TheFieldAlchemist's Profile Picture
Annika L.
Artist | Traditional Art
Amateur-time traveller, professional hedge witch, hopeless nerd.

I adore art, but also lots of other things. I keep a small horde of stickbugs (phasmidae) and two giant millipedes. I am addicted to chocolate and excessive wool hoarding, I love books, gaming, handcrafts, unconventional cultural phenomena (like reenactement), celtic/viking culture and stuff I find in nature, like snail shells, leafes, bones, wings and claws. The appartment I share with my beloved partner looks like a small museum. Sometimes I work in a falconry in shows where we show medieval hunting. I also work as a zoo guide and scientific assistant of the botanical garden in my university. I tend to take sides with villains and antagonists, and especially misunderstood fantasy races. I can't watch Lord of the Ring without frowning when there's orcs being killed. Much affection for orcs and goblins from my side.
I love viking reenactment, and because of me being a poor student, I need to make most of the equipment myself. I taught myself tablet weaving, viking wire knit, naalebinding, bonecarving and sewing.

Being a neopagan, I try to spend much time out in nature watching and listening. I also try help protecting its beauty, that's one of the reasons why I study Biology. I'm currently doing my MSc.

I don't really have a favourite way to express art. I draw and paint landscapes, portraits, cartoons, scifi, fantasy, anthro, nude art and much more, although my favorite style should be folkloristic fantasy. I like to work with all traditional mediums.


of what you've done - Daud's tattoos
Look, I could pretend that I didn't grin like a horny idiot while drawing Daud's butt, but that would be lying.

As I mentioned in an earlier piece, this is fanart for the Dishonored-fanfiction "of what you've done". You can read it here:…

It's part II of the soulmate-AU in which Corvo and Daud find out that they share a soulmate bond. Daud becomes the new Royal Spymaster and him and Corvo need to work together to uncover a mysterious threat to the Empire while discovering the depths of their bond.

In the story, Daud has tattoos, and I decided to make a little fanart for Aescela. Also, bonus-Corvo, because I do hope things are going to happen in a near distant future. :iconpervplz:
 Since Daud's mother is from Pandyssia, a continent with jungles and ancient stone temples, I incorporated mayan and incan patters in the tattoos, and since viking art styles look surprisingly similar to many South American patterns I put in some of those too.

Anyways... hope you all like it!
of what you've done - Story Time
A little illustration for the Dishonored-fanfiction written by my associate Aescela over on AO3.

"of what you've done": Part 2 of the soulmate-AU. Daud is the new Royal Spymaster and just learned about the bond he shares with Corvo, the person whose life he ruined. Daud now has to deal with his guilt and regret while trying his best to understand the mystery that Corvo Attano is.

You can read the story here:…

The illustration belongs to chapter 5, in which Daud reads Emily a bedtime story and they both fall asleep: "Corvo carefully approaches them and gently pushes the blanket down. When he touches Emily’s sides to pick her up, she curls up tighter and grumbles softly, and Daud furrows his brow, but doesn’t open his eyes. “If you wake her up I swear I’m going to kill you with my bare hands. It took me forever to make her fall asleep,” he rumbles, his husky voice drowsy and low." :love:
Dr Aesclepius Zagel in Ojendorf
My alchemist/plague doctor costume has a new addition... An apron that looks like it had already seen quite some ̶d̶̶i̶̶s̶̶g̶̶u̶̶s̶̶t̶̶i̶̶n̶̶g̶ ̶ q̶̶u̶̶e̶̶s̶̶t̶̶i̶̶o̶̶n̶̶a̶̶b̶̶l̶̶e̶  interesting alchemistic expreiments. And yes, the rune patters on the lower end are inspired by Granny Rags' rune circle in Dishonored. I LOVED to wear it, it's so comfortable.
Garrett and Adrian - Even Nightmares Must End
More fluffy Adrian/Garrett fanart. I'm terribly addicted to brohne's lovely fanfiction about the Master thief and the watch captain and I'm waiting with baited breath for each new chapter. You can (and should, because that story is amazing) read it here:…
I'm one of the fourteen lucky bastards who got chosen to participate in the excursion to Svalbard, something the department for ecophysiology of plants does every few years. I'm so excited! :love:

We're going to do research on plants on Svalbard, visit the science station there and enjoy the arctic landscape.

Finally escaping the damn heat... Arctic ocean here I come. I'll be back in two weeks. See you then! :huggle:
