Now also active on tumblr! For more art and also shitposting (but with art!)

Hello Internet, lovely meeting you all ^^
I'm Drosera-sundews. Just your friendly, neighbourhood pseudo-scientist. You can call me Sundews, or Loes (that's Dutch, pronounced as 'loser' without the "R"). Or anything else that at least sounds like my name, be creative :D

I am 20 years old, Dutch and a biology student. Biology and art are more or less my two great passions in life. I draw and write in my cheap ass student room inbetween dozens of practica and lectures, it can get hecktic, but I manage :)
I make mostly fantasy art. Both digital and traditional, and also do literature, animating and crafting on occasion. I love dragons and draw them a lot, you'll find loads of them in my gallery, but I also draw a loads of other stuff and experiment quite regularly. Better not trust your expectations XD

Just a quick update :) Hi everyone. *waves* 
So I didn't really round of inktober like I did last year, mostly because I just more or less collapsed at the end ^^ But, good news, I made it to the end without getting my tendons messed up! YAY, no months of bitter silence from me this time, promise. 
Either way, I also wanted to thank you all for the birthday wishes (especially you Fox, that was really cute) . I'm finally not a teenager anymore, wooohoo :D 

Either way I have two really intense courses now. So don't expect much acitivity from me for a week or two. One course is microscopy (did you know that if you look at a screen filed with white noise for a long time you start hallucinating, it's crazy!) the other vertebrate anatomy. Especially that one I think is probably going to leave a bit of influence in my drawings, be prepared :) 

Either way the professors were so kind to provide us with a list of all known bird species alive today (unless they were discovered after 2012, at least) So without ado, the most shitty personality test ever.
Send me a number between 1 and 9702 and I will tel you what bird you are!
See, it doesn't really take your personality into account, but it has birds and that makes up for it, right? :D


Bees? by drosera-sundews
Remake of a traditional ink drawing from last years inktober.
Because bees are lovely and very important :D 
Patrol by drosera-sundews
Another one! I'm really getting the hang of this style. It's so much more fun than realistic. 
Next time I should probably try something that isn't a horse or a dragon. Also still looking for a way to incorporate cooler lineart colours into this. Some day... :) 
Mjoll by drosera-sundews
The Mjoll, a terrifying beast that's a mix between a cow, a beetle and an octopus. It climbs in trees and eats children, as if it wasn't terrifying enough as it is XP 

The concept for the Mjoll belongs to the LARP association 'toys in the attic'. More info on their wiki:…

Will scrap later 

Just a little something to show that I'm still alive and making other things besides outrageously weird centaurs :) 
ANIMATION sea-lion taur
This is the last one for now. I'm on scedule now with the centaurs and dear Arwen has replied so it's my turn again. Anyone has any good suggestions? So far I'm considering either a hummingbird or a crow.

Also, we made an unfortunate centaurs blog. My life has officially spun out of control. This is the point of no return. Nothing but chaos lies ahead.…

Update: I just realized you can zoom in to ridiculous depths with this work. I was going to change that but, heh, it's pretty funny. Seriously try it! It looks so weird and messy up close!
