Hello everyone! First of all WOW! We can hide resteems now!!! :O I love this so much, because I resteem more than average xD
So today I'm sharing with you some of my favorite posts that I've done so far. This is thanks to a contest held by @anomadsoul that you can check out here! Most of my posts on Steemit are creative as that is how I express myself. I love cute and creepy art at the same time and I often change my artstyle based on my mood. I'm pretty awkward in real life, probably because of moving so many times and changing many schools when I was younger (because of my parent's job). I prefer English, but it's not my native language nor is it common where I live. Luckily I get to use it with those closest to me, making communication a lot easier for me ^^
Almost all of my posts have detailed step by step explanations of my drawing techniques and often times my inspirations and reasoning. Only recently I started making shorter posts as I don't have as much free time as before. You can check out the original posts, by simply clicking on the post titles.
The cover image is from my ongoing Zodiac Series. I've made a lot of various Zodiac posts and this particular post includes everything ^^ I also shared my favorite childhood cartoons!
As Inktober has started, I feel it's appropriate to share my last year's Inktober art :D I love new art tools and this includes the scanner I got just for my art. It has served me great since I've bought it. My Inktober was unique in a way because I drew dragons based on the Inktober word list. I actually draw a lot of dragons, but instead of going into details about why here, you can check out my following post.
This was for @anomadsoul's previous contest ^^ The post is mainly me explaining why I love drawing dragons so much. I actually don't draw them as much lately. I've been going though lack of motivation and exhaustion lately, so I've been focusing on my health more than art. :)
This is my best dragon art so far in my opinion. I spent over 8h on this drawing and did my best.
This is my study painting of an incredible photo made by @hiddenblade. As soon I saw the photo it struck a chord in me, but I couldn't pinpoint the reason why right away.I don't draw humans much, but when I do, I go for the most mysterious ^^ This painting was a pleasure to make and I got to know @hiddenblade. I received permission before making and posting the art on Steemit. I included an original story in the post that I wrote inspired by the artwork.
So my idea now is that this mermaid is a descendant of Atlantians, who were formerly human. Atlantis is a lost city only known in legends. They were cursed because of failed magic and now they can only live underwater. They have longer life spans, but not immortal. Also the dark magic somewhat twisted them physically, making them into dark creatures. Most of them live in the depths because they cannot stand the light.This was one of the most challenging artworks that I've made so far. I did quite some research and tried to develop the character visually as much as possible. I'm proud of the final result and it's a pleasure to share the post again :)
I love a good mystery so I try to add some of that to all of my art. In particular I love fantasy books and in the post above I shared my all time favorite books. :)
As I love books so much and I tend to read several at once, it made sense to make some bookmarks.I tried several different techniques and showed how I used them.
Little Bird Drawing Tutorial With Steps
Beginner tutorials are quite hard to make, as you have to pick the easiest steps for all to understand. I'm pleased to say that a lot of Steemians managed to follow my tutorial with a great success. ^^ I'm really proud of this post. I'm a self taught artist and I've learned a lot thanks to other artists sharing their knowledge online, so I do my best to share what I know.
Last but not least! I actually do pixel art full time, but I can't share much of that. Occasionally I make pixel art for Steemit or for Pixel Dailies challenge on Twitter to challenge myself. This particular potions were for a Pixel Art weekly contest that used to be held on Steemit ^^ I enjoy trying out new techniques and programs.

This post took longer than expected so I'll continue Inktober art tomorrow!
There is only one photo of me on Steemit ;P
If you'd like to be tagged/untagged in my posts for notification, please let me know! I will only tag you in long posts.
Tomorrow I will hold a different version of Random Games to try to maybe revive the contest ^^
