Calijn de Jong

I'm Calijn de Jong (you may also know me by my nickname Tiamat, which I use on forums). For those who take a look at my picture, I'm not the brown and white one. No, that redhead hugging the horse, that would be me. As for the horse, that's McFlynn. He's my Gypsy Vanner horse, and he is now two years old. So...what else can I tell you, except the obvious fact that I'm crazy about horses? Let's see... I'm a 19 year old dutch girl, and a high school student. I love to read, write, draw and paint all things related to fantasy. (Oh, by the way, if you don’t want to read all this boring stuff about me, just scroll down the page to my artwork). My favourite artist is Brian Froud, and my favourite writers are Robin Hobb and Tolkien. My favourite themes are fabulous beasts and fairytale creatures. Mostly horselike things, because I do best at equines. My favourite medium are Karisma coloring pencils, second favourite are pastels (I work with al kinds of materials, though I hate oils - cleaning up after your done with them is a hell of a job). NOTE: My pictures all include a copyright sign, my personal logo, the blue dragon. I'm sorry for this, but as some of my work has been spreading around the internet, I must take measures to protect my artwork. If you want to use my pictures on your website or for something else, please ask my permission first. Furthermore, some of the artwork on this gallery is for sale. I also take on commisions. For more information about that, you can mail me. I also sometimes may take on art requests or art trades. Enough talking. Enjoy the artwork!

Wild Magic - Prologue

This is the prologue of the high-fantasy story 'Wild Magic'. *** For a description of the world in which the story is set, you can read 'Wild Magic - Prelude'. *** “Wild Magic” is a co-authored project by me and Rick Samual (who is not an EW member). I have his permission to post this story to my EW library. *** In this short prologue you will get a glimpse of the worries that trouble the Wysards and the Petari of Damarre. Future chapters will be more voluminous.

Wild Magic - Prelude

'Wild Magic' is an (eventually) novel-lenght high-fantasy project, by me and Rick Samual (who is not an EW member, but I have his permission to post the story to my EW Library). *** We decided to start the story with this prelude, to be able to tell the readers something about the world and the history of that world, and of the (often strange) peoples that inhabit it. *** I have also uploaded the prologue of 'Wild Magic'. The first chapter will follow soon.
