Duesterwald by AriyaLothiriell
One of my Inktober drawings I started two months ago but just finished today. XD I really need to set myself deadlines to get a faster workflow. :/

It based on Tolkien works. Two elves sitting in the trees of Mirkwood and trying to figure out the queer stuff going on there long time before Bilbo starts his journey to the lonely mountain.
Hope you like it. :)

No refs used.

Brush/Lightningstudy by AriyaLothiriell

Wanted to test some new brushes and study a for me difficult light situation. Not to accurate according to features or hair. Was a quick one. 2 hours.
I also tried the first time to use the smudge tool. Not sure if I like it but will experiment more with it.

Original can be found here:…

Planeheadstudy by AriyaLothiriell
Study of a plane head I did some weeks ago. Was a practise for working with the lassotool and gradients in the workflow. I also focused on lightning of course. :)

Hi, =)

My name is Christina and I'm studying 'Intermedia Design' at Hochschule Trier in germany. My goal is it to be a professionell illustrator and concept artist someday. Currently I'm working on my painting and sketching fundamentals what means I do a lot of boring studies, still lifes and constructing random objects in perspective. I carry a sketchbook with me wherever I go and try to make at least one sketch a day. Even it's just a one minute sketch of a bug sitting on my window or weird random stuff from imagination. :) Persistence is the key to get this shit done!
Though my journey has just begun and is full of obstractions I'm confident to reach my goal someday.

Thanks a lot for all the lovely feedback of you guys I recieved here so far! I really appreciate it. <3


Feel free to follow:



NOT AVAILABLE FOR COMMISSIONS! Still studying for the next two years and I want to use my free time to get better at my Art.

My gosh, your art is stunning ~ I'm totally blown away by it (this is aronnaxs from a03 btw) :) 
AriyaLothiriell Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Aww~thank you so much! Glad you like it. <3
But nothing compared to your stories and omg you are just 19? Are you kidding me? How it is even possible to write in such a beautiful way when you are just 19? You really have a great talent there my dear!
And please think about that commission thing and contact me when you did so. :)

You inspired me to do a lot of Tolkien related art lately and I would love to illustrate some scenes of your stories if that is ok for you? Just for the sake of it and paying my respects for you with it.
Of course I would link your stories and credit you then.
KathyRose Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2015
Oh, and also, thank you for the watch! x 
KathyRose Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2015
Omg thank you xD That means so much, because I always look at people younger than me who do amazing art and I'm like nooo how?? But thank you for your sweet, sweet words :D 

Oh wow oh my gosh yes of course. I would totally totally love to see them! Out of curiosity, what ones were you thinking of doing? :)

Oh and btw, is it ok if I friend you on Facebook? c: 
AriyaLothiriell Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Of course you can add me! Would be glad if you do so. :)
I will write you in private on Facebook then and tell you about the scenes. It's a bit difficult for me here because I need to keep up some kind of professional image. Some of my mentors and fellow students are watching me here. Haha. I'm screwed. XD
