Who?

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

If you’d like to know more about my personal history and career and don't mind me rambling a bit, I've written a longer post about it. I also have a list of tools that I use for my work and personal life, if you’re curious about that.

Contact

My preferred social media platform is Mastodon, but I also have profiles on Bluesky and other sites. Feel free to follow me there if you’d like to stay in touch!

You can also send me an email, or leave me a note in my anonymous mailbox.

Navigating this website

There are four main sections: Pages about specific topics (like my commission info), articles (basically blog posts), creative projects, and mementos (mostly art I have received from friends over the years).

You can also browse all of these by categories (like 3D art or virtual reality), characters (like my charr warrior), or collections (like Charrtober 2021).

If you’re looking for a specific page, try the quick search or the site map.
