(Full size:… )
Stian, a big white cat (a siderian) running his way to 'paradise'
"The core principle of freedom, is the only notion to obey" - from the song Gateways, by Dimmu Borgir.

Stian is most prominently present in my gallery, but he's NOT the white main character of my current comic (Theory of Mind) - that is Yves.
(Stian has also got his own folder ;)… )

Stygian Stígandr - The Infernal Wanderer

The big white feline named Stian who has invaded my life. His full name
(see above) means something like 'infernal wanderer'.
See here the deviation:…

From all the siderians I've met so far, Stian is by far the most special and powerful one. I love him definitely most. He will also appear as main character in the next graphic novel series I am working on). Note that Stian is NOT the white main character of my current comic (Theory of Mind) - that is Yves.

Time for other art!

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 17, 2016, 3:18 AM
 Some of you may already have noticed that I’m less active on DA and maybe also that the quality/spontaneity of my digital paintings is getting less. Since I have a full time job, I have less time and especially energy left for good quality digital paintings. I find that really a pity, but having to draw braindead while webcamming on skype, isn’t good for the quality. I also feel that I need to something else than digital art – at least temporarily. I’m definitely NOT abandoning digital art, as I still have a LOT of inspiration. I just need a break to recollect my drawing energy because all my last pieces appeared rushed. 

I will continue with my comic Theory of Mind, and my aim is to submit a page every two weeks. If I manage. The storyline is now getting more interesting and I have come halfway, so I will definitely finish ToM and maybe even speed it up if inspiration and motivation strikes :D I will not abandon digital art either and I will continue to submit sketches, charactersheets, conceptart and such once in a while. Just not every weekend anymore.

The good news is that I have three other major artistic paths to follow now. I’m seriously trying to get better at playing keyboard/piano and I’m learning fast at the moment. But this takes time…Then there are two other projects going on.

For several months ago I have started a sculpture of Stian (with polymer clay). I have come halfway now and I will go for perfection! Here are some examples from one of my favourite sculpture-artists on DA :iconmangakasan: - may aim is to make a sculpture of similar quality (although I don’t have the resin eyes and whiskers in my sculpture).

Lune OOAK by mangakasan Sabu by mangakasan Abaddon the soul collector by mangakasan beast of the forest by mangakasan

Then my other big artistic project is probably even more time-consuming, but super exciting at the moment. I have always been interested in non-human animal costumes (known a fursuits) and now want to make one myself. I’m NOT a furry though (therian to be specific), but I love fursuits and I have always made costumes of other animals since I was a child. I will make a what’s called quadsuit (for four legs) of my siderian-self

Jayme - me as siderian by BlackMysticA

Here are some amazing examples and inspiration sources of quad-suits and hyper-realistic masks and this is what I’m aiming at  (and I have decided for myself that I WILL succeed!).

And unfortunately my camera has died…so I can’t keep you updated with WIPS...

Siderians (Metafelis lamnis) are large mammals of the order carnivora, family Felidae, and have the appearance of a powerful and ambush predator. The average siderian looks like a felinehybrid: with the general narrow but powerful body shape of a tiger, the graceful appearance,long legs and facial anatomy inspired by Oriental cats and the big paws of an Eurasian lynx. They are as tall as a small horse (150-160 cm at the shoulder), but weigh less than a polar bear (between 300 – 600 kg). The braincase is large, and the unique folding pattern of the brain gives them exceptionally high cognitive skills and abilities to sense detailed information in metaphysic energy. They use their energy-sensitive lightals (little metal blades on their ears and muzzle) for this. Siderians roam the Northern hemisphere with the highest density in the Rocky Mountains, Norway & Sweden, Siberia and the Alps. Siderian societies are complex; they form dynamic family and/or groups which mostly resemble fission-fusion communities seen in domestic cats and spotted hyenas. However, siderians are independent of each other for hunting survival and can perfectly live solitary. They create common information and metaphysics resources they call 'metaclusters' and this is where individuals from all over the world can come together to exchange knowledge.

Siderians are not the only member of the genus Metafelis.
:bulletyellow: Javines (Metafelis arvalis) are a very close relative of the siderian and some would consider them as just a southern subspecies of the siderian. Javines and siderians can produce fertile hybrids but generally avoid interbreeding. Javines live in savannah, grassland and tropical woodland areas. They are generally smaller and finer build than siderians but otherwise look rather similar.
:bulletgreen: Canovines (Metafelis silvae) are smaller and more robust metafelines that mostly dwell in tropical rainforests and tropical woodlands. They are more solitary than the other members of this genus and tend to be rather conservative. Canovines look like tiger-clouded leopard hybrids; they have a slender but tiger like body, with short legs and a very long tail and are well adapted for climbing.
:bulletblue: Arctians (Metafelis arctica) are tundra-hunters living in prides like lions. Of all the metafelines, they are the ones mostly build for running. Their anatomy has similarities with the sabertooted cat Homotherium serum . They are smaller than javines and siderians, but their thick winter coat and the lion-like manes of the males make them look rather impressive.

