, because I thought it would be interesting for art historians to look at my children's paintings once I'm famous. In my imagination I already saw the banner at the National Gallery: "Kirsten Schwabe - The early works". A lack of self-confidence was sure no problem for me as a kid... 
During school I kept drawing, painting and scribbling, like, all the time. The teachers never got, that I *actually* (and that was no lie!) could listen better while scribbling. Because of them not believing me, I got trouble more than once. Art classes were, who would have thought, always my favourite. In high school I decided to pick art as intensive course and it was a great. I always loved to *do* art, but the older I got, the lesser got my inspiration for *what* I should do. That's the reason I loved art classes, because there you always got a clear theme, like "Do a painting about the topic of "Work"", or "Romantic landscape" or whatever. Besides school I did some art classes in my free time, too, such as summer courses or an nude drawing course with my best friend. (Um, we both *attended* the same course together. We didn't draw nudes of each other. In case that was unclear...). 
When school came to an end I knew I wanted to do something with art, but, alas!, my self-confidence from the childhood and my inspiration had left me, so I decided against a career as an professional artist and went out to become a conservator and restorer for paintings. 
As college went on I drew and painted less, besides works *for* college (like this: Klimt Copy). Friends, studies, parties and a long distance relationship with my (then) boyfriend took it's toll. Nevertheless, I never abandoned drawing altogether and soon one of my other hobbies, pen & paper RPGs, brought me back to work, when I started to draw for a fan magazine for one of the systems (Memoria Myrana). One of my drawings did even get published i a real book! (I just noticed, that I never uploaded that pic, but I will!)
Nowadays I do mostly character portraits of my, and others, RPG characters and paint something for someone's birthday or Christmas. But from time to time the urge still gets me and I paint something, just because. =)
