Who?

I am a freelance 3D artist and former software developer (he/him) from Augsburg, Germany creating furry fantasy art and VRChat avatars.

During my first internet adventures in 1998, I found the name Kianga (pronounced key-UN-ga) in a Swahili dictionary, translated as “burst of sunlight after rain.” It reminded me of the beautiful ending scene from The Lion King, and I chose it as my online nickname. I learned that it’s a female name only after I had used it for almost every online account. It’s nice and short though, and I still like the image.

Much of my artwork is inspired by the fantasy MMO Guild Wars 2 and its fierce battle cats, the charr. I do not work for ArenaNet nor am I sponsored by them—I just love their work.

If you'd like to know more about my personal history and career, you can find a longer post about it on my Patreon. I also have a list of tools that I use for my work and personal life, if you're curious about that.

I have zero tolerance for racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, pedophilia, or zoophilia.
