Hey-ho, everybody! :wave:

Here you can read who won the Hydra Design Contest made up by my sister Jelka :iconjerseydays: and me:

Pet Hydra Design Contest WinnersAlright! It wasn’t easy, phew, it really wasn’t easy, but we had to make decisions!
Tatataaa, drum roll… And here are the winners:
First Prize:

Here is the winning design already turned into a doll and ready to be sent to :iconlatralapidum:
Second Prize:
The Blue-Peacock-Tree-Hydra. What a pretty creature! :iconsafyia: is the winner of one of these little guys. She can choose between purple, red and spotted.
Third Prizes:

A griffon hydra by :iconNightlovesbirds: That’s so cool!
And a butterfly hydra by :iconpatpahootie:
Argh, I must upload the photos of the third prizes!!
Special Prize:
Everybody wins, so for all the other lovely designs we give 25% discoun

We had many great designs and it took us several days to come to a decision because all the entries were so beautiful. The winning design raised a lot of sympathy immediately, though... Maybe because of my love for sharks? ;)

As a special Thank You to everyone who participated, Jelka decided to give 25% discount for orders of unique custom made art dolls, as well as to her pre-made hydras! :party:

This contest was a lot of fun. Let's see if we can collect some ideas for another one...

Have a nice day! :heart:

Interview at…

YouTube channel:………

Knowledge follows the will to change...

Hi! I'm Rieke, a traditional artist from Germany who grew up drawing comics and cartoons, animals and nature and simply loves to draw and paint. I’m mainly self-taught, but learned how to use acrylic paints at a College of Further Education.

Shark Week painting WIP by rieke-b The Wisdom of the Grizzly King by rieke-b Phoebe Followed the Sun by rieke-b Splashing and Birdsong - for sale by rieke-b Little Princess Sonja 4, Piggies by rieke-b Leni and Tony by rieke-b

I'm one half of a creative team of sisters who work together closely, so I'm glad to have a spare brain, pair of eyes and hands roaming the house. :D
My older sis, Jelka :iconjerseydays: , creates gorgeous one-of-a-kind art dolls and I'm happy and proud when I can paint their faces and body parts.

Jelka is also a great author and comic artist and helped me to improve most of the artworks you can see in my gallery.
My family and pets, telling stories, humour, learning about animals and the search for chemical-free insight keep me together. :D

I can't tell you about all my projects and ideas because I prefer to show finished works than talking too much. My art tells a lot about me and my personality, anyway. ;)

Interests: caring for my pets (2 dogs, 1 cat), learning about nature and animals, traditional art, music, yummy organic vegan food
Favourite musicians: The Beatles & Paul McCartney's solo works, Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, Brian Setzer & Stray Cats, Tori Amos, Mari Boine, Sonny Landreth, Neil Innes & The Rutles, Sting, Rory Gallagher
Favourite authors: Terry Pratchett, Cesar Millan, Scott McCloud
Favourite artists: Don Rosa, Mort Drucker, Tome & Janry, Rien Poortvliet, Paul Kidby, André Franquin
Favourite words: Brot (bread), FWOOMP, Phalacrocorax carbo (Great Cormorant), Pi-pa-po, GLOOING :D

Traditional art commissions: Finally made a price list, yay! See my DA journal here:…

:llama: NO LLAMAS, please!! I don't collect them and I feel guilty when I can't return them.
