Hello, I am an independent artist living in the United States. I go by "Nyx Aurelia" as my artist name. I was previously an engineering student at UCLA, but decided I wanted to pursue art omy own terms.
As an artist I love painting characters and scenes inspired by a mix of high fantasy, mythology, games, and anime. My ultimate goal is to develop my own project "Iteration", a medieval-cosmic universe, and an epic tale which I hope to make a reality through my original paintings and stories.
For serious inquiries, please contact me by email or Discord:
I don't post much besides my art on social media - I tend to update and chat most on Patreon and Discord, and I post all my process videos on YouTube. But if you would like my art in your feed, you can find me @nyx_aurelia on Instagram, Twitter, Artstation, and Bluesky.
If you'd like to support and stay closely connected to my work, you can support me on Patreon for regular behind-the-scenes updates & high-res versions.

In 2017, I started learning by myself and drawing my own work. First drawing anime with pencil and then with watercolor. These are mostly on my Instagram account. My drawings slowly became motivated by creating my own characters, and my own storied universe "Iteration".
So in 2021 I started painting digitally in order to match the style I wanted for "Iteration". That year, I often watched WLOP's videos and tutorials to help me get a grasp on how to approach digital art, and his work influences my style quite a bit.
Afterwards, wanting to forge my own unique style, I have started to experiment with techniques on my own. From there, I have come into work as a professional artist.

I'm an occasional gamer. Hades and Ender Lilies are examples of games I like. I occasionally also play League of Legends and osu!
I used to swim, but am not as interested anymore. Same goes for watching anime (I have some knowledge of older ones like Akame ga Kill, Code Geass, Elfen Lied, etc.), though I'm slowly picking it up again (Jujutsu Kaisen and Chainsaw Man, etc).
I love fountain pens, fine stationery, and mailing things. I've also dabbled sparingly in building computers and keyboards - my current computer, keyboard, and keypad I use for art are all custom built :D
