Some time ago I drew my first unicorn on large paper in charcoal (seriously, I don't think I had ever drawn one before, not even fanart of that pegasus guy from Sailor Moon) to provide a not-so-kitsch version of the beloved fairy-tale classic. I liked it a lot, eventually sold it (as a wedding gift, no less), and made a second one as a favour to a friend, which sold faster than I could digitize it - forever a black mark on my otherwise spotless book-keeping record.
This now is another unicorn from that corner of the black charcoal world, because both previous horsies had been in landscape format and I liked the strong diagonals in this certical composition so much. I like the look of horses putting back their ears - probably why I never became any good at riding, now that I think about it - and a black horn went excellently with the bi-coloured mane.
I work mostly in the games industry with a spoonful of book covers, and prefer the fantasy/scifi genres - because we know what the so-called real world is like already, so why not expand? Besides painting, I love creating worlds by writing tiny snippets of stories for my personal works.
Love of learning is my strongest drive in life, and in my personal work I try lots and lots of new ways of creating art, changing medium, subject, and goals frequently.
I live in northern Germany with my partner and three cats of which only one isn't black.