See here the species sheets:
Siderian reference 2014-updated 2016 by BlackMysticA Javine reference sheet by BlackMysticA - the other two will follow…once.

This is the graphic novel- more a comic- that I’m working on right now. It is actually a side-line of my main story and the main aim is to learn how to make a comic. But I do love the story and the characters so I will finish it.

Large predators come more and more in conflict with each other and this is especially the case for siderians and northern hyenas in Eurasia. Betrayal and corruption invades the societies of both species. Yves, the little white siderian cub lost his parents in a fierce conflict. Saved by a hyena clan that passed by, he was raised to spy on his own species. The love with a beautiful black siderian, made him struggles to choose a side, while both parties try to manipulate him. He does everything to escape from their grip and tries to sue for peace between the two species. Yves has to use his mind carefully.

This is my main-story and will be the first volume of my ‘masterpiece’. It will not have the common comic-form but will be more a mixture of text, illustrations and some pages in comic style. I have already started working on this one, but it will take many more years.

The Scandinavian hometown of Sigrid, a young biologist has recently been rampaged by a ferocious siderian. Her father lost his beloved brother and he devotes his life to find and kill the murderer. Sigrid makes it her mission to find the reason behind the raid the increasing incidents of siderian attacks on people in general. Elsewhere, in the capital Eurasian metacluster, two intelligent young siderian males notice these conflicts too. They are quickly dragged into their self-determined role as detective and scientist. A few weeks earlier, in the forests of Norway, the fierce white siderian named Thalarctos storms into the neighbouring territories of Yava and her family. He accuses her favourite cousin, who has gone missing, for having murdered his son. Thalarctos promises that he will destroy everything that will hinder him from taking revenge. Yava and her other cousin Goran are getting worried and take action, while conflicts with people and other large predators start to become an increasing threat.

This is our land... by BlackMysticADon't mess with her by BlackMysticA

This is my main-story and will be the first volume of my ‘masterpiece’. The ideas are in my mind but the story is still developing

Disunity prevails between groups of people and siderians. Some fight for sustainable coexistence between humans and large carnivores like siderians, while some try to eradicate the other species. Fear, loss and suffering has ruined the lives of many humans and siderians. Scarred by the past, Stian takes the most rigorous measures of all siderians. Unable to live peacefully on a planet together with the species he hates most, he has only one mission: to get rid of humanity. Some siderians share the same rage and join Stian’s action group. Resistance comes from every corner but hope and hate is what keeps Stian and his followers alive.

Many thanks for the fave! ^^ :D
KalahariMeerkatfan Featured By Owner Edited Feb 7, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
I need to figure this out for Bela (small details)...

If Yves is dominant white, then would this mean that he has a hidden color underneath the white?

When I did Bela, I was thinking of the cat concept where they have 100% white spotting (or piebald) which masks the real coat color.
BlackMysticA Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2017   General Artist
Because as soon as the dominant white allele W is present, all other genes (like A-, B-, C- D-, I-, Tabby ect) can't be expressed anymore. All white cats still have these genes, but the white gene just prevents any pigment formation, so the other genes have just no effect.
The same is true for having 100% piebald spotting -(two S-alles of the s-gene: SS versus Ss for bicolours and ss for cats without white markings). Though I must say that the piebald spotting allele S is quite rare among siderians. So far I only know Niver and Håvard as piebald. The others like Goran and Mara have somethign that I have called 'marten' - just a counter shading dilution like… (and it can take all kinda variants; like that what Mara has, up to urajiro or even just a coloured zone on the spine). The marten-effect (as I call it) is caused by many genes acting together and it's very common for metafelines to have at least some form of this effect.

How was your holiday? Did you get good presents? ^^
KalahariMeerkatfan Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Is there a certain reason for why the Javine has such a steep slope on their brows and nose bridges? I was looking at the new chart again and this time I found my eyes being draw to the shape of the Javines' profile. It seems more drastic when compared to the Siderian or Arctian (although, I now see that it looks similar between the later and Javine). 

Another small question color point Siderians work like colorpoint cats? The kitten is born pure white but begins to develop color as it matures?
LupaWolfe Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
DO you do commissions? :)
BlackMysticA Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2016   General Artist
Most often I say no- just because I lack the time and energy to do anything else then my own art...sorry. I am curious what you had in mind as commission, though...but I don't think I can do it now. Too much other stuff to do and kinda flooded under my own inspiration-avalanche.
LupaWolfe Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haha, I know what you mean... 

Oh, I was looking for someone to possibly do the cover art for a book I'm writing. ^^
