Old Art Style
I have been painting in this “old drawing style” with visible outlines all my life and I loved it and I still do. Despite this long period, it was not a standstill, on the contrary. It was a long road of learning, and I developed my drawing skills over all these years. You can see it, especially in my eye style, the way of colouration and of course in the overall improvement. But it is not only about the way one draws, it also matters what to bring to the paper or screen. I am doing all kinds of art: art for relevant people in my life, art to express myself, occasionally work-related art and lots of fanarts. The latter is the visible side of me being a fangirl doing lots of nerdy fan stuff like reading fanfictions and going to conventions. I love doing so and this art creation will always be part of me. Also, for a long time, drawing fanarts was often the only way for me to produce any art at all when I was in a constant state of struggle and real life was dragging me down. I’ll be forever grateful for this fragile but constant bridge that helps me through challenging times and keeps me artistically active. And I’m glad I finally am a bit more at peace now and feel like improving myself in my newly discovered drawing style while doing all sorts of (fan)arts. It’s time for something new. Let us see where this new road will take me.
Everything Star Trek
I became a huge Star Trek fan in 2020 and am still on my road to watching all ST series. Leonard „Bones“ McCoy is my favourite character and DS9 is my favourite series. In the short time of being a fan, I’ve done a lot of ST fanart. That’s why I’ve decided to put everything related to this universe in a separate gallery. Be warned of the partly slash (=boys love) content and please just leave without comment if it means an unbearable offence to your (ST) worldview.
This is a small selection of art I did between 2014 and 2019. It is therefore not that long after I started doing digital art in 2012. Compared to today, there is of course much room for improvement. But in contrast to today, my soul was more intact and my heart wide open back then. You can see it in all these pictures. So, whereas these drawings may lack some technical skills, they were purer, more me and less fanart, and I was better at expressing myself. Emotions through art. I lost this ability due to some bad stuff I experienced and I am still thriving to get it back.
In 2015 I won an art contest with many of these drawings and as a result, had my own exhibition “iAti” at the Technical University of Berlin for half a year. Loved it.~
