Hello! I am Monika and I live in Poland (yes, this not-so-well-known country over the Baltic sea =])

I like to draw since I remember but I am also a mother which takes a lot of my time. I love fantasy, animals (I have two kitties), horse-back riding and nature in all her beauty. I'm always open for meeting new people and any suggestions about my art, so if you ever need something from me simply send me a note I'll try to answer as soon as I find a time.

You may be asking about my email address:

Step by step animation
I made a little animation showing how I was drawing one of the portraits I am doing recently. I am still rather busy with kids, they are really time consuming, believe me! :D

 Personally I always liked such gifs, so now it is time to show one of  my own (: Gosh when I look at it now I feel sorry for this poor girl I painted! Her face changed so much it looks almost painful

Final drawing:…
Cador by Aomori
Portrait of Cador from Chaos Edge
Character design here:…

Another from the big and still getting bigger series of portraits :aww: This is a remake of an older drawing I did nearly exactly two years ago. Phew I improved a lot by those years :la:

Draw This Again - Meme by Aomori
Draw This Again - Meme
The drawing on the left was not my most favourite drawing from 2013... Actually  I liked it very much just when I finished it, but soon I started to think that it needs some tweaks here and there...

At last I found out time and will to work on it more. Changes are quite noticeable :aww: I learned a lot about face muscles during those years... eyes are still cartoon-y but also much more realistic, I am pretty happy with this semi-realism and it is not my intention to draw photorealistically. Oh and I am much better in archiving interesting skintone what was my low-side for looong time!

So this meme is not really showing my overall improvement, but just and improvement in drawing portraits. Male portraits to be exact. And it was not necessarily my most favourite drawing from that year, here are few that I still like, this one was maybe one of the worst (sorry Cador, it was not my intention to hurt you so! D:)

Full size of the 'after':…
Original meme:…
White by Aomori
Isn't she a beauty? :la: I am super happy about this portrait, I am usually my worst critic but not this time and it feels so nice :phew:

Actually I was excited to draw this character since I read her description - maybe this is not the most unique design ever, we know a lot of characters with white hair and porcelain ski, but I just felt she is going to be a pleasure to work with :heart: I wanted to leave her for the very end of all portraits I am doing for Daresta, but since I started the sketch I just had to finish it :)

Character (c) :icondaresta:
Waterside animals by Aomori
Waterside animals
Do you recognize all of these animals? :D

It is an illustration I did for a biology textbook for 3rd classes of the primary school for one of the polish publishers. It is showing fauna and flora from Poland so children can learn about it. The composition was slightly different in original and animals were a in a little different places but I changed it to made it look better as a 'normal' illustration ( for example there was nothing in the centre because two pages connects here and there was a little bit more space in the sky for texts). I hope you'll find this interesting to look at :aww:

The ladybug and duck are so big because there were names of the parts of their bodies around them

Quick update

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 20, 2015, 2:15 AM

Commission information | Art usage | Horse art RPG | FAQ - read before you ask

Hello there! :wave:

I would like to write a journal entry that might be a good 'opening' on my profile - the last one surely is not -  and to share with you some small plans I have for art-future of mine.

So, let's begin. Since now I am close to the the expected date when I'll meet my second baby I won't take any new commissions. I was planning that I will finish those I had somewhere in December, not in February! Thank you all for the patience with me :hug: Expected birthrate is somewhere in the middle of the march so just  a month left! and the doctor is still not sure if it is going to be a boy or a girl. it is like 70% for a boy but I still have to think about two names and I can't made up my mind)

In the nearest days I will submit to the gallery few old artworks I was about to show you million of times and I will slowly continue working with Daresta who always has something for me that needs to be done :aww:

Oh and I have few random sketches from Dragon Age: Inquisition, I may redo one of the info full artwork? Or I will just concentrate on playing, because I'd love to finish the game while I still have some time left :giggle:

  • Listening to: Escaflowne soundtrack

Thank you so much for sharing those pose charts and tutorials! They're definately worth donating points for, it helps me a lot with drawing practice.
As for your art, I'm not that into horses (somehow, that sounds very wrong...  :lol: ), but I really love your portraits and landscapes (Forgotten Mountain is a fave) and your colorwork is beautiful and detailed. Keep it up!

May a drive of noble dragons circle your head today, showering you with earned praise and wonderful, intricate presents... May your friends think of you and smile and laugh, may those you love think of you and feel better and hope to see you soon.  May the year's journey 'round the sun that begins today leave you wiser, happier, more learned and eager to take a running start at the next one, and may it all begin with these sincere wishes that you have a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
