To anyone who's interested in seeing the process of my recently finished mural painting; I've recorded all of my livestream sessions and made one video out of it.
I didn't stream everything, because  I didn't plan big streaming sessions for those. They were mostly tiny details that couldn't be seen anyway.
I'm sorry for the bad quality, I streamed with my crappy webcam. :D

Hey there!

I'm Meike, but most people know me as Maquenda, Maq for short.
Animals and nature have always facinated me, even when I was a little kid. By observing I learned to draw by myself ever since I could hold a pencil.

I've had a few different phases where I would draw one type of animal. First they were horses, then parrots and other birds, then dogs, wolves, cats and ofcourse dragons and unicorns. The only animal I rarely drew were humans... :P

When I was 12 I started to draw Lion King fanart and I joined TLK FAA. Since then I only drew lions and anything that had to do with TLK. You can still see I'm pretty much stuck in that phase... :P
The TLK community has meant a big deal for me. I made a lot of friends and met amazing people that inspired me. Therefore I'm very grateful, because it helped me to improve and made me less lonely during Highschool.

One of my passions is also watching animated movies (besides TLK :P). It was a big part of my childhood and it still is. Because of this, I started to follow the course ''Animation and Audiovisual Design''. I recently graduated and now I'm going to ArtEZ in Zwolle ad I'm following the course ''Illustration'' now. Lets hope I can make it!

I'm currently trying to get out of my boundaries and improve more on my human skills.
Feel free to talk to me, PM me or leave a comment. I'm quite friendly (unless it's way too early xD) and I love to make friends and I always try to reply.
I don't do trades anymore but I'm open for commissions. For more info you can read my journal, or ask me about it in a PM. :)

Hey man! So I have a question, your OC is she a breed that other people can use? Like no copyright or anything but like we make our own of her species? 

Thank you!
