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:…


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.


Jellyzilla by Ranarh
This is a sort of follow-up of a painting I once did for a friend. It was a pet jellyfish - one you'd have to walk with a nuclear sub and still be in trouble. On the bright side, it didn't need a leash and fed itself.
This is now a design up for voting on Threadless.
Rhoenoak: Pat and Mylah by Ranarh
Rhoenoak: Pat and Mylah
Two of the main characters of John Armamentos' "Rhoenoak" series, for which I am currently creating several illustrations. See more on Rhoenoak's facebook page
and more of my artwork for the series in my blog
Asgaan, queen of the orlas by Ranarh
Asgaan, queen of the orlas
"We had told out Rakshi so many times for treating his orlas like that. One day on the hunt, they turned on him, and we could only see him disappear under a pile of orla bodies, one of which I swear was a dwarf, but just as beastly."
— Grishti, hunter

Asgaan is another animal lord from my setting Genius Loci. The animals she commands are called orlas, and are favourite hunting companions to many peoples of Kitas; they're friendly and easy to train. I really like the idea of beastly humans running with animals; having a deeper understanding of nature, rarely seen in our world.

Check out Genius Loci in my blog Starmaker's Gaze and my website.
Lord of gubras Gahatenge by Ranarh
Lord of gubras Gahatenge
"One day my gubra stood up, bit my eldest son and ran for the forest. That was of course the day Gahatenge called them back to the wild, and we haven't been able to recapture any of them - it seems the more docile they were, the more wild they are now."
— Shehnarga, hunter

Gahatenge is the first illustration of an animal lord of my fantasy world Genius Loci (well, other than the burrmo princes Darous and Darem, who technically aren't animal lords but were stolen by one and raised as his heirs).

I tried some new techniques here, like the bokeh background and foreground blur, which I saw recently from Ilya Kuvshinov (KR0NPR1NZ) and liked it a lot. I think it's more suited for his artwork than mine, though; but maybe I'll give it another try.

Check out Genius Loci in my blog Starmaker's Gaze and my website.
Concept: Lozirian cave city by Ranarh
Concept: Lozirian cave city
"You'd think they know nothing of water in those dry lands; but they are in fact experts in finding, getting, refining, cleaning, and selling water."
— Mantanara, traveller

Concept for my world Genius Loci (…). On the desert continent Lozir, some peoples dwell along the sea in large caverns washed out by the waters, and build entire cities in them.

Hey, deine neue Signatur sieht cool aus!

Darf ich fragen, ob ich die im Wiki Aventurica auf deiner Seite hochladen darf? Ich sammel Signaturen von DSA-Künstlern, damit deren Werke leichter erkannt werden kann:…

Danke! Aber natürlich. Die Illustrationen für den Almanach habe ich aber noch mit meiner bisherigen Signatur unterschrieben, vielleicht wäre die besser, (auch) gezeigt zu werden? Ich könnte dir ein einzelnes Bild davon per Email schicken, wenn du mir eine Adresse zukommen lässt.
