René Puls

Who?

I am a software developer and freelance 3D artist (he/him) from Augsburg, Germany. I create apps and games for the Android platform, as well as fantasy 3D art.

During my first internet adventures in 1998, I found the name Kianga 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. Please keep in mind that this is fan art: I do not work for ArenaNet nor am I sponsored by them—I just love their work.
