I love creating digital artworks in anime style,
especially for my few big fandoms.
The main reason why I joined dA, is to improve my art skills.
I'd love to get a job in the games industry one day.
Any questions? Don't hesitate to send me a note!
Thanks for visiting and have a nice day!

In celebration of our upcoming interactive comic Incantation, digitanny and I decided to hold this great contest. We'd love to see everyone’s take on our dear characters!
In order to participate you have to draw an artwork with one (or more) of the Incantation characters in it.
World info: It's a steam-punk inspired, not very modern world - so no electricity, cars or the like!

Skills: Good at crafting (job: carpenter), can use magic but can't control it yet

Lea is the main protagonist of the comic. She's looking after her little brother Sam since their parents disappeared. Also she works as carpenter and repairs their desolate home in her free-time. They live at the edge of a forest, close to a little village.
When a mysterious comet hits her house, Lea gets a tattoo with magical powers she can't control yet. Also the Blop appears and she goes on a quest for answers.

Sam is Lea's little brother and a sprightly boy. In contrast to Lea, he loves animals and he is very bright for his age. Mostly he reads or plays with his cat Geppetto in front of the house.
Sam and Lea are very close, but after the cosmic incident, nothing stays the same.

The Blop is a magical creature, which originated from Lea's tattoo. He is acting as little imp, who tries to get her on the dark side. Mostly, he is in a bad temper and he also swears a lot.
