Proudly presenting...
Last week, "Darkness over Cannae" was officially released on the Essen Comic Fair! As we speak, the Indiegogo supporters all over the world are receiving their copies. A lot of you are among them. :) THANK YOU!!! This has been one hell of a year. 

For all those who missed the Indiegogo campaign, here it is in all its glory. I even have a tiny handful of sketched-in copies left from the convention. 

"Darkness over Cannae" is now available through amazon,de, amazon,co, uk, Etsy, and on the website. ^___^ Check here. darknessovercannae.com/buy/
The sketched-in copies are available only here: darknessovercannae.com/buy/spe…

hi, i am doing a paper about Fanart in my critical theory class and i was wondering if you could answer a question?
how, as a traditional media artist, has the intro of digital media such as photoshop and similar programs changed the way you do your fanart and the way you set up they way you start a piece?
your  choice to answer but it would be most appreciated with a quick answer.

Sorry, I didn't see this. I don't visit dA very often these days.

 I hope that you have been and remain very, very well Ms. Jenny!

 Might I please enquire as to whether you've been able to get your hands on a copy of THE WORLD OF ICE AND FIRE as yet? (I've been enjoying it for the past week or more myself, but am equally happy to hear that other readers have fallen for its charms).

I'm definitely going to get it, mainly because of Ted Nasmith. The ASoIaF fandom has mostly lost me otherwise. I'm still so busy with Cannae that I haven't really had much time recently though.

 I believe that you'll enjoy quite a lot of the work by other artists too! (it's rather good, although there is one unforgivable howler in the 'Daeron II' chapter of Targaryen History - the artist seems to have confused Baelor the Blessed with Baelor Breakspear … ). Still I'd say that if you enjoy the Appendices to LORD OF THE RINGS (which of us does not?) then you'll really enjoy this book, even leaving aside those pretty pictures!

 There's an awful lot in the book to enjoy in terms of inspiration - in terms of colourful individuals working their way across the pages of history - although I fear that descriptions are somewhat minimal, so I suspect that I myself and those of us hungry for the little details (as opposed to the big, juicy Facts!) will just have to look forward to FIRE AND BLOOD with as much patience as possible.:D (Big Grin)

Sorry; the last ASoIaF books have bored me rather aggressively. I probably won't develop any interest in the series again.

Hallo,
ich weiß, das hören Sie von vielen, aber Ihre Bilder sind einfach wunderschön. Ihr Stil ist wirklich einzigartig! Ich habe Sie irgendwann mal bei Elfwood gefunden, da war ich glaube ich 13 und ab da wollte ich wirklich gerne Illustratorin werden und ihre Werke haben mich motiviert mich zu verbessern :D Jetzt bin ich 23 und noch immer hoch begeistert. Ich finde im Moment zwar neben dem Studium nicht mehr so viel Zeit zum Zeichnen/Malen wie früher, aber ich hoffe noch immer irgendwann als Illustratorin arbeiten zu können :D

Machen Sie weiter so, ich bin sicher Ihre Arbeiten motiveren nicht nur mich. :)

Liebe Grüße,
Alice

Hey, I'd llike to ask you, do you have a database or something to look up for ancient roman names?
Reply
:icongold-seven:
Gold-Seven Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Characters, or random names? 

For Roman family names, I use this excellent German wikipedia article: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_r%…

Certain families used certain first names. Publius, Cnaeus und Lucius were often given in the gens Cornelia, but I've never found a Marcus or Quintus in that family, for example. Doesn't mean there weren't any, but it is conspicuous.

For people from classical antiquity, I use a comprehensive lexicon (Der Kleine Pauly).

I meant random names, for naming characters for a D&D campaign based in the Roman Empire :v So thanks! This list will help me. I you happened to have similar resources for other ancient languages, please share them :B

Jenny, sorry, but I just noticed that there was another link above
with three n's in Cannae(the direct link to your website, not the Facebook).
Better check your entire webpage here - you may have cut&pasted it
elsewhere, too. :-D

I love your work- you are amazing!

Are you recovered from the flood yet?

Gold-Seven Featured By Owner Edited Sep 29, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Oh my! I could have sworn I already fixed that. Thanks for the heads-up!

As recovered as we will be. What's lost will remain lost, and our insurance won't cover it; the basement is dry again and the walls haven't suffered - we got off lightly, in spite of everything. A lot of people in our village are having to dig up their gardens and insulate and dry their walls from the outside. Not fun.

Ok as a history buff, I'm totally sold on Darkness over Cannae, getting it the next payday! Btw I highly recommend you to submit it to the goodreads.com database, so the word can be spread.
