Username Raven + Rune + Luna = Raveruna. Pronounciation: Ra (like the Egyptian god) ve (like the ve in vent) rune (like rune) a (like the a in art)
Height 5.9 ft / 179 cm
Gender Female I guess. Certainly not feminine. Somewhere in the middle.
Star Sign Sagittarius, ascending Scorpio. Not much Sagittarius in my personality though.
Languages German and English, want to learn Icelandic really bad.
Hobbies Visual/Crafted Art (I'm a jack of all trades and always try new things), Reading and Writing, Enjoying Music, Swimming. That's it. I do literally nothing else. I don't do things with other people, all I want is to be left alone with the lazy things I enjoy.
Art Beginnings I have been drawing since I was a wee girl. I was always very introverted and never had many friends, was often used by others or made fun of. The only thing that gave me peace was drawing and reading. For the longest time I used nothing but graphite pencils for my art, you can still find a few of those pieces in my gallery. 2010 I got my first drawing tablet and started to get into digital art as well, and a few years ago I discovered my love for black paper and pastel pencils. I always love to try out new art forms, so once in a while I craft things or use new techniques. I am completely self-taught in everything I do, all I know I have learned from online tutorials and making my own experiences.
Art Inspiration Nature, Music, my dreams and my beliefs are my biggest inspiration. Mythology (a lot Norse but others as well) is another big part of it, especially when it comes to my headworld 'Elennya'.
Elennya? Elennya is the world I 'live' in in my (day)dreams, the place I escape to. I deleted a lot of the things I shared about this world, though - Elennya has existed for more than a decade... and these old things didn't reflect me and my interests anymore, so there has been a lot of changes. But I do plan to write and draw more about it in the future.
Elennya is not your typical fantasy world - sure, there are dragons, gryphon and a lot of other beloved fantasy animals you all know... humans are nowhere the dominating species, though. Elennya is planned as a series of stories that each follow a different character through their life, called the 'Tales of Elennya'. Cheesy name, I know. You might find some fragments of those tales in my older gallery. They will be completely rewritten as I have grown in my language and in my mind and heart as well, so don't expect a direct continuation of these.
Religion/Spiritual beliefs I am Asatru (faith of the Aesir). We don't see the gods as something we have to obey. The virtues of the gods is something we strive for to give us strength and to lead us on the right way with their help. They are role-models and the stories they told are for us to learn from. While Asatru is not a belief that worships nature per se, I do so.
So what's with the all runes? I love to work with runes, and I've been doing so for seven years now. My knowledge of runes is based on historical facts and speculations on which I build my own opinions, thoughts and beliefs. I want to keep it as free of New Age esoteric influences as possible.
If you are curious about runes yourself, please be careful what information on the web you want to trust, there are a lot of newly invented things around and sadly Nazis are still abusing some of these symbols as well. If you don't know were to start researching, feel free to drop me a message and I'll take you under my wing.
And If you are one of those aforementioned nazis: I hope you get eaten by Garmr and get shit on Hel's doorstep.
Favorite Color The color of the midnight sky, Icy blue, silver, black... but I love all colors. Except green.
Favorite Animal Corvids and all kinds of Cats. Once again though, I love all animals except a few of choice... like mosquitoes. *shudder*
Favorite Music Metal, Folk, Medieval or a mix of both. Goth rock too.
Favorite Artist Hans Werner Sahm, Todd Lockwood, Ravynne Phelan.
Favorite Movie/TV Series Dragonheart. Draco was the first dragon I saw, and I still love the movie dearly. It's the reason I developed such a big love for Dragons and other creatures as well as medieval Fantasy in general. And of course Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit. And Star Wars!
Favorite Book A Song of Ice and Fire and books written by W. Hohlbein.
Favorite Dish Don't have one. I eat because I have to.
x I'm a pacifist in RL... x ..yet I always fall in love with dark and murderous characters. Huh. x I love sad stories that make me cry three days later still. x Personally I'm aromantic, but I like romance on paper (not the schmoopy kind). I like the idea of it but that's it. x I'm an introvert. x I like to act tough but I cry very easily (I also start crying when I'm angry, which is kind of counterproductive) x I don't smoke and very rarely drink alcohol. x I have social anxiety (on the internet as well), so yes I want to talk to you, but I probably won't. At least I won't make the first step. OTL
