As you may have noticed already, I'm not so active on DA at the moment. That is because I finally got a temporary job at the university here (supervising students in discussion groups and correcting laboratory rapports and so on) and because I spend more and more time training martial arts.
But here comes the big news; I got offered a PhD position (to obtain the doctor degree in science) in a place called Tromsø. It's somewhere far above the Arctic Circle in Norway and 1200 km from where I live now (Trondheim, Norway). I will probably start in May, when my other job is finished, and have to move there of course. That means experiencing the midnight sun in summer and the northern lights in winter! I'm going to do research about how animals adapt to seasonal changes (especially at high latitudes) and will go more in detail about the physiological, genetic and behavioural changes related to circannual rhythms.
Together with the job now, my high training intensity and the adventures ahead, I can't guarantee that I answer all your comments/notes/replies. I do read them and I really appreciate comments! So if I don't reply ...don't worry - I have at least read them!!! If you really need an answer, just
me few times with notes. I answer them more quickly then comments (they have to tendency to get buried and lost) I will try to submit some art, at least sketches and such, regularly because I live without drawing is hard to imagine
Thank you all for the nice and motivating environment here on DA!!!
Anyway enjoy my graphic novel so far: ** Reign of Siderians - Theory of Mind ** Prologue Chapter 1 - Through Blue Eyes Chapter 2: The following past **Siderians- my original feline species**
(previously known as cheederians)
Siderians (Metafelis lamnis
) are large mammals of the order carnivora, family Felidae, and have the appearance of a powerful and mighty predator. They are build for stalking, a quick acceleration at high speed, making quick, flexible jumps and taking down large prey. The average siderian looks like a feline hybrid (a hybrid between the extreme type Siamese and Oriental longhair, tiger and some Eurasian lynx elements)as tall as a small horse (150-160 cm at the shoulder), large retractile claws and a large brain-cage. This highly cognitive species is able to use metaphysic energy for advanced techniques. They use their energy-sensitive lightals (little metal blades on their ears and muzzle) for this. The siderians roam the Northern hemisphere with the highest density in the Rocky Mountains, Norway & Sweden, Siberia and the Alps. Sirians live mainly solidarity or in pairs but can have friend and family bonds as well - however they all time hunt alone or in pairs - group hunting is a rare exception. They do not depend on the society but create common information and metaphysics resources they call 'metaclusters'. The advanced cognitive abilities and highly developed language makes them very anthropomorphic at as it comes to behaviour. However, siderians also show behaviour typical for felids, like purring and meowing like sounds
. You can meet some of my siderian characters here on DA, which all have an individual storyline and personality. Commissions
I'm selectively open for commissions- but am very busy so I can't guarantee anything! Note me for more info!
If I got extra commissions and got some extra money out of it, I donate it to the following organisations (emails of donation confirmations will be forwarded to the commission giver as prove)
-Feline Conservation Federation www.felineconservation.org/
-Cheetah Conservation Fund www.cheetah.org/
I'm rather busy and therefore I don't take requests. Email or note me if you are interested in a commission so that we can come to a price.
Traditional art is also possible, but only if you live in Europe. For more details you can send me note/mail.
These prices are excluding shipping costs. I live in Norway (Europe), so you have to seek out how much it costs to send an original to your country. I send digital art by e-mail. If you don't live in Europe, I only do requests for digital art.
I only accept paypal payments to firstname.lastname@example.org but from Norway and the Netherlands I accept payment by internet banking as well.
Mail/note me for more more details.
