On a personal note

Just married!

I got married last weekend. ♡

Color Me Sanshee

SansheeYes, I know it’s kinda late for Christmas themed art… But the folks over at Sanshee did a fun Dragon Age colouring competition. I entered, even though there’s another entry I’m rooting for to win.

I love the lineart bei xfreischutz, especially Solas’ face. It was a lot of fun to colour this in! :D


This ended up becoming one of the runner-ups! Yay!


By the way, did I mention I added instagram to my ever growing list of social media accounts? I like to take snapshots of my works in progress, and I figured it would be a great place to put them. Also, there’s cat photos.

You can find me on instagram as arisupaints.

2014 Summary of art

The year is coming to a close much faster than expected, which was probably to be expected. So, have this year’s summary of art! You can find the meme template here.

When I filled this in I realized that I drew a lot more X-Men fanart this year than I’d imagined… Anyway. Here’s to a great 2015.

Draw this again meme

I found this really, really old drawing on my computer. I estimate I drew this in 2001. Probably with a mouse because I didn’t have a tablet yet.

I figured this was a good time to do the improvement meme that’s so popular over at deviantart.

Other people improve like this in a year and it took me something like 13, but I guess this shows you just have to keep going? :D


Recently I discovered Emofuri, a Japanese software that helps you animate characters. It is very addictive and, sadly, incredibly buggy.

I tried it out anyway. The results are rather adorable, but since the software is such a pain to use, I don’t think i’ll be making any more for now.

If you’re interested, you can download Emofuri here. (There are lots English tutorials around for those who don’t know Japanese.)

Dorian Hunter

Ich habe mich auf ein kleines Projekt eingelassen. Anbei schonmal die ersten Charakterentwürfe! Nähere Informationen gibt es auf dem Dorian-Hunter-Blog — oder morgen auch hier.

Nachtrag: April, April. Wie sich die meisten schon gedacht haben, war die Ankündigung ein Aprilscherz vom Dorian-Hunter-Blog. ;)

Alpha Girl Zeichenwettbewerb

Im Sommer hatte Inga Steinmetz einen Wettbewerb zu ihrem Manga Alpha Girl ausgeschrieben.

Die Aufgabe war, eines ihrer Bilder zu colorieren. Das hat nicht nur wahnsinnig viel Spaß gemacht, sondern mir auch den ersten Preis beschert, einen Alpha-Girl-Kalender fürs kommende Jahr. Der hängt jetzt neben meinem Schreibtisch, ich freue mich sehr darüber. :D
