I have been absent from Elfwood for some time now, since I came across DeviantArt and liked it very much. Now I noticed that this site has changed a lot since I last visited, and is still much more focused on Fantasy/SciFi than dA. So I'll be uploading some new stuff here from time to time, but I cannot guarantee much activity. At the moment I'm doing my bachelor in Computer Science at ETH Z├╝rich, so my artistic time is sadly limited. I've always liked drawing, since I was just about old enough to hold a pencil. When I was younger, I used to love fairytales, then I startet to devour everything and anything to do with Fantasy. There is a beauty and sense of wonder in worlds where dragons roam and magic is real. It is my mission as an artist to bring some of that magic into our world as well. I'm a jack of all trades when it comes to art, I draw and paint in traditional media (watercolour mostly, but I experiment with acrylics and pastels as well), I do a bit of polymere sculpting from time to time and I dabble in wire-wrapped jewelry. I recently got into digital art as well, in addition to painting I also enjoy modeling, texturing and animating 3D characters.
