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:…


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.


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.
Hatami spacesuits by Ranarh
Hatami spacesuits
Spacesuits for a gaming group playing the NOVA rpg. It was fun to come up with these; one crew member modified the suits from two existing models into these more personalized versions, and another character designed the colours.
As you can see, I went all in with the shiny scifi effects and lettering. Not shown: the ship's cat, Tiny.

I often find it hard to decide between retro scifi and really advanced ultra tech when creating scifi concepts. Should things look oldfashioned, like in the Alien films, with cathode monitors and keyboards with actual keys? Or super advanced like After Earth, with spaceships made from fabric?
The Empty Lands by Ranarh
The Empty Lands
"The plasmat city, the East Knights' headquarters, even the rhu'khach, are supposed to be in the Empty Lands. Probably all lost left socks, too?"
— Inkarmil, traveller

I wanted an illustration for the Starmaker's Gaze blog article about the Empty Lands. But how do you paint a landscape that by its very definition is bare of any interest? I finally found a solution in a dramatic sky, but not before producing several failed attempts that became concepts for other corners of the world.

Check out Genius Loci in my blog Starmaker's Gaze and my website.
Aero Origins: Meeting Room by Ranarh
Aero Origins: Meeting Room
A chapter piece for Desert Ski Films' "Aero: Origins" story. These four brothers each have special skills which they will have to use defending their home.
It was a lot of fun to draw the armours and the sci-fi room. Interiors usually scare me, but this wasn't so mean. Check out Aero on the Desert Ski Films website,, and see more art from it in my blog
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:…

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

John 3:16
