Printed in ImagineFX

I'm giddy since I got my art into the ImagineFX 120 - with as many as five pieces, no less. Yay!

Lensflare tutorial

I finally got around to a new tutorial that's been in planning for while: How to create Lensflares without touching the lensflare filter!
Also, check out my Tiny Tips tutorials: ranarh.deviantart.com/gallery/…




Updates

The reason things have been fairly slow here is the fact that I have been working on many things that I'm only allowed to show after they've been published. I can say that I have created artworks for Fantasy Flight Games for the Star Wars trading card game and roleplaying game, which is totally cool because Star Wars is so cool.

The White Night by Ranarh
The White Night
"Stars above and mushrooms down/ shining with the faintest glow/ mind alike and thoughts abound/ walking soft above the ground."
— White forest childrens' rhyme

In my world Genius Loci, the inhabitants of the white forest seemingly can look into others' minds during the night. The "white night" puzzled scholars for centuries, and so far they failed in finding the reason for this nocturnal telepathy.
Learn more about the white forest here: starmakersgaze.blogspot.de/201…

Check out Genius Loci in my blog Starmaker's Gaze and my website.

A drastic opinion by Ranarh
A drastic opinion
"As we walked between what resembled standing stones we knew from the Here, the protective signs painted on them were blown out as if exploding, one by one, but completely soundless, and the debris then circled the stones like moons."
— Osliarik, traveller

A painting for my world Genius Loci. The Area, a surreal parallel world, seems to have an opinion on protective signs, and travellers often witness them being destroyed.

Check out Genius Loci in my blog Starmaker's Gaze and my website.

Shapeshifting Naj by Ranarh
Shapeshifting Naj
"We had been convinced our contact was either naj, gar, or human, but it turns out she was all of it. For running, she turned into a shankeh and sped off."
— Disdreen, inspector

I love how the lighting turned out in this one; I aimed for strong top-down lighting first, but by happy accident this magical glow came out. I don't paint many naj, a race from my setting Genius Loci, because their anatomy from anywhere but the front is so difficult - they have six wings. I should get less lazy.

Headless Nakani by Ranarh
Headless Nakani
"Nakani must be killed. Should she become a darkheart - and I don't see how that could be avoided - the outcome will be disastrous. If you think the Glass War was bad, you have no idea what Nakani Darkheart could do."
— Togamoshu, crime lord

Nakani is one the first characters I got around to describe for my world Genius Loci. I sketched several designs first in pencils, then painted her switching between Painter and Photoshop. The tattoos are magical symbols, and I used the semi-surreal background to indicate her lunacy.
You can learn more about Nakani in my worldbuilding blog Starmaker's Gaze and see some WIPs and sketches in my CGSociety account.

Your gallery is lovely! I wish I had your skill!
 

I notice you’re from Germany. Ton of history there! I visited the Rhine Valley

and Black Forest years ago and thought it was gorgeous!

 

I found that a lot of people here in the U.S. don’t know much about their own

country, much less anyone else's.  :(

 

I post prayer updates about different countries. Part of the reason is to raise awareness about what's going on in the rest of the world.

 

Recently I’ve started my own private initiative; if I notice someone on DA  is from

another country, if I've done their country I let them know. It’s my way of letting them know that others are thinking about their home. :)

 

This update is about your home!

GOD bless
