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.
The sketched-in copies are available only here:…

Want your copy? Order it here! :)

Commission Info:… (Commissions are closed)

Please do *not* approach me with requests to draw your character for free, to enter your "competition" where I may put in eight hours of work for a chance of some pocket money, or do a commission for you in return for a mention on your website.

I'm a professional illustrator; I do this for a living.

Tolle Galerie!  ;)
BWByars Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2014  Professional General Artist
Thank you for your wonderful gallery. When I'm having a rough day, I go to deviant art and scroll through your work. Always inspires me.
Federdi Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2014  New member Hobbyist Traditional Artist
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,
Gold-Seven Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Vielen lieben Dank! Sowas freut mich immer zu hören - und wow, tolle Tuschezeichnungen! 

Viele Grüße,

Hey, I'd llike to ask you, do you have a database or something to look up for ancient roman names?
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:…

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).
HappyMilkXD Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2014
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.

you are an Illustrator from God, thank you for this <3
Gold-Seven Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Aw, thank you.
Duck-Empress Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2014  New member Hobbyist Digital Artist
Your art is awesome :)
loonyleo Featured By Owner Edited Sep 19, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
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 database, so the word can be spread.
Gold-Seven Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Sounds like a good idea! Thanks. :)
ElvenWolfen Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2014  New member Student General Artist
I've literally just stumbled across your profile.
And I gotta say: Thanks! I mean, it's not like you really know (or care) about some little artist on this website full of them, but...You've totally inspired me to keep to my dream.

I've always wanted to be an Illustrator!

Keep up the fantabulous (yes, that is an actual word...made by me.) work!

Gold-Seven Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Aw, thank you so much! That's such a great thing to hear. Good luck to you! 
ElvenWolfen Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2014  New member Student General Artist
You're very welcome!
Thank you very much ! :3
loonyleo Featured By Owner Edited Sep 10, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Long time fan here, from I think elfwood days, stopped by to see your new work, and delighted to see the new ASOIAF stuff. I hope you paint a Rhaeger Targaryen some day!
Seeshi-suin Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2014  Student Artist
You ever read Wheel of Time? Ugh, I would LOVE to see you do some WOT art. It would be so amazing.
Gold-Seven Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Sorry, didn't like that one :)
Seeshi-suin Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2014  Student Artist
SAD DAY! Ah well, it's not for everyone. Guess I'll just have to make my own fan art. ;)
Orphydian Featured By Owner Edited Aug 29, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist

are you familiar with Total War games?

There is a team of modders that develops a fascinating mos set in hellenistic era- Its wrongly called Europa Barbarorum due to its beginings. They need talented artists like you to help them to flesh out the mod even more after the first release a couple of days ago

The mod is a jewel of historical accuracy and eye candy graphics.

here you can see all the discusions regarding the mod…

If you feel generous and profficient enough pls let me know

Gold-Seven Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
I'm not much of a gamer, though I've heard of the mod. My problem is that, as a professional artist, being "generous" is often not an option if it means doing unpaid work. ;)
Orphydian Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Ofc. I suppose using some of your illustrations  for free is also out of question
